My Boss has already published a vaction plan, except I do not have any dates on it yet.

Could Sony please publish the date for Fan Faire  by OCT of each year for fiscal planning.

Other people are filling in my bosses vaction planner right now.

Need a date for Fan Farie, now.

Thank You

I have been to Fan Farie twice and would like to visit again.

This is another reason I think they should try and work multi-year deals with Hotel/Convention centers and have it on the same weekend every year, so that people that have to have thier vacation in by a certain date can accually be able to put the request in at that time.

I know my Sister in Law has until Dec 31st and for her if it is not in chances are almost nill that she would be able to get it off.

Just voting for Vegas again....it is convenient for me, and you can go as cheap or as big as your budget allows.

Best time was 2008.  Mid August.  No other holidays or anything else going on, so It's a great time to fit This in.  Besides, I"m a teacher that works summer session July 1st to August 11th . . . Summer session is per diem.  If I don't go into work, I don't get paid.  That'd be one HECK of an expensive vacation to pay for flight, hotel, etc. etc. AND lose money for not working . . . Though in 2009 end of June was good . . . fight right in between the end of the school year and the beginning of summer session. 

I'd LOVE to go back for a third time . . . please, make it at a time I CAN go . . . pretty please?  Thanks.

August was a bit too hot for my liking, either June again or maybe mid to end september? More info about upcoming expansions also (yes the info on EQ expansion was very vague also last year).

Any announcement incoming soon?

I know it was about mid march last year, so maybe the same time frame will apply which means we will need to wait one more month or so.  Would just be nice to hear something sooner if possible for those of us who need to plan vacations.

They said in the podcast before the last one they were going to try to announce it this month. Also in The UStream for the Sentinels Fate Launch the other day they said announcement would be real soon.So I figure this coming week or beginning of March we will know.

Fan Faire has been in Vegas, California, New Orleans, and Illinois.  I would like to see it come to New York state.  Maybe, even western New York, i.e. Buffalo.

I think its time to travel to the Northeast part of the country, but still remain somewhat central to the country.

I've been to Fan Faire 4 times, 3 in Vegas and once in New Orleans.

Looks like we are going to have to wait a couple weeks. Looks like it was supposed to be announced with the Podcast they taped yesterday , but approvals not done yet. Looks like they are trying for the announcement with the mid March podcast.

The problem with the North East is there are very few if any hotel/covention centers that can handle an event the size of Fan Faire. Even if they do have one of them they tend to be very expencive relitive to locations with multiple Convention Centers.

Is there any official word on when the date / location will be announced? I know it was said a couple of podcasts back that it would be announced in February, but it obviously got pushed back. I'm just hoping there's was a valid reason for the delay and not something like wanting to coordinate the announcement with the release of a new LoN pack or such.

According to Kiara on the EQ2 boards there where a few minor details that have not been hammered out yet, but we should expect an anouncement soon(tm).

Oppsies, the only thing Kiara said was:

We're hoping for the next couple of weeks!  Which is exciting cause it should give everyone enough lead time to make arrangements!

everything else I said above is, as far as I know second hand knowalage or rumor.
