There is no Exhibit Hall but there will be panels and signings. SAM is all about storytelling, through a series of talks about how to tell a story in various media, including comics, books, gaming, movies, and more. It explores the similarities and differences in telling stories through different media and focuses on the craft of telling a story through creator lectures. 

San Diego Comic-Con is part of the San Diego Comic Convention family of events. SDCC is a nonprofit educational corporation dedicated to creating awareness of, and appreciation for, comics and related popular artforms, primarily through the presentation of conventions and events that celebrate the historic and ongoing contribution of comics to art and culture.
