A HUGE Thank You to our 2020 Sponsors:

   

Want to become a sponsor for 2020?

With billion dollar box office hits like Avengers, Captain Marvel, Shazam, Aquaman, Wonder Woman, Batman, X-Men and others, the world of comics has hit the big time!  What do all of those movies have in common?  They all started as a visual story in a comic book.  Memphis Comic Expo (MCX) shines a spotlight on the artists and writers who create the inspiration and stories made popular by the cinematic universe.

2020 will mark the 7th year for MCX, a locally owned, comic-creator focused convention with the largest creator guest list of any show within 500 miles of Memphis.

Attendance has risen steadily from 1,800 to over 3500 in a few short years with continual growth expected. MCX is a family-friendly environment with diverse demographics. Currently, our content reaches over 13,000 followers across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.  Our website averages over 300 views per day, with over 2500 per day as the show date draws near.

2020 MCX will feature over 150 local and regional exhibitors, creators and vendors that cater to a wide spectrum of interests such as comic books, toys, games, movies, wrestling, television, amine, manga, cosplay, original artwork, handmade items, apparel and much more.  In addition, a roster of comic industry professionals and local celebrities are in attendance for meet and greet. With an enhanced costume contest, Q&A panels with some of the biggest names in comics, educational panels, a dedicated video game room and tournament, encounters with professional cosplayers & local costuming groups, and movie prop replicas, there is something for everyone!

MCX is proud to again host a charity art auction to benefit a local organization. The 2018 and 2019 Drink & Draw events raised over $5000 for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Your sponsorship helps ensure that MCX can continue to attract the best creators in the comics industry and enhance the attendee experience with new features and activities while keeping ticket prices low.  We look forward to partnering with your organization to better serve the Memphis community!

The sooner you sign on as a sponsor, the more exposure you will receive via our website and social media!
