FACTS to organise two editions per year

Flanders’ number one Comic Con open to the public in April and October 2016.

Last September, FACTS 2015 welcomed over 45,000 fans to its 25th and largest edition yet. At the request of the ever-growing number of visitors, FACTS is now also organising a spring edition on 2 and 3 April in Flanders Expo, Ghent. 

FACTS spring edition

  • Larger surface area
    With a surface area of over 44,000 m², the spring edition of FACTS will be larger than ever. The organisers wish to use the additional space (11,000 m²) to offer visitors even more comfort and create additional room for workshops, masterclasses and actual experience.
  • International dealers
    As always, dealers from all across Europe and the States will sell their wares at FACTS 2016: from unique limited-edition action figures to comics, replicas of space ships and loads more…
  • Cosplay
    Fabrics, felt, mousse, paint and endless hours of work. FACTS will continue to go all out to cement its reputation as an event where fans love to show up in their favourite outfit and take part in world-class Cosplay competitions.
  • Gaming zone
    From FPS to MMORPG and so much more: the possibilities in the game zone are limitless. This is where games companies big and small showcase their latest top creations.
  • Fan clubs
    In 2016, too, ‘fan’ is short for ‘fantastic’ and ‘full of fantasy’ so expect even more breathtaking stands with replicas as well as sets and costumes replicated in detail.
  • International actors and comics artists
    FACTS sticks to its recipe of international top artists mixed with up-and-coming talent.

‘Experience’ even more

Throughout the weekend, visitors can immerse themselves in the FACTS atmosphere.

Fans can look forward to a larger surface area, exclusive collectibles, more stars, more first-hand experience, additional workshops and masterclasses, more cosplay, ... 

The spring edition of FACTS 2016 takes place on 2 and 3 April in Flanders Expo, Ghent

About FACTS

***MEDIA GALLERY***

FACTS, Your Belgian Comic Con, is the biggest pop culture event of the Benelux, where movies, series, games and superheroes come to life. Twice a year, FACTS transforms the halls of Flanders Expo in Ghent into a magical spectacle, with Hollywood stars, international artists, thousands of fans dressed up as fictional characters and enough surprising activities to keep your mouths watering for a whole weekend. 

FACTS has been around since 1993 and has over 25 years of know-how in the comic con world. On top of that, FACTS is backed by ‘Heroes’, a European network of 11 pop culture events spread across Belgium, The Netherlands, Spain and Sweden. The Belgian event ‘Made in Asia’, for example, is one of those sibling events.

The next FACTS is held on April 6-7 2019, in Flanders Expo Ghent. If you’re even remotely a fan of fantasy, science fiction, comics, anime, cosplay, video games, board games, films and TV series, then FACTS is an event you don’t want to miss.
