Phoenix Comicon 2016
June 2-5, 2016 (Phoenix Convention Center, Phoenix, Arizona)
Phoenix Comicon crushes its previous attendance record of 77,818 set back in 2014. Unique attendance is estimated to be about 106,096 which is more than a 40% increase over 75,501 who attended the event in 2015. Organizers also reported an amazing daily attendance figure of 216,219 which factors in those people who came out for a single day. The Phoenix Comicon is now among the largest and most popular cons in the U.S. and proves that despite the heat the fans will come.
