EXPCon 2010

Alright, like I promised there's photos to be shown. Though here's my log for my entire adventure over the weekend.

It seems on the way there my GPS was perfectly fine. Getting around St. Augustine was perfectly fine too. However getting back was a god damn nightmare. It's about 2 hours getting there. and took almost 6 hours getting back.

But the convention itself was amazing. hotel staff was great, the convention security was amazing (Normally there are numerous problems over the weekends of conventions, but this one went off without a hitch. Or at least nothing that they couldn't keep quiet about)

My hotel room was on the third floor which made it nice, though all but one of the elevators were down for maintenance on Saturday night. So finding that out initially meant waiting almost 15 minutes for an elevator to get to the lobby. (The hotel only has 15 floors.)

All in all, it was better then last year. Much better in attendance too, last year I believe the entire convention had between 1,500 and 2,000 attendees. This year however they had over 4,000 attendees. which was good, and bad. The hotel convention hall simply wasn't large enough and for some panels they even had lines that stretched all the way out to the parking lot. Needless to say next year they're going to have to rent out a venue.

Now then, onto the pictures.

All in all, it was a good convention and will be traveling back next year hopefully to go again.
