All the SDCC stuff is starting to upset me. This would of been the perfect year to go! They seriously need to duplicate this con exactly on the east coast. I’m contemplating Boston CC but I son’t think it will be as awesome
Every year is a perfect year to go to SDCC lol But, too far and too expensive, for me at least.
I get the feeling BCC is growing very, and I mean VERY quickly. They have a huge number of big name guests lined up this year and many if not all the hotels within walking distance of the con are pretty much booked up so that’s something to go on.
The trouble I think with panels and events is their location. They used to be at the Hynes, where Anime Boston has been, but after the Marathon Bombing, BCC moved to the Seaport, which from what I gather, is smaller. The Seaport seems to have a huge floor plan that includes not only dealers but artists and a separate area for autographs and photos with guests, all in one room.
But not including this one room there seems to be only 10 areas for other stuff like panels to be held. TEN, that’s it. And it was over 15k attendance last year.
Hopefully they’ll move back to the Hynes next year not only to space people out, but also so that more panels and events and the like can happen.
BCC is expensive though…Only able to go because I’m selling there.
