It's not at all unusual for more than one con to run at a time. I remember at ALA last year we also had a, like, convention for umpire's o_0. If these ARE running at the same time- and it looks like they are- then they'll probably be kept separate, on different levels and etc.

Though it'd be very amusing if young children got lost and wandered into Glamour Con *giggles*.

I REALLY don't think they'll cancel or anything though.

That said, err, I'm just guessing here. *Shrugs*

It happens. Even big cons like Anime Expo have had other conventions or events running at the same time. A few years back there was a beauty pageant going on at one of the AX hotels, on a separate floor from where the AX events were. :)

I'm sure PMX staff was aware when they signed the contract, or were made aware when they signed up. Either way, if it was going to be that big of a problem they probably wouldn't have agreed. Everything should be fine.

GlamourCon 45
November 8-9 2008
Hilton Los Angeles AirPort

Take a look at the hotel's website, under the "Groups & Meetings" section. This link here --
http://www.hilton.com/en/hi/hotels/meeting_space.jhtml?ctyhocn=LAXAHHH
shows that there are function rooms (ballrooms, places you could put a dealers room or a panel, etc.) on the Lower Lobby, the Lobby Level, and the 2nd Floor. (I don't count the 3rd Floor, that's just where the pool deck is.)

So another convention could easily be using LL, with PMX using L and 2, and there wouldn't be any direct conflict. The Plaza Ballroom on LL can be split into 4 pieces -- they could use Plaza A-B-C for Dealers, and Plaza D for their extra-cost photography seminars.

This is actually an important technique for any convention-runner hotel negotiator to remember, by the way. If you don't actually need ALL the space in the hotel, don't ask for it -- and then the hotel might give you a better price on the space because they can make some more money from another group.

(i changed the title of this thread, btw)

Since the chances of me are getting better to attend PMX this year, I wanted to give a little caution to those also going this year in-regards to the other convention which is taking place the same weekend at the same hotel as PMX..

GlamourCon is an adult-oriented (18+) con, with the main guests there being female-models and/or porn-stars. I've never been to one of these shows before, but I imagine it to be pretty wild, with the majority of convention attendees being male.

That con goes only until 6:00pm on Saturday, and 5:00pm on sunday, so those GC-attendees may be wandering around the hotel after their con closes for the day. PMX may have evening events, and if there's an evening cosplay gathering that's happening in the Hilton lobby, anyone from both cons can go up and take pictures or ask individual cosplayers for pictures. Not that there's anything wrong, but..

To those female cosplayers and PMX attendees, please be aware of those around you and watch out for any suspicious people. Have friends with you if-possible and if any problems should occur, contact the Hilton staff/security or a PMX-staffer and report any such problems. If you thought Comic-Con had shady/creepy people, this is worse.. :untrust:

I'm not trying to make people nervous, but just to give a heads-up to everyone to be ready.

Glamour con is an adult/porno con?! :eek::eek:

Is it really a good idea to share a porno con with an anime con at the Airport Hilton hotel on the very same day? It's a whole different matter if the con is sharing a trade show, car show or business meeting. But it does matter when the con is sharing the same hotel on the same time/ day with a adult/porno con. This may pose a problem for some of the cosplayers who are underaged and the families who are planning to go there. Some of the attendees at a porno/adult show are going to be interested in one thing and one thing only. (If you know what I mean.) Anime, manga, or Japanese culture are going to be the last thing on their mind.

Maybe PMX should reconsider changing the dates? The Thanksgiving holiday weekend would be good and it's only a few weeks away from the current schedule. ( I know that it's probadly unlikely that this will happen, but it just doesn't sound like a good idea to share an anime con with a adult/porno con at the same hotel & day/time.)

The Hilton is a big hotel, and like people said earlier in the thread, it's not uncommon to have multiple conventions booked on the same weekend at the same hotel. Those who have been to AX and other cons have had to deal with Christian conventions taking place in the same area, and I've heard the dreaded-tales of an anime con taking place the same weekend as a soccor-convention (Soccer moms!!)

At this point in time, it's too late for either PMX or GC to change their dates, since they paid for their con-space for those dates, and having it on Thanksgiving weekend would be too chaotic and attendance may be less due to people being with their families and shopping on Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving) So they decided on that date for the con and again, it's too late to change it..

Oh I went to Glamourcon Last year. and yeah. if you wanna buy porn, meet playmates from way back when to now, there you go! i was a model last year hahaha but it was for "so hot studios" which isn't porn nor nude related. we do all types of modeling but meh whatever. it's so much fun! the people are so nice and there are a whole bunch of asian chicks there too! it's not expensive either. hahaha

i'm definately going to both, but i'll be driving down since i live in hollywood. hahaha :) yay anime and porn! hahaha XP


***I mean, if you want them to change their date, it's way too late and you would want to call them along with the hotel. ****

RisuKim: I hope to meet you at either con that weekend. :)

I haven't booked my room yet for the weekend, and am debating about whether to stay down the block at a cheaper hotel (which has free wi-fi), or if you book the room at the GlamourCon rate at $104 a night, you get FREE admission to GC, one per person, and once per day. Check out their website for more info.

Something tells me that crossdressers won't scare this particular group away as much.

But really, they'll be in a different part of the hotel. They'll keep to themselves, and hopefully we'll do the same.
