Welcome

Wellington 2016 is here!

Friday 1 Apr 9:00 AM

As the featured event within the NZ Comic Con city-wide geek festival (check out the festival website www.comiccon.co.nz for other great events), Armageddon will once again be held at the Westpac Stadium, back on Queens Birthday long weekend (June 4-6th, 10am to 5pm all three days).

The 2016 event will have a few updates on the 2015 show, including…

  • Opening access to the inner stadium seating in two massive areas. This will allow easier access around the venue, with over a thousand extra seats outside to chill in and reduce congestion within the event in key areas.
  • Additional cosplay events and areas.
  • Two great evening events with most of the Expo guests, held Friday (7pm June 3rd) and Sunday (7pm June 5th) evenings
  • Three full event days over the long weekend.

Tickets for the expo are NOW on sale through TICKETEK, including VIP, evening and general admission tickets. iTicket will also be selling Evening event, Horror House and Quiz night tickets. 

Releasing April is the first of ongoing video releases showing behind the scenes of Armageddon and other events as well as exclusive guest interviews and a series of amazing 360 degree guest card gaming/interviews.

These can be viewed online through the Armageddon Expo YouTube Channel – HERE https://www.youtube.com/user/Armageddonexpo/
