Show sponsors NEON return for 2018 bringing with them access to their epic range of television shows and movies. Just as NEON is your go-to for a vast array of great TV and films on demand, Armageddon is your go-to for all things pop culture. So it's a no-brainer the two have hooked up, with NEON the proud sponsor of the nationwide conventions. "Here at NEON, we celebrate the awesome, the outrageous, the weirdo, the hero, the weirdo-hero, and the un-dead," says GM Cuan Gray. "So, it makes perfect sense that NEON secures sponsorship of the Armageddon expos across the country, as they cherish the same things we do! If you haven't been before - make sure you get there!"

Armageddon Expo intends of being the place for fun this Easter Weekend. With free Easter Eggs for the first 500 kids through the door on Easter Sunday and a great line up of activities, stalls and a chance to meet the actors who bring their favourite characters to life '#WELLYGEDDON' is a great event for kids and adults alike.
