Mind you, this is pure speculation at this point

I was just at a summit with some industry bigwigs today and the subject of a local (to the South-Central Pennsylvania region) comic book convention came up. A number of ideas were batted around and one of them was: where would a good location for a comic writer/artist convention be for this area? Just as a matter of curiosity I'm turning the question over to you, the readers. Please vote in this poll:



Thanks!

I'd love to see it in York or Lancaster, but Harrisburg would work, too. (Especially if you have it at that Holiday Inn near the turnpike.)

I think Harrisburg or York would work, but I also think the Holiday Inn off of I83 near the turnpike would be ideal. Even for the fans that are not close, it's very easy to get to.

Farm show complex in Harrisburg. York fair grounds would work too...
Personally, anywhere within 60 miles works for us.
Comic "monkeys" will travel to meet an artist....

the York Expo Center would be a great choice it's centrally located, great parking and facilities, and it's easy to get to. I aways thought it was a great place for cons I used to go to alot of big baseball card shows there.

There are some pretty neat places in Lancaster...even though everyone thinks that it's just the Amish...hah.

Maybe we're all thinking a little too big here. If you get the York Expo Center or Farm Show building, you're not only talking a big cost but would need a hundred exhibitors just to make it worth while. It would be nice, but maybe unrealistic. And if this is for South Central Pennsylvania, I think the Harrisburg area is more centrally located.

I hope you mean Hanover, PA not Hannover, Germany...

I am shocked that the good people of Hanover, PA don't even know how to spell the name of their fair city.

It's important to note that The York Expo Center has several buildings. You can start out with a small building, and, over time, get bigger and bigger without having to jump to a new location.

I liked that Old Main building at the York Expo Center where they hold the Book & Paper Fair. It was big, but TOO big. Plus I know where it is now.

My suggestion for a potential location for a Central PA Comic Conv would be Hershey. Technically it is in Harrisburg, I think, but Hershey has a good convention center, plenty of affordable lodging, plus the additional draw of Hershey Park to bring more people into the area.
