Hey guys...

Will be my first time to ACEN this year and I'm very excited. Haven't a clue what one does at cons...I heard about the raves watched some of the videos and knew I had to come, also I like anime. I was going with a freind of mine but it now looks like it will be just me. Still looking for a room(I know there's a section for this) hopefully I can meet up with some cool people! Will also be bringing my camera(Nikon D7000) and am willing to share all my pictures!! Also I can't wait to rave!

Welcome you~ As for what to do, first thing you should do is go and grab a program guide and go through it and see what catches your eye. Try to make some kind of schedule, but make sure to also give yourself some time to just wander around and see new people.

Welcome to the Acen family...get a map make, some friends, and you should be fine. This is my 4th time going and I still haven't seen everything but this year it will be my first time staying going all 3day with no work to get in the way, who knows I may run into you.

Thanks for the replies, at the moment I'm in a tough spot. I had plans to go with a freind so I bought a plan ticket and an acen badge(both nonrefundable) so bad things took place now he might not be going so as of this moment I am feeling sketchy about the trip...however it's $300 gone if I don't go..anyways like I said before hopefully I find some cool roomies to hang out with. Also if anyone can help me with this situation, pm me, I would be very grateful!!

Oh crap. I would offer but I already have a roommate DX My best beat is to try the roommate section and do some networking. It's still two months and things change so don't give up hope yet!

Hope you have fun regardless of this and welcome :(

Welcome to Acen!! As well as the boards!!

On opening friday...grab a program guide and find an event that looks interesting. I always walk around for a bit personally just to see some cosplays and take pictures, but then it's off to panels, AMV rooms, Episode showings, and the occasional game room appearance. Honestly though....the vendor hall is where it's at, pretty much anything you want is THERE and you can rab some sweet cosplay pictures :thumbup:

Bummer about the room situation, but I'm sure if you keep checking out the appropriate thread, you'll find something.

Checkout the "Roomate Zone" thread to look for shared room openings. PM them if you are interested in said opening.

xDD Welcome to the forums!! I'm sure you'll have no trouble in finding a roommate.. I would think that around this time, the people seeking rooms and roommates should be going up as most of the hotels near the convention center are booked. Although that may sound like bad news... that just means there's more chances for finding people who need roomies!

OwO Or you could be like me my first year, try dozing under a table in the Hyatt Lobby~ Ahahah... Seriously, don't do that.. >3>;;

I was rudely talked at by IRT, when I've sat in the lobby on the second level and closed my eyes for like 5 seconds. I'm like "DUDE seriously? Can't I close my eyes for a minute and take in the experience? I DO have a room." xD

Welcome to the ACEN family!

Seems as though the others have beat me to giving advice, so just follow what they said. (Although give yourself some time to just wander and explore, that's what I did my first year. You run into some pretty cool people that way)
