The excitement is growing as Silicon Valley Comic Con (#SVCC) is set to begin it’s third terrific year at the McEnry Convention Center and surrounding venues in downtown San Jose at the heart of Silicon Valley!
Having grown to the status of a San Francisco Bay Area and Silicon Valley mega convention since the introductory year in 2016, the sheer volume of talented creators, actors, scientists, comic book writers, and special art exhibits in 2018 will be taking over the entire quadrant near the McEnry Convention Center, including fan favorite activities in surrounding buildings!
As an Affiliate of Silicon Valley Comic Con, we here at TeamWHR are beyond ecstatic at the extent of this pop culture, tech and science exposition that is almost beyond human imagination. Featuring the tag line “What does it mean to be human?”, we are as honored to attend Silicon Valley Comic Con 2018 as we were to have a chance meeting with Steve Wozniak and his lovely spouse Janet at last years event!
Known for producing outstanding microchip technology at Hewlett Packard prior to co-founding Apple Computer, Steve Wozniak is also well known to the world of entertainment as a result of his famous pop culture music event, the US Festival, where over 600,000 music mavens gathered in Glen Helen Regional Park in 1983 to enjoy their favorite artists!
Advocating a drug free lifestyle for youth, while avoiding conformity to the masses, “Woz” has helped shape countless young people to pursue their dreams through his generous donations of time, dedication to teaching, and donations of computing equipment to educational institutes as documented at Woz Dot Org!
Now with Silicon Valley Comic Con, A Pop Culture, Technology and Science Exposition entering it’s third epic year, Mr Wozniak, who co-founded SVCC in 2016 with Trip Hunter (SVCC Chairman) and Stan Lee (who is returning to the convention stage this year), is all set to entertain many tens of thousands this weekend April 06 through 08, 2018 in San Jose.
As Mr Wozniak stated “We’re trying to do a recipe that’s different than the San Diego Con… they do what they do very well”
Woz said, “I don’t want to be the biggest, I want this to be the best we can do. ” and with guests like the legendary Nichelle Nichols, that is exactly what is going to happen!
