Denver Comic Con becoming Denver Pop Culture Con in 2019; Reno event added

Denver Comic Con is the latest event to rebrand and distance itself from the litigious “comic-con” name.

Pop Culture Classroom, the Colorado literacy education nonprofit behind the event, announced Monday the name change from Denver Comic Con to Denver Pop Culture Con.

“Conversation around a name change has been going on for several years, with the goal to create stronger brand alignment between Pop Culture Classroom’s name and its signature events, including Denver Pop Culture Con and Reno Pop Culture Con, a new event debuting in 2019,” reads a statement from the group.

“The new name is meant to encompass everything that goes on at the con — comics, television and film, authors, cosplay, workshops, educational programming, and all other aspects of pop culture fandom Denver Comic Con has grown to include since its inception in 2010. With the addition of Reno Pop Culture Con, now is the ideal time for the name change. Pop Culture Classroom is focused on ensuring both the Denver and Reno shows are world-class, inclusive events.”
