I'm not really a fan of writing up convention reports, but here's some things that I have to say about the convention.
- Reuben Langdon was one of the best guests I've met at a convention. Not only were his panels amazing, every time I saw him, he was interacting with people throughout the convention center. He was genuinely interested in what the fans thought, and he was just an overall really cool guy. If you don't have him back next year, you would be making a huge mistake.
-I think it's time that AFO should change the hotel that they holding the convention at. Everywhere I went, the hotel was crowded. When people had to line up for Special Events, it was in the already small hallway, making it difficult for traffic to go both ways successfully. Also, I can't speak for everyone, but for my group they had a lot of problems with the hotel the entire convention. The manager said that it's a busy weekend, so "they'll have to understand" with the wait of solving the problem, but after several attempts, a conclusion was never found to the problems that they had. How many years has this hotel hosted AFO? I think that they had no excuses to be uprepared for this convention. I think it's time to move on to bigger and better places.
Okay, off the soapbox now. I'll make another post today, with pictures!
