ReedPop, a boutique group within Reed Exhibitions that is devoted to organising events, launching and acquiring new shows, and partnering with pop culture brands, will buddy up with local company DCA Enterprises to help out with the 2014 shows and co-produce the 2015 program.
2014 sees Oz Comic-Con adding shows in Sydney and Brisbane, as well as continuing on in Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide where it has run for the past two years, drawing around 90,000 fans in 2013 alone.
Oz Comic-Con’s celebrity guests to date have included William Shatner, Stan Lee, Sir Patrick Stewart, Shannen Doherty, Richard Dean Anderson and many more.
ReedPop’s global vice president Lance Fensterman said, “We are thrilled to work with the entire team at Oz Comic-Con and together build fan experiences that are bigger, better and more amazing than either of us could do alone. We look forward to blending ReedPOP’s experience with DCA’s local knowledge, to build fan experiences all over Australia on a scale never seen before”.
