Ikkicon 9 (2015)

Postby Kiriska » Tue Apr 15, 2014 6:27 pm

Ikkicon 9's dates are January 2-4, so they technically don't have a 2014 convention, since Ikkicon 8 was Dec 27-29, 2013. Artist Alley reg is tomorrow. They seem a bit more disorganized than usual this go. Their website still hasn't been updated for the new year and their social media has been largely inactively since December.

Anyone going? I am.

I think I'll wait for now. Their website REALLY needs to be updated. :(

Yeah, I'm kinda miffed it hasn't been, and the dates for next year haven't been announced anywhere very public, which I think hurts publicity since no one can plan for it if they don't know the dates. Ikkicon's AA usually takes a few weeks to sell out though, which is nice since I think it's the only TX con of that size left that doesn't sell out immediately.

I kinda want to go again, not sure if many people in my group are interested though, depends on how many hotel mates I can get.

The full website still hasn't been updating, but the AA contract has been. Notably, the 50% rule is now gone.

Ikki is apparently one of those websites with a... relaxed update schedule; they put up the link to AA and Dealer signups on their Facebook page, but not on the main site. >_< Tables are $100 plus a 99¢ fee, and it looks like it only accepts PayPal as a form of payment. I wish I could say this was a novel form of limiting AA sales, but they're not the first con I've seen do this sort of thing.

Last year's topic is here. My long report of the con last year is here, and there's a pro/con list at the end so you can skip the tl;dr. I always do well and have a good time at Ikkicon. Things always seem a bit disorganized, but I just sent off a long email to them about things that really need improvement and am currently feeling pretty good about their want and ability to improve.

Tables have long been sold out, as well as the waitlist. :(

I'm going.

It seems they've updated their hours to be way longer this year. A little miffed since while I did ask them to extend hours, I gave a lot of suggestions as to specifically which hours, and the ones on the site now are way longer than that. I dunno. I will probably do about the same as usual, regardless of the hours. Depending on how things go, I might decide to bail early so I can hang out with Austin friends since I'm never in Austin otherwise.
