Nerds, take heart: Organizers of the Denver Comic Con have beefed up their offerings after a jam-packed convention last year that — minus a few hiccups — proved what a fertile market the Mile High City has become for all things geeky, sci-fi and fantasy-related.
“We’ve spent thousands of hours planning for entry, hiring security and event staff and training our army of volunteers to help make the fan experience at DCC the best it can be,” said convention director Christina Angel via e-mail. “Operationally, we have the right people in the right positions to orchestrate such a large event. We’ve increased our volunteer base to 860 people [up from 350 last year], and trained them all for specific tasks throughout the con.”
