Love Comicon. VERY disappointed by Montreal organizers! Went today, Saturday September 17th, and arrived at 1PM (they opened at 11AM). Paid for parking and gas (on top of the great Montreal traffic - should of took the metro). Guess what?
THEY WERE SOLD OUT!
Spoke to a few people over there. It seems 3 years ago, they welcomed approximately 800 fans. 2 years ago, 3000 fans. Last year 8500. They were EXPECTING (this is the key word) 20,000 people this year !!!!!!
So here we are in the 21st century. You can e-mail, chat, twit, facebook, and whatever else exists to communicate, and yet, with their pre-sale by internet, they could not warn anyone that we could hit our noses on a closed door when we got there!!!
COME ON. I have to give Comicon Montreal organizers a 0 out of 10 for this year's reunion. Really not sure I will go next year. They could have easily seen this coming and let us know on any venue to beware. Worst, they could have offered devoted fans something, anything, when we were on-site. Some entertainment in the entrance, a stand with some Comicon people and certain mascots, a free poster?, a special link to their internet site where they would give unlucky fans access to a special surprise, ANYTHING!!! I was there with my 2 kids and people in costumes did a better job than anyone from Comicon organization to entertain my kids.
Bad organizers! Bad, bad organizers!
Are you disappointed as well????
