Fan Expo HQ acquires shows from Wizard World

Toronto-based consumer event producer Fan Expo HQ has acquired six US-based shows previously produced by Wizard World of Los Angeles. The deal includes events in Chicago, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Portland, St. Louis and Cleveland. These shows will be rebranded as Fan Expo events beginning in 2022. This will bring the total number of North American annual events produced by Fan Expo to 17.

“Fan Expo HQ is devoted to creating unmissable, exceptional fan experiences,” said company president Aman Gupta. “We're beyond thrilled to be able to offer that to fans in six new locations, and pleased that Wizard World recognized our ability to elevate guest experience to the next level. Every fan, at every single one of our 17 events across North America, will benefit from this game-changing announcement. As the largest producer of fan events in the world, we will be able to offer even more exclusive access to superstar talents, international brands, and innovative experiences.
