Salt Lake Comic Con now 3rd largest comic con in US

Last weekend, here in my neck of the woods, was the Salt Lake Comic Con FanXperience (FanX) – a sister Con to the Comic Con that started last summer. It boasted over 100,000 attendees. The event was more geared toward connecting fans with entertainment celebrities, but it was still a comic con. Tickets go on sale next month for the larger Salt Lake Comic Con slated for September 4-6, 2014. If you’re an artist who wants a presence at a major Con, check out Salt Lake Comic Con.

“The fact that we exceeded attendance expectations proves that Salt Lake City is a focal point for Comic Con and pop culture and is further proof to the Comic Con world that Salt Lake is a major player in the industry,” said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt Lake Comic Con Co-founder and VP of Marketing. “The increased success will serve as evidence moving forward that will attract celebrities, vendors and production companies, which in turn will help increase the overall fan experience as well as the visibility of Salt Lake Comic Con and Utah in general. Our aim is to offer a complementary convention to the annual San Diego Comic-Con International.”

Editor’s note: I have no financial interest in promoting this event other than to strengthen it locally.
