Yesterday, Carrie V made an excellent suggestion: ask if the con suite would be willing to host an SH tea party.
But I couldn't find the con suite. And it wasn't mentioned in the pocket program guide.
So I went and asked at the Information desk downstairs. And both people I asked said “Con suite? What's that?”
So I'm guessing there isn't one here. But I'm also wondering whether the idea of a con suite just isn't something that's done at Australian cons. Or maybe it was just the people I asked who happened to not know about them?
The rest of the con's culture seems pretty familiar, more or less what I'm used to, so this surprised me. (Though I had been going to cons for probably ten years before I found out about con suites.)
Are there other standard aspects of American cons that don't appear in cons elsewhere? Are there standard aspects of cons from other countries that don't show up at American cons? I'm guessing there are; curious as to what some of them might be.
