It’s called Silicon Valley Comic Con 2016, and it’s the brainchild of Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak — himself a pretty big fan of geek culture — and the one and only Stan Lee. The debut event will take place March 19-20 at the San Jose Convention Center, and will try to merge the worlds of technology and pop culture under one roof.

To that end, the show will “feature Hollywood celebrities and technology leaders from movies, TV, and music, as well as consumer electronics, apps, gaming and emerging innovations.” That’s along with the usual comics, sci-fi and anime-related guests, cosplay and panels one would typically expect from a comic con.

“In life, the most important thing is to have fun, and Silicon Valley Comic Con will be the place to experience all your favorite things at one great show,” Wozniak said in a press release. “Today, technology is pop culture, in Silicon Valley and around the globe. Entertainment and innovation inspire and bring so much joy to the world, and I’m so excited that we will showcase both at Silicon Valley Comic Con. It’s finally the Age of the Geek, and we’re ready to celebrate!”
