Gaslamp Businesses Get Big Boost from Comic-Con Visitors

Posted: Updated:
With one of the biggest conventions of the year now over, Gaslamp businesses are tallying up the revenue generated by the estimated 126,000 people who came to San Diego for Comic-Con.

The five-day convention drew thousands of people to hotels, restaurants, bars and stores. Some experts estimate visitors spent tens of millions of dollars while in San Diego.

Convention center officials said this year may have been the biggest they've seen.

Gaslamp businesses are worried that Comic-Con will leave San Diego when its contract expires in 2012.
