So my boyfriend and I were looking at going to a convention this summer and we stumbled upon Matsuricon in Columbus, Ohio from August 19th to the 21st. We looked at the guest list and were instantly sold! Its almost to good to be true all the guests that they had listed...

Doug Walker
Kevin Bolk
Brina Palencia
Brittney Karbowski
Micah Solusod
Cherami Leigh
Clarine Harp
Scott Freeman
Ian Sinclair
Sonny Strait
Kyle Hebert
No Need For Bushido
Chris Cason
Eric Stuart
Mindy Timpone
Eric Vale
Kevin McKeever

has anyone gone to this convention or is planning on going? I would love to hear more about this convention, it seems like its pretty small with about 1,500 people in attendance last year (?) But the guest list looks phenomenal, I can't wait to see who else they bring!

I know. I've been waiting for years for a con in the Midwest to get her. But not only her, Eric Stuart is going to be there. I'm so excited! I can't wait.

I wonder if there is anyone on here that has gone to this con?! I just can't believe they have so many guests, awesome guests at that, and they're HOPING to get an attendance of 2500+ which i would think would be easily obtainable with the names they already posted!

I doubt they'll be getting above 2500 people. Last year's attendance was unexpected in every sense of the word and that was about 1500, overshooting their estimation by at least like...300 I think. People on Friday had one day badges for Saturday because we ran out of "Full"s to give. But they are growing and are a solid con with some grand ambitions. I was told that the guest list is pretty much everyone who came last year as well as whoever they go for this year (or so I was told by the conchair).
I'll be there to support them with a Whose Line show and whatever panels my comrades might want to do. This will be the first good con to be at that location so I'm looking forward to seeing how they make use of it.
Whose Line is it Anime? America's favorite tradition since we started saying it is.

I'm definitely coming to this con due primarily to its awesome line of guests that might not occur anytime soon around the Midwest. I got my room reserved already. Just need to get a few friends to come with me, so they I don't go alone. This opportunity is too good to pass up.

I wouldn't call Ohio midwest. It's too far east imo.

I wish I could go! Veronica Taylor and Eric Stuart would fill like almost every childhood dream, minus Dan Green, lol.

But sadly it's too close to Anime Iowa and I've already committed myself to that so.

Thats mostly cause Columbus has nowhere else to go once you hit the 1300 mark on attendance. 2009, we were in the same hotel Matsuri was in last year with 1250 attendees. The hallways were jam packed and we had to put dealer's outside in a tent.

As for Matsuri, I usually go. Think I've been every year since the beginning. Probably going to miss it unfortunately this year due to work though.

Just to let everyone know -- Matsuricon's pre-registration ends Monday, August 1st! If you haven't made your decision on which convention to go on the weekend of August 19th-21st, do it NAO!!! It's only $30 -- after August 1st, it will become $40 at the door! Save some money if you're thinking of coming out to join us!

We also added two MORE guests -- Steve "Warky" Nunez, and Josh Grelle.

It's our biggest guest list yet (over 20 guests) AND our biggest venue yet (the Hyatt Regency Columbus, home to Ohayocon)

More info about Matsuricon can be found on our website at www.matsuricon.org, including our guests, special events, and how to get there!

Being a ten minute drive from my place I just might check it out.
