I have a question for the Exhibit Hall for 2014, is it going to be bigger? Last year you guys switched sides (Hall F) and it seemed smaller, unless there were just that more people there in 2013. For the first time in 5 years going to ACen there was a line to get in the exhibit hall on saturday and sunday. I liked how you put the registration in a separate hall. Are you guys going to get Hall A back for 2014 and also have the registration separate?
Trying to gather ideas for next cosplay...?!?

I can't find the thread where all this was discussed, but it has been confirmed that we are back in hall A. It should be just like all the previous years.

The reason we were in the other hall is because someone else paid a ton of money to get Hall A. That's what I remember reading anyways... I'll keep looking for the thread where this was all said.

Well both halls (in total) are approximately the same size (or at least contain comparable square feet). Hall F had a bend in it, so it made the hall look smaller, and we were not able to use all of the space we wanted. Hall A will allow us to maximize the space available to us, and it should look bigger at the same time.

The line unfortunately was due to increased traffic through the smaller entrance, but I do agree, I enjoyed the Reg Hall being in a separate Hall. This year, Registration will be in the same hall as everyone else though.

I think having the registration in the same hall adds to the excitement. ;)/>

This! Unless the Reg computers go down again, that was a rough year.
