SiouxperConLine Press Release
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: September 16, 2020
SiouxperCon Moves Online in 2020
Sioux Falls’ favorite nerd convention to hold an online, COVD 19-safe experience for local fans.
[Sioux Falls, SD]: The 501c3 charity convention SiouxperCon, now in its fifth year, is holding their first ever fully online convention, SiouxperConline. The online convention will take place from 10 am to 6 pm on Saturday, October 3rd and Sunday, October 4th.
“SiouxperCon has always been a family-friendly, community-focused event and we felt that holding an in-person convention would put too many of our fans at risk due to COVID-19.” Says Tyson Wharton, Chair of SiouxperCon’s Board of Directors. “While we were disappointed to not meet in person, moving to an online con seemed a logical step to keep everyone safe while providing our fans with a fun experience.”
The online convention will take place on the website https://siouxperconline.com.
- Registration is free, although donations are encouraged. All donations support SiouxperCon’s partner charities, REACH Literacy and JY6 Foundation.
- The event will feature over 30 interviews with guests from the comic book, science fiction, fantasy and horror fields.
- A cosplay contest will feature an online “parade” and a panel with the Best in Show winner.
- Online video gaming tournaments and board gaming meetups will run throughout the weekend.
