Last year if you stayed at the hotel you were a con supporter with special access to the supporter room and their own signing session with the guests, is that going to be happening again this year?

Great!! Hopefully it all works out well, it's a great program and more cons should adopt this practice

The program has actually lost it's use to us. The reason it was introduced is that we wanted to encourage people to stay in the Convention Hotel since we have to fill a certain number of rooms. But we've grown so large that's not an issue anymore. We only continue it as a thank-you to our attendees at this point.

It's a great program and I hope you'd continue it, it's the only reason we stay at the hotel, otherwise we'd stay with family in the area

As a local, this is the first time in five years to stay at the hotel and utilize the Kon Supporter program. For me, if this program stays, I will stay at the hotel again. We utilized the perks of the Kon suite and early admission to the dealer room.

I was sad to hear that Naka Kon has this program on the chopping block, I would hope it's not just to shave off a few bucks from the bottom line. We love what you do for the fans and the attendees by bringing it all together and putting it all together for us. You set it up and for the weekend we give it all back to you(I hope you enjoy having us I mean), and having something to give back to us on the event weekend goes further than you can imagine. Just want you to know this program is great, my wife and I attend at least 4 cons a year here in the Midwest and there is no other program like this, which helps set you apart from the other. I just hope for the continuation of a great program that will keep people coming back to it.

This program is not "on the chopping block". As I stated above:

Key word there is continue.

I guess I was misinformed by staff at the con about all the perks of the program going away in the future, I have nothing but compliments about this program and am just trying to help it continue for future cons
