Philly’s Wizard World is one of the biggest comic conventions in the world. And is about to get even bigger, with news it’s joining forces with the Video Game Expo.
Otherwise known as VGXPO, it’s certainly no E3, but it is still the East Coast’s largest video game show. The deal – which effectively shares content between WW in June and VGXPO in October – will see “tens of thousands of square feet” of video game-related content added to Wizard World’s floorspace, while in return, Wizard World will be sending comics stuff to VGXPO.
For interested East Coasters, Wizard World Philadelphia will take place June 19-21, while VGXPO will go down between October 9-11. Both will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
