The MCM Buzz can report that following last weekend’s MCM London Comic Con, the organisers have revealed that May’s event has reached another milestone, with the announcement that over 100,000 people attended!
The final number of 101,600 is an increase of over 31,500 on the May 2013 event and an increase of over 13,600 on the October 2013 event. “This has been the most successful MCM London Comic Con on record – in fact, the largest event of its kind ever held in the UK,” said show co-organiser Bryan Cooney.
This event also saw the show expand and take over more of the ExCeL Centre than ever before, increasing certain areas of the event. A fact that is echoed in a statement by show co-organiser, Paul Miley, “This latest show saw us respond to public demand by expanding our online video, eSports and Asian culture offerings. And when we return in October, the show will be even bigger and better!”
One thing that is certain however is that if this trend continues then the figures for the group’s next London event, scheduled for October 24th-26th, could well be even higher!
