We wrote a little about the tradeoffs that came from supersizing XOXO last year, and why we’re back to our previous size and venue this year. https://explore.xoxofest.com/blog/2019-05-07-announcing-xoxo-2019
As someone who does comics fests I have really observed that there is a certain size where the Big Companies come in and buy huge booths with prominent placement, selling tons of cheap licensed stuff.This sucks a lot of the money and energy out of the room for the indy people. I'm glad to see someone pulling back on growth for growth's sake.
