Phoenix Comic Fest will only be a one year experience. It was announced this morning at the Phoenix Comic Fest press event that it will be now called Phoenix Fan Fusion.

This is in line with both Minnesota Fan Fusion and Vegas Fan Fusion that Square Egg Entertainment puts on. The dates for Phoenix Fan Fusion will be May 23 – 26, 2019 at the Phoenix Convention Center.

Update: From the Square Egg Entertainment press release:

While we are still focusing on closing 2018, we are already looking forward to 2019. We’ve been saying a lot this year that we hear you and we’re listening. One of the things we’ve heard most is that Phoenix Comic Fest just doesn’t roll off the tongue. We heard you and we’re listening. It doesn’t sound quite right to us either. Therefore in 2019 Phoenix Comic Fest, formerly known as Phoenix Comicon will become Phoenix Fan Fusion. We look forward to another fantastic year and hope to see everyone here to Discover Your Inner Geek next memorial day weekend 2019 for Phoenix Fan Fusion!
