ReedPOP acquired Florida Supercon, the largest comic, anime, gaming, and pop culture convention of south Florida, held in Miami Beach from July 4-7. Guests will include John Cusack, Richard Dean Anderson, Creed Bratton, Christy Carlson-Romano, and Felicia Day.
Florida Supercon is one of several shows founded and managed by Mike Broder and Sandy Martin, owners of the company GalaxyCon, which will continue to run other conventions on its own. ReedPOP also acquired the trademark for the name “Supercon” from Broder.
ReedPOP is adding a second convention in South Africa for May 2020, called Comic Con Africa Capetown, in addition to the show it runs in Johannesburg.
The final ReedPOP announcement, reported by Comics Beat, is that the company is partnering with the “fan to fan ticket exchange” platform Lyte to give fans a legal way to resell their tickets to Emerald City Comic Con (March 14-18 in Seattle) or the Star Wars Celebration (April 11-15 in Chicago).
