Ground Zero Animation EXPO is an annual event held in Orange County, CA. Our Expo will be held at The Boys and Girls Club of Stanton in 2019. The show caters to those interested in breaking into the Animation industry or anyone who appreciates animated films, shows & shorts. We host 45-50 Professional & Up and Coming vendors and 4 major sponsors. GZAE focuses on all parts of the industry from illustration, publishing, stop motion, fabrication, claymation/puppetry to character design, 3D modeling, prop/background design and much more.

Industry professionals are there to share all day at their tables, through panels, demos, lectures, workshop and during unique one on one interactions. Ground Zero is a grassroots show that has a big impact.

We have also started offering monthly Workshops & Classes in order to keep the education flowing year round!

PANEL TICKETS ARE NOT GUARANTEED INTO EVERY PANEL. Space is limited for panels and it is on a first line up basis. First 100 Panel tickets sold will receive a GZAEXPO limited Swag Tote Bag.

WORKSHOP tickets are sold separately and will be announced when they are on sale & what will be availble.

REFUNDS: Discount tickets are non-refundable after Jan. 1, 2019. Regular tickets are non-refundable after Feb. 1, 2019. Processing fee will not be refunded, only face value of ticket(s) purchased.

FREE PARKING: Structure available across from Boys and Girls Club. Arrive early for structure parking. Street parking available around the block, please watch signs.

FOOD: We will have vending machines, a snack bar, and possible food truck. We cannot cater to allergies or specific diets, please bring your own food if you do have any specific requirements.

Cash is KING: When shopping from our vendors, please remember cash is helpful to avoid processing fees, and to make for easy and quick transactions. Wi-Fi can be very slow and creates issues at times.

Who is our show for? ANYONE who love art, animation, gaming, illustration and more! We do focus on educating those wanting to learn more about working in the industry or becoming a freelance artist, however the vendor room is filled with incredible talent!
