Press Release!
GCX Holdings LLC announced today that it has reached an agreement to merge Mid-Ohio-Con with Ohio Comic Con. The new Mid-Ohio-Con will bring together the best that both conventions have to offer with respect to special guest list, programming, schedule, venue, and organizational teams. Mid-Ohio-Con 2008 will take place on the weekend of October 4–5 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio.

“I couldn’t be more excited about this development,” said James Henry, Managing Director of GCX Holdings, which recently acquired Mid-Ohio-Con. “I strongly believe that Mid-Ohio-Con and Ohio Comic Con will be far better together than they would be separately. This combination is a great outcome for everybody involved, including our creative guests, retailers and other exhibitors, and especially the loyal fans who have attended Mid-Ohio-Con year after year.”

“We are very happy to be combining Ohio Comic Con with Mid-Ohio-Con,” said Teresa Colegrove, Co-Founder of Ohio Comic Con and Packrat Comics. “Our primary goal in forming Ohio Comic Con was always to ensure that there was a great convention in our home state, and we’ve certainly accomplished that with the combination of our two events. We have lots of new ideas that we’re looking forward to contributing to this year’s Mid-Ohio-Con.”

“I’m certainly pleased to see this combination take place,” said Roger Price, Founder of Mid-Ohio-Con. “Our new team has a lot of energy and enthusiasm as well as innovative ideas and I’m look forward to working with them on this year’s event. We’ve just launched our new web site and stay tuned in the coming weeks for news about additions to our guest list for Mid-Ohio-Con 2008, as well as some exciting new additions to our programming schedule.”
