Ladies and gentleman, everyone on the MAGFest staff would like to thank all of YOU, the attendees, for making MAGFest X the best one in the history of the event. We had 6100 people in attendance this year, which is double that of last year. We hope you enjoyed being there, because we sure as hell enjoyed putting it on for you. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to fill out our Feedback Form. As much as we did right this year, we know there was a lot we could improve on, so let us know what you loved, what you hated, and what you would like to see.

In order to allow for convenient planning, MAGFest XI has been announced to return to the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, MD on January 3 – 6 2013 with hotel reservations opening soon. Time to start saving up
