Popping in to say...I can't say much, but please please trust me on this. Collectors are going to be happy, former Fair vendors are going to be happy. This is a win, win for us!

*Fingers Crossed* I really don't want it combined with Hascon. I am not interested in the other toys they push and would really just be interested in only a Pony Fair ;)

I just wish they will give more information other than its in September.  I mean it gives me more time to save up time off from my full-time job but not knowing where it is that is what is killing me.  Because I need to get clearance to go from my orthopedic.  Plus with it being in September means it may mean cooler weather, which is bad for me as with my knee condition I need to wear shorter pants in order to be comfortable.

Also, I just hope it is still a separate thing as it has always been.  That has always been its appeal and pleasure to go to just for that reason.

As far as when/where HasCon is, the only information that's been posted is here:

http://hascon.hasbro.com/

So if you need to get cleared medically, might as well do it for Providence RI  (RI Convention Center & Dunkin Donuts Center) for that weekend just in case the Fair is associated with it.   

There's no confirmation the Fair will be linked to HasCon, but if Summer says collectors and former vendors will be happy with what she's working on, then I'm going to bet there's a special dedicated event that's  for us collectors and vendors -- whether it's linked to or apart from the Hasbro convention.   If the Fair was totally absorbed into HasCon like people are fearing, they wouldn't need Summer's help.  And I don't think she'd be reassuring us.

I'm keeping the whole month of September open just in case  ^_^

If its going to be in RI, which I'm guessing Hascon is...you probably do not need to worry about cooler weather. I went to college in RI, and let me tell you, September is hot! Its just as bad as August XD


And also I never understand why autographs create such a rift. You don't have to get one, and like Kitkat said, all the money goes to the guest. I've definitely paid more for autographs, and also seen them charge MUCH more. I think its one more thing you can choose to do or not!

As someone who has volunteered at cons in Dallas, I can tell you as far as autograph prices go, those are generally set by each guest's management/booking team - and as kitkatvintage mentioned, convention organizers don't really make profit off that. And the idea to have a backcard signed is a great one! Or having a gift tag type of thing signed that you maybe tie around a pony's neck with a ribbon, or use as a nameplate type of thing displayed by a pony? Using archival quality materials can help an autograph to last longer as well.  ^.^

I would hope that Hascon wouldn't interfere much with the fair, since the fair is pony-specific, and has been aimed more at the older gens/all gens, whereas Hascon, I'm assuming, would be for all Hasbro's brands.

Update in the other thread  :)  Whatever your thoughts or feelings are about HasCon, the pony event will at least be in the same area and on the same weekend.   

Be prepared for PONY fun September 8-10 in Providence, RI!

Details to come, but it is exciting stuff!!
