THIS WEEKEND: Midwest Media Expo 10-12 April @ Marriott RenCen

From the people who bring us the hugely successful and mad fun Youmacon comes the more broadly pop-culture-focused Media Expo. With six separate tracks, the expo has tons to offer whatever kind of fandom you got, and the RenCen location offers a great way to spread out without ever getting too far away from something cool. You should definitely check it out.

April 10-12, 2015

What is the Midwest Media Expo? 
Is this a Downtown Detroit Comic Con?

The Midwest Media Expo is a popular culture event similar to most Comic Conventions. Instead of focusing on only comics, the Midwest Media Expo is a celebration of all popular media, including: Animation, Television, Film, Literature, Video Games, Tabletop Gaming, Comics, and Internet Culture. The Midwest Media Expo will bring a unique all-ages blend of interactive events, celebrity guest panels, and live musical performances to Downtown Detroit.

In 2005 we created our first event, Youmacon, with the goal to produce a fan convention WE would want to attend. All of our events offer the very best in engaging special guests, interactive live events, free–to–play video game rooms, and high–quality fan created programming.

Ten years later, we expanded our vision to include the first Midwest Media Expo, which brought nearly 2,500 fans to the Renaissance Center to participate in our wide array of live events, special celebrity panels, tabletop and video gaming, and much more.

For the low admission price of either a one-day or a 3-day weekend pass, we offer our attendees admission to every one of our special events, the exhibitor hall, artist alley, special celebrity guest panels, musical events, and more!
