"In 2016, FACTS will, more than ever, be your Belgian Comic Con, the home of all things sci-fi, comics, anime and cosplay. You can interpret the word ‘more’ quite literally. Not only are we expanding from one to two events this year, we will also transform even more halls of the Flanders Expo, Ghent into our own, nerdy universe. So don’t stay ‘trapped’ in boring reality and come join us in our own galaxy far, far away. We’re expecting you!"
