About Nerd HQ


Fans and celebrities came together once again at The Nerd Machine’s third annual Nerd HQ at Comic-Con International 2013. Located at San Diego’s Petco Park at 100 Park Blvd in San Diego, Nerd HQ welcomed over 30,000 people from July 18-21.

Nerd HQ provided fans and celebrities with an intimate and engaging experience that was unlike any other event during Comic-Con. The event showcased cutting edge technology, exclusive parties, autograph signings, photo opportunities with celebrities, a screening of “Firefly” on the field at Petco Park, which drew 2,500 fans, and the very popular “Conversations for a Cause” panel series, which raised $215,000 for Operation Smile.

Panels consisted of the most talked about films and television shows including “Sherlock,” “Hannibal,” “Orphan Black,” “Doctor Who,” “Haven,” “300: Rise of An Empire,” “Kick-Ass 2,” “The Maze Runner,” “Riddick,” and “I, Frankenstein,” to name just a few. Each panel was packed with curious and excited fans asking meaningful questions anxious to learn more about their favorite films and shows.

Nerd HQ highlights included Tom Hiddleston’s impression of a velociraptor, “Doctor Who” actor Matt Smith and Jenna Coleman jumping on stage to surprise “Game of Thrones” star Richard Madden during his panel, and Stan Lee dropping by to take photos with fans at the photo booth.

The excitement continued with Nerd HQ’s energetic and fun-filled after-parties for fans and celebrities alike. A Thursday night party gave fans the opportunity to mingle, play games, and dance the night away.

The festivities continued on Friday, when Nerd HQ hosted the hottest party at Comic-Con: The NERD Party.






The Third Annual NERD party will be bigger and better than ever at the HQ.
