Los Angeles’ major pop culture event, LA Comic Con closed the curtain on its largest event ever this past weekend.
“It is always such a delight and privilege for us to welcome the world’s best fans back to LA Comic Con,” said Chris DeMoulin, CEO at Comikaze Entertainment, LA Comic Con’s parent company.
With over 126,600 guests, the attendance grew by 33% from 2021 and 2.6% from 2019, as attendance from last year was impacted by COVID-19 regulations and restrictions.
“We work hard to bring the city of LA the pop culture festival it DESERVES as the dynamic entertainment capital of the world,” DeMoulin said. “Our goal is to bring in guests, vendors and programming which appeal to the widest variety of nerd interests and fandoms, and we all truly appreciate the opportunity to gather again safely in person.”
One of the major advancements for this year’s LA Comic Con included an expansion of the Gaming & Anime section in West Hall, with over 100 new vendors and over 100,000 sq. ft of exhibitors, publishers, game developers, and artists on the shopping floor.
“Seeing so many costumed and enthusiastic fans line up at the entry each day and jump into action the moment the doors open is exactly the kind of energy that drives us to continue creating such immersive experiences for fans, talent, and vendors alike,” DeMoulin said.
The next LA Comic Con will be December 1-3, 2023.
