NY Comic Con & NY Anime Fest Share Same Weekend 2010
Posted by OminousCloud in Conventions September 10, 2009 at 06:36:48 PM

Event organisers at Reed Exhibitions have comfirmed that New York Comic Con and New York Anime Festival will share the same date and location next year. The events, which will take place at the Jacob K. Javits Center in Midtown Manhattan on October 8-10, 2010, will feature separate guests and programming schedules, but share a common show floor and one ticket price. This means fans who purchase a ticket will have access to both events.

The 2010 announcement comes two weeks before the event returns to the Javits Center for a third time on September 25-27.

In its four years of existence, New York Comic Con has been mostly held in February, although it moved to April last year. Lance Fensterman, Vice President of the Reed Exhibitions Pop Culture Group, explained that the date move will better accommodate Reed's other major North American pop culture event, Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo. "We are launching the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo (C2E2) in April 2010, and we have moved NYCC to a permanent October date, thus providing a spring and fall balance to these two key events which will remain in place as we move forward. Rather than create a third date for NYAF, it was decided a co-location would be better for anime fans, professionals, exhibitors, and partners."
