I doubt that for her. Usually you want to book a flight early than later, because the price will go up more as you get closer to the dates of the trip.

Sure, you don't want to wait until the last minute but I find that earlier-the-better does not apply when it's too far out. Unless there's a REALLY big event (like SDCC big, not ECCC big) prices on domestic flights usually go up and down until about 4-6 weeks before the event, and this far out is usually too early for a lot of the special pricing to kick in. I generally find the best pricing for ECCC around October or November. Last year I booked in November and though I got a great deal at $118 r/t...but a couple weeks later the price went down to $98!

A major sporting event is not going to raise the prices four days earlier. One day earlier, maybe. I stand by it being too early & I fully expect the prices to drop significantly.

(I just checked SEA to SJC prices on Alaska for the rest of March and April -- all of them are currently that expensive except on Tuesdays.)

So a few friends and I are planning to head up to Seattle for our first ECCC and I was just wondering how does it compare to other cons. I'm still debating whether or not I'd rather do this over Wondercon since they're so close but I sort of want to do something different since I went to Wondercon last year. Is attendance more or less the same and how are the exhibitors at ECCC?

They are about the same size of con, in terms of attendees. In a nutshell, WonderCon is more of a Hollywood presence (not nearly as much as SDCC, but studio-type panels) while ECCC has a bigger Artists' Alley, more cosplay, more gaming, more of a literary presence etc. ECCC is weak on entertainment guests, but strong in most other areas. WonderCon is much stronger for entertainment guests and has studio panels, but is weaker in the other areas.

i would also add that WC is a chill location. ECCC is in downtown Seattle- both are *fab* locations just very different ;)

Hmmm I guess I'll try out ECCC then! I'm starting to get into more of the gaming and literature aspect of cons so I guess it doesn't hurt to try out ECCC. Also I don't frequent Seattle that much so I can also go sightseeing while I'm up there (but also I have a hunch that I might end up doing both cons so we'll see) ^_^

It's definitely easy to sightsee in Seattle, with the convention center being in the middle of downtown.

Wow! Something just came up today that I may be able to head to ECCC for 2019! Perfect, since tickets appear to be going on sale today. I don't need anything equivalent to a MemberID to get tickets, do I? This would be my first time going to a Con outside of SDCC. I'm getting excited. Are there any threads out there for what to expect and/or do as a newbie to ECCC? If no thread exists, any tips/recommendations for me other than the You are not allowed to view links.
