Comic-Con to Remain in San Diego Through 2016

ABC10 News:
The wildly popular Comic-Con International convention, which attracts comic book and movie fans from around the world, will be held at the San Diego Convention Center through 2016, its operators and Mayor Jerry Sanders announced Monday.

City officials and the organizers of the celebration of pop culture said they agreed to a one-year extension of their current contract. Details, such as room rates at area hotels, still need to be worked out, said David Glanzer, Comic-Con's director of marketing and communications.

The story is too old to be commented.

This is good news. I for one think it would be a mistake to move it to another city. I know they have a couple of big cities in mind but this one works because of the weather for the most part.

My question is, why the hell would you move SAN DIEGO Comic con out of San Diego? Too small? Then take your customers elsewhere. It's San Diego's comic con and you are part of matter what there should ALWAYS be a San Diego Comic Con....just like Arizona Comic Con, or Whatever your city is Comic Con.

The weather is the tipping point to going. If you were to move it to LA, it kind of loses some appeal. No longer a nice city with nice weather, and it will most likely be hot. Normally is when we go to E3.
