SJ 7:Cana (Fairytail)= 100%

Kitara (Avatar the Last Airbender)= 100%
Will the rave be at the hotel?
PyramidHeadGirl+Illusion007=PH7 (Haters Gonna Hate)
I looked up the Hyatt layout and I can't wait for San Japan to be big enough for use to use both the second and fourth floor. San Japan certainly has a lot of room to grow for some time between the two floors at the Hyatt and the H.B Convention Center!
I was looking at it too. Are we getting the full center or will we be blocked off from some areas?

Aladdin (Disney's aladdin.)
how come the convention cant be just in the hyatt like it was in the marriot?
Let me put it in numbers.
The Marriott has about 60k sq feet in function space (technical term for all the meeting rooms used at a hotel, ie Panel Rooms, Dealer Room, etc). The Hyatt has around 75k sq feet, spread over 3 floors, most of it on the 2nd & 4th floor. In order for SJ to run well at its current size, we need at least 120k sq feet to 200k sq feet to handle the anticipated attendance. Otherwise, everything is going to be the same prob we had at SJ4 with being very cramp and all rooms filled up.
The weekend of SJ has usually fallen on is the same time the Cowboys are in town who take up about half of the Hyatt. There is no weekend in August that lets us take over the hotel like we did at the Marriott unless we wanted to put SJ to be getting dangerously close to when school starts which would be devastating. It is the same for every weekend in July too but many did not like it when we picked early July for SJ3 so we want to stick with late July or early August.
We've gotten too big to hold the convention in a hotel. We need to move into a place that allows us to grow and the HBG is perfect for us. We will be able to have a much larger dealer room, Artist Alley, Main Events, etc. over time.
If we stayed in just the Hyatt or Marriott, we would be forced to do the following:
-Cap Attendance, forcing everyone to pre-register and turn away anyone who shows up to register.
-Cap the Dealer Room size
-All panel rooms would be tiny
-Not enough revenue coming in to get in any big guests

So it sounds like we'll be able to stay at the Hyatt/HBG for a few San Japans then? What on earth do you do if we get bigger, lol?
Cosplays in the works:
That one guy from that show and the character from that movie that came out a few years ago.
Even when A-kon moves to the new hotel in 2013, they wouldn't be able to match the room we're looking at. The smallest exhibit hall is 77k, the largest is 125k. The largest room A-kon will have in the hotel is 75k, the next biggest is 45k. Unsure which they'll pick for main events or dealers room.
