Mike Broder and his team have done an amazing job in making this show one that has incredible fan and industry support. We plan to spend time listening to the fans and exhibitors and then investing to build upon the awesome convention and continue to give the great fan base a fantastic experience.

Mike Armstrong, vice president of ReedPOP, commented: “I’m excited to continue to get to know the enthusiastic South Florida fan base and to have the opportunity to take an already great show and continue to make it better.” Armstrong will provide event leadership along with Kristina Rogers, the event director for New York Comic Con and C2E2.
