Back in March I was luck enough to attend the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic Con (SVCC) which saw close to 60,000 guests make their way to San Jose over the course of three days. This places Steve Wozniak’s and Stan Lee’s Comic Con creation as the biggest convention in Northern California.
The event celebrated science, technology, and pop culture with marquee events such as: the first North American reunion of the cast of Back to the Future, “Let’s go to Mars” with The Martian author Andy Weir, a fireside chat with Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR, fan Q&A’s with celebrities, and in-depth discussions with creative teams behind blockbuster movies and hit TV shows.
We couldn’t be happier with the turnout at our first Silicon Valley Comic Con-from passionate fans to engaging exhibits and talks, said founder Steve Wozniak. Version 2.0 in 2017 will be even better.
Here are a few highlights from that weekend.
Live long and prosper SVCC!
