posted on by George Phillips
Otakon has shifted dates to July 26th through July 28th instead of August 2nd through August 4th.. Check your travel plans to ensure no problems arise!

Excerpted from the Otakon ML:

They made us an offer we couldn't refuse!

Otakon 2002 is moving! At the request of our facility, the spacious Baltimore Convention Center, we are packing up our bags and moving from the weekend of August 2-3-4 to the weekend before, July 26-27-28. With the entire convention center at our disposal and other big plans for all of this newfound room in the works, we are sure that this move will be worth it.

Otakon 2002 will feature:

- NEW 35mm theater located inside the convention center showing titles over the entire weekend.

- NEW 94,00 sq. ft. dealers room

- 6 anime video theaters

- 1 theater dedicated solely to live action films from all across East Asia.

- The return of Mystery Anime Theater 3000 and the pummeling of yet another (not so) beloved anime title.

- Workshops, Art Show, Cosplay, Video Gaming, Anime Music Video Contest, Modeling Contest, and all the rest that you have come to expect!
