The famous east coast otaku convention, Otakon, will be heading west with the event Otakon Vegas. The convention will be held at Planet Hollywood from January 3-5. As of now, online registration is not open, but hotel reservations are available.
The Chairman of Otakon Vegas explains the new event.
“Otakon Vegas is a new event that will allow us to further our mission. We’ve currently hit a limit on what we can do in Baltimore, so we looked to expand instead of to grow only in one location. 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.”
The news was announced last Thursday on Kawaii Kon’s newsletter that Noizo Ito, the character designer behind prominent series such as Haruhi Suzumiya and Shakugan no Shana, will be there as a guest.
The official T-shirts of the convention will be drawn by Ito and can be pre-ordered at the price of $20. There’ll be a limited stock during the convention itself, but at a higher price.
Kawaii Kon will happen at the Hawaii Convention Center at Honolulu from March 15-17.
