How is AnimeFest Different?
We are run by a 501c3 non-profit charity with a mission to educate the public about world pop-culture. The event is run entirely by unpaid volunteers. We all have days jobs and do this in our spare time to help expand our mission.
If you register early and opt-in we can mail you your badge before the convention. This can save you considerable time when you arrive at the convention. You can get to the fun right away.
We are very selective of our volunteers and take quite a bit of time to train them on how to do their jobs. We emphasise the importance of care and compassion of our members. We do public data (violent-crime/sex offender) checks on all volunteers to better protect our members.
We have been running events since the early 1990s. This has given us a lot of time to refine our procedures and policies. Event management is a stressful job and experience is the key to running enjoyable events. We take member feedback seriously and strive to improve year after year.
We utilize the latest technologies to ensure that members have the information and support they need. This includes our new mobile-first website, mobile app, NFC badges, digital signage, personalized badges, and self-registration kiosks.
