Talkin’ Comic-Con: A Cup O’ Tea with An Englishman In San Diego
s05e41 (10th June 2018)
“…there’s no place like home! There’s no place like home!”
The feeling of facing the massive footprint that is the San Diego Convention Centre ahead of Comic-Con, especially if it’s been a full year, is a breathtaking experience – you really do feel like you’re back where you belong! But even it’s most ardent fans will admit it’s needed a spruce-up and spring clean for a number of years. Well, that’s exactly what this incredible building has received over that past year in our absence… And I think we’re going to be shocked at how much it’s improved.
San Diego Convention Center Committee Chairman Gil Cabrera joins us to talk about what attendees are going to expect from their Comic-Con home in 2018, from incredible cosmetic changes to huge fundamental alterations which is going to drastically improve the attendee experience. We’ll also get into the relationship that Convention Centre has with the city and the Comic-Con International organisations, as well as the ever-present conversation about a future expansion to the facility.
That, all of the weeks SDCC news and exclusives updates and it’s going to be an amazing show Take part in the conversation, we hope you can join us live!
