What cons should we make a part of the whistle-stop tour?

Youmacon again :D When we did it there we had a lot of new people learning about ACen and coming! Plus it's on Halloween again this year and with ACen the 13th we could possibly do something cool.

I know that it would be a bit of a long trip for ACEN but, out east Anime Central is either unknown or has a very bad reputation. So I would like to see a eastern swing either at New York Anime Festival in September September 25-27, 2009 or Anime Boston April 2-4, 2010.

Talk to me about this. That and Iowa are both possibilities we've talked about extensively. I want to pick your brain about the bad reputation piece, because I think you're right, but that was sort of true when I became a part of ACen, and I don't know where it comes from. What are your thoughts//what have you heard? It's hard as heck to tackle a reputation when you don't know where it came from! I want to fix it, but not sure where to start.

Thanks a bunch for being honest!

If that's indeed true, it's probably a good idea. Seconded.

Weird though... What could we possibly have a bad rep for?

We've been there the last two years. :)
It's safe to say that at the least there will definitely be a table.

I'd like to fourth Reactor it's the only other local anime con. I'd like to get my badge on the road tour pricing. Of course if that price will be posted online again so locals can get a good rate too then it isn't that big of a deal.

I second YoumaCon and I suggest OhayoCon. That is probably a bit close to ACen, but it is worth a shot to suggest. :)

You'd be surprised. Sometimes it takes a few bad experiences and the wrong people to spread rumors. I talked to a gentleman from AB though, he didn't seem to mention anything like that (although maybe he was just being nice?)...

"LineCon" was DEFINITELY one--whenever I hear about ACen, that's a major complaint. I even have a co-worker who missed out on the whole day due to sitting in line.

U should come to SugoiCon. That way I can reg at my home con. ^^ It's over Halloween. I'ld like to road show reg so I can get the lowest rate. Otherwise I'll early bird. I don't want to wind up early birding only to find out later that ur going to a con I'm attending where I could road show.

Not to rain on your parade, but that won't likely happen since YoumaCon is that weekend and they are more than likely going there especially since they have been there before.

If they haven't been to SugoiCon before then all the more reason to go. Spreading out and getting the word out is a good thing. I would actually like to see them hit every midwest con on a rotating basis. Breaking into new markets is how u grow a business.

Ah yeah, good point. Now that I think about it, I do know some people who used to go, but no longer do because of just one bad experience at LineCon.

Is there perhaps someway the more efficient registration process can be advertised?

A con as awesome as Anime Central surely can send somebody to two cons at the same time. :P
