A Big Thank You from the Paneling Team!

Hello AnimeIowa Congoers!

The AnimeIowa Paneling Team would like to thank everyone for their panel submissions for 2015. We had many fantastic panels submitted to us this year. In fact, for one of the first times, we had so many panels submitted that we did not have the paneling space for all of them! We truly appreciate everyone’s time and effort in coming up with these fantastic panels. You all truly make the convention what it is. We would like to remind our wonderful panelists to check the forums for your panel check in times as well as the awesome new perks we have prepared for you. Also keep your eyes pealed for new big events for AnimeIowa 2015!

Once again, thank you all for your submissions. We look forward to seeing all of you at AnimeIowa 2015 and making this year the best year yet!

David Matranga Update

Due to unforeseen circumstances, previously confirmed guest David Matranga will not be able to join us at AnimeIowa in 2015.  We are disappointed that he cannot be with us this time, but look forward to working with him in the future!

Guest Updates!

AnimeIowa is pleased to announce some exciting new additions to the guest lineup!  We have some fabulous people coming this year, including international guest Shinichi “Nabeshin” Watanabe!  For more information on all of our wonderful guests, please check out the GUESTS page.

Family Programming Updates

Child Rate for Registration

Did you know that a child badge has a lower rate this year?  That’s right!  Whether pre-reg or at the convention, a child badge is only $35 for ages 6-12.

 

Spot the Ninja

Spot the Ninja is a hotel-wide activity that Family Programming will be hosting this year.  We will have small decals of ninjas up around the hotel.  Prizes will be given out to families who can spot the ninjas! Prize levels will depend on the number of ninja decals they find.  Others are welcome to participate as well and will receive a sticker for their participation.

Marketplace Update

Merchants – The Retail Merchants space in the Marketplace is full.  We will still be accepting applications for Merchants, but they will be on a waiting list to fill vacancies created by cancellations.

Artists – There is still some room in the Artists Village section of the Marketplace.

Paid services at AnimeIowa

With the many advances of technology (for example photography) many changes have occurred. These services in the past were utilized by a select group of hobbies/professions because of the cost factor, but now are used by many people for profit. There are many who are offering services at AnimeIowa which include Photo shoots, commissions, and costumes. These services are great, but they also must keep in the confines of Iowa law for sales of goods and services.

AnimeIowa has in place a policy to include these services in the convention experience. Please review the AnimeIowa 2015 Paid Services Policy and address any questions to: Marketplace.dept@animeIowa.com
