Las Vegas Comic Expo 2013: Convention Report

Here's my "photo" report from this September's inaugural Las Vegas Comic Expo held at the Rivera Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

1. The Floor
The convention was held in the distinctly older Riviera casino and the show floor and parking area show it's age. Thankfully the set-up and floor space were done to allow maximum space between booths and tables so there was no back-up that lasted significantly.

Ticketing pick-up took longer than expected and the lack of volunteers and staff did prolong wait and show information. The overall experience though was successful in that you can readily figure out the location and spots of the booths and artists you were looking for since the space isn't enormous and the wait times to meet creators didn't stretch hours like SDCC. The longest wait both Saturday and Sunday was for Jason Scott Campbell who continually had a long line but was significantly faster moving than at other conventions I've seen him at (see the line photos below for JSC).
