Icon By The Sea Gaming Convention Coming to Johannesburg This April

We're already about to head into a new month. April is just about here, and with it, more gaming conventions are happening all over the world. If you're going to be in South Africa, particularly Johannesburg, from April 7th to the 9th, you might just want to stop by Icon By The Sea.

From the website:

ICON in Johannesburg is the largest annual consumer hobby gaming and comic event in Southern Africa. Each year thousands of enthusiasts converge from all over the country for a long weekend of interactive gameplay, comics & collectibles, hobby-related events, cosplay, anime screenings and a variety of other events at this virtual Mecca for gamers and hobby enthusiasts.

With more than 2,000 visitors each year in Johannesburg and more product introductions than any other game and comic event in Southern Africa, ICON is THE place where consumers, game distributors, comic retailers and media entertainment distributors get together to experience the latest and greatest in the industry.

We are proud to be bringing the same experience to Durban, for the THIRD year in a row. We have seen such incredible growth since the inaugural Durban event in 2015 that we are moving to a venue more than three times the size of our previous venue in order to accommodate our growing number of attendees, exhibitors and events. We expect well over 1000 visitors to attend this year and welcome you to share in the spotlight and reap the rewards by exhibiting at ICON in Durban, or as we call it, ICON by the Sea.

ICON will take place from 6 to 9 April, 2017 at Old Mutual Sports Hall in Glenwood. If you would like to exhibit at ICON we have various stall configurations available in the exhibition halls and all the necessary forms to apply are included.

We look forward to seeing you there!
