Who are on ACen's Guests list? I don't mean comfirmed guests or anything, just guests that we might or might not see depending on whether or not they can make it.

The guests on the list of people we look into bring to Acen is made up by the choices of the fans.

You tell us who you want to see, and let us know who some of the hottest new guests are to have. Then our GR department works to see what they can do with the list form our fans. WE can't always get everyone, and sometimes last second problems happen and they can't make it.

But we listen to who you tell us to invite.

The HOTEL IS NOT SOLD OUT!!!!

We have not even posted our rates yet. So it would be really hard for them to be sold out.

If you called the Hyatt 1800 number then they will tell you that they are sold out because we have blocked all the rooms for Acen.

If you wish to book a room- call the Rosemont Hyatt directly. You must also mention that you are calling for a room for Anime Central- otherwise they will tell you the hotel is sold out.

But as already stated we have not released the room rates for 2008 because they are still being discussed with the hotel. If you book before the rates are released they may change on you from last year(which is what they are currently chargeing people). If the rates change you have to call back the hotel and make sure you still have a room.

So, did you not attend anything at the Hyatt? That's where all of the panels, shows, video rooms, etc. were. We use the most recent maps available from the Hyatt and the convention center -- I don't think they will be any newer for '08. The convention center houses the dealers room, artist alley, and registration for the most part. Last year we also had a tabletop tournament, a car show, and we generally have a signature/autograph area there as well. All of our 24 hour programming takes place at the Hyatt.

If I take the train to O'hare how easy is it to get around. Between hotel and convention center and also how much does transportation cost?

Pretty easy because the Hyatt has a shuttle that runs from O'hare to the Hyatt. Many of the hotels do. Just make sure you get on the right one.

Normal shuttle prices are either free or about $3.00 (ok so the only hotel shuttle I have taken was in Vegas and those are $3.00) But some are free. Check the hotels website to make sure of price.

I just posted this info in another thread but it's worth it to post here as well.

http://www.rosemont.com

That is the city of Rosemont's website. It list a whole bunch of useful info, hotels, food, and driving directions.

Its a good way to find stuff.

i just have a quick question.

this is my first year attending ACen and my group is questioning how much it would be a night for the hotel...(so we can start putting aside money)

may i ask what the rates were last year? and- will they be close to what they were last year for this year?

Well I do have some news...when the block opens, the rate will be $139.00/night, just like last year. Furthermore, you will be able to follow a link from the main website to register directly into the ACen block.

We're making progress, so just hang in there a little longer!

However, the suite rates will be higher (see this post; the rates are the same for the suites this year as last year)

There's your answer.

There is no such thing as a stupid question. However, it is a good idea in general to search for the answer by yourself first. :lol:

1. You can go to the Masquerade simply by arriving at the Grand Ballroom at a reasonable time (at least 45 minutes) before the event happens.

2. I've never been to the J-Pop/J-Rock concerts at ACEN, but I believe you can get tickets to the Halcali concert the same day as the concert (in the morning/early afternoon)

Actually I think I read a little while back that they were going to do tickets again this year so you'd have to get a ticket, but I could be mistaken.

Mmmmm becareful, i think you will have to get tickets for the masquerede too, so going 45 min may not be a good idea, go there EARLY in the day and see when they are giving out tickets for it. You may need to have a ticket to get in due to Fire Codes/ max capicity on seating

You will need to get tickets to attend either the masquerade or the concert. We are still working on who will handle the distribution of said tickets at the con.

Thanks for the correction. In case anyone is wondering, the tickets are free.

I participated in the masquerade last year, so I didn't get to see the whole thing about the tickets. How do these tickets work exactly? Do they just hand them out when people line up, or do they have seating numbers on them or something so that you'd just pick up a ticket at some point in the day and just wander to your spot in line when the time comes? (Sorry if that sounded really confusing. lol) I definitely want to make it to the masquerade, so I want to know what to be ready for.

EDIT: Sorry, one more question!

It's just a forum thing though. I was wondering about the custom avatar thing. I know I have to have "Forum Daimyo" status to be able to do it, though my understanding was that to attain that status, you had to be a member on the forums for at least two years. I've been here for about 3 now but I'm still at the "Forum Sempai" status, and thus don't have the privelage yet. It's not a big deal at all, I was just curious about it. :) I've seen a lot of mixed stuff on the forums, so I haven't seen any consistancy with the status (i.e. post count making a difference, saw some marked as "elite" and others as "daimyo" even though they'd been here for the same time, etc.) Thanks!
