As announced after last year’s convention, the theme for AnimeIowa 2015 is “Ninjas: Celebrating 10 Years of the LoDN”. It’s hard not to love ninjas, since they’re such an exciting part of Japanese traditional and modern culture. Our staff is hard at work preparing ninja-themed events for the convention, and we invite our attendees to make plans too. CLICK HERE to learn more about what ninja items to look for (but not see) at AnimeIowa 2015, and to review the recently released details.

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

Ready to book your room for AnimeIowa 2015? We’ve got the information for you! A few things have changed this year and the hotel team is ready and waiting for your questions. A Single King room books for $127 plus tax per night, and a Double Queen at $134 plus tax per night. Please remember that room types are NOT guaranteed, and you will be placed by availability.
If there are any questions, please take a look at the 2014 FAQ and hotel reservation instructions pages. Please remember that the forums are currently out of working order and some information is outdated. So, even though there is lots of useful information, it has not been updated for 2015! For example, December 1st is the opening date for the room block!
We repeat, the hotel team is standing by for questions.
We look forward to an excellent year!
