ECCC 2017: March 2-5, 2017
« on: April 04, 2016, 05:17:56 PM »
I was hunting around and found a posting on the Washington State Convention Center Website. looks like ECCC will be earlier next year, but still 4 days.



On a whim, I checked the website for the Seattle Sheraton, and you can book anything you want right now, including rates with no penalty. I was able to get a AAA rate (totally cancelable) on a club room for $299. You could also get a regular room on AAA rate for $278 per night, but for $21, the club lounge access is worth it (we easily eat that much food, plus the convenience is awesome). So if anyone is serious about attending ECCC in 2017, it's worth making a reservation!

Best of all, ECCC will be a month away from WonderCon, so it won't be quite so hectic next year. Of course, who knows when Silicon Valley Comic Con will be, but it should be somewhere in between.

HTH someone!

Great find! It was later than usual this year and will be earlier than usual next year.

Hmm...I’ll wait until the official hotel block comes up. While it would be nice to secure lodging this far ahead of time, the con rates are cheaper by over $100 per night.

True, but this is cancelable, so if you book it now, you can always cancel if you get the hotel block.

Thanks for updating that, Sam! That's the first confirmation I've seen of 2016 attendance. I've updated my FoCC blog post accordingly. ;)

I hope everything is okay for you [member=1]alyssa[/member].

And to this con, yeah, I might go for it. Well before WonderCon and SWCO, thus what were last year's prices for the badges, btw?

It was about $100 for a 4 day badge last year, IIRC. Unless you're desperate for celebrity autographs or whatever exclusive Funko puts out, that's all you need.

We would love to see you, Mario!

Glad everything is going to be okay, Alyssa!

Probably go for that then if I do it -- the $100. Thanks TJ! And yeah, it would be cool to be there and to see all of you again. The flight to Seattle only takes 1h for me, if that. Would be quite something when I do go to Funko's HQ -- no date yet; still waiting -- it be around this time of the month. It would help out with the cost, such as the flying part. We shall see!

Also, thank goodness! Good to hear that things are getting better for you, Alyssa.

Yes, it only takes about 90 minutes for me, direct out of Oakland, to SeaTac. It's a nice, easy flight. I actually prefer to take Alaska, because their price is a little cheaper than Southwest. I'm going to fly out on Wednesday (the day before the con).

Last year there was a Fugitive Toys Funko party during ECCC. If they host that again, I'm sure we'll be setting up a buying group. ;)
