10 Dec

ST. GEORGE, UT – After much anticipation, Southern Utah based anime convention, Anime St. George, announces their event date for the 2012 convention season.

Anime St. George will be celebrating their “fabulous” fourth year on September 29th, 2012, at the Best Western Abbey Inn located St. George, Utah. The Abbey Inn has been the home of Anime SG since the convention’s start back in fall of 2009, and the event’s organizers, Okami Promotions, are excited to be holding the event at the familiar location.

“We are happy to be returning to the Best Western Abbey Inn.” tells Lisa Monroe, Marketing Director and Head of Public Relations for Okami Promotions.  “It is the perfect venue for us and our attendees like the location. We look forward to bringing a whole new pallet of flavors to the table for this year’s events.”

Joining Anime St. George in Okami Promotions’s event lineup is OkamiCon; a multi-genre convention focusing on anime, comics, gaming and other pop-culture fandom. OkamiCon 2012 will be taking place May 19th, 2012, at the CasaBlanca Resort and Casino in Mesquite, Nevada.

“One event simply is not enough for me.” Monroe continues. “OkamiCon is something that I have been planning for a while now and have finally made into a reality. My hope is to make an alternative event to those in the area who do not wish to travel a great distance to larger comic and gaming conventions.”
