After 18 years Vidcon has changed its name to SouthernMediaCon. We felt we needed a new name that better described who we were.

So, same con, on the same body of water, different name.

Our new community here on dreamwidth is [community profile] southernmediacon. This community will be left up for a little while to direct people over to the new comm and then it will close.

The wrong price was initially listed on the website but has been corrected to $95 per night. If the hotel tries to charge you $99 per night or tells you that there are no double rooms left (there are!), please contact us as problems making reservations have been reported. Parking and internet for the rooms are free this year. There may be a fee for parking listed on your reservation confirmation but this will be removed by the hotel.

Also, it seems that business has come back for the hotel and they are expecting several cons, unions, and dances that weekend. The room allocation was cut back for this year so everyone should probably get their room soon. If we run out of rooms early, we can add more. If we wait too late....

The phone number for room reservations is 727-894-5000

The panel rooms and con suite are moving. )
