In one FACTS weekend, the connoisseurs of the finer sci-fi and fantasy worlds receive the experience of a lifetime. If you adore comics, anime, cosplay, science fiction, video games, board games, fantastic films and tv series or other alternative activities, then FACTS is an event you simply cannot miss. We have all your favourite franchises under one roof. FACTS is an acronym, after all, for Fantasy, Animation, Comics, Toys and Sci-Fi.
A dash of history
FACTS started in 1993, as a small gathering of like-minded fans, united by their passion, in a pub called ‘Het Tonneke’ in Ghent. Two tables, forty visitors. And although the event kept growing year after year, like bamboo in a samurai sword-free environment, FACTS and that genuine feeling of comradery and passion will forever be tied together.
With FACTS on April 6-7 2019, we will give you that experience once again. We’re filling up the Flanders Expo halls with everything a pop culture fan could ever wish for. The largest hall will be an enormous market with all sorts of merchandise, neatly made available to you by hundreds of international exhibitors and collectors who seek a new home for their beloved items. Putting them at the heart of the event is no coincidence: the first FACTS conventions were just that: a market for merchandise. Now, we give the FACTS fans a complete experience, with huge side halls dedicated to comic artists, video games, cosplay and more activities than you can count.
