PW’s Calvin Reid grabs Comic-Con marketing director David Glanzer to ask him the lingering questions:
PWCW: I guess you’ve had to answer this question a lot, but what is your response to the general discussion out there that, perhaps, the show should move to another city?
DG: We would love to stay here; we love San Diego and it would make things so much simpler if we stay here. When we signed our last agreement with the city to stay through 2012, we knew we would have to forego growth for a few years. Now there is the possibility of the expansion of the Convention Center by the city. That’s something that wouldn’t just be just good for Comic-Con, but would be good for the city as a whole. They could book shows simultaneously and other things. But we haven’t seen much movement from the city on plans to expand the convention center.
