One thing that’s new this year for the waiting list! We will NOT be offering second chances due to the unique circumstances surrounding the city this year. You MUST be reachable at the phone number AND email you provide and you have THREE DAYS to respond. Confirmation emails will be provided once your information is received.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

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 Please remember that the forums are currently out of working order and some information is outdated.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!

Hello, AI 2015 Attendees!
Due to a large city wide event in the Coralville/Iowa City area, our room blocking must begin early. This means that attendee room blocking will open on Monday, December 1st, 2014.
It is highly important that if a room is not available at the Marriott, to please note that rooms throughout the area in surrounding hotels cannot be guaranteed this year starting in January. Please make your reservation plans quickly, as AnimeIowa is not responsible for the loss of rooms outside of the Marriott.
Please do not hesitate to book your room at an area hotel if you are on the waiting list once the room block closes because, as always, AnimeIowa cannot guarantee placement inside the Marriott after the block is full.
We know it’s early, and that can make booking a room difficult, so please direct any questions or concerns to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will answer to the best of our authority.

The AnimeIowa 2015 Executive Team is working behind the scenes with our staff to make this year our best convention yet. While AnimeIowa’s 2015 theme is indeed “Ninjas: Celebrating 10 Years of the LoDN,” we also do have a sub-theme this year to celebrate our dedicated staff and volunteers.
That is why we are kicking off the year with a staff drive. People who are interested in becoming staff are humbly invited to attend our first AnimeIowa 2015 Staff Meeting on October 18 at 2:00 PM at the Coralville Marriott.
In addition, we are also announcing a new perk that we are offering to our staff this year: a comped staff room block. We are still working out the details and the requirements, but we will have more information and feedback on this at our upcoming meeting.
