San Diego Comic-Con Will Stay in San Diego Through 2021
Announced earlier today, San Diego Comic-Con will remain in the city of San Diego through 2021. The convention has an impact of $135 million dollars a year. Negotiations to stay took over a year.
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer emphasized that improvements need to be made to expand the convention center and guarantee the convention stays in the city. Limited space is a concern for the convention, something mentioned multiple times through the presentation. Hotel space, and negotiations with local hotels, was also highlighted. Hotel prices and the difficulty of obtaining rooms has been a concern.
2019 is the 50th anniversary of the show.
