Energize Lounge returns to San Diego Comic-Con

We could not be more excited for San Diego Comic-Con 2024! Hero Within will be at our normal location at booth #1943 and will have new Star Trek Exclusives just for you. However, besides new merch, we are proud to announce the sequel of our offsite activation in the Gaslamp called ENERGIZE LOUNGE II: The Wrath of Con! This intimate themed experience will give you a chance to refuel on coffee, explore official Star Trek licensed brands and connect with fellow Trek fans. Featuring themed coffee & caffeinated drinks, fans will be 'energized' for a busy week at Comic-Con. Located right across the street from the convention center, the Energize Lounge will be just 1 block away (see map below):

A new addition this year's Energize Lounge are Giveaway Partners. These great companies are providing fun items that will either be given as giveaways to coffee customers or hourly contests throughout the day.

Why the Energize Lounge?
During Comic-Con, we have so many lovely conversations at our booth with Star Trek fans. However, it's unfortunate that it's so brief and during the chaos of the booth. So we wanted to create a separate space where fans can relax, connect and nerd out over a cup of coffee. Whether you are a Comic-Con attendee, Hero Within customer or Star Trek fan, we hope you make time to get energized at the Energize Lounge! 

Event Schedule (Non-ticketed but limited to first come/capacity basis):
  • Preview Night: Sneak peek from 9p-10:30
  • Thu-Sat: TRICORDER Demos by The Wand Company: 10a, 2p & 7p
