With the event fast approaching, we’re getting in touch to let you know how fans can get involved, socialise and make the most of their time in the New York Comic Con x MCM Comic Con Metaverse.
What is there for fans to do?
We think the real question is “What isn’t there to do over Metaverse weekend?” but here goes:
- Watch Free Panels
Fans can tune in from their phone, laptop, or TV as we stream four days of amazing FREE panels directly to them at home from our YouTube channel. They can also subscribe to our channel and be alerted when we’re going live. Check out the full schedule here.
- Shop Retailers, Exhibitors, and Creators
Just like at a live event, fans will be able to browse our Artist Alley for unique creators, snag geeky gifts and nerdy merch in the Retailer Zone, and find the latest and greatest brands on the Show Floor – only this time it’s virtual! Check back to our website from the 7th October when these areas will be live.
- Buy Official Merch
We’ll have exclusive NYCC x MCM Metaverse merchandise available in the Official Show Store with new products added right up to the event – so give it the ol’ bookmark.
- All the Fandoms!
Whether they’re an anime fan, a gamer, or just in it to build a reading list for the winter, there’s a home for all fans in the Metaverse! Visitors will find quick links to fandom pages on our website’s navbar to related panels, guests, merch, exhibitors, and creators in each.
- Celebrity experiencesWhile many guests participate in virtual panels hosted on YouTube, fans can opt for a more premium experience by booking a Meet & Greet with a celeb, requesting a personalized video, or purchasing an autograph.
Of course, no New York Comic Con or MCM Comic Con event would be complete without the opportunity for fans to connect with like-minded people, debate their most loved fandoms and interact with their favourite celebrities. We’ve added loads of opportunities for fans to socialise, and for celebrities/guests to join in too:
YouTube Panel Live Chat
Guests, partners and fans alike can join in with the live YouTube chat as a panel premieres; they can react in real time, ask questions and continue the conversation outside of the video, making for a real 360 experience.
Hop onto the ReedPop Discord server
Another great way to connect fans is in our Discord server – think YouTube live chat, but 24/7, 365 days a year. Visitors will be able to join a fandom specific channel and share stories, memes, run polls or just hang out and chat. Some guests will be joining fans after their panel premieres, with organised meet-ups, podcast sessions and even Kpop dance classes, there’s a lot going on!
Visit https://www.findthemetaverse.com/discord for more information on how to access the server and take part.
Finally, the most important thing…
This is everyone’s show; no matter where on the globe our fans are, the Metaverse is their home. We look forward to seeing you there!
