ReedPOP is expanding it’s international reach with Shanghai Comic Convention, to be held May 16-17 in China. The company also produces global events such as Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention, India Comic Con, Australia’s Oz Comic Con, PAX Australia, Star Wars Celebration Europe and Paris Comic Con. Lance Fensterman, ReedPOP’s global senior vice president, said in a statement:
“China is a massive frontier for ReedPOP, a huge market and boundless community of fans that we are eager and enthusiastic to build events for. This is a huge opportunity for the millions of fans in the country who haven’t experienced a ReedPOP event and we can’t wait to see how they respond. Geekdom is a universal language and we’re sure that the Chinese people will celebrate fan culture in their own unique and amazing ways.”
ReedPOP is flying in creators David Finch, Billy Tan and Adi Granov, as well as actors Lee Pace and Robin Lord Taylor so far. At this point, no corporate exhibitors have been announced. Stay tuned!
