The Los Angeles comic con has had a quite a few name changes. From Comikazie to Stan Lee LA Comic Con, and now…..
Beyond Fest Expo LA.
There was an official press released this morning, addressed to dedicated exhibitors and friends. “Change is hard,” it the PR blast begins, “but as everyone knows, sometimes it’s also very good. With that said, Comikaze Entertainment, Inc. is proud to announce we are now BEYOND FEST EXPO LA.”
It goes on to say that they:
“… still adore our former Generalissimo, Stan Lee, and wish him all the best, however, we’re making some big changes for this year and it only makes sense that our name and brand adjust accordingly. We will still be the convention you know, but also so much more.”
The rest of the announcement detailed some planned changes, like an increase in artist alley tables, and expansions planned for talent and panels. There were no details included.
Apparently Beyond Fest Expo LA will also be opening the convention floor to attendees from 3:00pm to 9 p.m. on Friday of the 2018 event, which is scheduled to take place October 26th-28th.
