Wizard Entertainment Inc has added four events to its 2019 Wizard World convention schedule, as well as dropping one.
Dates were added for Los Angeles, Tulsa, Ok, Pittsburg, PA, and Oakland, CA. The planned event for Boise, Idaho in July was cancelled. This brings the current Wizard World calendar to 15 events for 2019.
Wizard Entertainment recently posted a loss for 2018 (see “ Wizard Lost $2.7 Million in 2018”) and announced it planned 13 live events in 2019, the same as 2018. Apparently the company is more hopeful, given the 15 show plan.
The 2019 Schedule includes one new market (Oakland), and three returns. Recently announced shows are marked with a “*.”
