Creation Entertainment

Founded in 1971 by Gary Berman and Adam Malin, two young teenage sci-fi fans in New York, Creation Entertainment continues a 50 year tradition of producing the world's leading conventions for fans of genre television and film.

Inventing the concept of "traveling" fan conventions, Creation has brought its brand of live interactive entertainment events to millions of attendees throughout the United States, Canada and Great Britain. Beginning with the development of localized comic book conventions in the 1970's and 1980's, including its long running annual Thanksgiving weekend event in Manhattan, Creation later moved its interest into focusing on sci-fi, fantasy and horror television series and films.

The singular combination of professional marketing and event management coupled with a passion for subject matter made Creation produced fan conventions enormously successful. At the height of Star Trek's popularity Creation Entertainment was organizing up to 110 conventions a year, often running three or more events a weekend.

Creation's success with the Star Trek franchise clearly illustrated to the Hollywood community that hardcore fans were a valuable market for both publicity and consumer purchases, even long after a series left the air or a film awaited a sequel. Within a few years and after scores of meetings with marketing and promotion executives, every major studio began paying attention to fans and their collecting passions.

The company is still owned and operated by the original founders.
