FLORIDA SUPERCON is excited to announce that we will be moving to the MIAMI BEACH CONVENTION CENTER for our 2014 event! That’s right… Supercon is heading to South Beach!!!!!
We’ve experienced enormous growth this year, with over 25,800 unique attendees and as much as we hate to leave the MACC, which has been our home since 2009, it is time to move into a larger facility with more floor space and parking. We would like to thank everyone who has been supportive of the show over the past eight years, and we hope this move will allow us to continue to grow into one of the premiere geek events in the United States.
Florida Supercon 2014 will take place July 3-6, 2014 at The Miami Beach Convention Center. We will be taking up Hall’s C and D (approx. 264,000 sq feet), as well as the Flamingo and Palm Ballrooms (over 41,000 sq. feet) and 23 break out / panel rooms upstairs (approx. 30,000 sq. feet). All told, including hallway function space we will be using almost 400,000 sq. feet of space! This will make us one of the largest comic cons in the country and allow us to bring in more exhibitors, artists, publishers, guests and events.
We will be posting information on hotels, directions, parking and more in the next few weeks. We hope you can take this journey with us, and we promise to put on the best show we possibly can. A sincere thanks to the over 25,800 individuals who came out to Supercon this year. You have made this possible!
One piece of information we can announce… We are beyond thrilled to announce our first guests of honor for 2014. Legendary Comic Book Artists John Romita Sr. and John Romita Jr. together at Florida Supercon for a very special TRIBUTE TO THE ROMITA’S!
