    I was honestly thinking that they'd already announced the location :lol 

    Anyhow, nobody yet knows where it is going to be. It's usually held at different locations across the US so everyone gets a fair chance to attend. The last couple of years, it's been at Pasadena, Ohio, and Rhode Island. So it could be literally anywhere next year.

    It will be announced well after you would have liked to have booked time off work, plane tickets, etc...

    Yes because 5 months advance notice just isn't enough time to prepare ;) 

    Seriously though start saving NOW. If you know that you want to go next year, start saving now. If in the end you can't go, you'll have money saved, which is never a bad thing.

    As for what to budget:
    $400 for the Primus package
    $200 for convention souvenirs
    $350 for the plane ticket
    $150 per night for the hotel (this assumes you're staying alone)
    $50 for the airport shuttle
    $200 for food.

    Yes most of these are over estimates, but any amount that's over will be money already saved for the dealer's room, food, etc.

    Don't forget to allow about $200 for the dealer room, because no matter what you are looking for (or not looking for) there is always someone with something you'd be interested in.

    I'm sure they said that NYC will never happen because of the costs involved in it.

    This.:lol :thumbdown 

    In all seriousness, I've never understood/had adequately explained to me why Fun Pub can't have all that worked out a year in advance like many other conventions.

    The explanation is the same one given for why they don't have online registration. (i.e. pathetic made up bullshit)

    At the risk of contributing to the tired "Botcon should be near me" movement... the fact it has never been in Central Florida is baffling to me. The Orange County convention center is ten times the size needed for Botcon, literally a hundred hotels and restaurants within walking distance, half a dozen theme parks, plenty of flight/hotel packages to OIA, no sales tax, and a generally lower cost of everything compared to many other regions of the US. Not to mention beautiful beaches an hour in either direction. You can make a whole flipping family vacation out of it.

    Yes but the price for it might be a bit much for the Fun Pub and Hasbro...
