There are a bunch of stories running on various websites, including Variety that are talking about Comic-Con possibly moving away from San Diego if the city doesn’t suck it up and make with bigger space.Â All the speculation about Los Angels, Las Vegas, and Anaheim is nice and all, but it sounds like something I yammered on about a couple of years ago.Â Back then, everyone called me crazy, and denounced my thoughts, but now…hurm.
So far Los Angeles, Anaheim and Las Vegas are the main contenders for the show, and have offered up their own convention centers and facilities and touting the number of hotel rooms available around those venues to house ticket buyers — which is key to hosting the show.
“They know what the concerns are and each proposal really tries to address those,” [David] Glanzer said. “We have to look at them all and see which makes the most sense.”
Which city will wind up the home of future Comic-Cons will be determined when the event’s board meets over the next several weeks.
At this point, San Diego has announced it will expand the convention center, even though most of the city’s populace poo-poos the convention that brings $60 million to the city each year.Â Will San Diego remain the home of the con, or will one of my predictions come true?
