MCM London Comic Con may already be Europe’s biggest comic con, but the show will be even bigger when it returns to ExCel London this October, organisers have revealed. Last month’s MCM London Comic Con reported higher attendance records than ever before, setting a new attendance record of over 76,000, and the team behind the show are intent on capitalising on this.
“MCM London Comic Con will be soaring from 25,000 m2 to 34,000 m2, spreading the event across both sides of ExCel for the first time,” said MCM joint managing director Bryan Cooney. “Growing the show’s footprint will not only allow us to provide additional exhibitor space, but will also enable us to expand our Main Theatre so even more visitors get to enjoy the latest movies from the UK’s biggest distributors, as well as cast and crew presentations.”
“MCM London Comic Con just keeps getting bigger and better,” said Paul Miley, MCM’s joint managing director. “Recent shows have not only seen us host more great films, games, sci-fi shows and comic artists, but also launch exciting new zones such as VidFestUK, dedicated to online video; MCM eSports tournaments and JapanEx, giving visitors a taste of Asian culture; there really is something for everyone!”
MCM London Comic Con returns on 25th-27th October 2013. Tickets are available at: www.mcmcomiccon.com/london/tickets, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the videogame presentations at MCM London Comic Con.
