Information on Otakon 1999

Otakon


July 2-4, 1999
Baltimore Convention Center

Organized by Otakorp, Inc.

Information:
The time has come for last OTAKON of the '90s and we are pulling out all the stops. The anime beast of the east has moved to a full-fledged convention center and we've taken two hotels hostage. It's been six years since the first OTAKON and we're still having fun, doing everything we can to otakunize the world. We are looking to gather thousands of otaku to enjoy our 6 video theaters, a 2000 seat main event room, artists alley, a new second workshop track, and one of the largest dealers' rooms you can find (size does matter). If it's related to anime, we're into it and we're going to do it at OTAKON 1999. So sit down, strap in, and hang on, the fireworks are about to start.

Attendance:
4,500 warm bodies (estimated)
10,000 turnstile attendance count (estimated)
