FanX 2016 Press Conference
Salt Lake Comic Con holds the state record for most attended convention.
As we’ve grown, we’ve attracted attention internationally, with over 10 million reach worldwide over social media, Salt Lake Comic Con is catching people’s attention! Fan-X 2016 is the 6th event from Dan Farr Productions. Now partnered with DC Comics and PopLife (FunCo), Fan-X will soon expand into the Philippines, Asia, and China!
We love our real life heroes! Everyone wants to get in the act! Upon hearing the news of our nation’s hero Buzz Aldrin attending Fan-X this year, the phones rang off the hook. Dan, Bryan, Governor Gary Herbert, and Senators Jake Garn and Orrin Hatch dined with Buzz upon his arrival. What a warm Utah welcome!
On a serious note. “A hero is measured by the evil they overcome.” The greatest foe we face in any community is teen suicide. Today, at SLCC Fan-X, Safe Utah Schools unveiled their free cell phone app. With SafeUT, anyone in crisis can quickly reach a Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
