Florida Supercon Shifts Dates, Makes Way for HeroesCon 2010
In contrast to our other top story today concerning the rivalry and animosity between Wizard and Reed Exhibitions, here is a story of two convention promoters that know how to get along and play nice.
When HeroesCon ran into trouble with scheduling their show at the Charlotte Convention Center, the only dates available to them were the same weekend that the Florida Supercon was scheduled to run in Miami – June 4-6, 2010. Once contacted, however, Florida Supercon Promoter Mike Broder graciously agreed to move his dates to the June 18-20, 2010 weekend to accommodate them.
As HeroesCon Creative Director Dustin Harbin told Robot 6 @ CBR:
I mean seriously, this is comics, right? It is not so small an industry that there isn’t room for everyone who wants a seat at the table.
