Mr. Otakon Goes To Washington (in 2017)

From 2017 onward, Otakon will be moving to Washington, DC from its current home in Baltimore. It will continue to be held around the same time of year.

In this interview with Anime News Network, con chair Terry Chu and Otakorp president Andrew Earnhardt indicate that the main reason was outgrowing the Baltimore Convention Center. They investigated potential new sites as far away as an unspecified place in the Midwest(!) but eventually were able to not have to move too far.
