Wow, they added Kiefer to a con that already has Bruce Campbell, Robert Englund and the It kids - I'm not going as of now, but I kinda hope they don't book anybody to get me there, since this con has "fire marshall line issues" written all over it now. Good problem to have to deal with if you're a promoter, but I hope they're prepared for it.

Oh no, I was thinking of going to this. This isn't another Rhode Island CC situation in the making is it ? It can't be that chaotic I hope?!?! Any vets out there that can give me any tips ?

It's normally a very well-organized show, but this is a brand new venue for them and they have at LEAST three guests (Kiefer, Englund, Campbell) that will have insane lines all day long, so this is kinda uncharted water for everybody. Don't know who you need, but if your people will be there on Friday, that will cut down somewhat on the chaos if you go then instead of Saturday. If you're 100% going, you also might want to pre-buy your tickets to avoid sellouts. And if you are going on Saturday, I would recommend getting there when the doors open, to guard against the possibility of a fire marshall closing the doors later in the day.

From what everybody's saying, this new hotel is significantly bigger than their previous one, so hopefully it can handle the volume. Time will tell.
