About CrimeCon:

CrimeCon UK is owned and run by Exhibit A Events Ltd, a newly formed joint entity established by Kevin Balfe of Red Seat Ventures and Michael Dynan of The Assembly. Red Seat Ventures are a US company, founders of CrimeCon and leaders in building and operating direct-to-fan live and digital businesses.

The Assembly are a UK based specialist in events, both physical and virtual and are formed to help partners from the UK and abroad in bringing overseas events or creating their IP into successful event formats.

Exhibit A will explore more opportunities within the true crime genre and also within the wider events sector.

The first CrimeCon launched in Nashville in 2017 to a room of just a few hundred true crime enthusiasts and in four years has grown several times larger, now hosting audiences in excess of 5000 people with an online community of over 300,000 people. 50,000 people watched the recent virtual event and even a cruise was scheduled for this October (now moved back to next year). The CrimeCon brand also hosts ‘crowd solve’ events where a few hundred of the most hardcore investigative fans get together and are allowed to examine evidence from cold cases to try and piece the clues together to give the law enforcement officers new leads in an otherwise cold case.

CrimeCon has always helped support the families, victims, survivors, and associated charities of crime. No-one is ever featured, no case talked about without the families of any survivors or victims being consulted and approving. It is often a place where families can keep their story in the public eye and can keep media attention drawn to their plight.
