April 24-26th will prove to be a huge weekend in Las Vegas, as Hollywood stars pack the Las Vegas Convention Center for Wizard World Comic Con. The increasingly popular convention will be making it’s first stop in Las Vegas and the city seems to be a perfect fit.  In a town where one can find a plethora of entertainment – from Britney Spears and Elton John to huge sporting events such as the upcoming Mayweather/Pacquiao fight – Vegas is an expert on putting on huge events.  With massive amounts of hotel rooms and an airport with reasonably priced flights from nearly anywhere, Wizard World Comic Con should prove to be a very popular addition.

The three-day event provides fans the opportunity to interact with their favorite stars from all forms of entertainment – TV, Films, Sports Entertainment and much more.  Attendees can sit in on panels, obtain autographs and even have a photo taken with the stars and also have the opportunity to purchase souvenirs from one of the numerous vendors on the premises.
