Well this con was possibly the biggest shitshow of the year.

>canceled many guests and their panels
>nobody came. Attendance was maybe slightly more than half of last years.
>dealers/artists got completely screwed over.
>consuite canceled due to budget concerns
>police constantly harassing people
>nearby businesses harassed con-goers
>most staff quit on sunday. They didn't even have a person checking badges to dealer rooms.

These are just some of the issues.

You all ready for 2019?!

it was bad. It was my first time going to anime iowa. My friends said it was awesome last year and man, if it wasn't for the fact that i got to hang out with my friends i would have considered it a totally wasted weekend.

The "rave" was also completely lame, even by midwest standards. I can understand moving to a new location has its hiccups, but the experience this year will probably keep people from coming back next year unless there are serious changes.

So were all these problems because it was a poorly handled convention or just because it was Iowa?

poorly planned, they moved it from an established location that its been at for more than a decade to a new location 200 hundred miles away to the middle of the state this year

I am sorry Iowa. Texas loves you and wishes we could be closer friends.

>con was absolute Trash
>ran a room party
>Had the best AI ever just from all the people I met

Flew down home to see family and go to this trash-tier con, but all the people I partied with made it alright.

Room 645 Hilton represent. I got bitched out by old lady staff telling me I had too many people in my room. Pretended to care and she went away.

no shit, there were like at least 50, and a trash can full of death punch.
