AnimeIowa Advertising

Industry Guests

These are trades for businesses in the anime industry which can include both advertising space in the programming guide and marketplace space to sell merchandise

Industry guests can receive up to four comped badges and an industry section in the marketplace in exchange for prize support. Ad space in the program book may be purchased or traded for prize support. Trade items must be received before the convention starts in order to count as payment

Convention Trades

These trades are designed for other conventions to advertise with ours. All trade options are available for these trades, and must be completed by June 15th. Conventions choosing to have a marketplace booth trade must show up to the convention or will be asked to pay for the lost space.

Business Trades

Local businesses are also welcome to advertise with us! This includes mainly ad space in the program book and can be paid for or traded for prize support.
