After this year’s convention, Comic-Con organizers will be voting on whether the event will stay in San Diego. San Diego has been its home since its founding in 1970, but rumor is Los Angeles, Anaheim and even Las Vegas are vying for the next contract which will begin in 2013.
Put simply, San Diego is becoming less and less cost-effective for hosting Comic-Con, which is growing at exponential rates. The San Diego Convention Center has not been able to accommodate more attendees or exhibit vendors, which have since spilled out into temporary tents and nearby hotel ballrooms. Additionally, Hollywood studios and TV networks are pushing for the move closer to Los Angeles, which would more easily accommodate Comic-Con’s growing number of movie and TV representatives. Could the popular art take-over be changing Comic-Con too much? Should Comic-Con stay true to its roots—graphic novels and San Diego? You tell us!
