LOS ANGELES, February 2, 2017—Wizard World (OTCBB: WIZD) today announced the relaunch of its website, www.wizardworld.com, with a fresh redesign providing users more relevant information on its nationwide tour of pop culture conventions and associated business units, in a highly intuitive and sleek format. The all-encompassing new look and feel is in line with the Wizard World brand’s standing as a leader in the industry and the company’s expansion into other areas of the entertainment world. The website was designed in partnership with and under the direction of Charles Bell of Tool Studios, a leader in creative custom solutions.
“Our website is the front facing look of the company and a critical component of how our fans discover and experience all that Wizard World has to offer,” said John D. Maatta, Wizard World President & CEO. “That’s why it is so important for us to have a professional, easily navigable site that highlights our shows and entertainment options, but that also has the ability to seamlessly include two very important and transcendent new Wizard World business units which will be announced in the coming days. Wizard World is shedding its old small-time skin and is aggressively moving into the vanguard of the pop culture event and entertainment space.”
Maatta added: “Charles Bell’s team at Tool Studios was instrumental in helping the Wizard World Team design an improved user experience that will allow us to better connect digitally with consumers. We are very proud to showcase Wizard World on the new site as we progress forward into new verticals.”
