Here is some information about the 2005 Fan Faire in Las Vegas..."We are planning to have the Fan Faire June 9th through the 12th at the Hilton in Las Vegas. The contract is still being finalized so this may not be the Final Final date but it is looking good. See you there.Brenlo BixiebopperCommunity Relations Manager"The info is from the EQLive Boards and can be found in this thread...http://eqforums.station.sony.com/eq/board/message?board.id=Fanfaire&message.id=5049#M5049I hope to see people from all the EQ games there...Peace...

<DIV>Thanks for the notice!</DIV>

02-08-2005, 04:23 AM
<DIV>Glad they finally got the thread going!  Fan Faire is a definite experience to live!!</DIV>

02-08-2005, 04:27 AM
<DIV>But how will they adjust to the different server tables? I know some EQ 1 players play 2, but as it stands that is a lot of tables.  the NO Fan Faire didn't have near enough space to seat our servers, I  had a seat at my server table, went to get a drink and was ousted.  I had to go sit in the back of the room.  <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> oh well...life goes on!!</DIV>

02-08-2005, 09:56 AM
<DIV>I hope you post the dates for sure soon.</DIV> <DIV>My work schedule is coming out in the next week to fill in the days we want to work and with it being summer and high demand for vacations,  I need to ask for it off early.</DIV> <DIV>Hurry!!  please <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

02-08-2005, 07:41 PM
<DIV>I hope the dates are moved sooner.    Vegas in June just sounds too hot for my cold blood.   Mid to upper 80s in the middle of the day?   Guess I'll be only enjoying the nite life!</DIV>

02-09-2005, 04:31 AM
Won't be quite the same without GM Vannoth there, but you know, you can't make fun of Brenlo and screw up the sponsors names while the sponsors are sitting in the audience and expect to maintain your position.

02-09-2005, 08:23 AM
Sweetness I would love to go!! I should start looking into some hot pink robes!

02-09-2005, 03:58 PM
<DIV>OOOOOO YEPPIE. I come back, along with the rest of my military buddies from our deployment around that date, but it would be wise to put it off till that next weekend, no one ever seemed to showup when they where early in the month, best to do in the middle, that way they have time in the month to take care of business, then have plenty of time to pick up and finish business at the end of the month after the fun <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  Just my 2 cp's though.</DIV>

02-15-2005, 10:09 PM
<DIV>Im going and im gonna look like my hairy dwarf character.  I just hope I can grow a beard in time...</DIV>

02-19-2005, 05:49 PM
<DIV>Good .... Im coming ><img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />  , Some people I <STRONG><EM><U>NEED</U></EM></STRONG> to meet Face to Face </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>*Cracking Knuckles*</DIV>

02-21-2005, 12:27 PM
<DIV>I was just wonderin is there a age requirement to attend , I've been asked several times and wanted to know... thanks </DIV>

02-21-2005, 04:25 PM
<DIV>So is there gonna be a fan faire in England?</DIV> <DIV>After that ill gotten venture that never happened in France,  you would have a lot more success.......</DIV>

02-24-2005, 07:40 AM
CAn we get an update to confirm this? Hate to buy airline tickets on a whim.

02-24-2005, 06:35 PM
<DIV>Trust me, GM Vannoth made these events worthwhile.  When SoE let him go after the New Orleans Fan Faire...the outcry was heard around the world.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'll be curious to hear about this new one.  If yer gonna go, by all means provide feedback (prolly not on these forums..it'll get deleted).  <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

02-25-2005, 01:41 AM
<DIV>I'm defiantely going to be going.  This will be the first time that I have met any of the community and I'm looking forward to meet you all!</DIV>

02-25-2005, 08:33 PM
Vegas hotels fill up very quickly, when can we expect a concrete date?

