This looks different from what you did in 2017, what’s changed?
In 2017, we featured a modest VIP option which focused on Access. We designed that package to help ensure our VIPs were able to confidently enjoy each and every Amaicon event that interested them over the 3 day weekend.
A little backstory; At Amaicon, our motto is “Start Here”. As we starting planning Amaicon 2018, we put a lot of thought into how to make Amaicon a convention that is equally welcoming and appealing to people who have never been to an anime convention before as it is for people who are veterans in the world of conventions. In the end, we thought about what made us fall in love with running conventions and the answer was you – our community. You are the reason we are here.
With that in mind; in 2018 we’ve expanded the VIP experience. In addition to the benefits from 2017, we are focusing on building and bringing our community together. As an Amaicon VIP in 2018 you will have exclusive access to two VIP events and exclusive merchandise. The full details are outlined above.
