Ecto-Con 2020 is a one day fan event to celebrate EVERYTHING Ghostbusters! We'll be holding the event at the Trades Hall in Glasgow!

About this Event

Hello and Welcome! Ecto-Con 2020 is a one day fan event to celebrate EVERYTHING Ghostbusters! We'll be holding the event in Glasgow on June 20th 2020 and all you Ghostheads are invited!

We are speaking to those involved with the franchise to see how much it will cost to bring them to Scotland.

On the day there will be talks, photographs, props, cosplay competitions, merchandise to drool over, shows to watch, raising money for charity and many Ghostbusters fans as possible to meet!

With news of a brand new Ghostbusters film set to be released on July 10th 2020, we can't think of a better reason to get together and celebrate with our fellow Ghostheads!

  • A full one day event with traders and artists for you to explore
  • The chance to meet IDW's Dan Shoening and Erik Burnham
  • We'll also be joined by Jason Marsden - voice of Garrett in the Extreme Ghostbusters (and more!)
  • Meet Eldo Ray Estes from the original Ghostbusters film
  • Replica props and features from Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters 2 including a giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man for you to get your photo with
  • Retro Video Games to Play
  • The Nerfery - a fun Nerf target tent game for all ages!
  • Des O'Gorman's One Man Ghostbusters comedy show, "Still Ready To Believe You"
  • Green Screen Photography that will put you in the heart of the films
  • A chance to meet Ghostheads from around the world and hopefully a chance to break a Guinness Book Record!
  • An exclusive screening of "Cleanin' Up The Town" the hotly anticipated documentary followed by a Q and A from the creators
  • "The Containment Unit" our exclusive after party in the Trades Hall with live music, DJs, bars and the ultimate Ghostbusters Fan Quiz!
  • Raising money for a local Scottish charity

We have special tickets available for Ghost Corp Franchises with discounts for teams with up to 3, 4-6 and up to 7 members.

Unfortunately at this stage we cannot afford to bring over the big guns from the films. We've approached their relevant agents and sadly we just can't afford them.

Below are some of the names we are talking to and how much it'll cost to bring them to the event. These are all subject to cancellation due to work commitments.

We are delighted to announce that Dan Schoening and Erik Burnham, the team who work on the IDW Ghostbusters comic book range, and Back to The Future comics, are coming to Scotland for a panel and signings!

Dan Schoening has been a professional animator since 2000 and a professional comic book artist since 2011. He currently works for IDW on Ghostbusters, with previous work for Back to the Future, TMNT, and for Archie Comics on Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. He is based in Victoria, BC.

Voice over legend Jason Marsden - star of The Extreme Ghostbusters, Spirited Away, A Goofy Movie, Gummi Bears, Transformers, Skyrim: Elder Scrolls, Star Wars, Star Trek and a whole host of Marvel and DC animated shows (too many to list, check out his IMDb page at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005189/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1) and much, much more - is making his Scottish convention debut next Summer at ECTO-CON 2020! At the heart of Glasgow’s city centre fans of Ghostbusters and beyond can meet Jason, hear his stories from his career so far, get their autographs and photographs on the day.

Jason appears courtesy of 7 Star Event Booking​ so please be sure to check them out.

Erik Burnham is a Minnesotan writer and artist that first broke into comics by way of the Nick Landime feature from Shooting Star Comics. This led to other anthologies and then work for IDW Publishing, up to and including his critically acclaimed work on the GHOSTBUSTERS line of comic books. Erik has been fortunate to work with Cryptozoic Dynamite, IDW, Insight Editions, Marvel and Panini on Ghostbusters, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Back to the Future, Galaxy Quest, Scarlet Spider, New Warriors and KISS.

The more tickets we sell, the more guests we can bring to Ecto-Con 2020!

Four time Emmy Award winning makeup artist Eldo Ray Estes is our latest guest for Ecto-Con 2020! Eldo is very much part of the Ghostbusters family, playing one of their more vocal supporters, sporting stunning red hair, cheering them on as they arrive at Dana’s apartment to take on the villainous Gozer in the final battle. With his iconic line, “Ghostbusters, all right!”. His recent work can be seen in films such as “A Simple Favour” with Anna Kendrick, “First Reformed” with Ethan Hawke and the Darren Star television series, “Younger” with Sutton Foster. We are delighted to have Eldo come to Scotland to meet the fans, talk about his time on Ghostbusters and his career in film and television!

We're going to be offering 1000 tickets ahead of the event - in hope that we can pre-sell enough to cover the cost of our venue and then as many guests as we can feasibly afford.

So for £15 you will get a GENERAL ENTRY TICKET for the event on the 20th of June 2020 - 9am until 5pm. Access to all the talks, traders, video games, board games, green screen photos and the opportunity to meet the stars that we bring over and get your autographs from them.
