Sorry if this is old news or has already been answered.  The only reason my friend Firefly would go is for the collector stuff Summer was trying to organize.  Does anyone have anything officially confirmed for this?
If it's a go what day will it be?

It was confirmed many weeks ago that there is NO special MLP Fans area for selling/trading, no special discount rates, and no "neighborhood hotel".  Of course, Summer isn't allowed to tell us this, per her contract with Hasbro.

 her friends here had to make very vague announcements, since Hasbro wants us all to come and buy lots of G4! 
 let me see if I can find the posts:

I've been on the Fair Staff for the last few years, so this is actual confirmed information:

The official word is there will NOT be a special area for Pony selling/trading/etc.

 All of the currently scheduled events are listed on HasCon's site: https://hascon.hasbro.com/schedule You can select the brand & day to filter out My Little Pony activities. There is a Designer Panel on Friday that will have several designers that worked on both vintage and current brands. The other activities are G4/FiM focused with special guests from the cartoon series (voice actors, writers, etc).

Correct, there are no special plans in place for collectors. As far as I have seen, I do not believe any G1 vendors will be attending. The booth prices were simply to high. If you're looking for a more collector focused event, I would look for a fan planned meet up. Hascon tickets are half off on groupon if you wanted to attend. Next years new event will the collector driven fair we all love.

I'm so happy to hear this. I've wanted to go to the fair for years but it has never been held anywhere near me. I have 0 interest in G4 so Hascon is a big nope from me. I hope the new event is a success next year and for years to come.

No, no separate area for pony fans.  But next year's unofficial convention will be more in line with past MLP Fairs.  :)  For fans, by fans!

Thanks for all your responses.  So it seems like Hasbro was just being stuck up and spend millions of dollars that we can't afford.
