Galaxy Con

Media Relations Support

The Project

GalaxyCon, a weekend event of all things fandom: comics, fantasy, gaming, wrestlers and cosplay made its debut to Columbus in 2022.

The client’s main goal was to garner attention to the quality of the event and its featured headliners through traditional media and working with bloggers and social media influencers for advance event coverage.

On-site media coverage and communicating the success of GalaxyCon and its economic impact to the city of Columbus were also part of Inspire’s services to the client.
