Well another Anime Milwaukee has come and gone. The frenzy has died down and we have relaxed from the excitement of the weekend. All of the staff here would like to now take the time to thank every single one of you from oblivious babies to old, seasoned convention veterans to clueless parents, finding out just what they got themselves into. We put our time into producing a convention because we want to share our love of anime, gaming, raving, lecturing, and more, with you! We are so happy to have spent an awesome weekend with our both our old and new friends. We hope that you will join again next year!
Please connect with us on facebook or twitter as we recount our memories with you!
For those who are looking ahead and preparing for 2014, our dates next year are February 14-16th! Keep an eye open for pre-registration, when it opens, to get the best rate for your badge. If you are the sort that wants to join our devoted and driven team, please email our Chief of Staff. If you have any other questions please email us!
Thanks again everyone and we look forward to seeing you next year! (or sooner!)
02.15.2013 - Help Speed up that Registration Line
Coming to pick up your badge this weekend and want to help speed up those lines so you can enjoy more of the convention? Use our mobile site to register your badge!
Go to animemilwaukee.com/m/ and click on the "REGISTER" button.
As an added bonus, on Saturday and Sunday if you use PayPal to finish your transaction you can skip the at-con registration line altogether and go to the pre-registration line to pick up your badge! Hooray for technology! Even if you can't pay online, the mobile registration will allow you to avoid filling out the paper form and expedite your badge processing, though you will still have to wait in line.
Lastly while you are at the convention you can use the mobile site to check maps, search for events, and keep appraised of any updates!
