If it's in the US, I'd love to have it on the East Coast, so I can get there. DC would be perfect.

I did some CraftTweaker scripts for Mystical Agriculture. They fill in a couple of small gaps in MA, and also let you make or duplicate not only vanilla plants, but the blocks, plants and wood from Quark and Biomes O'Plenty. Also spawn eggs for most vanilla mobs! The scripts are here on Github.
So everyone wants it where they are. But I can't complain because I want it where am too, or maybe I don't since then it would be even worse if I couldn't go which would probably happen anyway since the tickets probably cost an arm and a leg and the other leg too.
Yeah Pennsylvania would actually be great. I also don't have enough money. Like StereoBets92 I am a sort of small youtuber. I have never really gone to Minecon. I really want to go somewhere near Pennsylvania
Just be happy it has been in your country for multiple times because it hasn't been in my country (the Netherlands) once.

What about having two, one in Europe, lets say, and one in North America. But there are also the people in places like Asia, Australia/New Zealand and south America, any event done in any of those places couldn't be very big though because there aren't all that many Minecrafters living there, most of us live in North America and Europe, as stated earlier. Also I think Anaheim and California in general is WAY over-rated, it's also not well situated geographically or population-wise. A good geographical location for North America would be South Dakota, population-wise, Michigan would be good. I'm going in blind here and have no idea where in either of those states such a big event could be hosted. You Americans are spoiled rotten, you get everything right in your country.
I live in the middle of the United states. I can go really anywhere at a moderate expense. However, I would love for it to be held in Salt Lake City, Des Moines, Kansas City, or New York, because I can see family there. I have family at all these places so I wouldn't have to get a hotel.
Minecon is not an inexpensive experience, even if it is in your hometown.
Last year the tickets were $130 US dollars per person. You also had to be prepared to purchase the tickets within the first 30 seconds or so of them going on sale. Yes, they sell out that quickly. So even if it's in the building across the street where you live, there's no guarantee that you will get tickets in the first place.
If you do happen to get a ticket, you also have to consider the money that you will need for food, parking, and any memorabilia that you want to buy while you are there. None of those things are cheap.
If it's not in your home town, then you will of course have to pay for transportation (driving, flying, train, etc.) and hotel accommodations as well.
Here's a recommendation that I have. If you are 18 years old or above, and you are able to at least afford the travel, hotel, and food, it is possible that you can attend Minecon for free. When the announcement for Minecon is made, go to the Mojang website and fill out a request form to work as an agent at the convention. If you are selected, you will have to pay a $60 US dollar deposit for your ticket which will be refunded to you after the convention. You will have to work one of the two days of the convention, but the other day is yours to do with as you please. I did this for the 2016 Minecon and it worked out rather nicely.
How about mojang sets up some type of program for people who are too far away from Minecon to pay to watch it online.
Most of the panels are already being put onto YouTube later in the day. So if you only want to attend the panels this is good news for you.
Part of the experience of Minecon however is the participation and getting to meet the people you enjoy watching on YouTube. There's also the bag of goodies that all attendees get along with the coveted "Minecon Cape" that everyone wants.
I really hope that everyone here is able to attend Minecon at least once in your life. It was an incredible experience. However, if you are on a limited income it's a bit of a frivolous expense, so only go if you can truly afford to do so. You'll enjoy yourself much more if you don't have to worry about how much this is going to cost you.
