Otakorp, Inc. has announced a brand new event: Otakon Vegas. Otakon Vegas will be taking place January 3-5, 2014 at the Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In a statement, Otakon Vegas Convention Chair Victor Albisharat says, "Otakon Vegas is a new event that will allow us to further our mission. We're nearing the capacity of our home in Baltimore; the next logical step would be to expand. As well, we wanted to create a smaller and more intimate setting where we can try out new things. With that in mind, we're working on some exciting new events and formats that might not lend itself to our larger event in Baltimore."
