Mom, daughter duo turn comic book convention into multi-million dollar, int'l success
MegaCon 2015 set for April 10-12 at Orange County Convention Center
ORLANDO, Fla. – Fans of fantasy will pack the Orange County Convention Center for MegaCon on Friday.
Local 6 anchor Matt Austin met up with the dynamic duo behind the convention; Beth Widera and her daughter Christine Alger.
Widera bought the convention in 1999 by mortgaging her house and taking loans from family. In their first year they attracted only 5 thousand people.
Widera expects that number to grow to more than 100,000.
