  1. Me too! I actually booked at the Renaissance and the Embassy, though I'm more leaning towards the Embassy cuz it's a suite room. If the Residence Inn gets added on Monday I'mma book that as well.
  2. Holy crap.. I just had a mini heart attack, knowing that it'd be live a week from today... and not today. >_>
  3. Yeah all major cons are making exceptions to their "no refund" policies for this year. I've yet to prereg for AnimeNYC 2020, but I will soon.. I wanna give it time to see how things unfold.
  4. Yeah it was being held at the Javits where NYCC and ANYC happen... I'm just hoping that by some MIRACLE AnimeNYC still happens... If it's not cancelled by like September I'm preregging and going even if I have to wear a mask the entire con (of which I hope won't be the case by then). Daniel are you going to ANYC? We could meet up and get lunch or something.
  5. Sure! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah it's all moot in terms of Otakon since it was cancelled today.
  7. Aresef hits the nail on the head here. Different conventions/conferences have different budgets/needs to run their events. AwesomeCon might be able to come up with "replacement" vendors etc where as Otakon may not. I'd also like to echo the points surrounding hotel availability, and peoples' travel plans. Where ever I've worked so far I was able to get time off for the 4-5 days that I need for cons, including travel, so I've been lucky, but other companies might not be able to do that, especially if the employee asks for the same amount of days off TWICE, even if it's months apart. Lastly, I'd
  8. Re: #5: conceptually it's cool and it could work, but it's just not the same to have a "virtual" con. I love cons so much as I do because it's cool to congregate with people of similar interests and just hang out. Anime Boston goers proposed the same idea for AB when/as it was canned, but I was too depressed that weekend to event try it.
  9. All valid points.. For me I have Miku Expo on September 17th up here in Boston, but in November I want to attend AnimeNYC in the fall, of which when I hope it's totally cleared up. I guess we'll have to see what Otakorp decides...
  10. I guess we'll wait and see what Otakorp says and decides... we still have a little over 3 months to go. Things can change drastically (yes either way) by then. I'm not giving up hope just yet.
  11. Yeah that sucks for those that wanted to go... I didn't want to, but it still sucks.
  12. E3 (Electronics Entertainment Expo) was cancelled and that's in June....
  13. Yup. So many butthurt people on FaceBook when the announcement dropped.. Good lord.
  14. Yup.. I saw it going down. People got so butthurt.. it was ridiculous.
  15. I can do better: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ChCKFvR7hF_eh3BWdquxavLO_BThhUHvTvoEGdPw6bY/edit
  16. Yeah I'm an AB regular and I'm trying to not be too sad.
  17. I'm sorry to learn that, but yeah let's talk about Miku (Expo) related stuff at least since that's been postponed.
  18. Okay sure... those with compromised immune systems or are older etc, but let's please not turn this into a debate on the virus...
  19. Yeah the BCC is great. I really hope that ==IF== they actually tear it down and redo it it can accommodate AT LEAST 100,000 people like how the WEWCC can in DC. I think I remember reading that AwesomeCon, that takes place at the same con center Otakon is at now had something like 80,000 attendees and it wasn't super crowded.. The BCC needs to be rebuilt to support that. I'd love for Otakon to go back to Baltimore, but I don't think that'll happen any time soon, sad to say. I think we were close to 30k attendees in 2019, and I bet this year it'll soar to 35k+. Back in 2013 the BCC was barely ab
