The only thing I think hurts NY (NYC anyway) is cost/congestion...  It's better than LA though, or so I hear, for conventions.

Saskatchewan is where it should be. Very flat & layed out, you can see your home (for miles & miles), population 2 dogs & a chicken & home of the genuine Saskatchewan seal skin bindings.  :-X  Also north & central & a hop, skip & jump for Brent & I.  :P

Sansweet discusses the rumors

We would very much like to continue Celebrations every year somewhere in the world, but we won’t be making any decisions until sometime after Celebration Japan.

Rick would love to see a Celebration happen in Australia so we’ll look to see if that is possible.

We certainly hope to do another Celebration in Europe, and maybe someday we could do Germany. I personally would love to see a Celebration in Berlin.

We are hoping to do a Celebration in the U.S. next year, and we’ll be looking at Midwest locations like Chicago as well as some further east.

Thanks for the info Nathan....   :P


Looks like rumors are aleady popping up...  from the folks at StarWarsActionNews and Rebelscum:

SWAN reports: Celebration V is very likely in 09, with Chicago the frontrunner as the venue.

Sansweet: We are hoping to do a Celebration in the U.S. next year, and we’ll be looking at Midwest locations like Chicago as well as some further east.

Just how many beers have you had so far today?   :D

Well, by now it's four, but at that point I was dead sober so I have no excuse. :P

Looks like I need to leave the "updates" to the professionals.

That's not as fair as it initially sounds since San Diego already gets ComicCon. There really isn't **** out here in the Great Flatlands, except for local cons.

You can just as easily turn it around and say that the middle is equidistant between the people on the coasts. :P

As time goes on there will likely be fewer conventions to "go around" as it were, so I think sticking to the central U.S. is a better option.  It leaves it open for themost people to attend ultimately from both coasts.  If this was the midst of the prequals I think alternating coasts works but eventually these will run out of steam I think.

I'd vote for Chicago, specifically Rosemont as I'm only about 40 minutes from there!!

Does it really matter where the convention is placed when gas will be $7 a gallon then and airfairs only the very rich could afford?
