The Singapore Comic Convention (SGCC) will take place this weekend and it looks like the organisers Reed Exhibitions are ready once again to bring a good mix of Popular Culture to fans here in Singapore and those visiting from around the region. Kenneth and Alex checks out the media preview and shares their five reasons why you should attend SGCC 2019.
Be dazzled by the Cosplayers
If it is a popular culture event, you can be sure that the cosplay community will be around to showcase their costumes to spice up the event atmosphere. From detailed armour pieces to beautifully sew costumes, bring your cameras down to capture all these but remember to treat the cosplayers with respect as well.
SGCC will also see cosplay guest such as Alodia Gosiengfiao and Jin behindinfinity grace the event as well as the Championships of Cosplay happening on the 2nd day.
Recharge with R&B Tea
Bubble Tea lovers will be pleased to know that R&B Tea will be at SGCC 2019 with three drinks specially created for the event. We had the chance to try out all 3 drinks at the media preview and we got a feeling we will be queuing up for more at the booth.
All we can say is FatDieMe please!
All these Wonderful Toys
While the new event name seem to have dropped the word “Toys”, Suhaimi Sainy, Senior Manager of Singapore Comic Con, Reed Exhibitions assured everyone at the media preview that there will still be Toys at this year’s SGCC. The toys at past events have always been a big draw and its good to know that toys will still play a part this year. From Tokidoki, Mighty Jaxx to Tamashii Nations, and the launch of an all-new LEGO Creator Expert set, do keep your wallets safe as it will be poisonous grounds you will be treading through.
Game On with PVP Esports
The Esports hype has been skyrocketing in recent years with its popularity exploding all over the world, even making an appearance at this year’s SEA Games. PVP Esports will be coming to SGCC as the official esports presenter of SGCC 2019 and promises a weekend of all things gaming and Esports. From the exhilarating finals of Singtel’s PVP Campus and Corporate Leagues featuring Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Dota 2 to global celebrity appearances such OG’s Topson, this is something event goers will not want to miss!
Rumble at the Squared Circle
For the first time at SGCC, event goers will get to see the live wrestling action at ring side with the Singapore Pro Wrestling. From the first ever comic con cup on day 1 to matches with the wrestlers in costumes on day 2, it is going to be an action packed experience over the 2 days!

The Singapore Comic Convention (SGCC) 2019 will take place this weekend, 7 – 8 December 2019, at the Marina Bay Sands Expo Halls A, B and C. Doors will open from 10am to 8pm daily.
