Convention Location

Our anime convention will be held at the Intercontinental Times Square in New York, NY. This venue is easily accessible by both car and public transportation, in the heart of NYC. This venue is easily reachable from all over the New England area. Hotel rooms for the convention are available for attendees who want to stay overnight and enjoy convention events that last into the evening.

How to Attend

To attend, you need to register. This puts your name on our list, and you can pick up your badge/ticket at the convention. Tickets will sell out in advance if we reach enough attendees this year, so we highly encourage you to get yours early.

What to Expect

We organize a 3-day convention that includes panels, vendors, cosplay, and guests. You can browse our dealer room and artist alley for anime merchandise and buy and take home armfuls of swag. You can dress up like your favorite anime character and cosplay with friends. You can attend any of dozens of panels and events all weekend.

Attendee Tips

Cosplay is one of the most fun parts of the convention! Plan ahead for being able to change into your costume when you arrive, as it might not be a good idea to wear your costume to and from the convention unless it's under a jacket or something.
