There was a really good turnout of about twenty-five staff members for our Comic Fest 2012 wrap-up meeting at the Ontell’s house in Tierrasanta. Department heads talked about how successful the con was in their specific areas and the Fest’s organizer, Mike Towry, commented on the Fest’s success as a whole. He also officially announced the dates for next year’s Fest to be held once again at the Town & Country Resort on October 4-6.
As successful as our Fest was, there were many lessons learned and they will all be implemented or solved for the next one. I have no doubt that next year’s Fest will far outshine this year’s. There are so many new ideas, and old ones made better. It will be even more exciting and impressive with terrific special guests, more programming, added live entertainment, cosplay, costuming classes and a masquerade ball. Artist Alley and the Art Exhibit will also be returning and a newly themed hangout/musical/presentation/deli area will be replacing the incredibly successful Café Frankenstein.
Enthusiasm is already running very high.
