SLC Comic Con 2013
Salt Lake City, Utah
Where: Held at the Salt Palace downtown SLC, UT
2013 was the first year Salt Lake City held a Comic Con event. Earlier in the year it started off at a smaller venue but popularity and ticket sales quickly drove the show organizers to migrate to the state’s largest indoor venue the Salt Palace. That wasn’t enough. With over 75,000+ estimated attendees the place was packed. No one minded because it was amazing. It was the single largest geek gathering SLC had ever seen! If you weren’t there in costume you felt out of place.
SLC Comic Con 2013 had 100’s of guests… to name a few, Lou Ferrigno, Dwight Schultz, William Shatner, Stan Lee, David Prowse, Peter Mayhew, Dirk Benedict, Ray Park, Weta Workshop, and more.
Wesley Productions had the opportunity to exclusively represent ABC Utah (KTVX) and CW30 (KUCW) . Our footage was used on the evening news during the event as well as provided for advertising for future events.
It was a blast. Wesley Productions gave ABC and Comic Con ten months to use the footage. Now, in preparation for the 2014 Comic Con, we’re releasing our footage and photos. Enjoy!
