Nebraska Convention

Postby Baethan » Mon Oct 07, 2013 6:35 am

Question, who is going to the convention beginning of November in Omaha? And is there anything in particular to look for, or avoid?

Hi there Baethan; welcome to the boards! I'm guessing you're talking about Nebraskon? It's a nice solid convention; it's within that idea size that's clearly not small nor has it passed that point where it's a frenetic maelstrom. Dunno how else to put it other than they have a good crowd there; nice people with good energy. I'm a little on the fence about going since I don't actually know a lot of people there. I can't think of anything to outright avoid other than the lines which you can do by preregistering. Will this be your first time there?

I've been to two Anime Nebraskons, though not recently and not at the venue they're using now.

The cons I attended were on the U of Nebraska campus in Lincoln. They were energetic and well-executed, and the con com did a good job of recovering when the campus started creating difficulties. So I'd like to go back some time, but it won't be this year.

Yeah, it'll be my first time there. Up until a couple of years ago, I was a self-taught otaku. Then I found out about the conventions, started going to a few, and have been thoroughly hooked. I decided this year to go to another con, looked for a local one, and came up with NebraskaKon. I've already pre-registered, gotten a hotel room at the con, and am looking forward to it.

Nebraskon is one of the best cons I've attended. It's the perfect size attendance for the space.

Anime Iowa has been pretty solid in the past, too. I don't know anything about the St. Louis events or the new Arkansas con.
