Status Active Genre Multi-genre Venue Jacob K. Javits Convention Center Location New York City, New York Country United States First held 2006 Organizer Reed Exhibitions, a division of Reed Business Filing status For-profit Attendance 96,000 in 2010 (est.) Official website Official site
The first event was held in 2006 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. Organizers stated the attendance was far more than anticipated (with the convention floor even being shut down and exhibitors and convention goers locked out at one point) and that they were arranging to have sufficient space for the 2007 show.
The second annual show was held February 23–25, 2007. While lines were long, the show did not suffer the same problems of the previous year's outing, as the convention organizer was noticeably better prepared and had more than double the space available.
The New York Comic Con is a for-profit event produced and managed by Reed Exhibitions, a division of Reed Business, and is not affiliated with the long running non-profit San Diego Comic-Con, nor the Big Apple Convention, later known as the Big Apple Comic-Con, which is owned by Wizard World.
