The wait Finally is over…2017’s Most Anticipated “Sneaker” Convention is back and bigger than ever! The Bruckner Building located at 2417 Third Avenue in the Bronx New York will host Bronx borough’s very first Solecon Sneaker Event. With over 44,000 square feet this beautifully restored event space will include 1 VIP floor for celebrity guest networking, seminars & workshops. In addition, there will be a main expo floor that will include the event’s main stage and over 300+ vendor tables of sneakers, clothing & more.
Solecon is known for its themed conventions that are uniquely relatable to pop culture & current events. As expected we have got an event for the record books!
Let’s take a trip back in time to the essence of the place where our Hip Hop culture began. The BOOGIE DOWN BRONX in the 80s is known as a classic era where our most of our fashion trends erupted & its music icons were birthed.
Solecon Events are not only known for being one of the most lucrative sneaker events of its time, but we also take pride in curating sneaker business techniques and education of the marketplace for youngsters. 90% of our customers happens to young practicing entrepreneurs. At Solecon, we explain how good business works & often offer lessons in marketing and promotion, merchandising and sales. At Solecon: The Get Down, the Solecon team will be offering two amazing workshops administered by sneaker world professionals. “Customizer 2.0” hosted by the very talented @this_is_my_sanity and “Reseller 101” hosted by the steer fashion icon @Itsrack will take place in a private floor space outside of the general expo floor.
For this much anticipated Solecon show, we’ve titled the event “The Get Down” as an example of how to end potential confrontations in our community in non-violent manner. We have brought some of the biggest names from our most popular sub-cultures to meet head to head in “Debate Battles” using strategic, educational, democratic and artistic fashions of expression.
This will be a whole day full of fun culture! Our events will range from live B-Boy Break dance battles to a live DJ Turn table battle hosted by the legendary Eddie B Swift (Cypress Hill). Throughout the Solecon event we will host a prized 3 Point basketball contest, Mario Go Kart game battle and an open mic session for up and coming musical artist.
The show experience gets real for enthusiast and social media followers when mid-way through the day, when celebrity sneaker customizers @Fbccbayarea & @2muchsol3 take the stage to live & livestream the great debate to put the whole Sample/Fake Sneaker talk to bed.
Specially designated show segments and floor sections will be dedicated to BapeCon & SupremeCon respectively. Some of the world’s most renown collectors and influencers will showcase and possible resell these two iconic brands in the building.
Lastly, Solecon: The Get Down’s one day event will also have a town hall style open discussions. These discussions will take place with famed panel members and the general public. Everyone will have an opportunity to weigh in their personal opinions about trending topics in our pop and hip hop culture. Topics like Adidas Vs Nike, Yeezy Vs Jordan, and the famous Bape vs Supreme battle discussions. Be there or tune into the livestream channel (to be announced) to witness history as The Solecon 5 Borough Tour Comes to an End.
