About Super City

Our Mission & Who We Are

Super City Events

The Problem(s)

The “Comic Con” scene has absolutely exploded but the amount of space in a convention center remains the same. The “experience” remains the same or worse with the amount of people in a convention center. Prices are going up. There are no free options.

The Opportunity

Rochester. The city is strategically positioned to be the top solution. We have festivals like the Jazz Fest and Fringe fest that rival those numbers of attendance. We have the logistical experience. The international airport. The National Toy Hall of Fame. Kodak. And so much more. You can’t utilize the city of San Diego, Toronto or New York City like we can. Breaking out of the over crowded convention center and busting out into the streets. We can also provide free and paid events that are more specialized and less cost prohibitive throughout the city.

Needs

We are aiming to raise $250,000 or more to secure everything for year one.

Outlook

In year one we believe we can generate between 15,000 and 35,000 in attendance depending on the timing of and amount of sponsors.

In years 3-5, 100,000+.

We hope you will join us in our efforts to bring a real family friendly, inclusive, pop culture event to a great city with so much history, present excitement and a bright future, like Rochester.
