Pop culture event company ReedPOP has announced the acquisition of MCM Central, the firm behind the MCM Comic Con series of events, with immediate effect.

ReedPOP, a boutique group within Reed Exhibitions, part of RELX Group, says “its impact will begin to be seen and felt on all 2018 events”. MCM Comic Con’s shows attract nearly 300,000 pop culture fans and cosplayers throughout the year, in venues in London, Birmingham, Manchester, Glasgow, Liverpool and Belfast.

“For nearly a decade I’ve watched with great admiration as the MCM brand grew in size, scale and quality, as well as in the hearts and minds of UK fans. I could not be more proud and humbled to team up with the MCM team to bring two world-class pop culture event companies together,” said Lance Fensterman, global head of ReedPOP.

“The addition of the MCM brand extends the reach and influence of the ReedPOP portfolio and further solidifies our place as the number one producer of fan events across the globe. We cannot wait to work with the MCM team to build even bigger and better events for fans in the UK.”

ReedPOP adds the MCM events to an existing line-up that includes New York Comic Con, Star Wars Celebration, TwitchCon and Penny Arcade (PAX).
