  1. Wow that’s pretty big news. I wonder why. It seemed fitting that the biggest Brony convention was held in the largest city in North America. But I’m sure Baltimore will be great too.

    • Cost vs. venue size. The Baltimore convention center is huge (big anime cons like Otakon use it) and the hotel prices should be cheaper than they were in Secaucus.

      • That’s right. We’re actually looking at $125 / night for hotel costs with our group rate. Be sure to keep an eye on our site!
