A mainstay of the San Diego Comic-Con, Syfy has just announced its full plans for the upcoming event, beginning with previews of several new episodes from a number of their popular shows and ending the weekend with one of their signature parties. Full details from the official press release are as follows:
As in years past, a multitude of talent from Syfy’s hottest series will participate in interactive panels, where fans can get their burning questions answered and get all the behind-the-scenes secrets on their favorite shows! On Syfy’s docket for this year are hit “Warehouse 13”, “Eureka”, “Being Human” and “Sanctuary”, as well as new series “Alphas”, (premiering July 11 @ 10pm). Syfy will also hold a screening on Friday night (July 22), where fans can get an early sneak-peek of that evening’s new episode of “Haven” as well as the following Monday’s new episode of “Eureka”.
Outside of the convention hall, attendees will once again get a taste of all things Syfy at the fan-favorite Café Diem, across the street from the convention center at the Hard Rock Hotel (207 5th Ave). This fictional local hot spot heavily featured in the popular series “Eureka” will serve up Syfy fare both on and off the menu and will remain the perfect place for fans to relax and refuel during a long day at the Con.
In addition, Syfy Ventures, Syfy’s portfolio of businesses and joint ventures, and Her Universe(TM), a leader in female genre merchandise, will unveil the first pieces in the Syfy branded collection of apparel and accessories for the growing female science fiction fan base. Comic-Con will be the premier venue for the first launch items, including convention exclusives, starting July 20 and running through July 24. Additionally, the items will be available at both Syfy.com and Heruniverseshop.com.
As previously announced, On Saturday, July 24th, Syfy will partner with entertainment powerhouse E! for its most popular Comic-Con event: the star-studded party at the Hotel Solamar in the heart of the Gaslamp district. This invite-only, exclusive soiree has cemented its place as the hottest ticket at the convention and the most talked-about party of the weekend, and this year is no different as Syfy teams up with E! to continue the tradition. E! Live from the Red Carpet: The Syfy/E! Comic Con Party will stream the festivities in real time on both E! Online and Syfy.com, with E!’s Ben Lyons and Jael de Pardo (Syfy’s “Fact or Faked”) as co-hosts.
