It's a newly added thing for next year. They haven't run a June date since I believe the big F13 show they ran in 2011.

Personally, I don't get what exactly they're going to try to do to distinguish this from the regular MM, since they already book several non-horror pop culture type guests, but I guess we'll see.

As much as Dave drives me mad with certain things, they at least are willing to book the types of names that Horrorhound and RICC will, and Chiller does not.

True, but they're doing that already - I don't get what's going to be significantly different for the June show. Will they still book the Beverly D'Angelo, Rob Schneider, Val Kilmer, etc. type guests, just without the token Englund/Hodder/Danielle Harris/Etc. people added?

Doesn't seem to me like a big enough distinction from the usual MM to warrant a name change, but we'll see.

Agreed I really don't see the difference. Also horror guests do pop cons. So I don't know what he hopes to achieve. Only thing I can think of is maybe a more mainstream Tom Holland type guest. But I dont think the hotel can handle that.

That hotel could hardly handle Elvira and PeeWee Herman. There's no way they'd be able to handle a Tom Holland name.

Well, AJ, they are selling out now (Sat at least) both Cherry Hill shows so I assume there's plenty of vendor/booker interest in more shows.

Of course there is. I'm not questioning the idea of adding a show, I'm just scratching my head at them re-branding this one a "pop" show, when there's likely to not be a huge difference in the people they're going to book in June as opposed to March and August. Just announce "we're adding a third CH show", and don't act like it's some new and different thing. Just take the recent CH guest lists, and swap out Englund and Hodder for Carmen Electra, Lea Thompson and Biff, and that's close to what the June show is probably going to look like.

I have nothing against that, but to me it's just basically "another MonsterMania" not something new and fresh like he's making it out to be.

I suppose if they literally claim pop, and they don't book kane hodder, their loyalists can't revolt.

Here is another theory. Maybe one will be completely pop and one will be completely horror.

I suspect this is a way for Dave's son (the one that hates horror) to do his thing and book a show that has nothing to do with the genre. They've obviously been trending toward pop culture over the last few years. Considering the turn out, it's a smart move.

MONSTER-MANIA CON PRESENTS POP-MANIA!

We are THRILLED to be formally announcing our newest venture POP-MANIA CON!!!

POP-MANIA CON will be the sister show to MONSTER-MANIA and will debut the weekend of JUNE 5-7, 2020 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill, NJ!
POP-MANIA will be very similar to MONSTER-MANIA in layout, execution and heart. We will be using the same autograph rooms and vendor areas but this will enable us to bring in a bit more pop culture stars along with our usual mix of horror film stars. This will also enable us to bring in some horror stars that are unable to attend our other shows due to film schedules, etc.

We will have some very exciting guest announcements coming up in the near future and tickets will be available once we start to make the guest announcements.

Vendor tables will be going on sale to the general public on November 7th.

Hotel room reservations can now be made by calling the CROWNE PLAZA HOTEL at 856-665-6666. Be sure to ask for the discounted POP-MANIA ROOM RATE.

Thanks so much for your support and stay tuned for guest announcements coming soon!
