Will there be any guests at Armageddon?
Due to the covid-19 epidemic, there is currently no way to have physical international guests attend any of the 2020 (and probably 2021) due to quarantine rules and travel restrictions.
Faced with this issue, Armageddon has created an all new experience for all of our events in 2020 that is unique to NZ… A Virtual Guest experience with a live audience.

What does a ‘Virtual Guest’ mean?
For all of our 2020 events we will be hosting a wide variety of celebrity TV and Movie stars, Animation voices and more on the events stages, with the guest beaming in from overseas and on to massive screens on the events stages to interact with attendees and our stage host directly.

This will allow fans to have the full celebrity experience, ask questions directly and interact in real time with stars from all over the world.
This will also allow Armageddon to bring guests who we could not normally host, due to either filming or time restrictions, opening up a massive variety of talent far beyond what we could normally offer.
For example, currently we plan to be hosting stars from The Flash TV series at all of our 2020 events, something that we would not normally be able to do as they film during the events dates, but entirely possible with virtual appearances.

Due to the nature of the virtual guest, we will not be announcing the event schedule for each event until 2 weeks before each event as we will need to work in with international time zones and filming schedules, which will be a bit trickier than our usual schedule arrangements.

Each Virtual guest will only be appearing for ONE, one-hour panel at each event, making each day unique, but also making each panel a must have.
This will also allow us to bring groups of guests to the event for cast reunions and special events, for example, for the Auckland event we currently have a large group of guests from Star Trek Discovery and Babylon 5 planned for mini conventions within the event, this is something that we could not offer previously at this level.
ADDITIONAL (non-virtual) THINGS TO NOTE…
Unfortunately, this does also mean that we will not be able to offer Autograph and Photo opportunities as we have done in the past.

We will also potentially have a small number of guests present at shows if they are in NZ at the event dates (either international stars filming in NZ, or kiwi stars).

General FAQs

General event photos and videos are accepted. Please note: filming panels and filming or photographing the celebrity guest signing area and photo booth is prohibited. At no point should footage taken at Armageddon Expo be sold for profit. If you have a special filming request or are interested in recording footage for a documentary or other non-press content please contact [email protected] 

Who do I contact if I have a media enquiry?
To submit an application to attend the event with a Media Pass, please fill out the form you can find here: https://www.armageddonexpo.com/Media-Enquiries/
For considerations for celebrity guest interviews (prior to and during the event) please contact [email protected] to submit an interview request. Guest interviews will take place at the discretion of celebrity talent and their management.

What is your photography policy?
Please be advised that photographs will be taken at this event for use on the Armageddon expo website, for use in promotional and/or marketing materials. By entering the expo, you consent to Armageddon expo photographing and potentially using your image and likeness for promotional or marketing purposes. 
At Armageddon Expo, many of our attendees enjoy cosplaying at our events. As standard attendees, we expect the same appropriate behaviour from cosplayers to those who are not cosplaying. Alternatively, cosplayers are not there for the general public’s enjoyment. Unwanted photographs and attention are not permitted under any circumstances.
If a cosplayer/attendee refuses a request for a photograph, that is the cosplayer/attendee’s right, and everyone must respect that. If people tell you “no” or to leave them alone, your business with them is done. Leave them alone. Do not follow them or attempt to disrupt their convention experience in any way. If you continue to attempt to have contact with those people, you may be removed from the premises.

Can I record or livestream panels?
No, the filming and/or streaming of panels is not allowed under any circumstances. Photography may be permitted, as long as you do not use your flash.

Can I bring my drone?
No. Drones are prohibited both inside and outside the venue.

Who is the organiser of the show?
Beyond Reality Media Premiere Event Management Ltd. (BRM) Is the company that runs all of the Armageddon Expo events. BRM was created back in 1995 by Bill and Adele Geradts who are passionate about creating events for like-minded fans.

How do I get a photo or autograph with a celebrity guest?
Unfortunately, due to the covid-19 epidemic, there is currently no way to have physical international guests attend any of the 2020 (and probably 2021) events due to quarantine rules and travel restrictions, so while we are still planning on having a huge range of celebrity guests appear virtually for panels, photo and autograph options will not be available at the 2020, and probably 2021, events.

What cosplay props can I bring?
The Health and Safety of our attendees, staff and vendors is Armageddon’s number one priority, and we have a strict weapons and prop policy to ensure this, if you’re planning to attend any of our events with a prop, make sure it matches convention safety standards by checking out our Weapons and Prop policy here: https://www.armageddonexpo.com/Weapons-Policy/ 

Following the 2019 Christchurch Mosque Attack we made some adjustments to our cosplay and weapons prop policy. Those amendments will remain in place for the Auckland event this year.

To reiterate for anyone unsure, real life and imitation military uniform of any kind will not be permitted under any circumstances. One general camouflage patterned clothing item is permitted such as trousers or a top by itself however, a full camouflage outfit or imitation military uniforms is not. This extends to SWAT style uniforms. Pre-1900's military uniform is permitted.

Furthermore, all imitation firearms whether they are handmade, a toy or not will not be permitted. Items that have the appearance of a working firearm, even where they do not function as one, are classified as imitation firearms. As imitation firearms can cause public alarm, these will not be permitted at our event. Weapons from sci-fi and fantasy shows and brightly coloured toy weapons that clearly do not resemble working firearms will be permitted.

We’d also like to highlight the following policy points:
All prop weapons must be submitted to prop check when entering an Armageddon Expo event. Armageddon Expo staff and representatives have the sole discretion to approve prop weapons. Prop checks are located at the main entrance of any Armageddon Expo event. Once your prop is checked staff will put a bright cable tie around a part of your prop so other staff and attendees can see it has been checked.
Please when traveling to and from the event ensure that your prop weapons are safely transported so that you don’t raise concern from the general public and attract the attention of local law enforcement.

If you buy weapons at an Armageddon Expo event. All exhibitors must adhere to a strict R16 Weapons Customer Policy and will also provide an information leaflet summarising the Weapon Policy with all purchases. If you buy a prop or other weapon from an exhibitor at an Armageddon Expo event, you must keep it sealed in the secure packaging for the duration of the event. Those who disobey this rule will be removed from the event. Additionally prop weapons purchased at the event that do not meet the weapons policy may not be openly carried at the event.

Attending any Armageddon Expo event means that you agree to comply with all rules and policies regarding the safety of all attendees, including this weapons policy. You further understand and agree that, for your own safety and the safety of everyone at an Armageddon Expo event, Armageddon Expo staff and representatives hold the right to inspect your costumes, prop weapons and any other item you bring to the event. We may temporarily or permanently remove any attendee at any time for violating this weapons policy because every attendee’s safety is of the utmost importance.

For queries about our Cosplay Prop and Weapons Policy please feel free to contact us through our Facebook page or at [email protected]

The following items are prohibited from all Armageddon Expo events:

  • Drones
  • Homemade Stilts
  • Alcohol and other illegal substances
  • Helium Balloons
  • Lasers
  • Confetti or loose glitter
  • Lighters or other flammable sources
  • E-cigarettes and vaping devices

What is your harassment policy?
