    Press Release:

    ReedPOP And Emerald City Comicon Join Forces To Produce The ‘Premier Comic Book And Pop Culture Convention In The Pacific Northwest’

    Emerald City Comicon Joins the ReedPOP Family as ReedPOP Continues Rapid Growth as #1 Producer of Comic Conventions Across the Globe

    ECCC ReedPopNORWALK, CT — January 13, 2015 – ReedPOP, the world’s largest producer of pop culture events, is adding another show to its portfolio with the Emerald City Comicon (ECCC). Today, the company announces that the ‘premiere comic book and pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest’ has joined its family of leading experiential fan events. The partnership will take effect for the eagerly anticipated 2015 event taking place March 27-29 in downtown Seattle, Washington.

    ECCC, known for being a fan-oriented and comics-focused show, was founded in 2003 by local comics retailer Jim Demonakos and opened to 2,500 fans its first year. Since then, attendance has grown steadily reaching a record 70,000 in 2014 and an expected 80,000 in 2015, with 3-Day already sold out! With new comic and celebrity guests each year, ECCC stands out in the industry as providing a unique experience with heart for fans of all ages. Additionally, ECCC has created a charity art book each year since 2009 – Monsters & Dames – that has raised over $75,000 for Seattle Children’s Hospital.

    Demonakos had this to say about the partnership, “We are huge fans of what ReedPOP is doing across the globe in this pop culture space and the ECCC team is excited to have them help us elevate the fan experience at our event. We are also very much looking forward to bringing the ECCC brand of fan-focused events to help ReedPOP amplify their conventions even further.”

    Since ReedPOP’s first event in 2006, the sold-out New York Comic Con, the group has sought to produce exceptional experiences for passionate audiences and grow the industries surrounding these passions, and this philosophy has led to burgeoning attendance, the support of major creators and publishers and partnerships with leading entertainment brands including Lucasfilm (Star Wars Celebration), UFC (UFC Fan Expo) and Penny Arcade (PAX).

    In recent years, ReedPOP has turned its attention internationally, recognizing pop culture audiences emerging throughout the world, where it has produced once-in-a-lifetime experiences for these new fans and connected exhibitors to these hungry, unexplored markets. ReedPOP’s previous global events have been set in London, Germany and Singapore, and the company planted its biggest global flag to date last year in Australia, creating an Australian team to launch PAX Australia and partner with the Oz Comic-Con series of events. ReedPOP’s efforts in India were recently announced through a partnership with Comic Con India — with events in Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Hyderabad. The company also added Paris Comic Con into its fold as announced at New York Comic Con.

    “The addition of ECCC to the ReedPOP family is a huge win and we couldn’t be more excited to see how we can make each other better,” said Lance Fensterman, ReedPOP’s Global Senior Vice President. “The ECCC team is tremendous and have put together an amazing show. I know there are things we can introduce to the mix and look even more forward to what the ECCC team can bring to all our events around the globe.”

    Press Release:

    Wizard World Reports Continued Growth in Third Quarter 2014

    67% Increase from Q3 2013

    Wizard World Comic ConEl Segundo, CA, November 5, 2014 – Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD) (the “Company”), a leading provider of Comic Cons and pop culture conventions across the world, today announced that the Company has released its third quarter 2014 financial results in the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended September 30, 2014 (the “Q3 2014”).

    Highlights include:

    • The Company hosted five events in Q3 2014: San Antonio, Chicago, Chicago Socialcon, Richmond, and Nashville, bringing fans together with their favorite celebrities, artists, exhibitors in a pop culture and multimedia experience. In the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company hosted thirteen events, compared to six events in the comparable period in 2013.

    • Convention revenue for the period ended September 30, 2014 was $6,863,125, an increase of $2,749,944 (or 67%) from $4,113,181 reported in the comparable period in 2013.The significant increase in revenue in 2014 is primarily accredited to better advertised and marketed events including more programming, an exciting list of celebrities and artists, and an increasing fan base, which all translates to higher revenue growth. Convention revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was $19,174,263, as compared to $8,808,073 reported in the comparable period in 2013, an increase of $10,339,190 (or 117%) for the nine month period.

    • Operating expenses were $1,712,934 in Q3 2014, as compared to $928,776 for the same period in 2013, which was the result of increases in staffing and employment costs due to the increased number and size of the events. Operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, was $4,936,834, as compared to $2,478,819 reported in the comparable period in 2013.

    • Income from operations was $668,174 in Q3 2014, as compared to $1,096,824 for the comparable period in 2013. The decrease is primarily attributable to the overall increase in operating expenses required to support the increase in conventions and the expansion of operations. Income from operations for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, was $2,120,218 as compared to $929,250 reported in the comparable period in 2013. The increase is primarily attributable to running more events and more profitable events during the nine months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2013.

    • The Company reported a net income of $537,804 or income per share of $0.01 for the three months ended September 30, 2014, as compared to a net loss of $(1,215,115) or loss per share of ($0.03), in the comparable period in 2013.

    As of September 30, 2014, the Company had working capital of $4,464,681 and as of November 4, 2014, there were 51,341,524 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.

    San Diego Workforce Partnership (SDWP) Says SDCC Makes A Significant Economic Impact

    SDCC

    Press Release:

    Comic-Con a Significant Impact on Region’s Economy Says SDWP

    San Diego Workforce Partnership affirms Comic-Con’s value at San Diego Convention Center

    SAN DIEGO, Nov. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — San Diego Workforce Partnership (SDWP), which serves as a vital source of information on the San Diego region’s labor market, has recently published an article reviewing Comic-Con’s impact on San Diego’s workforce and the San Diego Convention Center’s staffing in particular.  Comic-Con, held annually in San Diego and organized by a nonprofit educational organization, is a convention celebrating the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.

    SDWP’s article calls attention to the estimated $320,000 in wages Comic-Con brings to the Convention Center’s 500-member staff.  In addition to those staffers, the Convention Center hires temporary employees and posts job listings prior to Comic-Con to cover needs that the regular staff cannot.  These positions include engineers, laborers, electricians, and International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees (IATSE) union workers, to name a few.

    According to the San Diego Convention Center Corporation, Comic-Con’s 2014 show has been projected to have an impact of almost $178 million on the local economy. The actual economic impact may be larger as it has since been speculated that the factors used to calculate the figure did not take into account ancillary spending by locals, out-of-town visitors and corporations, and companies that buy advertising on buildings, lamp posts, restaurant buyouts and activations of local park space and private venues.

    “Year after year, it is not lost on me the amazing number of talented people it takes to make this show happen,” said David Glanzer, spokesperson and director of marketing and public relations for Comic-Con.  “In addition to Comic-Con’s thousands of invaluable volunteers and staff, local businesses and organizations hire additional workers who make sure the event and the city are represented in the best possible light. It really is a terrific collaborative effort.”

    What is not measured in the workforce study is the economic benefit of worldwide media attention focused on America’s Finest City during the four days of the convention and throughout the year.  “We never dreamed that our local annual convention would evolve over its forty-plus years into the worldwide celebration that it is today,” said Glanzer.

    The entire article can be found on SDWP’s website at http://workforce.org/news/comic-con-impact-san-diego-convention-center-workforce.

    About Comic-Con International:
    Comic-Con International: San Diego is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.
