Full Story
Press release as follows:

Mindbridge Foundation Announces New Anime Convention

Bettendorf, IA – November 6, 2009 – Mindbridge Foundation, the organization behind much of sci-fi, anime, and fantasy fandom in eastern Iowa, is pleased to announce that it has created the first ever weekend anime convention in the Quad Cities of Iowa/Illinois, called QC Anime-zing!. The convention will be held from June 18-20, 2010 in The Lodge Hotel in Bettendorf, IA.

This three-day convention will be a celebration of Japanese animation, manga, and culture. Activities will include multiple panels and workshops, a dance, a masquerade cosplay contest, a consuite, video game tournaments, anime screenings, a dealer's room, and an artists alley. The convention plans to book voice actor guests of honor to do panels and provide more entertainment for attendees.

The convention's venue, The Lodge Hotel, brings a distinct fantasy feel to the event. The Lodge's Victorian castle theme creates a majestic atmosphere for convention attendees where big, poofy dresses will fit in well right next to maids and butlers – many original steampunk characters will fit in especially well.

The convention is fully backed and structurally supported by the Mindbridge Foundation, an eastern Iowa organization dedicated to promoting science-fiction, fantasy, games, and anime. Mindbridge also organizes AnimeIowa in Coralville, IA, along with two additional annual conventions. Mindbridge has run over 50 conventions over the years.

"We are absolutely ecstatic to bring an anime convention to the Quad Cities," said Project Executive Patrick Murphy. "There are a lot of people in the immediate area that are already thrilled."

Anyone wishing to learn more or get involved with the convention is welcome to attend any meeting of the Mindbridge Foundation or QC Anime-zing!, and can find out more via the website at www.qcanimezing.com.
