Official Press Release
Congers, NY – Wizard Conventions today announced its schedule for the 2007 and 2008 Wizard World conventions, the country's foremost touring events for pop culture and comic books. The 2007 Wizard World schedule will mirror that of 2006, which is on pace to become Wizard's most successful convention year yet, with record attendance in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Chicago.
To better serve the needs of exhibitors and fans, Wizard is altering the 2008 Wizard World tour to reflect a more condensed focus on Spring and Summer months. This new condensed schedule will allow Wizard World fans, exhibitors and retailers to visit all of the year's important pop culture events, and will position Wizard World to deliver more exclusives, special guests and surprises to its fans.
"The Wizard World 2008 schedule will create a rapid-fire succession of the industry's best events from coast to coast, right in the middle of the year," said Rob Felton, Vice President and Associate Publisher. "Our exhibitors told us that they want to give Wizard World their full and undivided attention to create the best experience for our fans, and this schedule will allow for just that."
The full 2007 and 2008 schedules are as follows:
Wizard World Los Angeles: March 16-18, 2007
