With the 2009 anime convention year wraping up and 2010 cons being talked about I figured I would start a thred for people to post their 2010 plans in one place

For me 2010 will be my last major convention year, after 15+ of traveling to comic, anime and gaming conventions I'm calling it a day. So for 2010 I'm going out with a bang:
Anime Boston April 2-4, 2010 Hynes Convention Center Boston, MA
Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo April 16-18, 2010 McCormick Place Chicago, IL
Tora-Con April 24-25, 2010 Rochester Institute of Technology Rochester, NY (Home Con)
Anime Central May 14-16, 2010 Hyatt Regency O'Hare Rosemont, IL
Comic-Con International July 22-25, 2010 San Diego Convention Center San Diego, CA
Otakon July 30 - August 1, 2010 Baltimore Convention Center Baltimore, MD
Gen Con Indy August 5-8, 2010 Indiana Convention Center Indianapolis, IN
New York Comic Con October 8-10, 2010 Jacob K. Javits Center New York, NY
2008-2009 IRT - Callsign JR

Wow... only if I had more time on my hands
Muhahaha!

My plans are Acen, C2E2 and Youma for 2010. Otakon will be my next choice if it's in the budget.

Looks like you're going to really busy April-May. That is going out with a bang indeed!

It is sucking down every day of annual leave that I have for 2010, thankfully I go up to 18 days per year worth next month. April-May isn't as bad as Jul-Aug do to travel distances.

Maybe Ohayocon, but if I go, I'll probably just crash a friend's house and maybe hit con for a day...

Anime Punch - Columbus, OH - April 2-4 - I love everything about Anime Punch.
ACen - duh...
Fieldcon - Ohio - dates TBA - camping con. Basically otaku + camping in the middle of the woods for a weekend.
Youmacon - Detroit, MI - Halloween - Its close to home and fun to hang out with people.

Likely cutting Matsuri out of my con rotation. Trying to cut cons in general. Getting burned out from when I was doing 10 cons a year, haha.

Honestly the only reason I can afford so many cons is that I go for next to nothing. I staff pretty much all the cons I attend, plus I'm a good staffer so I get my room and badge comped. So really all I'm paying for is gas down and food.

Hit punch and you can help me celebrate turning 35. My goal is to stay on a constant buzz between 3pm Fri thru Sat night.

I'm still thinking about Ohayocon.
Definitely ACEN.
Most likely Youmacon, I had a lot of fun at this year.
Possibly Anime North.
I'm seeing Anime Punch for the first time on this forum, it sounds kind of fun so maybe.
I really want to save up for SanDiego's ComicCon. I have friends out there, they've been wanting me to visit anyway. I can pretend the trip is for them.


I'm going to try to keep them to four a year, need to use some of my vacation for family and such. ;-)

So far the list is:

Pokettokon
Anime Milwaukee (Maybe)
ACen
Gen Con Indy
Youmacon

A couple more might be added on throughout the year but these days I only go to cons if they are cheap and tiny or if I can staff and go pretty much for free.

How is OMGcon? I've seen them advertised at a few of my other cons and have always been curious.. Especially since I have family in the area.

Anyway, right now my plans are -very- fluid. Definitely going to ACen, leaning towards going to Anime STL, and I'm considering Anime Iowa.
