The Press Release:
ReedPop, the world’s leading producer of pop culture events, today announced Metaverse Membership, an annual membership program that gives fans from around the world unparalleled access to New York Comic Con, MCM Comic Con, C2E2 and Emerald City Comic Con.

Beginning late June, fans can sign up for a Metaverse Membership that grants first access to show badges, photo ops & autographing tickets, and paid digital experiences; exclusive access to video content and celebrity panels; an exclusive enamel membership pin; and access to exclusive show merchandise online. With a mix of onsite show privileges and an unparalleled level of digital content debuting throughout the year, both in-person Con-goers and fans who want to enjoy their favorite Cons from home can enhance their fandom experience by becoming a Metaverse Member.

“Through a series of surveys over the past year, we asked nearly 100,000 fans what they wanted to see, and more importantly, how they wanted to see it,” said Lance Fensterman, Global President of ReedPop. “We took all that data and sketched out our Metaverse Membership program, essentially built by our fans with what’s most important to them. Our fans are the embodiment of our events and their feedback is invaluable to us. As a Metaverse Member, fans can enjoy all our shows have to offer, from wherever they feel most comfortable doing so. At home or in person, Metaverse Memberships will enhance the Con experience in a brand new way and offer greater access to content and exclusives than ever before.”

Fans who purchase a Superfan Membership between launch and July 8 at 11:59 PM ET, will have first access to a stress-free buying experience for two (2) badges per type to New York Comic Con 2021.

Badges will go on sale for NYCC 2021 on July 11. In order to safely host the event, NYCC will be held at reduced capacity this year in accordance with state and local guidelines. Badges will be available exclusively to Superfan members, and then those who were Fan Verified in 2019. To maximize the number of fans who can attend NYCC at the Javits Center each day, NYCC has removed 4-day badges and will offer Single Day badges only. Fans who do not have a Fan Verification account from 2019 or are not a Superfan member may be able to find tickets available through Lyte, ReedPop’s official fan reselling platform, closer to the show. As stated earlier this year, ReedPop will adjust their plans as safety guidelines and conditions change. Stay tuned to the New York Comic Con website for updates.

New York Comic Con 2021 will take place at the Javits Center in New York City on October 7-11, with virtual content running concurrently on FindTheMetaverse.com.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: While this is an interesting premise I am sure that it will come with miles of ire from the denizens of unhappy on social media. Dropping a Ben Franklin on something is not so easily a practice after the time that the world has had and everyone being tight for cash but maybe the benefits of this fan club outweigh the bad. I’ve been attending the New York Comic Con since 2010 and historically speaking have gone as a member of the media. With limited attendance being permitted and less passes to go around I expect this to be a tricky application this year so send us the good energy on that. Though we were sad to have lost NYCC 2020, there was no way that it could have happened under the circumstances. I actually used the time creatively last year and made a bunch of convention videos of my photo galleries and have a whole playlist to enjoy on our Official YouTube Channel. Please click through the video embedded below and give us a subscribe since it will show you newbies what this convention is like if you’ve never seen it. Closing up I wonder what you diehard convention goers think about this news and if you’re entertaining thoughts about attending this year’s convention. You can do that down below in the comments and know that I’d love to hear from you. See you next time, please stay safe out there.
