Live Programming and Events / Adobe and FanimeCon partnership
« on: November 19, 2016, 12:20:59 PM »
Hello all, this is more of a polling question for artists/graphic designers/and photographers. We're working with Adobe to host workshops, panels, and Q&A sessions and would love some feedback.

- Which day is more preferable between Thursday Night and Friday?
- What types of panels, information, or hands on event would you be interested?
- Would photographers be interested in doing a photo walk in Downtown San Jose with a professional photographer from Adobe and then get hands on instruction on post-processing work flow?

Most importantly, would you attend with above 80% certainty? This is important for us to plan room sizes, number of instructors, and technical logistics.

Please comment and discuss, your feedback is important to us in the phase of the development process.

Unstickied. 2017 is up, use that one.


FanimeCon's photography department is still sorting through and uploading all the photos that were taken.

They will be posted to our image hosting accounts and posted on social media.

You must be new around here  ;). Welcome to the forums.

We don't have exact dates but we're working on bringing the system up for 2016. That being said, based on historical data, I wouldn't get my hopes up for an August launch.

We are on Memorial Day weekend every year, kind of handy to be able to plan around :)

Just as an FYI...there aren't that many rooms that are empty and aren't being used in one respect or another. We fill a lot of things...that being said... we're going to try to move things around and see what works better to maximize the space that we DO have as we feel things are being underutilized.

2013 - North of 25k
2014 - North of 27k
2015 - Many more people than 2014 :)

We're still working on the official numbers but we're settings some records. Anecdotal evidence suggests more people this year with the crowds doesn't it?

The form won't be used this year. I'll take on the task of organizing and sending departments individual feedback.

Please structure your feedback so it's easier for me to get the feedback to the proper departments. (No walls of text...bullet points would be great/preferred but not required).

Ideally structured this way:

Bullet Point 1
Bullet Point 2
Bullet Point 3

But if you require more explanation

Summary paragraph 1 on issue 1

Summary paragraph 2 on issue 2

This helps me organize it and that it gets sent to the proper people.


Wow...the gall of some of these people is...amazing. To grab you and tell you he masturbates to your photos is shocking and disturbing.

On the back of every badge, there are phone numbers. If somethings happens to you, report it right away while it is still somewhat memorable in your memory. We do take harassment very seriously! The more you report these incidents, the more we can catch these creeps!


We'll take your feedback into consideration!

*Takes staff hat off* - One of the side effects of having kicked linecon's ass for two years straight now is that attendees have more free time to do other things. It's a blessing and a curse ;).

General Convention Discussion / Re: Your plans for FanimeCon 2016

I have plans on returning back to the con. But I'm NOT paying 450$ For just one night of a hotel. I've made some back up plans by booking a hotel room at the Fairmount and The Saint Claire (soon be known as the Westin hotel)  for the next memorial day weekend because I do want to return and I DON'T want a hotel that's so far away from the convention center. Seriously who would pay that much for 1 night!? I don't know about you but even booking a hotel at Anime Expo is CHEAPER then what you get at Fanime! While I couldn't book the hotel I want at AX through their website. I was easily able to book a hotel room from the hotel's official site. And each night is around 350$ While it's expensive as heck and I REALLY wish I could have gotten a discount this year. It's still worth it because that's much I think AX is worth going too. Booking the Fairmount for Fanime without booking it through Fanime's website costs as much as a night's stay at The Ritz Carlton's in L.A. and quite frankly I admit enjoyed this year's fanime and the convention is going to the right direction that it's winning me over to not switch to a different convention. But really? 450$ A night for a convention like Fanimecon? I don't think so.

And while I booked a hotel at the Westin as well for 260$ a night without fanime discount that's still pushing it. That's the maximum I think anybody should pay really. Speaking of which... has anybody stayed at the Saint Claire before? If so have you experienced anything haunted at your stay there? While I know the Saint Claire is going to turn into a new hotel. I'm scared it might be still haunted even with renovation... it probably explains the price tag during the memorial day weekend...

I have stayed at the St. Claire on two occasions. First occasion, I was upgraded to a Suite and it was a pretty nice one with a fireplace and everything. Second time was a standard 2 bed room. Nothing super fancy. Elevators are quick though...and stairs are not difficult here.

If you don't book within our housing blocks, I'm afraid that the hotel charges what they feel is a fair price for the weekend and unfortunately that means the few rooms we don't take can go for much higher than their normal daily rate.  An example would be the MGM Grand on Fight Weekend (Manny vs. Mayweather) as those rooms were going for thousands a night when they normally would be 100 dollars a night. Hopefully next year you are able to get a room through our housing blocks. Alternative is to get rooms nearby the DoubleTree Hotel. Shuttles run quite often and I saw quite a few people utilize them.

Our last years numbers were roughly 27,000 and we are north of that :).
