North Carolina-Heroes Convention-June 30

North Carolina People, Places, and Things-June 30

I am the dad to five adult children. As they were growing up I attempted to remind them they were special and to implore them to learn something new. My goal was to do that daily.

In 2016 my goal is to learn something new daily on the people, places, and things that make North Carolina special. Everyday this year I am doing a post on what I have learned new.

Charlotte has done much for its city by embracing tourism. Much of that tourism comes from conventions including the 2012 Democratic Convention just to mention one.

DNC 2012 - Day 3

CHARLOTTE, NC- SEPTEMBER 6 2012: President Obama speaks at the Democratic National Convention 2012 at Time Warner Cable Arena September 6 2012 in Charlotte.

Hundreds of thousands of convention attendees travel to Charlotte each year. They are greeted by an airport just seven miles from the Charlotte Convention Center, more than 4,500 hotel rooms within walking distance of the Convention Center, and an array of unique dining and nightlife options. Charlotte’s Center City, the convention district, is a walkable and compact area boasting more than 100 restaurants plus cultural venues, museums and a vibrant nightlife scene.


This week I read a blog post on about the Hereos Convention called Hereos Con being in Charlotte, NC.

The post was written by “chasemagnett” who apparently is a mild-mannered finance guy by day and a raving comics fan by night. He has been reading comics for more than half of his life (all 23 years of it). After graduating from the University of Nebraska–Lincoln with degrees in Economics and English, he has continued to research comics while writing articles and reviews online. His favorite superhero is Superman and he’ll accept no other answer.


What I didn’t realize is that there are lots of comic book conventions hosted throughout North America every summer. I guess the one this week in Charlotte is a really big one.
