I think it's about time to get a thread going regarding Retro World Expo (RWX) this year.  Tickets are now on sale and RF Generation will once again have a big presence there.  Here is a link to the official site for more details: http://retroworldexpo.com/

However, be sure to set up this thread for notifications so that all of us can meet up, get some meals together, and possibly even hang out a little.

How to Get There
The closest airport to the Connecticut Convention Center and RetroWorld Expo is Bradley International Airport.  It's about a 15 minute drive from downtown Hartford.  The closest airport to WildBil52's house, where much of the hanging out will be the week before the show, is Westchester County Airport in White Plains. NY.

Alright, who's going?

Oh you know I'll be there Wink  For anyone flying in, Westchester County Airport in White Plains might be a little further from Hartford than Bradley International Airport in CT but the flights to and from Westchester tend to be cheaper.  Any any questions about the area here and I'll do my best to answer

Man, I may need to go for the auction alone. There were some good items last year.

The auction is a lot of fun and a good place to score a decent deal on some hard fairly rare items.  A few of our members have actually helped out with the auction in years past.

So I know it's a bit early yet but I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with the different options for staying out there (hotel vs Airbnb vs something else) and has some good recommendations. Plane tix are pretty decent at the moment so I was going to pick that up soon.

This is our first time in Hartford.  We got group rates at 3 different hotels so people with different budgets would have an option.  The Downtown Marriot is the most expensive option but also attached to the Convention Center.  I personally HIGHLY recommend that hotel if you can swing it, maybe split the room with some friends.  I haven't personally used airbnb in the area since I live here but I will ask around and see if anyone has any recommendations.  Hope to see you in October!

Thanks for the tips! I'd like to go with the attached hotel, that would be super convenient. And I'm considering driving, which could save me some cash to make up for the more expensive room, and make it easier to get to meet-ups.

If anyone wants to go in and split a room let me know.
