I think I have enough information to begin planning this event. I have sent an RFI (request for information) to a few local hotels inquiring about meeting space. Even if we end up with 2,000 people I believe a large hotel's accommodations would be sufficient to host us assuming the price is right and they can meet our network demands.

Awesome. I live in the area, too, so I should be able to attend. Assuming nothing else comes up around then. Is there an exact location in San Jose that you're looking at?

I sent a request to the Marriott in downtown - they have ample space for our target attendance. Should they prove to be too pricey I'll look elsewhere. I've considered San Jose State University but I need to evaluate their facilities first.

If anyone in the Bay Area has any ideas, feel free to pass them on. It doesn't have to be San Jose; it could be anywhere in the Bay Area. I'm trying to stay away from the City as it will likely be more expensive there.

I can easily understand why people who do not live near the San Jose or California area would not want to travel to the convention >.>

Well, I know not everyone will be able to make it. I'm sure a very large percentage of anime fans weren't in the 43,000 attendees of Anime Expo. It's probably safe to say at least half of those guys didn't live in LA, though

Very true.

But the Anime Expo is a large scale convention where it is quite famous in the anime world + interwebz.

MMOGCon on the other hand, is small scaled compared to that; thus, people would not want to pay expensive plane tickets during the most expensive time during the year (summer) just for it.

Being in Texas, Land of the fail, means i probably won't make it, but if things aer gonna go how I hope they will, I just might be able to make it.

Now if only I can get my RO Acolyte costume done, things would be perfect. Because I sure as hell am not gonna cosplay Eir/TO Sheep/TO cat.

Everyone starts out small. I'm not going to cancel my plans because everyone's telling me I can't do it. Things like this just fuel me.

I never said that people won't come...

I'm just saying that we should expect only a handful of people coming to the first one and we should only expect mainly people who live near the area to attend, not people from other states, not to mention countries/continents.

*raises hand* If nothing happens, then I will be able to attend considering I live about 15 minutes away from downtown San Jose (driving anyway). 8D And it sounds like you're using the area where FanimeCon was held. o: Just what it sounds like to me. D8

I actually work for FanimeCon, heh.

I'm not going to use the convention center because the cost just isn't justified by the attendance. The Marriott has yet to respond to my RFI and if they don't think it's important to reply to me then I don't really think it's important to give them our money. There are a few alternate locations I'm eying but I thought that one would have been best suited for our needs.

I might go. I'm moving back to the West Coast before then, so I'll either be in Oregon or Washington, but either way, it'll be alot closer than all the way in Virginia, where I'm living now. I can't make any promises, but I'll definately try to attend. And everyone can see how short I am.

\o\;; I kinda suggest to place the MMOGCon before/after an anime con? If the two events are close to each other, it's more of an incentive for people to make a trip to Cali. MMOGCon is only for three days, right? If you were to put it on a three day weekend, for people who are farther away and plan on attending (I want to come, but I can't make the dates you have at all) then it would be about half a day before the weekend that they need to take a plane. Three days of MMOGCon and then another half day for a plane. =/
1st day -> includes 1/2 day plane
2~4th day -> MMOGCon
5th day -> includes 1/2 day plane home

I'm aware you probably have work or something, but this was just a suggestion. o:

Plus, you might get some people who are attending the anime con to drift over to the MMOGCon. 8D

I agree with Yume. Labor day is also a terrible time because that's right when school starts usually.
