Sukoshi Con – PokeCON the Social Anime Convention

PokeCON

With conventions happening all over the U.S., I feel it’s important to know which ones are worth going to and why. Today we’re going to be taking a look at PokeCON, hosted by Sukoshi Con! I’m going to give a breakdown of all the information you need in order to decide whether or not you’d like to go – but remember it does start tomorrow so you better decide quick.

Location

  • Louisville, KY
  • Crowne Hotel and Expo Center
    830 Phillips Lane
    Louisville, KY 40209

If you’re in the area this is definitely going to be a Con to check out!

Rates

  • 3 Day Pass - $50

Nearby Hotels & Amenities

Especially if you’re going to be traveling to Louisville you may be wondering what hotels are nearby that you could contact, well let me help you out here:

  • Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport Expo Center
    Starting at $119 a night you can reach them at (502) 367-2251.
  • Courtyard Louisville Airport
    Beginning at $93 a night it would be your next best bet for reserving a room close to the Expo Center. You can reach the hotel at (502) 368-5678.
  • Hilton Garden Inn Louisville Airport
    At $125 a night it’s the most expensive of the three; however if there’s no other rooms available at the others this one would be your next best bet. You may reach them at (502) 637-2424.

If you’re worried about nearby restaurants or fast food joints, don’t be! There’s plenty that can be found very close and if you want to be absolutely sure, you can find a list on the Sukoshi Con’s website here. I personally suggest the Hard Rock Café and Steak ’N Shake!
