ACE  Universe

ACE Comic Con’s First Midwest Show


ACE Universe needed to introduce their new and immersive comic convention, ACE Comic Con, to the Chicago and Midwest market, generating consumer awareness by highlighting the convention’s groundbreaking and unique draw, marvelous headliners,  and ACE Universe President Gareb Shamus.


Over the course of our three week engagement,  the Mekky Media team raised awareness of ACE Comic Con Midwest and ACE Universe,  utilizing a variety of tactics for both pre and post event, as well as on-site coverage.



As a result of intensive local, national and niche media outreach, Mekky Media successfully generated 65  local and national media hits, garnering more than 553 million media impressions. Mekky Media also provided on-site  support throughout the weekend, managing media credentials and interviews on the convention floor.


Notable placements include:

E!, Hypable, The AV Club, News-a-Rama, Fansided, ComicBook, WCIU’s The Jam, NBC 5 Chicago, FOX 32 Chicago and WGN Radio.
