ALA 2019 review time! Was it worth the annual destruction of property?

Better yet, is this the last straw that kicks ALA out of Ontario? Will any convention take ALA after this? Because let's be real, their property destruction list keeps growing and growing.

Regarding about the staff purge, this is what happened the fucking group that destroyed Anime Conji and Anime California took over Anime LA. Basically they spent years networking with various people from various cons to reach to the point where they are well connected. With that power they wanted to run the con their way and to do that they got rid of majority of the staff that are “””problematic””” and left the ones who would not say shit. However they removed to the point that they no longer had the numbers to support the con of this size and thus really relied on volunteers. Here’s the kicker: the perks of what was offered was removed. No more pass on badge, no more hospitable food aside from lunch and working for “””exposure””” it’s total bullshit. Also they wanted to cut cost because it’s too expensive to run a con.

It's still going to reflect on the con since the people were there for that reason. I'm sure there were other damages as well as there usually are at anime cons. If they wanted to get rid of ALA, they now have an excuse to.

It will be interesting to see what comes out in the next few days.

>> No.10078658

this is ALA we're talking about here. They have history of property damage (Radisson lobby, LAX Marriott jacuzzi, broken table at Burbank). Whether it was con-goer or some rando, this is still a bad history on their record and will work against them if they're ever looking for new venue.

I woke up early AF to get in line for the My Hero Escape Room. The line was pretty long but i was at least one of the first 14. With 8 or more per session I would at least get into the second one. But the first 4 people in line filled up the entire sheet. They just wrote in all their friends. I was pissed off. One smelly weeb even held the pen in his hand while he texted friends to see if they wanted a spot while people where in line. There was no staff regulating this bullshit. Needless to say most of the people in line where pissed off at this. I don't think i would come back to this Con. It was ran kinda shitty.

>> No.10078696

The week after the staff recruiting the higher ups decided to get rid majority of the staff because they’re cutting cost and fired a number of division heads for stupid reasons but it was because they wanted their positions. Anyway when December rolled around that’s when they started to plan out the con with the new staff. This con was planned less than a month with majority new staff headed by a group who are known to hijack successful cons and running their way because they think that they’re always right.

Where’s the hospitality room that was a part of ALA for the past 14 years? Where were the people when it came to setup the panels? Where was the badge check outside from the convention center?

This con is a total shit show and was not worth the $55. Fucking hell majority of the dealers didn’t sell well. A lot of them said that this is their worst ala sales and that’s coming from last year which was their best

>> No.10078697

Hospitality room for the staffers, right? I thought program ops was overstaffed this year due to the expansion. Yeah, no badge check aside from getting into the convention center seemed fishy.

I'm going to ask around for more info at the staff dinner.

>> No.10078703

Yeah no, this con was not planned less than a month. That said, majority of mid-to-low-tier staffs are inexperienced with running conventions and they're still suffering through 'growing pain' to this day. Couple that with this con's already instilled 'party convention' mentality, ALA's gonna keep hurting until they're done.

>> No.10078704

I doubt cutting costs was a reason, as no one got paid. They just got free badges and hotel reimbursement.
However, I agree that the dealers hall sucked. It's way too small for a con of this size and they need to get some industry booths. If Aniplex will vend at Chara-Expo which was a fraction of the size of this con, I'm willing to bet they'd vend at ALA. I know some companies got rejected, so it's not a matter of them turning it down. But it was literally the same booths of ali express itabags, figures and nendroids and plushies over and over again. No real variety.
I agree that it wasn't worth the price and they need to step it up if they're going to charge so much. Also the "no outside food and drink" rule is bullshit. I've never had any other convention center be like that. You'll still sell shit to people, but I'm still not going to buy overpriced food/drinks from your con center if you wont let me bring in my own.

>> No.10078706

There's also a big problem with some staff having been there for years but never changing how they do shit. That and a major lack of professionalism.

Too many staff/volunteers show up ready to party and not ready to run an event. Then they get pissy when shit doesn't go right.

>> No.10078707

Chara Expo was run by Bushiroad, company with WAAAY more bank than ALA. Also, ALA has very little industry connection and their overall attendee numbers don't warrant any industry attention.

>> No.10078710

oh yeah definitely. Hell, some of these staffers talked mad shit about artist alley artists on their facebook last year when the tent fiasco was brought up.

this is a good pro/con list. as someone who has been going since LAX hotel days, this was overall one of the best ALAs because social and shopping reasons. Can confirm as ex staffer that last minute staff firing is common practice. Got evacuated but other than that, had a blast, no pun intended. AA had a lot of quality artists, in both art and personality. Only benefit of Dealer Hall being the size it was helped keep aisles from getting as crowded as the AA. Tons of great cosplayers, lots of friendly people. Car arson was fucked up.

I was disappointed by this too. If they do allow 8 players per game over 6 sessions, they're only providing for 48 players per day. That is a very low number of players for the cost of developing the game. They should make it shorter (like 30 min), or multiple rooms of the same game running. I hope they see the popularity and improve it next year.

This year was my first ALA, but it was great.

