Information on Reactor 2007


November 2-4, 2007
Westin Chicago North Shore

We're a weekend-long celebration of popular arts from the east AND west, featuring the best in music, movies, animation, and comics. Reactor celebrates cool stuff from around the world. For years, Japanese and American popular cultures have lived in separate realms. Enter REACTOR, a convention created to promote understanding and education of these two cultures in order to provide both fan groups the opportunity to explore similarities and influences. Creative fan panels, informative seminars, and high-energy social activities make REACTOR attractive to those new to pop culture fandom as well as those already in-the-know.
