BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Fans of anything from gaming to comics are coming together at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.
FAN EXPO Boston is being held all weekend long.
Show Director Andrew Moyes said that more than 50,000 fans are estimated to attend the event.
“That might sound intimidating but our mandate here is to deliver the ultimate fan experience,” Moyes said. “It’s a celebration. You discover new fandoms, you celebrate with the community, and you find a real sense of belonging.”
Some of the attractions include meet-and-greets with content creators and celebrities, a costume contest, and an assortment of workshops and seminars.
“We’ve got an exhibit floor full of retailers and artists. We have a family zone, so there’s heaps of family programming as well. So, truly there’s something for everyone,” Moyes said. “Even if you didn’t think you were into it, you’ll find a sense of belonging here at FAN EXPO Boston.”
