Otakon, one of the top anime conventions on America's east coast, will be going west. New event Otakon Vegas will be held at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 3-5.
Otakon Vegas Convention Chair Victor Albisharat says that, “Otakon Vegas is a new event that will allow us to further our mission. We're nearing the capacity of our home in Baltimore; the next logical step would be to expand. As well, we wanted to create a smaller and more intimate setting where we can try out new things. With that in mind, we're working on some exciting new events and formats that might not lend itself to our larger event in Baltimore.”
Hotel room reservations are now available and event registration will open in the next few months. For more information, keep an eye on our facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/otakonvegas or go to our website at http://www.otakonvegas.com.
