Festivals Extra: Graeme McMillan On Convention Costs
There's an article by Graeme McMillan on publisher convention costs here. I think the other side of this boom in cons is that people are going to start limiting how many they'll attend, just because they have to. There should be some extremely interesting conversations with conventions and talent/publishers over the next 36-48 months. You will not just be able to throw a con and have the exact line-up of people you want falling over themselves to pay to come there and do business; people are already turning down shows that I think a previous generation of comics people would have killed to be able to do in, say, 1997.
