ReedPop, the pop culture event producers, have partnered with ViacomCBS Consumer Products as Star Trek’s official convention partner. This new relationship will begin with Star Trek: Mission Chicago on April 8-10, 2022, at Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center.
The con will host celebrity guests, and feature interactive exhibits, photo opportunities, gaming, exclusive merchandise, costume exhibits, and more. It will give fans an immersive experience from the entirety of the Star Trek series.
Similar to Star Wars Celebration, Star Trek: Mission will not remain in one location. After that first event, each year the convention will travel to a new city in the US where more fans can experience the con.
“The Star Trek franchise has one of the most passionate and spirited fanbases out there, and we at ReedPop are excited to welcome them and ViacomCBS Consumer Products into our family,” Lance Fensterman, Global President of ReedPop, said. “Together we plan to give the fans an incredible experience to remember and I speak for all of us at ReedPop when I say that we can’t wait to experience the energy that Star Trek fans will bring to Chicago next April.”
“As the Star Trek franchise continues to grow and evolve, so too is our convention business evolving. We are excited to partner with ReedPop as our official Star Trek convention partner to take this next step in creating an event that will introduce the Trek experience to loyal and new fans alike each year,” Veronica Hart, executive vice president, global franchise management, ViacomCBS Consumer Products said.
This expands ReedPop’s slate of conventions that include New York Comic Con, C2E2, Emerald City Comic Con, and Star Wars Celebration.
