Recent changes[edit]

  • Memorabilia was purchased by events company MCM Expo Group in recent years and since then it has undergone significant change from a trade-focused event in order to attract a wider public audience. Developments have included guest Q&A sessions, screening areas and gaming tournaments.
  • Celebrity guests were originally found dotted around the hall but in recent shows have been placed together in a special guest area.
