Not for 2007. There's a lot of reasons why we're doing it as a one-
day event, but primarily we're attempting to recreate the feel of
2005's Tokyo event, which was also one-day. (If you think you've got
a long way to go, just think of the dozen or so people who came to
Tokyo with us for that event!)
There's a possibility that we will one day run a longer event, but
for now, this is the way we're doing it. :-)

future will hold, but it's a pretty fair bet that unless someone who
lives there is willing to set up all the details and invite me out,
I (an a large portion of the YC staff) live on the east coast of the
US, so it makes sense that that's where Yuricon is Headquartered. I
and the Yuricon staff *do* travel to other events and we will hold
Yuri Panels in other locations. But there's pretty much no way I can
hold hotel negotiations and set up a con 1/2way around the world from
where I'm located unless there's someone there acting as my agent.
(The organizer of Yuricon '05 was Rica Takashima. There would have
been no YC '05 in Tokyo without her.)
This goes for everywhere - if you want a yuri event on the west coast
of the US, or in Europe, or Australia, DON'T WAIT FOR ME to do it for
you! Just go ahead and set one up on your own. It's not "Yuricon" but
it'll be "Yuri West" or "Yuri UK" or whatever you name it.
Then let me know about it, and I'll gladly list it on our "Events"
page, which currently has a Yuri/Yaoi event in Germany and a con in
Poland with strong yuri content.
Add me to the Guest list and I'll see what I can do about getting
