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
UPDATE: This announcement has been revised http://animeiowa.com/2012/07/09/important-spon…ogram-update-2/
