Comic-Con International, commonly known as San Diego Comic-Con, will be held July 9-12, 2015 (with their preview night on July 8). This means that Comic-Con International is exactly one week after Westercon 68 / Conjecture 13 / Conchord 27. We have no official relationship with Comic-Con International (other than shared volunteer staff).
However, there are some arrangements in place to make it easy for individuals to attend both Westercon 68 and Comic-Con International. First and foremost, The Town and Country Resort and Conference Center will honor our room rate through the night of Tuesday, July 7.
We are encouraging regular Comic-Con International guests, dealers, and artists to come into town early and participate in both conventions. If we get commitments from any extra special guests we will be sure to let people know.
Additionally, we will be holding our masquerade on Saturday, July 4. We encourage anyone considering entering the Comic-Con masquerade to also join Westercon 68 and enter into our masquerade. This could be especially valuable for novice stage performers – allowing them to get experience in a smaller venue before hand.
