Committed: My 2013 Emerald City Comic Con Awards
10. Biggest Change to Emerald City in 2013 – Doubled in size
While a lot of conventions have been steadily growing, Emerald City took a tremendous leap this year and doubled in size, both in realty and attendees. This impressive growth was adroitly handled by the always affable team, I really cannot say enough good things about the very friendly and helpful people who run Emerald City Comic Con every year. As always the crowd was friendly and generally pretty relaxed, it was still a great atmosphere, just a little more crowded. The sudden change did affect the environment, and this year was the first year that the convention felt just a tiny bit overwhelming, even if it was only in the sense that I couldn’t see all of the people I wanted to and somehow missing socializing with some very good friends. All this means is that I’ll have to try to come back again next year!
