Derby City Comic Con 2015 Table Registration Details!
(11/30/14 Pre-Registration Night Update)

It is time for us to officially begin counting down to the 2015 Derby City Comic Con taking place June 20th and 21st at the Kentucky International Convention Center!

Can you believe it is already time for tables to go on sale for next year's comic convention? It is and creator, exhibitor and dealer/vendor spots for our fifth annual convention will begin selling tomorrow (December 1st) at 8:00 AM EST! It's an annual tradition.

This year's table prices...
10' x 10' BOOTH SPACE - $150

Today, we're posting to share table prices in advance of tommorow's reservation opening. As we have indicated to many who have asked, there is a modest ($5) increase this year but for that increase we remain a two day show and we're moving up stairs at the convention center to a much bigger floor space clocking in at 65,000 square feet.

Our goal is to give guests of the show a mix of reasons to pack the show floor BOTH days and give you the very best chance to interact with them. Our ground game is ready (5000 "save the date" postcards are heading to comic stores in Louisville, Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Lexington next week) and we're excited to get the buildup to the show underway. We're going to be EVERYWHERE over the next seven months and as you to prepare for the biggest and best Derby City Comic Con to date!

If the past is any indication, we will sell out the show floor very quickly. In 2013 and 2014, we could have sold twice the spots we had available based on demand. This tells us that, despite the increase in floor space, we will still sell out as we remain one of the best deals in exhibiting within the comic world.

We thank you for your continued support of Louisville's ORIGINAL Comic-Con!

2015 Cavalcade of Comics Date Set!

Returning To The
Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion
9700 Bluegrass Parkway, Louisville, KY

Today we announce the date for Cavalcade of Comics 2015!

June 20th-21st, 2015 - Derby City Comic Con (Year 5)
November 21st, 2015 - Cavalcade of Comics (Year 2)

Following the success of our first Cavalcade of Comics we are thrilled to announce that the event will be returning to the Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion in 2015 on November 21st!

That said, it's now time to fire up the fun as the seven month race to Derby City Comic Con 2015 begins. Two days, a brand new 65,000 square foot show floor at the Kentucky International Convention Center and the biggest and best Derby City Comic Con yet awaits June 20th and 21st!

Thank You, Sincerely, For Making Cavalcade A Success!

To say that we here at Derby City Comic Con were thrilled with the first year of our Cavalcade of Comics would be an understatement! First, we thank each and every guest who visited and enjoyed the day at Ramada Plaza Louisville - Triple Crown Pavilion. The crowd was solid and seemed to sincerely enjoy the event. Next, we want to thank each and every vendor and exhibitor who took part in the show. You took a chance with us and now you can say your were there when this secondary Derby City event started.

Cavalcade of Comics was a bit of an experiment for our company. We here at Derby City wanted to see if a pre-holiday, retailer focused event was something that would make a nice companion to our ever growing June convention. It was pitched as an event that would keep Derby City in the public eye half way between each convention year and give people a chance to shop geek and shop local.

Did the experiment work? Turns out the answer to that was "yes". Not only was the crowd fun to see but they came ready to shop and made our vendors happy. Along the way, local comic creators were able to tell their stories, meet new audiences and also have some fun. This event did exactly what we hoped.

Will it be returning in 2015? Absolutely. Stay tuned...
