NY Comic Con expands to four days

News

USA – ReedPop, organiser of the New York Comic Con, will extend the length of the show to four days for its 2011 edition.

The new schedule, running from 13 to 16 October 2011, will include three days open to the public and one day for professionals.

“Our show has simply gotten too big to take place in three days,” said ReedPop group VP Lance Fensterman. “The evening hours for professionals on Thursday will provide more flexibility for both exhibitors and other industry pros to participate in this key part of the show,” he added.

In 2010, the event drew almost 100,000 visitors to New York’s Jacob K Javits Center.

Last year, the San Diego Comic Con reached the capacity limits of San Diego Convention Centre, causing speculation that it will move to a new city.
