NostalgiaCon Rebrands to RetroPop Con as New Platform for Expansion
RetroPop identity focuses on the multi-generational vibrancy and iconic fun of great throwback pop culture
MIAMI, FL – February 18, 2020 – (HISPANICIZE WIRE) – NostalgiaCon, LLC today announced that the company’s pop culture conventions business has been rebranded RetroPop Con. See the brand’s new video here: https://youtu.be/KrJka5iE13E.
“RetroPop will serve our throwback pop culture conventions and media business much better because nostalgia typically alludes to those who lived an era whereas retro extends to include all generations who appreciate the iconic decade trends, innovators and classics,” said founder and CEO Manny Ruiz. “Our new identity is cool, electric, and fashionable in a vintage sense that is multi-generational and universal. With a refined direction, investors, and other robust partnerships that this year will help us scale nationally, this is the perfect time to refresh our brand to the one that represents our long-term vision.”
RetroPop Con debuts in Miami when the company hosts its second and largest national ‘80s pop culture convention, April 25-26 at the MANA Convention Center in Wynwood. RetroPop Con Miami, which is being presented in partnership with iHeartMedia Miami, will announce its first wave of music artists and celebrities on Thursday, with successive music acts and celebrities following each week leading up to the show.
RetroPop Con Miami features a jam-packed weekend of music acts representing all the genres of the ‘80s, film and TV show reunions, exhibitors and collectors, exclusive merchandise, panels, cosplay, arcade gaming, classic ‘80s cars, and other surprises. Earlier this year, E! News named the show one of the Top 50 pop culture events to look forward to alongside Coachella 2020, the 2020 Olympics, and the Super Bowl LIV Halftime Show.
NostalgiaCon, LLC continues as the legal entity responsible for all the financial, operational, and investor relations of the RetroPop Con conventions. Media inquiries can be directed to [email protected]. Investor relations’ inquiries can be sent to [email protected].
