Small incident at Convention Center is resolved -- updated 2/14/07.

There was a minor accident on February 5 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, involving a semi trailer, the 10th St. Tunnel, and excessive gravity. The damage to the Center is being repaired and has been judged by engineers to be "an isolated incident." The building is certified safe and sound, and Anthrocon will be moving in on schedule.

Westin Hotel is sold out!

There are only suites left at the Westin at this time. For information on how to go about reserving a suite at the Westin, please click here. The Westin is keeping a waiting list, although we cannot guarantee when (or if) a room will become available, nor can we guarantee what type it may be. You can learn how to get on the waiting list by visiting our Westin info page. There are still plenty of rooms at the luxurious Omni William Penn.

Dealers! Book your rooms now!

Due to a miscommunication on the part of the chairman (who apologizes profusely), dealer confirmations were inadvertantly delayed. Rest assured that if you have sent in a dealer application prior to January 15, we have table space for you. Go ahead and make your hotel reservations while there is still time!

Suites Available! Omni Available! Westin getting full!

Our room block at the Westin Hotel is now approximately 80% full. We have opened up our room block at the nearby Omni Hotel in anticipation of the rooms at the Westin selling out. Also, suites are now available at both hotels. Suites at the Westin are arranged through Anthrocon; suites at the Omni are arranged directly with the hotel. Further information is available on our hotel page.

Please note: Sometimes the rooms on a single night will sell out before the others. If you use the online registration system and are told that the hotel is full, trying setting your arrival date a day later, or call the hotel directly and inquire.
