A friend of mine and some of her friends have planned to go to this. So, I thought I'd tag along. I'm not much for sticking in a pack when at a con, but I'll arrive and leave with one at all times, lol!
Any tips for what to expect? Keep away from at this time? Go check this out when I can?
Would love to here from ya'll about this and see ya there, ja? :P
The convention dates for Ikkicon IV have changed this year. It will be held from January 1 through January 3 instead of the traditional first weekend in February.
When the convention leads approached the Hilton Austin, where the event will be held, they claimed to have penciled in the convention during the first weekend in February. As time neared and the convention leads called to confirm, they were told that the weekend was booked, as were the majority of the weekends in January and February, and we all know that SXSW gets priority in March. So they took the available weekend of January 1-3.
There will be no changing of the weekend as the official announcement has gone out. So let's show some spirit and attend the convention to show the Hilton that we won't be deterred.
