“Wizard World creates an engaging, interactive experience for the fandom community”

We set out to celebrate fandom and connect our readers

Founded in 1991, our company started as Wizard Magazine, a publication dedicated to fandom. It included a comic book price guide and industry interviews and news spanning film, television, anime, comic books, and collectibles. As our company and customer base grew, so did the demand for bringing our publication to life.

Our readers and fans sought out a live event experience where they could not only meet and interact with one another, but also with some of their favorite writers, artists, creators, and on-screen heroes. We have now produced hundreds of multi-genre fandom conventions throughout North America.

The online fandom community is missing a social component

In a world of increasing online interaction, there is a growing interest from fans for opportunities to engage with one another in an environment that celebrates their community and is free from criticism. 

While the internet provides a space for fans to connect from home, there is a level of engagement that can’t be achieved through a screen. Readers and enthusiasts seek a live, interactive outlet for their passions where they can bring their creativity and imagination to life and share it with a like-minded group of people.

Wizard World provides an engaging, inclusive environment for tens of thousands of fans a year

We are a traveling pop culture expo, bringing multi-genre pop culture conventions to the cities and homes of millions of fans around North America. They can meet, participate in photo ops, or get an autograph from their favorite creators and heroes. We also work with some of the best merchandise and collectible manufacturers to bring exclusive, limited run, or one-of-a-kind items to the events. 


Most importantly, we provide a fun, engaging environment where fans can interact with other like-minded individuals.

Our conventions have connected fans from coast to coast

Ever since our start as a fandom publication in 1991, our readers and fans have shown an ever-growing enthusiasm for our content and ways to engage with others in the community. This has allowed us to bring live event opportunities to hundreds of thousands of fans and counting all across North America. 

What started as a single event in Chicago in 1996, has now grown to 16 events in 2019 with plans for international and genre expansion.

We bring our multi-day event to cities across the country

Wizard World is a 3 to 4 day event that brings all the best components of fan conventions to cities across North America. Our traveling expo incorporates fan celebrations, live entertainment, access to popular film and TV stars, and opportunities to engage with creators of pop culture books and franchises. 

We also provide access to sought-after merchandise thanks to our strong relationship with manufacturers and get our fans in on the action with a costume contest with big prizes. We energize and celebrate our fan base so they leave feeling more connected to their passions and each other.

The fandom community is passionate and growing

Fandom events are experiencing massive growth. Year over year more fans excitedly come out to conventions and our events are welcoming an ever-evolving fan base.

According to a survey of 2600+ random fandom convention-goers, most have more than one passion. On average, this group identified as “super fans” of 3.2 different pop culture categories like Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Genre Movies, and Gaming. 85% of people identify as fans of something, and that number climbs to 97% for those in the 18-24 age range.

Historically, men have dominated fandom events but attendance is now squarely split between men and women!

We have a strong fanbase and notable relationships with major fandom players

We service more cities and people annually than any other competitor in this space. We are a long-standing brand that fans know and recognize. Our finger is on the pulse of past, current, and upcoming fandom trends that allow us to stay ahead of the curve with the featured guests, entertainers, artists, manufacturers and other fandom convention elements. Strong relationships with studios, networks, and agencies allow us to provide opportunities that other convention producers can’t access.

Our events have multiple revenue streams

With everything from ticket sales to partnerships to merchandise, our traveling expo has many sources of revenue that include:

  • Ticket Sales (General Admission, VIP Packages, Photo Ops, Autographs, Workshops, Special Events, Meet & Greets)

  • Exhibitor Booths

  • Artist Tables

  • Sponsorships

  • And More

Expanding throughout the North American market

Currently, while we aim to keep our focus on major North American markets, with a successful showing in 16 cities in 2019, we plan to expand the genres we cover and our international presence to bring our traveling expo to more people around the world.  

We also plan to venture out into more markets with identified potential and continue to host events to reach our fan base which has proven enthusiastic about the opportunities attending a Wizard World weekend offers.

50 years of industry experience in live entertainment

  • Wizard Entertainment is managed by a core team of seven executives with a combined industry experience of over fifty years in the entertainment and live event space bringing expertise in the functional areas of Sales, Logistics, Marketing, Talent, Finance, Experiential Entertainment and Programming.

  • The Wizard Entertainment entity is overseen by a board of directors, the members of which provide significant experience and input in the areas of finance, management and entertainment.

We are a leader in the fandom industry, which shows no signs of slowing down

Market statistics show increasing fandom growth. We have separated ourselves from the rest of the pack as the premier producers of live fandom events. As we continue to move forward, we anticipate no shortage of fandom opportunities.

With your investment, we can continue to provide this safe, engaging space where like-minded enthusiasts can come together to celebrate who they are and what they love. In addition, being an owner means gaining special access at Wizard World events not available to any other convention attendees.
