Photo Parade: C2E2 Day One [C2E2]

Day one of C2E2 saw attendees getting their inaugural taste of Reed Exhibitions’ debut Chicago Comics and Entertainment Expo, with visitors filing in starting early Friday morning and continuing through the show’s close.

By most accounts it was a pretty relaxed first day with plenty of natural light filtering through McCormick Place’s rows of windows onto the red-carpeted convention floor. The aesthetic was enhanced by the show’s grid-like setup, which categorized publisher booths, retailer stalls and artist alley tables into clear sections.

Comic fans seemed to have ample of room to move from the main convention floor into panel rooms on the third and fourth floors of the convention center – especially bloggers who shall remain nameless who may or may have not had to jog from presentation to presentation.

Relive a few moments from throughout the first day of C2E2 vicariously via photo after the jump.
