UPDATED: Next year’s WonderCon will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on March 25-27, 2016
Holy cosplay, what a con! Yes, we just got back from a whirlwind weekend at WonderCon, where we spent a few days meeting some of you guys, hosting and attending industry panels, snapping photos in our shared booth with our pals at Geek & Sundry, buying trinkets and prints and all manner of baubles, and of course, appreciating all the wonderful cosplay on display. Now, it looks like we won’t have to leave the lovely City of Angels next year for our annual trip. That’s right, WonderCon will be held in Los Angeles, CA in 2016!
Details and specifics are still to come, but what we DO know is that the convention will be held at the Los Angeles Convention Center March 25-27, 2016. The annual convention has been on the move ever since it left its original location, San Francisco, where it first began in 1987. The show moved to Anaheim in 2012 due to construction on the Moscone Center, but has been in SoCal ever since. Now that the convention is making the hop to Los Angeles, we have to wonder (pun intended): is this the new home for WonderCon? From what we understand, it’s only a one-year contract, so who knows what the future will hold.
We’ll keep you updated as more details become available, but in the meantime, make sure you stay up to date on all our WonderCon 2015 coverage, check out our LIVE WonderCon episode of Nerdist News, and let us know what you think of the move in the comments below!
