ReedPOP, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, today announced that top genre news and editorial site SYFY WIRE will be the exclusive live stream partner for three of ReedPOP’s biggest shows: Emerald City Comic Con, Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) and New York Comic Con.
As official live stream partner, SYFY WIRE will host the Live Stages on the main floor at each of the three shows. Correspondents will conduct interviews with celebrities and creators, provide previews of exclusive merchandise and upcoming films and series, and give fans an inside look at the hottest programming happening on the ground. SYFY WIRE will also stream content from some of the most eagerly anticipated panel rooms at each event.
Digitally, coverage can be found at SYFY WIRE’s website, its YouTube channeland social media platforms. In addition, select SYFY WIRE coverage will also be featured on television via the SYFY channel.
“We have fans all around the globe that cannot join us in Seattle, Chicago or New York for these three amazing shows,” said Lance Fensterman, Global Head of ReedPOP. “As the premier portal for genre news, editorial and discussion, we can’t think of a better partner than SYFY WIRE to bring this exclusive content to superfans of all kinds.”
