Looks like I'll be able to attend this con, which makes me happy~

I'll be going as Trainer Red, with a friend as Trainer Blue on Sunday, we were hoping there might be some Rocket Grunts out and about for some fun shoots?

i might need a room mate, i'm just not 100% sure i'm going yet.

if i am, i'll probably volunteer too as it's not really my kind of fandoms so i don't mind missing panels.

Our Earlybird has ended and regular Pre-Registration is now open for $30!

We've also added Mark Meer, the voice actor for Commander Shepard of Mass Effect to our lineup, as well as Linkara from Atop the Fourth Wall, Rantasmo from Needs More Gay, Dan Olson from Folding Ideas, and Mike Bennett aka Phil-Buni.

I'm thinking of going but I would really love to see a panel list. Since I've never been to CB before I have no idea what kind of panel programming there is, and that can make or break a con for me. Yeah, I'm a geek among geeks.

Regarding location changes: Oakville, Burlington, and Hamilton are within a half hour drive of each other. :P Considering that you can keep a con "in Toronto" and still have it fifty kilometres from where it was the year before...

panels depend on what people volunteer for... so it changes DRASTICALLY from year to year...

Well, obviously. I've been on programming committees before, I know you rarely get the same thing twice in a row. But, er... yeah, I guess April is a little early to expect even a first draft list. I'll be patient.

The time can vary depending on where you are in each city. However, the Hamilton Convention Centre and our old location at the Burlington Holiday Inn are only 14 minutes (15.8km) from each other. It's 45 minutes by car from Front and University St. in downtown Toronto to the HCC, so it's pretty close to the heart of Toronto overall, but we don't pretend to be a Toronto con, merely Toronto-accessible.

As for panels, yes, typically we don't post a first-round list until the end of May since we get a lot of panelists signing up and just after at Anime North. Soon enough though!

I know you're not pretending to be a Toronto con. You're a Golden Horseshoe con.

What I mean is, people complain about it being "in a different town" if it moves from Oakville to Hamilton, but don't consider that if it was in Toronto there could be a greater distance between locations that are still technically in the same city.

so a friend of mine asked me to buy her a ticket at Con-G and I did... she never paid me back and now she 'can't afford it', so I emailed reg and they said as long as I pick up the ticket, anyone can have it after that, it doesn't have to be the person I have it reg'd as right now...

So I'm selling the ticket... $25... PM me?! :S I need it gone at the con because I can't afford it, it essentially makes my pass $50 if I don't sell it...

ah. i was wondering what that con was in oakville that i missed and what happened to it. so that was con bravo? I know the number of people rose considerably last year, but NC and AVGN arn't coming this year. Those 2 drew a crowd. I wonder how the numbers will be this year. not saying anything. just curious. loved it last year though. I went for AVGN, but there was so much more there I enjoyed seeing. Without the big distractions I will have more time for other things.

I'm fairly sure more than enough people will turn out for the con in general. Plus, Mark Meer and brentalfloss alone have considerably large fanbases. ^~ And the Nostalgia Critic is indeed coming.

Also, on the numbers game: We went 325-1200-2300 in our three previous years. We've found the correlation with guest appearances is meaningful, but not singularly so. We've had a lot of feedback that speaks more about the events and the customer service/satisfaction provided, so those have all been equally important factors.

Our commitment has been to present unique content, excellent customer services, and an experience that is a blend of rockin' party and informative conference.
