MCM London Comic Con will boast greater show space when it returns to the Excel Centre this October.

The consumer show for movies, games, anime and dress-up fans will grow from 25,000 square metres to 34,000 square metres, spreading the event across both sides of Excel for the first time.

MCM joint managing director Bryan Cooney said: "Growing the show's footprint will not only allow us to provide additional exhibitor space, but will also enable us to expand our Main Theatre, so even more visitors get to enjoy the latest movies from the UK's biggest distributors, as well as cast and crew presentations."

The news comes after last month's MCM London Comic Con 2013 set a new attendance record, with over 76,000 movie, video game, sci-fi, anime, cosplay and comic fans attending over the long weekend. 

"MCM London Comic Con just keeps getting bigger and better," said Paul Miley, MCM's joint managing director. 

"Recent shows have not only seen us host more great films, games, sci-fi shows and comic artists, but also launch exciting new zones such as VidFestUK, dedicated to online video; MCM eSports tournaments and JapanEx, giving visitors a taste of Asian culture; there really is something for everyone."

MCM London Comic Con returns on October 25th to 27th this year. Tickets are available at www.mcmcomiccon.com/london/tickets
