Motorpoint Arena Nottingham

EM-Con is warping back to Nottingham next year, for their biggest show yet.
Hot on the heels of this year's sell out event, EM-Con 2018 will see the Motorpoint Arena Nottingham filled with the very best in film, television and pop culture fandom as attendees, celebrity guests, traders and cosplayers flock to an annual celebration that has become a firm fixture in the Nottingham calendar.
For 2018, EM-Con is sparing no expense, with the announcement of three interstellar guests ready to meet fans in Nottingham. The original Green Power Ranger, Jason David Frank will be headlining the two day event, a treat for his many many fans, while fellow headliners LeVar Burton and Denise Crosby of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame will be joining him. They’ll be accompanied by many more guests, the names of whom will be revealed between now and next May!

NEW FOR 2018

As well as stars of Sci-fi past and present EM-Con 2018 will also welcome sporting stars from the recent past - these include for Nottingham Forest stars Nigel Jemson and Neil Webb.

There will be a host of traders selling a wide range of gifts, collectibles, comics and more, while the annual cosplay contest will reward the best cosplay costumes with a great selection of prizes.
