Destination Truth's Josh Gates is First Entertainment Guest Lined Up for the 2012 C2E2
The celebrity guest list for the 2012 Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) is starting to take shape with the announcement that Josh Gates will appear at the annual pop culture convention, where he will be the focus of a high profile panel and will also do a signing.
C2E2 will take place April 13–15, 2012, in the North Building at the McCormick Place Convention Center.
From the Press Release:
Known as "the face of Syfy", Josh Gates is well-recognized as the host of the hit travel-adventure series "Destination Truth", a huge sensation which has garnered considerable attention and publicity. Gates’ reputation as a pre-eminent Monster Hunter was firmly established when, on the season premiere of Season Two of "Destination Truth", he and his team uncovered a series of footprints high in the Himalayas in search of evidence of the Yeti.
Gates also hosts Syfy’s "Ghost Hunters Halloween Live" and other special events for the channel throughout the year and has written Destination Truth: Memoirs of a Monster Hunter, which was published by Gallery Books in October, 2011.
Convention officials note that one of their main programming objectives is to provide a diverse range of panels by featuring guests from many walks of life with varied backgrounds, interests and accomplishments. “We look for guests who contribute to the growth and evolution of pop culture in its many forms,” notes Lance Fensterman, Group Vice President for ReedPOP and Show Manager for C2E2. “Josh Gates is a great example of someone from the entertainment world who also has a huge following in the pop culture arena. We are pleased and grateful that he has agreed to come to our show, and I know our fans will be very eager to meet him.”
C2E2 programming officials have also announced that comic legend Joe Kubert will be a “Spotlight” guest at this year’s convention. It will be Mr. Kubert’s first appearance at C2E2. More guest announcements will be made in the coming months.
