Anyone going to Tampa MetroCon 2016 later this month?? Will you dress up? If yes say why. If no I guess say why. Thanks!

I'm going all 4 days! I will dress up on Saturday, as Yyoko in a Tomato suit from Yuru Yuri.

I posted this in the Florida Cons thread. Will re-post it here due to the fact it's now a specific thread

Is it just me or does anyone else think Metrocon is going to start failing in the upcoming years compared to Supercon & Megacon?

Metrocon has been going on for 14 years and have roughly 10K attendees.

Supercon has been going on for 10 years and have roughly 51K attendees.

Megacon has been going on for 23 years and have roughly 80K attendee's.

Metrocon can never seem to get many guests in. If they do they aren't very relevant or repeats. Nothing headlining. They dropped the ball this year on several occasions. 1. Moving artist alley into the dealers hall. It's not a terrible idea but it was rather sudden. 2. you can't walk the halls anymore without a pass. Passes cost just as much as supercon or megacon but they offer less for attendees.

They have their self produced shows but if you've seen one you've seen them all. They spend all of their time and effort into the shows rather the con.

Megacon is now in the Tampa Convention Center during the fall so I really wonder how much longer Metrocon can keep up.
