What is AmeCon?
AmeCon is a longstanding UK based convention dedicated to Japanese Anime and Manga, run by fans, for the fans.
Each AmeCon runs for 3 days and is crammed full of great events of all flavours, from cosplay workshops and masquerades, attendee run panels and guests, all the way to fan run skits in the AmeCon Omake.
Every evening we round up with a party, so after you've had a day of geeking out, you can have a drink and dance the night away.
But don't take our word for it, why not join us on the forum or social media? You'll find plenty of friendly like-minded AmeCon regulars to interact with.
So what is AmeChibi?
In Spring 2015 our first AmeChibi will be running and it will be a little different. We're still AmeCon, and we're still dedicated to Japanese Anime and Manga. AmeChibi brings all you expect from AmeCon but the smaller size means a cosier venue, with less of that pesky walking around! So a smaller event, still jam packed with awesome panels, parties and people awaits!
AmeChibi is heading to the heart of Nottingham. Running in the extremely central Britannia Hotel Nottingham, should you desire a meal out with friends, any restaurant you can dream of is in walking distance.
AmeChibi will run all its main events and popular pastimes on the the lower floors, while the top floor, with its scenic views, is reserved for fan run events, the video room and convention operations.
