GEEK Fest’s first event in Beirut this weekend

It is something that every geek in town has been long waiting for. A brand new GEEK Fest (completely independent from the previous conference by the same name a decade ago) opens its doors for the first time in Hazmieh, for an eventful weekend on March 22-24.

What is GEEK Fest? In the words of Mounir Camel-Toueig, managing partner at Tell(tale) (PR and digital agency behind the convention),“it’s not an event, it is a platform where all-things-geek can live.”

Like-minded people are given a chance to meet under the same roof and share their interest in comics, movies, gaming, and all geeky matters.  The program also includes cultural rendezvous, such as the “Millennial geeks vs. the original geeks” panel discussion; others relate more to business, discussing geeks as entrepreneurs for example. There will be free movie screenings, food and gaming spaces, daily competitions and prizes, board games, quizzes…  That is quite a lot to experience for the price of one admission ticket.

Indeed, the whole of the pop-culture comes to life in the heart of Lebanon. With partners like Multiverse, a pop-culture store, and Comic Stash, a popup store for vintage comics, you can be certain that this is not your typical convention.

Geek up, the time is near. And if you catch a glimpse of us, don’t be shy; come say hello!
