MCM Expo acquires Europe's longest running show for Collectors

As part of the strategic expansion by MCM Expo, we are delighted to confirm that as of May 1st 2008 the show and brand MEMORABILIA will become part of the MCM Expo family of shows.

This acquisition brings together not only the two top brands in this field, MCM Expo and Memorabilia, but also the UK's two top venues ExCeL London&NEC Birmingham. Both shows are held twice a year, maximising the marketing opportunities for exhibitors&sponsors.
