I could have told you that was going to be the case. The comic con people do not want to move. But they had to make their deals. Today they announced they would be staying here for the foreseeable future.
Although Comic-Con has had to cap attendance at about 125,000 people every year since it reached capacity in 2007. Its lease at the San Diego Convention Center ends in 2012, and although Anaheim and LA were considered as venues to move to, Comic-Con will stay in San Diego through 2015.
Tomorrow, a press conference will tell the world exactly WHY the Con decided to stay in San Diego. We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, if you have any ideas, post them in the comments!
