Well, I found the Events DC Otakon 2018 event listing where they state that Otakon "is the biggest ... celebration of Japanese animation, manga, J-pop, and east Asian culture in the world" also lists wrong dates, Thursday, August 9th to Saturday, August 11th: http://www.dcconvention.com/Events/OTAKON_2018_Otakon_Annual_Convention.aspx

OTAKON 2018 Otakon Annual Convention
WALTER E. WASHINGTON CONVENTION CENTER

08/09/2018 - 08/11/2018        
Otakon is the convention of the otaku generation: by fans, for fans. Otakon is the biggest and best celebration of Japanese animation, manga, J-pop, and east Asian culture in the world.

Hey all! We're aware of the issue with the posted dates and are contacting Events DC to fix it. Thanks for the heads up!

Events DC has been known to dabble in hyperbole. They describe Metro as "a first rate subway system." :rolleyes:http://eventsdc.com/Venues/ConventionCenter/DirectionsAndParking.aspx

P.S. It's been almost a month since the mistake stating, "Otakon is the biggest and best celebration of Japanese animation, manga, J-pop, and east Asian culture in the world" was noted, and it's still on the webpage. At least they updated the dates. While the use of "best" is purely subjective, I do believe Otakon hasn't attained the title of "biggest" in the world (yet). ^_^ http://eventsdc.com/Events/OTAKON_2018_Otakon_Annual_Convention.aspx

Their Otakon page hasn't been corrected yet. They seem reluctant to dial back the hyperbole. ;)
