for the love of sci-fi  2019

For the Love of Sci-Fi Experience, changing the face of comic con conventions.For the fans, by the fans.


Wow!!! What an event!!! The organisers put on an event like no other. The guests were out of this world and very friendly. The organisation was perfect and based on everything they had on offer for the fans this weekend the fact that it ran smoothly was a massive statement to the convention scene. Plenty of traders and a good variety of things to buy at decent prices. Who else could kick off a convention with a massive concert???

The afterparty in the Cantina was a highlight. Awesome music, great atmosphere and everyone had fun. My mind has been slow this weekend!!! A massive thank you to the organisers for all the hard work they have put in this event, you guys were amazing!! A big shout out to the cosplay community that came out and wowed us!

Can't wait to do it again guys.

Just want to congratulate you guys on another fantastic event this weekend, absolutely unbelievable! I attended on the Sunday last year and met Dolph Lundgren and attended today meeting Carl weathers and Brigitte Nielsen, would like to thank you guys for making all this possible and making dreams come true for fans meeting their idols which I have now been lucky enough to do so, very surreal experience! All of the props and stalls and staff were amazing to, loved the E.T Forrest set up. As you may gather from the guests I paid to see I am a huge rocky fan and I know you will probably receive this request numerous times for the next few months but you have to do everything in your power to try and lure Mr.T over here to attend one of your events it would be class! Thanks again on an amazing event, good luck in future events and see you again soon. - Luke

I been to a few different cons gotta say for all round enjoyment, guests, amazing picture opportunities not just with guests but with cosplayers and scenery built was amazing made it come to life more and the fans themselves it was top draw really happy. Thank you took some great memories and meeting guests i always wanted to but never thought possible to meet. I will definative keep an eye out for your next event.

It was fabulous!! We went last year and the year before and we have enjoyed each one for different reasons
You held your hands up last year and learnt a lot and it showed

A great job well done - Becki Marie

Really fun, always great people and guests there, defo 5 stars x - Megan Walker

This was my first convention with my family and I was totally amazed by it all. My lad met his all time stars Caleb and Gaten. My little girl had a photo with every character which were all brilliant with her. I caught a glimpse of my childhood hero big Lou Ferrigno. Can’t wait for next year. Too many pics taken but my girl has picked this one. Thanks again everyone. Great work by all. Well planned. Staff very friendly but professional. Good food on offer. Big name stars. Highly recommended. - Charlie Bradley

Awesome, would thoroughly recommend. 5 🌟 - Jonathon Mcluskie

I attended Saturday, the Stranger Things special was awesome, it was a pre Christmas treat for my daughter & friend. I can say you didn’t disappoint!! We all had a great day, no stress, fuss free queuing with tickets been check prior to entry so everything flowed. Helpful staff. We’ll definitely be coming again. Thank you for putting it all together - my personal highlight ET & Johnny 5!  - Amy Laura

First time at the show, had a total blast! Organization is top notch, apparently there were problems last year but everything went smooth this Sunday! Finally an organizer that’s actually listening to negative feedback and improve things, that itself tells it all!
And the guests were just flabbergasting! Excellent choice in bringing fresh and rare names.
Staff was respectful and always willing to help, no one was sending you away to “that guy who knows”...
I will definitely try to go back to events run by Monopoly events, keep doing the hard work guys!!! - Stephanie Godefroid.

Such a fab event and a credit to Manchester to attract the best guest from around the world! - Keith Townley

Brilliant event today. Very much enjoyed it. Queuing system was spot on. After attending last year, I can't believe the difference. Well done Andy and everyone else involved. Have to say Jesse Ventura's Q&A was a highlight for me. What a dude - Nell Robinson

This was my first time attending an advent ran by monopoly events! From all the conventions ive been too, this is by far the well managed and organised! was no problems getting in, loved how someone come down the que half hour before door open time, to can tickets and give stamps so you can just go straight in when doors open
Only mainly went to see Carl Weathers as a big Rocky fan, but i thoroughly enjoyed the whole event!
Will definitely be attending Liverpool comic con & other conventions held by monopoly events 👌🏻- Savvy Lloyd

Amazing day today. A list guests, amazing props too. the whole event was so slickly run and I wouldn't thoroughly recommend this event to any sci fi fan. Well done to all the organisers - Ryan Brassington

I attended my very first show promoted by Monopoly Events today which is known as For the Love of Sci-Fi. After attending various cons over the last 5 years I have to say this is the best experience I have had at any of them. Staff are always on hand to point you to the right direction and things are done with minimal fuss. The lineup for this event was excellent and contained a lot of first time UK signees. The sets and the props on display throughout the halls were hypnotising. Organisation was just 5* throughout and the venue was easy to navigate around once inside. For a promoter who has only been in the business since 2015 I think other events need to adopt the methods these guys use! Will be the first of many Monopoly shows I attend. Not a single bit stressful and zero aggravation. Very fan friendly and a 5* experience!- Layth Robson-Ismall

Great event with lots to see, some great names there and great booths with stuff to buy and collect too. - Louis Finney

The whole event was absolutely brilliant and being able to meet some of my childhood heroes was an amazing experience. The venue was great and pretty easy to find. I enjoyed listening to the music that the live orchestra played as it was from films i enjoy. I would definitely recommend anyone to attend this next year. 10 out of 10.  - Lindsey Brunt

What can I say? An amazing day. Met icons I have grown up watching on my TV. Looking forward to the next one. Il be getting our tickets ASAP! - Brian Byron

Me and my family had a great time yesterday. A well put together event. The organisers should Be proud and hopefully this will grow and grow and get bigger and better. My 7yr old lad who is a fully trained and very excited Jedi said it was the best day ever. Even my 2 yr old lad, who was a bit wary of the 'scary monsters' enjoyed himself. So that's good enough for me.  Thanks. - Pete Massey

I really like your event, also attended last year as well. Good to see people going home with their professional photo's this year, much better idea that. I find your event very laid back which is nice. Got some great pics got to see plenty of people from films to TV. Brilliant seeing the effort people put into their costumes, really makes the event as they and all the builds you put together bring it to life! Well worth the trek over from Liverpool. Already wondering what you are dreaming up for next year! - Michael Murphy 

Me my wife and our niece and nephew came today and had a brilliant time , met Ernie Hudson and Dolph Lundgren which is a life time dream so I'm extremely grateful for that. Thank you for an awesome day!! - Scott Beesley
