I was thinking about going to WizardWorld but I haven't been able to get any concrete information out of them about exhibitors and stuff. Not having been before, I'd like to know how it compares to San Diego before making travel arrangements.
I have the reverse situation. I've never gone to San Diego but I've been going to WizardWorld every year since it started about four years ago. I can't testify as to which con is better, but I've always enjoyed myself in Chicago, although it seems everything has gotten more expensive each passing year. The panels have been pretty interesting and the guest list has been nice.
The thing that annoys/surprises me is that WizardWorld has always been pretty good about putting the info on their website weeks before the con. Just seems they're more lax than usual in updating the site with relevant info.
Anyway, if you're planning on going you better make your reservations soon or else airfare might start getting up there in terms of price. Unless you get a good deal on Priceline.com.
