  1. Hotels 2018?

  2. Well, NYCC has come and gone. I had a really good time. Bumped into at least 2 Otakon people, and Katsucon did have a table there again this year. So did Crunchyroll, FUNImation, and Viz Media (all had big booths and had panels as well). Next con: Anime NYC!
  3. Hotels

    I normally drive to Otakon, but this time I took Megabus since I wasn't sure how's the parking situation was over there. I probably take the bus again or the train via Amtrak next year.
  4. Suggestion: bring back daily passes

    I understand what you're saying. But in their defense, there was a time when badges were available up to the days of the event. But like you said, once the show became "super-desirable" to attend, scalpers were buying off these badges in bunches and then sell them off at ebay, stubhub, ect with high mark-up and there were enough people who were desperate enough to pay those prices (someone has already offered me $300 for my Saturday badge). Once they started the "Fan verification" thing, it curbed the rampant scalping somewhat, but still there are many people who still wants to attend and they can only sell so many badges. Anyway, I've already went way off-topic, so I will end it, here.
  5. Suggestion: bring back daily passes

    I'm curious, what makes NYCC so "unfriendly to attendees"? Also, one of the reasons why badges didn't sold just as fast because it's making it harder for scalpers to grab them by the bunch.
  6. Hotels

    I'm beginning to feel that the Renaissance is going to be what the "Day's Inn" was when Otakon was in Baltimore. In other words, it's going to be the second most wanted hotel to stay in compared to the Marriott.
  7. Hi all! Like the subject says, there's going to be an anime con in New York City this coming November called Anime NYC at the Jacob Javits Center. I'm attending. Anyone else here heard of it and also plan to attend as well?
  8. Hotels

    Maybe you thinking that some hotels would actually overbook for certain dates, which tends to happen. I think if you book a room using web sites like Hotel.com, Priceline, and other legitimate hotel room brokers (if that's the right term for them), and paid in advance for said room, you're set. Otherwise, I think it would still be a "first come, first served" basis.
  9. Suggestion: bring back daily passes

    It's kind of funny that New York Comic Con just did away with multi-day badges this year and now sell only daily badges. Of course they have their own reasons.
  10. Hey! I live in Chelsea, too. Small world. Anyway, I'm going to Anime NYC as well. May start a thread about it later on. Also, NYCC do have some anime industry panels going on, too.
  11. Hi All! I just received my New York Comic Con badges over the mail the other day. Time to activate them. Anyway, hope to see some of you there next month.
  12. Hotels

    Unless Otakon already negotiated for a set number of rooms beforehand, you can't assume. Also, even if they did, why should any hotel give Otakon a discount rate if they have no incentive to do so? I mean, if they see that people are willing to pay standard rate for a room no matter what,
  13. Hotels

    Sigh. So people are already jumping the gun and not give Otakon a chance to negotiate with the hotels for a lower rate. So much for patience.
  14. Out of all the stupid things you can do at Otakon...

    I guess you didn't read what I said carefully enough. Look at how much space Registration takes for itself? The problem is that the registration area is already too deep inside the convention center, making it harder for staff to watch out for people who will completely bypass the booths and just blend in with the crowd. Registration will be part of that "Common Area". It would be a dedicated area where both Staff and Center Security can both monitor and do crowd control at the same time. People who already have badges has no business being there unless they need to meet up with a friend or relative. Otherwise, NO LOITERING!
  15. Otakon 2017 panel feedback

    I seen that in movie theaters. I should have been more specific, When my brother and I would be on line for a panel or screening, the staff would let us in first and find a spot where it be good for us and the least disruptive for everyone else. Usually, it would be right on front for a regular panel, or a row or 2 behind the projector on the aisle area. We usually be the last to leave the room.