03-02-2005, 10:47 PM
<DIV>One of these days maybe they'll get one around here (central ohio)  Indy would be cool, or heck, Columbus has a great convention center <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

03-03-2005, 01:08 AM
They did have it at Chicago and I kicked myself for not going <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />. Well, I couldn't go at the time which really sucked... Let's see:Fan Faire Cost for Las Vega trip: $600+Fan Faire Cost for Chicago trip: $200+

03-03-2005, 08:53 PM
<DIV>Yea, I guess chicago wouldnt be TOO bad, but still would like it to be more eastward :p.  Or heck, head to someplace like Charlotte :p.  I love that area.. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

03-03-2005, 11:24 PM
<DIV>Vegas is only 3 hours from me, w00t!</DIV>

03-04-2005, 07:13 PM
HOw is this different from the EQ Fan Faire?I just saw on teh EQ site that it's going to be in New Orleans in OCt!There is no mention of June in Vegas!!SO...what is it? June in Vegas or Oct in New Orleans?!?!?I need to know so I can start making arrangements to go to Vegas. Where is this info. regarding Vegas??HELP!!!

03-04-2005, 09:47 PM
Here it is March 4th and no news and there are very limited rooms left at the Hilton with no for sure word yet. This is very frustrating.

03-04-2005, 11:41 PM
New Orleans was Oct 2004. They usually don't update the announcement page until just before registration opens.

03-05-2005, 01:25 AM
well that would be ok if the Hilton weren't so far away from everything else. Rooms are up to almost $120 a night and there are not that many left.

03-05-2005, 01:43 AM
From what I understand the distance from many of the hotels is within a reasonble walking distance, either that or you can pay $2 for the bus ride.

03-05-2005, 08:38 PM
Well, "from what you understand constitutes" you having never been there. I just got back from there and while it is a nice hotel it is by itself. The plan to put a convention center right at the hotel makes it an attractive venue and mainly why the two are together, for the ease of customers coming from a convention straight to their rooms. If I am going to a "fun" convention I don't want to be on a bus or walking from my hotel to the convention. There should already be blocks of rooms put off for this convention.

03-05-2005, 09:15 PM
What I understand comes directly from my mother who's beern there twice every year... so you can say it comes from me if you wish because its the facts and what I've researched <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />. They are relatively close together, otherwise pay the $2.

03-07-2005, 11:25 PM
At past fan faires I've attended SOE has reserved a block of rooms in the hotel itself at a convention rate, but those don't get released to be until the official annoucement. From what I've read on the fan faire forum, the dates are still tentative since the contracts still haven't been finalized, but hopefully the official announcement will happen soon so people can book flights and rooms, etc.

03-08-2005, 12:00 AM
They do set a side a block of rooms? That would be nice, especially if I can't find someone to go with <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />.

03-18-2005, 08:19 PM
I am so glad that we are hearing about this fan faire in a timely manner.  <div></div>

I just hope that we hear about it soon enough to get in on the hotel deal or to even find a decently priced hotel nearby the Hilton. <div></div>

03-24-2005, 11:49 PM
<P>In response to the location of the Hilton.  I just stayed at the LV Hilton the first week in March while on business there.  The monorail stops AT the hotel, and will dump you off anyplace on the strip.  Anyplace not on the strip you'd need to cab to no matter where you stayed.</P> <P>As for rooms, they are pricey and I personally would like some info soon so I can maybe book something in conjunction with my guildies.</P>

03-25-2005, 05:05 AM
I don't believe the issue is if there is a monorail or not.  The hotel is out by itself which causes problems if there aren't a large number of rooms blocked off.  The monorail has limited hours and costs each way.  While this isn't a huge cost $3 each way you have to wait on it and pay money.  Most good conventions will make sure they have lots of rooms blocked off and alternative deals at close by places.  We can't even get a confirm date as the price of tickets and airline fuel skyrockets. <div></div>

<DIV>Is there only one fan Faire every year?  </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

03-28-2005, 10:03 AM
EQ1 FF...uggh, wouldn't want to hang out with the EQ1 peeps... EQII baby!  Let's have our own FF!! rarr <div></div>

04-14-2005, 07:42 PM
April 14th and no schedule or anything.  While in some circles the dates have been kind of posted people dont know whether to get in on the 9th, leave on the 12th or 13th, how to plan for going out etc based on EQ things. This just is really pool planning SOE. <div></div>
