Anime North Thread for 2013

A forum for people to list and discuss any upcoming conventions and possible meetups. ~^_^

Postby misskiki » Sat Dec 22, 2012 4:04 am

Good day all.

Sure this might seem a little early for an event hapenning on Memorial day, May 2013. But pre register weekend passes go on sale in just over a week.

Again this year there will be an Attendance cap, so there will likely be no weekend passes available at the door.

Here's the official website.

http://www.animenorth.com/live/

From looking at the splash page, the main hotel has already been booked solid. Last year last day, I booked two suites at the Radisson across the street. Will be confirming those reservations in the new year, and will then be willing to book roomies. Rooms are Suites, with a door between bedroom and living areas. Sink and Bar fridge usually included.

If anyone has definite plans for going, let me know. We can start planning in advance.

Online Pre-Registration

Anime North uses the Eventbrite ticker server to perform our online registration. Through it, you may purchase single Weekend or Single-Day admissions (either adult or children), Group admissions, merchandise or special event tickets for Anime North 2013 using your credit card.

Note, there will a processing fee of approx. 4.5% charged by Eventbrite for each admission or item purchased. Attendees who do not wish to pay this fee can pre-register through the regular mail using the forms available in the next section.

See Anime North On-Line Registration for more information.
Pre-Registration through Regular Mail

Attendees can also pre-register by completing and submitted an Anime North Registration Form through the regular mail, with payment by cheque or money order.

Deadline for purchasing Anime North 2013 admissions through regular mail is March 15, 2013.

Pre-registration through the regular mail is shutting down earlier in 2013 than in previous years. This is to help ensure admissions through the regular mail do not exceed the attendance cap.

Confirmation Forms

After a pre-registration form is received and processed, a confirmation form for each admission/special event ticket/t-shirt purchased will be sent back by email (or regular mail if the purchaser does not have an email address). The email will be from the Eventbrite ticket server, with the confirmation being an attached .PDF file, with a link to the file included in the body of the email.

Online registrations should receive a confirmation form by email within 24 hours of purchase.

Registrations by regular mail will take approx. 3 weeks from mailing to receive their confirmation forms.

For group registrations, individual confirmation forms will be sent out to all group members. Copies will also be sent to the group leader. If individual members do not receive their confirmation forms, please contact the group leader first to see if he/she has received a copy.

Please bring a copy of your confirmation with you to the Registration Desk when you first arrive at the convention to receive your convention badge. Note that groups do not have to arrive together; individual forms are sent out so group members can arrive separately.

Providing a valid email address will ensure a quicker response to your registration. Anime North does not trade or sell email addresses; they are kept confidential.

Attendance Cap

As you're all no doubt aware, Anime North has been getting bigger and bigger each year for quite a while now, with each year setting a new attendance record. While this is great in a lot of ways (we love to see everyone coming out and having fun), handling all these people, getting all the attendees into and around the con without having to stand in line-ups for hours, is a huge job, especially when you're a volunteer-run event. There are also potential issues of over-crowding at our more popular events, and in the hotels in general that have to be taken seriously. Because of this, Anime North has now established an attendance cap.

The objective is to limit total attendance on any single day to 20,000 people. Taking this into account, the total number of admissions that will be sold for Anime North 2013 will be:

Weekend/Group: 15,000
Friday-only: 5,000
Saturday-only: 5,000
Sunday-only: 5,000


Weekend and Saturday-only are the most popular admission choices, and we cannot guarantee that any of these admissions will be available for purchase at the door of the convention; we strongly recommend you purchase your Weekend or Saturday-only admissions through pre-registration when it opens Jan 02, 2013. Friday-only and Sunday-only admissions (which are much less popular) will be available for purchase at the door of the convention, and will also be available through pre-registration this year.

You might ask why Anime North does not simply move to a larger venue. We have looked at possible other locations, but so far, they have had drawbacks that would affect the convention: insufficient nearby hotel rooms, limited public transit access, lack of smaller programming space necessary for many of our events, or higher venue fees that would have to be passed on to the attendees. Finally, there are limits on how large a convention our volunteer staff can handle.

The attendance cap was first introduced in 2012 and worked well, so it will be continued with no changes for 2013. Please take it into account when you make your plans for attending the con in 2013.

Top

Pre-Registration by Regular Mail (Opening Jan 02, 2013))

Attendees can also pre-register by completing and submitted an Anime North Registration Form through the regular mail, with payment by cheque or money order.

Deadline for purchasing Anime North 2013 admissions through regular mail is March 15, 2013.

Pre-registration through the regular mail is shutting down earlier than before in 2013. This is to help ensure admissions through the regular mail do not exceed the attendance cap.
Payment Information:

For Pre-Registration using regular mail, payment can be made using cheques or money orders. Note: they must be made payable to "Anime North Japanese Animation Convention".

Post-dated cheques are not accepted.

If you are paying using a money order (especially for group admissions), we recommend you use registered mail or ExpressPost. Anime North does not accept any responsibility for payment lost in the mail.

All failed cheques will be subject to a $5 processing fee. There may be a slight lag between confirmation of our receipt of your registration, and your cheque being processed, so please do not assume the cheque has cleared until it appears in your chequing account.

U.S. ATTENDEES: If sending a money order, please be sure that it is the Pink, International money order. A standard USPS money order cannot be cashed outside the US.
Single Registrations (Opening Jan 02, 2013):

I think it should go without saying, that I will be going to Anime North.

From conversations in the background, it would appear that at least 9 performers wish to go this year. Another couple of people who will be willing to act as Handlers, and at least three who are still sitting on the fence.

It's early to be thinking about a convention on the Memorial day weekend, but tickets are limited, and hotel space books quickly. Anyone who is thinking about Anime North this year, should be sticking their hands up soon.

Already, the Doubletree, which is the flagship hotel has filled the room block. So has the Radisson across the street, which is the closest hotel to the Convention Center. The overflow hotel for programming, the Sheraton, still has rooms, but I find the shuttle bus too crowded to be used by Kig performers.

Down the road, probably the next closest hotel to the Convention Center, well within walking distance, is the one we used last year.

Holiday Inn Airport - East
600 Dixon Rd.
Toronto, Ontario
M9W 1J1

Hotel Front Desk: 416-240-7511

Rates:
Single/Double: $140/night Single/double room (1 to 2 people)
Triple: $155/night Triple room (3 people)
Quad: $170/night Quad room (4 people)

Parking is $14 a day

It still has rooms available.

Some of the kigurumi group are booked into here. Something to consider if others wish to get a room in the same hotel as other Kig Performers.

Last year, I snagged a couple of rooms at the Radisson, so there should also be another pool of Kig performers there as well.

Some of the group, have not indicated where they plan to be staying.

Given as mentioned elsewhere, most of the performers do not share a common costume theme, the chances of the whole group getting out together will probably be slim. I would suggest we work with the convention to snag one of the venues for photoshoots and have a Kigurumi set. There well could be other Kig performers at the event, not with our group. ( It has happened in the past ) Getting them to show up for pictures would be excellent.

Well I can now officially add my name to the list, as I've received confirmation of my membership.

Yes, I mailed mine in and Snail Mail didn't fail.

So far as I know, without naming names, there's at least a dozen people from our group going. Within that group, 9 performers. Sounds like a good start for a drop in the bucket of 20,000 attending each day.

-- 22 Jan 2013 01:48 --

Can't make any guarantees about rooms, in the event that somebody else wants to show up. Hotel space does tend to evaporate fast. So if anybody else is considering coming check soon.
