So BotCon’s Twitter replied to me today to inform me about how they are working on the “amazing Botcon 2012” event.
Check it out: http://twitter.com/#!/BotCon/status/141892993228611584
Instead of a long series of tweets, I’ll remind the folks at BotCon what I pointed out back in 2010 with this short blog post:
1. BotCon in 2010 was abysmal. The event was a good “trade show,” but an extremely weak convention.
2. BotCon 2011 was set to be a success regardless of the quality of the show. It took place in southern California (with ten million people living in Los Angeles County alone) AND it was the same year of a Transformers movie release. You’d have to actually purposely try to fail at getting folks not to attend a convention with that “perfect storm” in place.
3. BotCon 2012 will be the true test of seeing if they can put on a real show again (that’s assuming that any of the BotCons before 2010 were any better) as long as it’s outside of Los Angeles.
Depending on the location, maybe I will do a follow up story from our bit back in 2010.
