Anime Midwest returns with 10,000+ attendees to the Hyatt Regency O’hare and Rosemont Convention Center in Chicago!
Welcome to an official AnimeCon.org convention! Expect a jam-packed 3-day convention filled with cosplay, vendors, artists, anime screenings, panels, dealers, tutorials, lessons, workshops, voice acting, guests, autographs, video gaming, tabletop gaming, karaoke, and so much more.
== Cool Stuff ==
ConSweet – Filled with unlimited free ramen and rice for all attendees, plus free soda! We’re working on making this bigger and better this year, so that you can have a more and more fun convention on less and less money!
Video Gaming – An epic game room with your favorite games, and tournaments held all weekend long, some with special prizes.
Karaoke – Sing your heart out with your fellow fans and discover a cool way to make friends even if you’re not the best singer.
Anime Screenings – An Anime Convention should remember the anime, and we make sure to! In our video room you can see everything from new shows to old favorites, and it’s a great way to pass the time between panels (oh, wait, there usually isn’t any time between panels).
Special Guests – Our guests range from voice actors to musicians and beyond, and they bring you inside knowledge from the world of anime and Japanese culture (and sometimes even video gaming and sci-fi).
== How To Attend ==
Get your tickets on our website, and the earlier you get them, the cheaper they are. Most attendees register in advance to save time at the door, but you can also get your tickets at the convention. We highly encourage early registration to get the best deal and get in faster!
== Events and Schedule ==
The schedule will be posted on the website about 3-4 weeks prior to the convention. The schedule includes exact panel, workshop, Q&A session, and autograph session times, as well as the times for video game tournaments and tabletop tournaments, and more.
