2019 Metropolis Super Con


My name is Kevin Stewart and I am the promoter at the annual Metropolis Super Con, this year taking place June 7-9 during the 41st annual Superman Celebration in Metropolis, IL. I believe this press release will be of interest to your readers, viewers or listeners. For one, the event is free to attend, and second the event is located in the heart of the Superman Celebration's main four-block area. I've attached our 2019 logo, a photo from last year's Con, and a jpeg of the press release, as well as reprinting the press release below. I may also postal mail you this release. We have both facebook pages and a website. Please contact me with any questions.

Super Con Press Release, May 22, 2019:

The 2019 Metropolis Super Con welcomes seven new vendors and 21 total for the June

7-9 event in Superman's adopted Illinois hometown. The 12th annual pop-culture and

superhero convention, at 715 Market Street, features free admission and coincides with

the 41st annual Superman Celebration.

"This year we have a really nice combination of vendors who should appeal to a wide

range of people," Super Con promoter Kevin Stewart says. "There will be items for sale

that will interest anywhere from hardcore fans to the novice collector to the average Joe.

New vendors include a sketch artist and a balloon twisting artist and a homemade

superhero crafter, and of course, there will be tons of comic books, vintage toys and

collectibles. There is something for everyone."

The Super Con opens Friday June 7 at 10 am with doors closing at 6. Saturday's hours

are 9 am to 7 pm and Sunday's hours are 10 am to 2 pm. The event is next door to Thor's

Gym, across the street from the Lois Lane statue and three blocks north of the giant

Superman statue. The Super Con is in the same location now for the sixth straight year.

Vendors have committed to fill 50 tables.

According to the Metropolis Chamber of Commerce, the Superman Celebration is

expected to draw 20,000-30,000 people. This year's guest celebrities include Erica

Durance, who played Lois Lane for seven years on TV's "Smallville," and most recently

starred as Dr. Alex Reid on the TV series "Saving Hope," and Helen Slater, who played

the lead role in the 1984 movie "Supergirl" and plays Supergirl's adoptive mother on the

current TV series "Supergirl."
