YIKES. Didn't take long. This year's going to be PACKED...!
Glad I snag a room in the second hotel. Right away. I hope that Fun Publications is prepaired for this show, cause it sounds like it's gonna be jam-packed.
I made reservations at the Westin, but I'm protecting my pocket book with a cheaper backup reservation well out of town.
But with the way it sounds like the crowds are gonna be, it'll be worth the extra cost to have a room there to avoid parking, leaving for lunch, etc.
Good lord. Do rooms normaly go this fast for Botcon? At this rate I had beter make sure I preregister for the con as soon as the forms are released.
That was quick. Turnip I was thinking the same with preregister. I'm going to call in for that Primus package the same day of announcment. This is going to be the BEST Botcon ever.
Got my room there, too. My first Botcon...and it shall be the best because I am there!
Yea, I tried to book at the Biltmore yesterday and found they had no rooms left. I got a room at another hotel. I can always cancel it and rebook if they get another hotel.
Glad I got my room at the first hotel ASAP. nothing I hate more than being in an overflow hotel.
No kidding, I mean I thought last year was packed. But this year's going to be INSANE. I hope the prereg forms are releasd on a weekend, so first thing Monday morning I can fax it and get my special "100 person pin"
And thank god I've paid up my room at the Westin. Looks like I chose the right Con to NOT miss
cripes, hopefully there'll be some hotels left in the city that are free come registration time!
I can't recall a time when they sold out the first hotel, let alone a second. This Botcon is going to be HUGE. Holy cow. I'm with Hiro, I hope they've prepared for the enormity of the attendance for this show, buecause it's shaping up to crush previous records.
yes, they better be ramping up their exclusives run!!
Those "on-the-door" exclusives are going to be a pain to get. I'm going to have to make sure to get there early for them!
Yeah, with two hotels sold out and them looking for a third, this does worry me a little-- I hope enough of the exclusives are produced, not to mention enough room in the panel & dealer rooms, etc...
Wow, this is amazing news. FP is already looking for a third hotel, yet the convention itinerary, guests, and toys have not even been announced yet.
Yeah, this year's show is going to be huge.
I wonder if they are upping the production run of convention figures...
I would guess it's probably a little late in the game for them to be ramping up production numbers, as they likely had to place their order well before now to have everything in place for the con itself. Man, I'm gonna have my credit card on standbye just waiting for the SECOND that registration form shows up.
I'm somewhat fearful since the convention center is expecting an attendence of 2000 people, and we're already looking for our third hotel. With the way people double and triple up in rooms, it's got to be well over 2000 people already planning to attend, let alone by the time we actually get there.
This is going to be huge.
I hope they've got enough of those classics thundercrackers for everyone!
Oops. Looks like I'm camping outside the convention center in a tent.
