The 2015 San Diego Comic Con got off to a get start as normal by selling out all available tickets within a hour of going on sale. This is the second year of a new tickets policy that takes aim at some of the problems that occurred back in 2013.
The comic-con pulls in a estimated 130,000 people each year. The San Diego Convention center and Gaslamp Quarter are pushing the limits of how many they can hold comfortably. The show is committed to San Diego until 2016 but with it over flowing with attendees Comic-Con is starting to look to places like Anaheim and Las Vegas to hold the convention.
San Diego’s tourism authority is working on getting the show to sign up for another 2 years. This all depends on the Convention Center and local business to offer steep discounts during Comic-Con.
This years show takes place July 9-12.
