Just as NEON is the go-to for a vast array of great TV and movies on demand, Armageddon is the go-to for all things pop culture; and the two companies are excited to announce the extension of their relationship which sees NEON continue as the naming sponsor for the nationwide conventions over the next two years.
“Here at NEON, we celebrate the awesome, the outrageous, the weird, the hero, the weird-hero, and the un-dead,” says GM, Cuan Gray. “So, it makes perfect sense that NEON remains the naming sponsor of the Armageddon expos across the country, as they cherish the same things we do!”
“We know the next best thing to having great telly at your fingertips is being immersed in all aspects of entertainment with like-minded people, celebrating all things pop culture, and we’ve been thrilled to help grow and support these unique NZ events for the past couple of years,” he adds.
“We love working with the team at NEON,” says, Armageddon Director, William Geradts. “They share our unbridled passion for pop culture, for amazing television shows and engaging movies and their support has ensured we have been able to continue to attract some big name stars to our annual events. We’re excited to continue this fantastic partnership and to see what – and who – the future brings!”
Armageddon expos were held in Wellington, Tauranga and Christchurch earlier this year and saw a great numbers of stars, fans and characters walk through the door. The Auckland Armageddon expo takes place over the upcoming Labour Weekend and is set to soar to new heights.
From Friday 19 – Monday 22 October guests can make the most of photo opportunities and Q&A sessions with top talent from hit NEON series like Legion (Navid Negahban), Supernatural (Mark Sheppard, Osric Chau) and Marvel’s Runaways (Gregg Sulkin).
The names keep coming as Armageddon has confirmed Christina Ricci (Sleepy Hollow), Shannen Doherty (Charmed) and Katie Leung (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) will join many, many more stars at the ASB Showgrounds over the four-day period.
It’s not just famous faces punters can look forward to seeing; NEON will make sure there’s plenty of chances to win great TV and movie related merch, check out what’s on and what’s coming up.
