The Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (STGCC) combines the best of pop culture from East and West, uniting the worlds of comics, anime, manga, toys, collectibles, games and movies. STGCC showcase the heartbeat of what's new and cool in the gateway to Southeast Asia, put together in collaboration with ReedPOP – the makers of the New York Comic Con (NYCC), Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), Star Wars Celebration and the New York Anime Festival!

STGCC attracted 30,000 unique visitors over 2 days! There was a convergence of a multitude of pop culture's best with 98 exhibitors from 12 countries and was attended by 176 international media from 8 countries.

Anyone who is into toys, games, comics and all things pop culture cool including artists, collectors & enthusiasts, designers, distributors, manufacturers & retailers, educators, and the media are recommended to attend STGCC 2012.

STGCC is proudly brought to you by Reed Exhibitions – the world's largest event organiser and in collaboration with the creators of New York Comic Con (NYCC). STGCC is another killer event by ReedPOP – the Pop Culture Group at Reed Exhibitions. ReedPOP also runs the New York Comic Con (NYCC), Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2), New York Anime Festival, Star Wars Celebrations, UFC Fan Expos and PAX.

The Play Imaginative booth is the first exhibitor which visitors will encounter when they step into the convention hall as it is positioned right in front of the main entrance (I believe there is a side entrance and secret backdoor somewhere ^^;).

Their booth is uniquely designed which will help them to stand out from the rest of the exhibitors.

The Artist Alley where artists, designers, and maybe artisans set up their booths to display and sell their works.

The other retail exhibitors in the convention hall offering their goods and services. There is a fine balance of eastern and western goodies available for sale but I did not get any as they are outside of my interest and budget.
