The Truth About Comic-Con Leaving San Diego

A candid interview with Comic-Con’s Director of Marketing & PR regarding the rumors about Comic-Con International’s possible change of venue

Every summer for over 40 years, geeks of all walks of life have descended upon San Diego by the tens of thousands to attend Comic-Con International, a non-stop 5-day mega-convention celebrating comics, movies, pop culture and the visual arts. It’s almost a required coming-of-age pilgrimage for any fan of pop culture. And for 40 years, San Diego has proudly hosted Comic-Con and made welcome its 125,000+ visitors, but recent rumors and speculation about the host city of choice being subject to change have left long time convention attendees wondering where they will be going on their yearly vacation after 2012, when the convention’s contract with the San Diego Convention Center expires.

The San Diego Union Tribune reported that Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Anaheim have reached out to CCI in hopes of luring the convention away from San Diego with promises of more convention space, more hotel rooms, discounted rates for attendees and more. However, San diego area businesses are making their own efforts to keep the massive convention right where it is. Comic-Con organizers are expected to make a decision about the future of the con within a few months.

We asked David Glanzer, PR spokesman for Comic-con International, to help shed some light on these rumors.
