What did you tell the hotel when proposing your new con (a con that hasn't been held anywhere else before)? Gathering ideas~

Do they have any other fan cons held there? When Anime Boston was first held, it helped that there was already a sci-fi con at the hotel so that we could say, "We're like that, but we average younger people and more costumes."

Otherwise, maybe they've heard of San Diego Comic Con or Star Trek conventions...

A quick google search tells me no, this venue hasn't held one before, but I understand where you're leading me to. Thanks!

Be up front and honest about the style of the event, but also make a good case about all the potential revenue your event will generate. Just make sure you don't get stuck with a bill that's too high, especially if your event is new. (Definitely be aware of things like attrition clauses)
Keep your aims reasonable when making a new contract with a hotel.