The highlight of the con was definitely the fire. I didn't expect the convention itself to have much content, but at least the convention center was pretty nice and they gave out free water. Dealer's hall was a joke. There was pretty much no reason to buy a badge at all.

Apparently there was a lot of drama but I'm disinterested enough and autistic enough to not be able to form quality bonds with people here to be involved in that drama. Parties were nice. Alcohol flowed freely.

I'm going to agree. sucks you lost your 27k but goddamn when a car costs that much you put comprehensive on it. my 3k beater I only have collision on but that's because the damn thing only cost me 3k. also asking for another 25k to assumably buy another car that costs that much without comprehensive again.

You know that bail is just a holding of funds/assets until court date/hearings are had then you have that money returned to you.

Honestly I can't see them losing the contract over the arson. That was an incredibly specific vendetta case that could have happened anywhere at any time, independent of the convention. The Senpai Squad party car accident and the other bullshit that went down in regards to that, however, is something I can definitely see fucking with rooming matters, as that was explicitly the fault of congoers getting drunk and acting out of control. There's also the matter of how many tensions there always seem to be with the Ratchetson, considering they are aggressively too incompetent and lazy to do anything with their hotel while expecting congoers to treat their shitbox like a 5-star mansion. I didn't hear any actual issues with the facilities housed in the Doubletree, so I see that hotel being more utilized in the future, if future ALA's are going to remain in Ontario. Other than that, this really isn't enough to completely can a con, considering how extremely specific and personal the worst offense was.

That's the fault of the hotels, as well as convention center security details not having power over every single piece of surrounding property. I'm not going to defend this degree of laziness at all, but just point the finger at the right asshole.

The dude in question wasn't associated with ALA outside being a ticket holder, the convention center was not damaged and the fire did not take place in it.Thinking they will lose the contract or some shit over this is silly, most con places like this require insurance and stuff for reasons such as this.

ALA is probably the largest con I tolerate. AX just kept growing so large and now is so large that the actual neat things are watered down to appease the masses more and more. It can't move because no other place can handle that amount of people, everything you want to buy is a stupid premium, outside some very specific guests getting in to the panels are just stand in lines: the con.

For the price of going to AX without a group to split costs for the hotel you could probably fly to japan get your weeb fix in and fly back.

She may have taken out a loan, not a lease. But in either case it is absolute insanity to not have liability on a $25,000 vehicle. Either she's an idiot or she's fibbing to the internet to rake in a whole bunch of cash.

Also, even if she paid $27,000 for a new or newer Subaru several years ago, that is not what the car is worth now. A quick googling puts that car at closer to $19-$22k. I felt bad for her and all of the victims, but this gofundme is fishy.

She did have liability, but liability doesn’t cover arson. Maybe should have looked at that while you were googling.

>> No.10079894

Sorry I meant "more than" liability. Without collision or comprehensive insurance you're basically assuming that the only thing that will ever happen to your car is that someone else will hit it and be at fault; you're SOL for no-fault accidents, you causing accidents, or shit like this. It's not a smart thing to do if your car is worth a lot of money.

Ex-staffer, can confirm that the old comp policy (to staff you still paid for your weekend badge, but if you decide not to staff the next year you get your paid badge rolled over) ended and I had to pay full price at the door.

idk, I like the Ontartio area because it's pretty isolated and semi-comfy.

The hotels are desperate enough for money they leave us alone most of the time. I assume if we move to ACC, the hotels will get more strict, and also hotel prices will be higher since Disney area.

>I say this every year .. but please stop damaging the hotel (Gateway). They liked their facade in the elevator - and they cannot replace it - and they couldn't have one elevator look different - so the Maintenance guy spent somewhere over 6 hours pulling all of it down today. The facade was damaged on Thursday for reference (was fine at 3pm checkin, and damaged when i returned), some one pulled/ripped a good section off. Furthermore, the housekeepers aren't paid if you don't let them in, they are sent home. Even if you never used housekeeping try to give them $1/person/day on the day you leave (because after you leave they do have to reset the room) if you can spare it. Lastly, we heard the manager make multiple calls today telling people they lost their damage deposit and some where charged over $200 more for damages. We are not a fun time for that hotel... just enjoy the con, and try to be less destructive. Since the Gateway will be a Marriott next year we can only hope they allow people to stay year after year and do such actions. This is more of a PSA, that any kind of acquisition - you can consider it nothing more that one persons ramblings not targeted at anyone specifically.

The dude must be new, those wall paper shits in the elevators are meant to be rip and replace. They are made for luggage constantly bumping and scuffing it, like a table cloth on a table.

> Furthermore, the housekeepers aren't paid if you don't let them in, they are sent home.
No they aren't paid by room, no place does this. They may go home early but always something to do often most work slower.

>Even if you never used housekeeping try to give them $1/person/day on the day you leave (because after you leave they do have to reset the room) if you can spare it

Oh yes I am sure this is not fun for you because you just explained how you had to put up with a shit load of shit already, yet charging for obvious damages that get this, house cleaning MUST SPEND EXCESS TIME/OVERTIME REPAIRING, is heart breaking. Weren't they just going home earlier?
