Thanks for AnimeIowa 2012

The executives and staff would like to thank everyone who came to AnimeIowa 2012!

Attendance was at an all-time high, yet everyone demonstrated what a great bunch of people we have coming to this convention.  More than one person commented on the maturity and honesty of the attendees and we continue to be both amazed and proud of you all.

This was definitely a year of transition for us as we implemented a new management structure.  We definitely learned a lot this year and we cannot thank you enough for bearing with us.  We want this be a convention for the people, and your comments are all being reviewed and will be very helpful as we look for areas to improve.  If you haven’t done so already, please take a few moments and fill out an online feedback form or comment on the feedback sections of our forum.  You will most assuredly be heard, so be honest and respectful.

It is with great confidence that we say that next year will be even better!  We’re already working on finding new guests, beefing up programming, and finding ways to make the whole convention run smoother. Look for information on the forums as we identify improvements and clarify policies, and remember to give us feedback!

Thank you all again for attending and we hope to see you all back next year!

– The AnimeIowa Staff of 2012
