Anime League and Alcon 2008
« on: November 07, 2007, 06:35:15 PM »
Hi guys, here's a copy of our press release. You are all welcome to attend - the more the merrier. ^_^

We are delighted to announce that Alcon '08 will run on 5-7 September 2008 at De Montfort University, Leicester City Campus. Alcon is an extremely friendly and innovative anime convention that aims to provide something fresh and exciting to its attendees. At just £25 for three day entry, and just £19.50 per night for accommodation, the convention represents excellent value.

As well as anime screening, there shall be a video gaming room, an Artist Ally, a Cosplayer's Hangout, a Card-Gaming/Roleplaying room, an Anime Bar, a Dealers room and much more. So, whether you want to chill out and watch some anime, nip down to the bar and have a few drinks, party all night, or maybe have a laugh with some friends on a video game, this convention will be for you. You do not have to be a hard-core otaku to enjoy it!

Events exclusive to Alcon will return such as the Iron Artist, Cosplay Blind-Date and 5 Minute Cosplay, along with several entirely new ideas such as The Battle of the DJs, a Video Gaming Party, and Alcon Assassins. Of course the more traditional fare such as the Cosplay Masquerade, Pub Quiz and so on will also take place.

Favourites such as Akemi Solloway and David Bircham shall return, with more guests to be confirmed. Finally! Keep an eye out for the Pirates v Ninjas v Vampires battle that shall ensue at the convention! Which side wins? YOU shall decide!

If any of this interests you then why not check out the Alcon site now on http://www.alcon.org.uk/index.php Prices will increase after April 31st, and we can not guarantee places once we exceed 350 signups, so make sure to book and pay early to avoid disappointment. You can register at http://www.alcon.org.uk/registration.php

We hope to see you there!

Thanks! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to address them in this thread.

(p.s. if there is a convention section I couldn't find it please move it there if needed!)
