BCC will be promoted throughout the Lowcountry starting with Beaufort, Hilton Head Island, and Bluffton and extending outwards to Savannah and Charleston. That will likely be expanded across the eastern coast including states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida. Hundreds of thousands of people will be reached via radio ads and strong social media campaigns. We are also working directly with the Beaufort Chamber of Commerce, Main Street Beaufort, City of Beaufort and individual Beaufort stores to further reach into our community.
Flashback Gear, a small pop culture store in downtown Beaufort, hosts and plans the Beaufort Comic Con with the help of SK Associates and Printkeg. We also rely on many super dedicated individuals, sponsors and exhibitors to make this annual convention possible.
Downtown Shops and Restaurants
We work with many downtown stores and restaurants who wish to participate in the BCC. Many of them may be hosting exhibits, guests and special promotions specifically for Beaufort Comic Con ticket holders. Participating locations will be listed in the activities sections and maps where appropriate. If you are interested in working with us, please call or contact us for a meeting.
