I may actually go. ^_^ It's be a bit of a trip, but I bet I could bribe my folks into going. My mom loves casinos. Free hotel cost and don't have to drive? Yes please.

I'm glad to see more conventions happening in Vegas since I live only 2 hours away.

I'm not gonna lie. This news only saddened me because I got SO EXCITED that it was a new convention and ON MY BIRTHDAY TOO but I know deep down that I can't go... my sis and I are hoping to have moved by then and probably... won't have the funds to fly to this EPIC new con T__T AWW MAN the hotel is SO CHEAP TOO. I wish the Otakon Baltimore hotels were that cheap...

This is great news for Otakon Bmore for the simple fact that Otakorp will be able to tap into some of the hard to get Guest to come to Vegas and in turn Bmore.

I could see Vegas over the next few years starting to rival some of the larger West Coast Cons and for me that would be great.

Both of Vegas' conventions fall on the exact same weekend as two here in California that my group attends. That's some bad luck. Las Vegas is only about nine hours away, so it would be nice to visit Vegas and go to a convention at the same time. :3

I feel like January is getting a little overloaded on the West Coast now! But if they have good guests/programming, I may end up at this one.

Already booked and have my room full so all i have to do is wait. Never left the east-cost or been on a plane so this will be an awesome way to sink 2 stones at a time.

Ok there are now 3 Cons in Vegas..

AnimegaCon
Otakon Vegas
Anime Vegas

although I have heard no news about Anime Vegas.. are they Taking 2013 off?

With Otakon Vegas a week before ALA & a few other Con's going on around the same time, i HOPE Otakon gets the turn out they are looking for!!!

I Staff ALA, I will be attending Otakon Vegas and see how it is!! I do hope they can get a Good Musical Guest.. if they are looking into one for their first year in Vegas???

Time to start saving up to get a new waterpump and timing belt for my car it's going to be a long 4 hour Drive to Vegas!!

I will 80% go to Otakon Vegas (but) Still Def go to ALA the weekend after! (ALA) is my 1st Con Home and 2nd home away from Home! (I'm Staff for Life!!)

Agreed with (MeilinII) I understand you wanting to Attend Otakon in your home town (very understandable) save on money and everything! I hope you have Fun!! perhaps I will see you there and say Hi!
