With 2011 over... 2012 is on the way!

Thank you so much to everyone that attended and had a good time! We know there were lots of issues with the hotel, and we are pursuing levels of action to deal with them and we need your help to ensure no one has to deal with any of this in the future. So if you have ANY grievances about the HOTEL and their treatment of you or the con, PLEASE fill out this FORM to help us build up detailed list of all the issues we have had to deal with.

Next... with 2012 on the way, we are would like YOU to give us feedback via this FORM on what we could make better and what you would like to see via panels, workshops and events. Please remember, AAD is only doing ONE masquerade ball next year so the attendees will have more time to explore the Big Easy.

In September I'll be going to see our 2013 property to work with the hotel to make sure nothing like this happens again. We are REALLY REALLY sorry about all the issues people had to endure on the hotels part, and we, meaning myself and all the staff are sorry that a lot of the programming got shifted to and fro. Luckily we dont have that problem next year as we have all the rooms available for the convention and are the ONLY EVENT in the hotel for the duration of the convention.

Truth is, no con is without its share of issues and problems. Nothing ever runs smoothly, no matter how much both sides think they are on the same page. I can only thank my amazing staff this year for making sure things worked the best they could. Thank you all again for helping to make this year a success, and I hope that we will see you in NOLA!
