Convention Planning: Diehard Fans Deserve Dazzling Experiences

Festivals, conventions and anime events cover a universe (or even multiverse!) of topics. But they have one thing in common: diehard fans with big expectations. Maritz Global Events is here to deliver the engagement at your event that your fandom deserves.

We go to a lot of events. (We could basically navigate the top convention centers blindfolded at this point.) So, trust us when we say that festivals and conventions are some of the coolest events in the world. There’s just nothing like rallying people around a shared passion — whether it’s anime, Comic Con, gaming or something even more niche (like My Little Pony).

When is it Time to Call a Convention Planning Pro?

For many festivals and conventions, the hard part (building a strong community of fans) is done. Now, it’s just about delivering an event experience that everyone will love.

But, that’s definitely a lot of work too. Resources can be tight for convention and festival planners. And, these events can get big FAST. Organizers wonder: have we grown so big that we need some backup?

If so, that’s where we come in. We can help with any (or every) aspect of your event — from planning and marketing, to the execution and measurement.
