Despite perennial rumors that Comic-Con organizers want to leave San Diego for a larger city with bigger convention space, the event’s marketing director says they’d prefer to stay put.
“We were born in San Diego. We want to stay in San Diego,” David Glanzer told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “It’s more than just money. When the mayor was here on Thursday, that went a long way. We mean a lot to the city.”
That doesn’t mean others cities haven’t come courting, though. Glazer said cities such as Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Anaheim are interested in the convention.
However, the event is confirmed in San Diego for at least two more years, which is certainly good news for the city: Although organizers are still counting, it looks as if this year’s con attendance surpassed last year’s 104,000 figure.
