Gareb Shamus, Wizard World CEO,  Announces Partnership With Creation EntertainmentWizard World and Creation Entertainment today announced a partnership that will enhance the experience for Wizard World Comic Con Tour attendees, beginning with Chicago Comic Con, August 19-22.

Creation, which produces the world's leading conventions for fans of genre television and film, will bring VIP experiences, licensed merchandise, photo ops and other exciting opportunities to Wizard World Comic Con fans.

In Chicago, Creation and Wizard will be offering photo-ops with William Shatner!

Additionally, an exclusive Saturday Preferred Seating package will offer attendees the opportunity to reserve seats in the front of the theater to witness the Star Trek panel – the “Main Event” of the weekend! Along with these two iconic pop culture legends, the day will feature appearances by The Terminator's Linda Hamilton, “Batman's” Adam West, “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Torchwood's” James Marsters, and many more.

Founded in 1971 by Gary Berman and Adam Malin, two young teenage sci-fi fans in New York, Creation Entertainment invented the concept of "traveling" fan conventions and has brought its brand of live interactive entertainment events to over three million attendees throughout the United States, Canada and Great Britain.

“The parallel growth of Wizard and Creation in different areas of fandom has always been of interest to us. And Wizard's continuing dedication to delivering the best for fans has been the cornerstone to the success of Wizard,” said Malin. “With the addition of genre celebrities and programming to Wizard shows it was an easy decision to join forces to continue our mutual goal of providing the best in live entertainment to our fellow fans.”

“I have admired the Creation shows for as long as I can remember, and have the utmost respect for Gary and Adam, and what they've been able to accomplish,” said Gareb Shamus, Wizard World CEO. “We are thrilled to be partnering with strong brand names in the consumer convention space to bring fans the best of what they want the most - to get up close and personal with their favorite personalities!”
