The Venue

Here is a quick look at the chosen venue. The convention will take place in October.

The Vicksburg convention center is located right on the river, in Vicksburg Mississippi

I should have ten 10X10 vendor booths available.

I am still looking at costs but I should have a contract signed and a firm date by this weekend.

Update January 2021

Anyone else love Sealab 2021?. .

Planning is proceeding at a good pace. I am involved in talks with the Vicksburg Convention Center and looking at costs. I will share an update with that soon because I think people might find it interesting.

I am thinking October instead of my original idea of August. It’s less crowded convention-wise, and the weather is better

I am planning on having Jack Greene as a guest and I want to reach out to Lou Zocchi as well.

Looks like my first step is forming a LLC. I should get that done this week.

Update

There is movement on a piece I was a waiting on to make this convention happen. If it all goes well I will be in a position to move forward at the end of October.

I was just about to start looking at the feasibility of a Kickstarter to raise funds to host the convention. That could still be a possibility as I want to have this convention next year one way or another.
