2016 was pretty bad for AA but 2017 definitely a turnaround. The prices for the tables still are the best i've seen for cons I've tables at. The area in 2017 was in allentown, the area was abit unsafe because if you went too far from the main hotel area you'd end up in a some crappy areas. The surrounding con area was nice, food were in the hotel area and cheap.
The con layout was confusing panelwise but they learned from 2016 and made artist alley easier to find. They're learning from their mistakes and trying to do better, its a great con for newbies to aa and experienced aa tablers

A lot of issues
I did pretty decent at Saikou, but I think I was just lucky because almost everyone I talked to, AA and venders, did really terrible. Mostly not making the table cost back. It was a mess. They held the con in the middle of nowhere, so it was not all that busy. The staff were useless. When I registered they didn't even know where the AA was. The AA was in a separate building and it had no signs. Friday was totally dead. Saturday was okay. Sunday was pretty dead and everyone packed up early. There was no phone service or wifi. After the con, the staff were rude on Facebook and upset pretty much all artists. Definitely not going there again.
