Thanks to your overwhelming responses, we have reviewed the viability of continued at-the-door registrations and upgrades for our Sponsor Program. With great consideration, we have chosen to keep this program up and going for all of our attendees who wish to participate in it and help further support AnimeIowa. However, please be aware that do to the late nature of any upgrades or registrations that any and all at-the-door Sponsor registrations will be unable to attend the Guest Brunch due to limited seating. In addition, a modified sponsor bag will be made available to all at-the-door sponsors. Don’t forget everything else that being a sponsor can bring to you though. This includes the VIP seating in the Cosplay, a convention t-shirt, early admittance to the Dealer’s Room and access to the Recharge Room. These great benefits are still available to those bold enough to go for them.

Greetings AnimeIowa Con-goers! We have a very important, and unfortunate announcement to make. With our growing popularity and the eagerness of some of you, we have had a massive jump in Sponsor registration! Unfortunately, this also means with our current financial restraints, we cannot accommodate any at-the-door sponsors this year, or upgrades. This is an unprecedented and unforeseen response to our Sponsorship program and we are happy to have so many of you support the con, but that enthusiasm has put us at the ends of our budget. We hope those of you who wished to be sponsors can sign up next year as early as possible, and we hope to have more resources to utilize in the coming years. Thank you very much.
AI Con Executives
