Give the Gift of Pop Culture This Christmas With ComicCon365
The Team Behind Oz Comic Con Launches an Online Universe for the Pop Culture Community
In an extraordinary year fuelled by fires, floods, and a worldwide pandemic, convention plans were one of the first on the chopping block as events suffered dramatic setbacks and cancellations. But standing above the wreckage is a force to be reckoned with as Expertise Events, organisers of Oz Comic Con, introduces their latest initiative in the form of ComicCon365, a digital marketplace that aims to bridge the gap between fans and the wider world of pop culture in lieu of events.
Placing an emphasis on the Australian industry, the team at Expertise Events have partnered with a range of local suppliers and creators to curate an online universe for the fans to enjoy, boasting a plethora of unique features and exclusive offerings such as the digital ‘Expo Hall’ where you can shop unique and popular products from some of the largest fandoms and an ‘Artist Alley’ category that showcases handcrafted creations from local artists and makers.
Whether you’re looking to fine tune or learn new skills, ComicCon365 plays host to the ‘Workshop Stage’ featuring virtual tutorials and workshops from industry leaders that will help guide you in the right direction. With speakers from the realms of film and television, comics, gaming, and cosplay (just to name a few), there is truly something for everyone.
Whilst it’s a great opportunity to bring the pop culture community together, ComicCon365 is also the one stop shop for those planning to give the gift of pop culture this Christmas, with a range of exclusive art prints, graphic novels, and hard to find merchandise currently on offer. If that isn’t enough to pique your interest, you can now request personalised video messages from a growing list of celebrities including James Marsters ( Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel ),
Jewel Staite ( Firefly, Stargate Atlantis ), Doug Jones ( Hellboy, Star Trek Discovery ), and Chris Klein ( American Pie ).
Managing Director of Expertise Events, Gary Fitz-Roy says, “Expertise Events is proud to present a truly unique experience to the Australian pop culture community. Not only is it a massive step forward for the convention scene but it will also provide a outlet for fans all around the globe to engage with each other and enjoy the benefits of comic-con all year round.”
The platform represents a global first that aims to connect pop culture communities 365 days a year. The launch of both an online marketplace specific for exhibitors to access the fans beyond conventions and dynamic modules that can offer other content within the platform forms part of a complete multi-media approach towards events.
