Next year it's supposed to be in Pasadena, right? That's close enough I might be able to attend... or at least come up for one day. So I have some questions for those of you who have been to these conventions before:
1. How far in advance would I typically need to register for the convention? How about for the hotel (if I were able to stay longer than a day)?
2. If I could only come up for a day, would it be possible to enter a model in the contest and come on the day of the contest?
As for the host hotel normally booked months ahead of the show. They filled four hotels in Seattle. For next year there are enough other hotels close by should be no problem. As for the model contest voting is on Friday and awards on Saturday with models picked up Saturday afternoon after the Vendor room closes.
