The Indianapolis Convention Center is contracted through Gen Con to run their activities, so I can see that being out unless they find some other venue. I live in Indiana, but NW Indiana, only 30-45 minutes from downtown Chicago. I'd love for it to hit Chi-Town so I don't have to get a hotel (anyone's welcome to pitch a tent in my backyard!), and I think that McCormack Place is a much better location for it than rosemont. I've been to Wizard World Chicago for the past 5 years, and even though they do have a couple other rooms available for activities, I just don't think it's big enough. With McCormack Place, you have their parking, plus overflow on the lot across the street and Soldier Field. It's a couple miles from Michigan Avenue, Grant Park, Navy Pier, beaches, The Shedd Aquarium, and much more. I wouldn't be opposed to Minneapolis, Indy, or maybe even Baltimore. I've never gotten the chance to attend any of the Celebrations (even with 2 being a mere 2 hours away!), so I'm really pining for a Chicago location!
