Fandom conventions aren’t just gatherings for “geek culture,” they’re big business. According to an Eventbrite study, the industry is currently worth $4 billion.
The standard-bearer of these events is Comic-Con. In 2017, more than 135,000 people and north of 725 exhibitors attended the San Diego show, while a record 200,000 tickets were sold to the New York festival. These numbers point to an industry that will only continue to grow in popularity, profitability and participation.
