In an impressive move, it’s been revealed that the Certified Guaranty Company (CGC) will be attending LONDON SUPER COMIC CONVENTION. This marks the CGC’s first ever convention appearance outside of North America. The globally-known grading service will also be having their own panel and Q&A session at the event.
The below press release has been released to accompany this news:
The Certified Guaranty Company® (CGC®), the world’s leading comic book grading service, has announced its plans to exhibit at London Super Comic Convention 2015. While CGC representatives have authenticated autographs for its popular Signature Series at previous London Super Cons, the 2015 show will mark the first time that CGC has set up a booth to accept submissions.
According to Harshen Patel, CGC Director of Operations, the decision to expand the company’s presence in London was based on growing market demand.
“We’ve witnessed the increasing enthusiasm for comic book collecting in the UK and fully expect that trend to continue,” said Patel. “Every day more collectors are embracing the value of impartial grading by CGC, so the timing is right for us to accept submissions in London, just like we do at conventions here in the USA.”
CGC will hold a panel for those collectors who may not be entirely familiar with CGC and comic book certification. The panel will include a Q&A session to engage the audience and provide further clarification.
“We’re eager to share the CGC story and provide collectors with a better understanding of our process,” said Patel. “The goal is to create a comfort level and bring the benefits of grading to more UK collectors, who share our passion for comic books.”
CGC will be accepting submissions for all service levels during the London Super Comic Con. These levels include Modern, Economy, Standard, Express and more. CGC will also have witnesses available for all Signature Series requests at the show. Stop by the CGC booth to submit comic books or magazines for regular turnaround. All submissions will be sent to CGC’s office in Sarasota, Florida.
LONDON SUPER COMIC CONVENTION takes place at the Excel Centre, London on March 14th and 15th, with guests including the likes of Neal Adams, John Romita Jr., Charlie Adlard, Neil Edwards, Rahsan Ekedal, Yildiray Cinar, Ed McGuinness, and Nikita Cosplay.
