April 23, 2024

ReedPop has announced that MCM Comic Con and EGX will co-locate at ExCeL London this October. Taking place from October 25th – 27th, this will be the first time the two events bring together the UK’s largest pop culture and video games conventions under one roof.

MCM Comic Con hosts an array of guests, authors, artists, exhibitors, cosplayers and fans from across diverse fandoms. These range from Dungeons & Dragons to Ted Lasso – and everything in between, making MCM Comic Con the UK’s greatest geek and pop culture event.

Meanwhile, EGX is the ultimate celebration of everything gaming has to offer. The event brings players and publishers together, putting both upcoming and classic games in the hands of eager gamers. ReedPop has additionally announce that TikTok will return as the headline sponsor of EGX in 2024, bringing an array of opportunities for fans to meet even more of their favourite TikTok creators.

“What it means to be a gamer on TikTok has evolved in recent years, and gaming culture on our platform no longer exists in a neatly-defined silo. On TikTok, gaming creators inspire each other through joyful and authentic content that’s helpful and transcends gameplay boundaries. Many are discovering games through the intersectionality of their interests, this is why we are so excited that EGX and Comic Con are teaming up under one roof. There really is a community for everyone on TikTok, and as lead partner for EGX again this year, we can’t wait to see and welcome the diversity of fandoms attending the event,” commented Langer Lee, Global Head of Gaming at TikTok.

MCM Comic Con and EGX will feature all the elements visitors have come to expect from both conventions, including Cosplay Central, Artist Alley at MCM, playable games and gaming career advice at EGX, and much more.

This October, EGX and MCM will run for three days and will offer a broader range of activities and celebrity guests to engage with across both conventions. Attendees will gain access to both events with only a single ticket.

“Following years of success across both MCM Comic Con and EGX, we’re delighted that we can finally bring these staple pop culture and gaming events togetherm” said Teresa Heitor Goncalves, Event Director at ReedPop. “This has been a long time in the making, and the team are looking forward to bringing an elevated experience to fans this year.”
