Our grand plan was to bring together the biggest names in all media and it is a pleasure to see the publishers, studios and TV companies getting so excited about this too. We have really hit the ground running, and I cannot wait to see what the KAPOW! team have in store to make the show even bigger next year. Several studios have already booked their panels as 2012 looks set to be a bumper year for the kind of stuff we’re into.”
