AyaCon Five: Launch Announcement

Date: Tuesday 14th December 2004 [18:40] | Posted By: Joe

I've just received the details for AyaCon 5, the next edition of the successful UK anime and manga convention which always proves popular. AyaCon 5 will be held from 19-21 August 2005. Their venue will be the Warwick Arts Centre (University of Warwick near Coventry).

The convention will have use of the entire Arts Centre and extra faclities including a bar, restaurant and additional conference rooms, along with the full nightclub facilities in the nearby Students' Union for two parties on the Friday and Saturday evenings.
Full Story
Following the success of AmeCon using University Of Leicester facilities, along with UK anime convention attendance growing (with the last AyaCon being fully booked) I think they have made a good choice of venues, especially considering how tricky it can be finding a suitable sized and affordable venue to host an anime convention. After reading about all the faclities at the Warwick Arts Centre, AyaCon rightly state it's the largest and best-equipped venue for any UK anime convention to date.

The Otaku News Crew look forward to hearing more details about AyaCon as they become available, we will certainly register as members. We're also pondering who they will have as a guest of honour, the last AyaCon had Fred and Sarah from MegaTokyo, who both proved to be great guests.

Press release as follows:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

AYACON FIVE ANNOUNCES DATES, VENUE

The Aya Committee is pleased to announce that AyaCon Five, the latest of the Aya series of anime & manga conventions, will be held from 19-21 August 2005.

Venue:

AyaCon Five will be held at the Warwick Arts Centre, University of Warwick, near Coventry. The Warwick Arts Centre is the largest dedicated arts venue in the Midlands, containing a concert/exhibition hall with tiered seating for 1200, two theatres, a cinema, an art gallery, two bars and multiple conference rooms.

AyaCon will have use of the entire Arts Centre, plus the adjacent University building (the Rootes Building) containing a bar, restaurant and additional conference rooms. The Arts Centre complex represents the largest and best-equipped venue for any UK anime convention to date.

We will also have use of the full nightclub facilities in the nearby Students' Union for two parties on the Friday and Saturday evenings.

A complete listing of events to be held at AyaCon will be posted on the website (http://www.ayacon.org.uk) in due course.

Accommodation:

There will be approximately 1100 single rooms available on-site, the first 850 ensuite with bath and shower. This accommodation will cost 50 per night, and can be booked using credit/debit cards through a special webpage provided by Warwick Conferences (link under construction).

Registrations:

Registrations will open shortly, once final arrangements with the venue are complete. Prices will be 40 for a full weekend registration, and 20 for a one-day registration.
