MCM to visit Scotland for the first time in 2013

2013 will see the MCM magic head north of the border for the first MCM Scotland Comic Con – a brand new one-day festival brought to you by the organisers of Britain’s biggest popular culture event, MCM London Comic Con.

Debuting on 31 August at Scotland’s premier national events venue, SECC Glasgow, MCM Scotland Comic Con will feature everything from new movies, much-loved sci-fi shows and top comic creators to the latest videogames, anime and manga …plus a great special guest line-up, of course!

“MCM are so looking forward to bringing our brand to Glasgow’s SECC,” said show co-organiser Bryan Cooney. “Our sponsors and exhibitors have been asking for a Scottish event and in 2013 they will get their wish. We look forward to visiting the city of Glasgow.”

Breda Cruickshank, Head of Exhibition Sales, SECC commented: “We are delighted to be welcoming this exciting event to Glasgow. Hosting such varied sectors of the entertainment industry, from comics and manga to film and cult fiction will make for an action packed weekend!”

The announcement comes after the huge success of the existing MCM Midlands Comic Con in February and MCM Manchester Comic Con in July, which drew 11,300 visitors on only its second outing. The launch of MCM Scotland Comic Con means that film fans, gamers, anime enthusiasts, cosplayers and collectors now have the chance to attend MCM events in London, Glasgow, Manchester, Birmingham and Telford.

MCM will also be expanding their Birmingham events during 2013, with the Memorabilia Show now being permanently co-located with the new MCM Birmingham Comic Con at the NEC. The comic con debuted alongside Memorabilia in March 2012, and the overwhelming positive visitor response means that the show will now be joining MCM’s roster of permanent events.

The MCM Group’s next event is the Memorabilia Birmingham collectors’ show, which takes place at the NEC this weekend, 24-25 November. To find out more about Memorabilia, please visit www.memorabilia.co.uk
