ICON in Johannesburg is the largest annual consumer hobby gaming and comic event in Southern Africa. Each year thousands of enthusiasts converge from all over the country for a long weekend of interactive gameplay, comics & collectibles, hobby-related events, cosplay, anime screenings and a variety of other events at this virtual Mecca for gamers and hobby enthusiasts.
With more than 2,000 visitors each year in Johannesburg and more product introductions than any other game and comic event in Southern Africa, ICON is THE place where consumers, game distributors, comic retailers and media entertainment distributors get together to experience the latest and greatest in the industry.
We are proud to be bringing the same experience to Durban, for the THIRD year in a row. We have seen such incredible growth since the inaugural Durban event in 2015 that we are moving to a venue more than three times the size of our previous venue in order to accommodate our growing number of attendees, exhibitors and events.
ICON by the Sea will take place from 7 to 9 April, 2017 at Old Mutual Sports Hall in Glenwood. If you would like to exhibit at ICON we have various stall configurations available in the exhibition halls and all the necessary forms to apply can be found on the download page.
ICON by the Sea open times are as follows:
- Friday - 12PM to 9PM
- Saturday - 9AM to 6PM
- Sunday - 9AM to 5PM
Tickets for ICON by the Sea are available at the door. A day pass is R60, while a pass for the full weekend is R100.
We look forward to seeing you there!
