I am thisclose to canceling Kawa Kon forever. I'm having a lot of trouble with hotels this year due to rising costs and problems caused by other cons in St. Louis, BUT I found an excellent hotel downtown. The ballroom is immense. There are enough breakouts. It's all together with a nice little registration area.
It's a great deal, too, the best I can get in this economy.
But my staff is scared of downtown St. Louis. They are threatening not to attend if I move the con there. I don't know what to do. I've looked at EVERY non-downtown hotel in St. Louis, and they either want ridiculous amounts of money or are too small for us.
The con is becoming... not fun. Honestly, I think it may always have been this way. I've been trying all these years to make it fun, saying, "Next year will be the year it will be fun," but it never happens. I might have to stop, even if my husband doesn't like it. Maybe I'll lose him in the process. I don't know.
