Emerald City Comic Con and Reed Pop Join Forces

ReedPop

Reed Pop and Emerald City Comic Con are coming together to bring their take on Comic books and pop culture to the pacific Northwest, check out the press release below for more details:

REEDPOP AND EMERALD CITY COMICON JOIN FORCES TO PRODUCE THE ‘PREMIER COMIC BOOK AND POP CULTURE CONVENTION IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST’

Emerald City Comicon Joins the ReedPOP Family as Company Continues Rapid Growth as #1 Producer of Comic Conventions Across the Globe

NORWALK, CT – January 13, 2015ReedPOP, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events, is adding another show to its portfolio with the Emerald City Comicon (ECCC). Today, the company announces that the ‘premiere comic book and pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest’ has joined its family of leading experiential fan events. The partnership will take effect for next year’s eagerly anticipated event taking place March 27-29 in downtown Seattle.

ECCC, known for being a super fan-first and fan-oriented show, was founded in 2003 by local comics retailer Jim Demonakos and opened to 2,500 fans its first year. Since then, the show has grown exponentially reaching a record 70,000 in 2014 and an expected 80,000 in 2015, with 3-Day Tickets already sold out!  With new comic and celebrity guests each year, ECCC stands out for providing a unique experience for fans with a heart. Additionally, ECCC creates a charity art book each year since 2009 –Monsters & Dames – that has raised more than $75,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Demonakos had this to say about the partnership, “We are huge fans of what ReedPOP is doing across the globe in this pop culture space that ECCC also occupies and are excited to have them help us continue to deliver an amazing fan experience to our attendees. Moreso, we’re very much looking forward to bringing the ECCC brand of fan-focused attention to help amplify their events even further as well.”

Since ReedPOP’s first event in 2006, the sold-out New York Comic Con, the group has sought to produce exceptional experiences for passionate audiences and grow the industries surrounding these passions, and this philosophy has led to burgeoning attendance, the support of major creators and publishers and partnerships with leading entertainment brands including Lucasfilm (Star Wars Celebration), UFC (UFC Fan Expo) and Penny Arcade (PAX).

In recent years, ReedPOP has turned its attention internationally, recognizing pop culture audiences emerging throughout the world, where it has produced once-in-a-lifetime experiences for these new fans and connected exhibitors to these hungry, unexplored markets.  ReedPOP’s previous global events have been set in London, Germany and Singapore, and the company planted its biggest global flag to date last year in Australia, creating an Australian team to launch PAX Australia and partner with the Oz Comic-Con series of events. ReedPOP’s efforts in India were recently announced through a partnership with Comic Con India — with events in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The company also added Paris Comic Con into its fold as announced at last month’s New York Comic Con.

“The addition of ECCC to the ReedPOP family is a huge win and we couldn’t be more excited to see how we can make each other better,” said Lance Fensterman, ReedPOP’s Global Senior Vice President. “The ECCC team is tremendous and have put together an amazing show. I know there are things we can introduce to the mix and look even more forward to what the ECCC team can bring to all our events around the globe.”
