- ACCC attendees at the Henry B. González Convention Center in 2017
Now, the con has moved yet again — to the Grand Hyatt Hotel next door to HBG. So why not return to the convention center, where cons like PAX South have thrived for years?
As it turns out, although there was a conflict on the books for the dates requested by ACCC, convention center staff had another reason to decline to host the event: San Antonio Assistant City Manager Carlos Contreras said that the con still owes the City of San Antonio “in excess of $170,000 from two prior events.”
When queried by the Current regarding his outstanding debts, De La Fuente said, "Due to extenuating circumstances beyond our control that arose after last year’s show, we weren’t able to pay the city’s bill in full."
"However," he continued, "ACCC is committed to paying the city everything it’s owed and plans to do so as soon as it can."
