MCM Expo Group spreads wings to Sweden


MCM Expo Group has partnered with event organiser Artexis to present Sweden’s first ever multi-media comic convention, Comic Con Stockholm, which is currently taking place at Stockholm’s Kistamässan venue from 29 October to 1 November. Meanwhile, a second show – Comic Con Malmö – will make its debut on 11-13 September 2015.

Incorporating the popular gaming fair Gamex, Comic Con Stockholm is a spectacular four day celebration of movies, videogames, sci-fi, comics and cosplay. This year’s show features top videogame publishers such as Sony, Microsoft, Ubisoft and Bandai, alongside a special guest line-up that includes RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad), Mackenzie Lintz (The Hunger Games, Under The Dome) and Grace Victoria Cox (Under The Dome).

“The comic con phenomena is sweeping the globe right now, with events such as San Diego Comic Con and MCM London Comic Con soaring in popularity,” commented project leader Gital Al-Ebeyawi. “We’re delighted to give Sweden’s gamers, sci-fi fans, comic collectors and cosplayers an event of their own.”

MCM managing director Bryan Cooney added: “The addition of the Stockholm and Malmö shows to MCM’s calendar means that Swedish sci-fi, film, videogame and anime fans can now enjoy the great comic con experience that has proved so popular with visitors to our events across England, Scotland and Ireland.”

MCM’s most recent UK event – MCM London Comic Con – saw a record number of visitors pass through its doors, with more than 110,000 people attending the ExCel London show.
