MCM Expo has revealed it is expanding the series further with a new event in Belfast, Northern Ireland.
The inaugural MCM Belfast Comic Con will be held on 7-8 June 2014 at Kings Hall and comes only a week after announcing the launch of its first international Comic Con event in Dublin.
The event joins the organiser’s sci-fi, videogames and comics event portfolio, including editions in London, Manchester, and Scotland.
"We're delighted to be bringing our popular comic con brand to Belfast next year,” said MCM co-organiser Paul Miley. “After we announced our new Dublin show, Northern Irish comic book fans were asking when they were going to get an event. "With MCM shows now covering the whole of England, Ireland and Scotland, there's never been a better time for gamers, comic collectors, sci-fi enthusiasts, movie buffs and fans of geek culture in general to check out the comic con scene."
MCM Expo recently held its inaugural Scotland Comic Con, which the organiser hailed as the largest comic convention the country has ever seen, attracting 20,000 visitors (unaudited).
"As the recent record-breaking Scotland Comic Con proved, there's an increasing appetite for MCM comic conventions at the moment," added MCM co-organiser Bryan Cooney. "We'd like everyone to come along and experience one for themselves, and with our ever-expanding roster of top quality events, that's never been easier."
