Comicpalooza was held at George R. Brown convention center this year. The staff was wonderful. In the future, please make sure all escalators have one going up and one going down.

The GR Brown convention center can stage numerous events due to it's vast size. The Hilton and Marriott connect from each end. It is a short walk to Discovery Green and numerous restaurants
