Wizard World has announced its 2017 schedule of 16 events, down from 19 in 2016 and 24 in 2015, and matching its 2014 level. 

The 2017 schedule brings back Nashville, where Wizard World held an event in 2015 but not in 2016, and adds Oklahoma City, Orlando, and Albequerque.  The company held events in Las Vegas, Richmond, and Tulsa in 2016 and those cities are off the 2017 list.

With a new CEO at the helm (see “Wizard World Brings in New CEO”), the company appears to be turning around (see “Wizard World Turns Profit in First Quarter”) after a rough 2015 in which it lost $4.3 million on its biggest con schedule ever.  It showed a profit again in its second quarter; net income was $325,749.
