What Visitors Say

I had such a great time. Fantastic guests and amazing cosplayers. It was my first time cosplaying and I had so much fun. Wonderful stalls, friendly staff and such a great relaxed atmosphere. This is my third year going and I'll definitely be back next year. Well done EM-Con.

This was my first EM-Con and we had the best time! Well organised and fab atmosphere, but above all the guests were amazing! Lots of laughs were had and so nice to spend time with such legends.

Absolutely loved EM-Con again this year. It's definitely getting bigger and better. Fantastic guests, great friendly atmosphere and still extremely reasonably priced. Can't wait until next year.

My third Em-Con and it does just get better every year. I had an absolutely cracking time in costume both days. Well organised and plenty to do. My kids' first con and they can't wait for next year! Great job EM-Con and the Arena.

This was our first convention so really didn't know what to expect. I was worried about taking two high energy children, but everyone was so patient with them. We were amazed how our little girl (20 months) reacted. She just loved everything, including the zombies! Special thanks to Scampi and Twirl who made her day. My partner was very apprehensive about going as it isn't really his thing, but he got involved and loved it. We will return to this convention every year, it was a great family day out.

Em-Con is one of my favourite conventions in my con-calendar. I've been the last three years and it just keeps getting better and better! Very well organised; knowledgeable and friendly crew; great guests; and there's something about the ambience of the venue that other cons lack which I absolutely love. Highlight of yesterday was The Walking Dead talk which was a great insight into the show and a whole lot of fun! Roll on next year's event... can't wait!

What The Press Say

EM-Con was a very enjoyable day out – to consider this is only the convention’s third year, and the first time it has spanned two days, is worth a lot of praise. If the team behind EM-Con continue this rate of growth then expect them to be pulling in bigger and bigger guests over the next couple of years. It might not be situated in London but EM-Con is developing into an unsung gem amongst the UK’s conventions.

We had a fantastic time at the event, trawling the stalls, meeting the stars and being frightened by zombies! But it was the fans who made the day, with their bold and brilliant costumes in tribute to their favourite characters.
