Starting The New Year – Anime SG Will All Be OkamiCon

12 Dec

This is now official notice as to not to confuse anyone in the very near future: Starting January 1st, 2013, the URL for Anime St. George webpage and blog (www.animesg.net and http://www.animesg.com respectively) will no longer be functional. After that date, you will need to go to the main OkamiCon Webpage (www.okamicon.com) for both OkamiCon Utah and OkamiCon Nevada information, registration, etc. Both pages for Utah and Nevada are separated so simply click the link on the splash page for the one you wish to visit.

That also being sad, all of our other social media accounts for Anime SG are also going to be deleted or closed starting the first of the year. This includes the ASG WordPress Blog, Facebook and Twitter. I have tried to encourage everyone to follow our new social media pages for OkamiCon and post announcements that the others will be closing, however, people still insist on liking, following or subscribing to ones that are no longer updated.

If you have not yet liked the new OkamiCon Facebook or Twitter, you can do so by following the little feeds here on the main page of this blog (OkamiCon Blog) or by the feeds from the OkamiCon Webpage.

Also, for those who are curious, the photos from the Anime St. George Facebook Albums have all been moved over to OkamiCon so please feel free to go and re-tag yourself or your friends.

OkamiCon Nevada Dates for 2013

16 Nov

So the moment you have all been waiting for has finally arrived. It took a little longer then expected because life sometimes likes to jump out and kick you in the gonads. However, despite a busy work life, some nasty bug I still haven’t quite gotten rid of, and temperamental HTML code, the new OkamiCon Nevada website is up and functional along with the new dates for next year.

Things were a bit touch and go there for a while and there was a moment when I thought we would have to be suspended a year but everything has worked out quite pleasantly. We now have a new home and new double dates for your fandom enjoyment.

So the new dates for OkamiCon Nevada 2013 are…*drum roll*

May 17th & 18th, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Express

Unfortunately we will not be returning to Casablanca as they wanted me to sell a kidney to pay for the rooms. While I know a person can function with only one kidney, I would rather leave both of them intact and where they are so, that is why we have changed locations (for those who are curious). The Holiday Inn Express has been fabulous in working with us so far and we will pretty much be taking over the entire lobby and meeting areas. So far we have:

  • Two Vendor Rooms (Sunset Mesa and Falcon West)
  • Activity and Event Room (Falcon East)
  • Screening Room (Arcade Room)

Yes, you did read that correctly. Screenings will take place in the Arcade which is being set up to fit our needs. Also, for those of you who are staying at the hotel, you will be eating breakfast in the same area that will be set up to be our Activity and Events Room. A rather entertain and curious fact.

Regarding Vendors: I am still waiting on a layout of the Exhibit halls so I can put together a vendor map for both rooms. Booth registration should be opening around November 30th, give or take a few days.

So the OkamiCon Nevada webpage has been completely redesigned and updated with the new information. The design has it’s own special flare while still having a uniform layout to match the OkamiCon Utah page. Also, the OkamiCon.Com splash page will now give you an option to choose which convention page you would live to view (either Utah or Nevada).

There are still a few things that need to be done and updated which I will get to once I start feeling better:

  • Okami Promotions Webpage (need to update event information)
  • OkamiCon Utah Page (new dates, event information, etc.)
  • OkamiCon Blog (change a few things around to reflect both conventions)

As I am sure you have already noticed, the blog has a new look itself. There are still some updates that need to be made with the  blog pages as I am going to change them completely around, but that will come in the next few weeks.
