J-Fashion Matsuri – It WILL happen!!

Posted by dandycandy on June 20, 2006

A lot has happened over the weekend.  It looks like my con idea can actually happen!

I thought I’d give you a little update on the progress.  My fiance and I found a really good place to have it – the Hyatt Regency Woodfield, right across from the Woodfield Mall in Schaumburg, Illinois.  The one thing my fiance and I were really worried about was location.  I love where ACEN is held, but I hated the fact that there we had to walk miles and miles for food and we were only surrounded by hotels and whatnot.  No more.  If we get our way, we’ll be in a prime area.  Let me outline why:

— We’ll be right across from the mall, which is accessible via the expressway as well as public transportation.

— We’ll be near plenty of restaurants, both in the mall and outside of it, so you don’t have to walk so far.

— There are several grocery stores nearby down the road.  Meijer, Wal-Mart, and Sam’s Club are nearby, as well as other specialty shops.  Further down the road is Mitsuwa, in case you need a pocky/fashion mag fix.

— It’s not as big as the Hyatt ACEN is held it (I didn’t want to have it there anyway), but it’s cozy enough, I think for this type of event.

— Did I mention it’s by the mall?

It looks like if we are lucky, we might be able to have it a year earlier, August 4-5, 2006.  It looks like it’ll be on a saturday and sunday, as this is our first year.  The hotel is excited about us, they’ve never heard about this type of convention, but would love to have us there (I love my hotel liason).  If there are enough people, we’ll definitely go through with it, so spread the word!  Thanks again for your help!
