The first-ever Rose City Comic-Con: Portland Oregon’s Biggest Pop-Culture Convention, is right around the corner with dates scheduled for September 7th-9th, 2012. This inaugural Con will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton®, located at the center of the beautiful Portland Metro center within walking distance of the Oregon Convention Center, Rose Garden Arena and Portland Memorial Coliseum.
As Portland’s first large-scale Comic Con, Ron Brister, the Co-Creator of the two-day event said, “We wanted to create an over-the-top experience for the fans. We wanted to create something completely different and fun that brought a unique element to the Rose City Comic-Con and got people talking." Ron and his team chose to bring in Rockit Media, a provider of live event mobile entertainment. According to Rockit Media CEO, Roger Toennis, “Rockit is leading the way in the creation of engaging mobile games and guides for live events like concerts, festivals and conventions. Comic Cons are one of our favorite events, and to be able to produce the Official Mobile Application for the first-ever Rose City Comic-Con is a real privilege.”
The Official Mobile App of the Rose City Comic-Con can be found in the Apple® AppStore™ and the Google Android Play Store, or by registering online. The app comes complete with a full-blown program guide and the newly-announced, Alliance of Heroes™, a mobile EventQuest™ scavenger hunt where fans can uncover codes hidden in and around the event, while competing for instant win prizes during the event. EventQuest™ winners will walk away with prizes that include an Apple® iPad™, Tornado Bandz™ commemorative necklaces and bracelets, as well as t-shirts and other cool shwag provided by Rose City Comic-Con exhibitors.
