SUKOSHI CON PRIME WRAP-UP!
Another Sukoshi Con has come and gone! We would like to take this moment to say thank you to everyone that came out to Sukoshi Con PRIME!. We hope that you had as much fun attending our event, as we did putting it on for you.
"I want to personally thank everyone that attended our December event. The smiling faces, and sight of socializing Anime fans, remind me why my team and I do what we do. I know many of you have emailed, and messaged me about returning to Birmingham, AL. Well here it is! Sukoshi Con: PRIME will be back in April 2014. We have already signed a deal with the same venue to have three 1-day shows a year: April, August, December! Stay tuned to the SUKOSHI CON Facebook Page or the Sukoshi Con website for more info."

PRESS RELEASE REGARDING DESTINATION ANIME!
Due to the changing landscape in the Florida Panhandle convention circuit, Destination Anime will be changing to a SUMMER convention in 2015.
Sukoshi Con Chairman James Carroll comments, "New conventions are emerging, old ones are returning, others are relocating to the area, with all operating around 4th Quarter, and winter months. We believe moving to the Summer will prove beneficial to everyone by giving attendees more options throughout the year and alleviating oversaturation of the market."
Destination Anime 2014
will still be held in January at the Emerald Coast Convention Center
, but will change from a 3-day event to a 1-day
event on Saturday, January 4th, 2014
. Confirmed guests include Voice Actor Blake Shepard
(Air Gear, Angel Beats) and Cosplay guest Jessie Pridemore
. The official convention hotel rate will remain $54.99 per night. Ticket prices are $20.00 pre-reg through January 1st, and $30.00 at door.
All pre-reg tickets purchased above $20.00 will be given a refund of the difference. Sukoshi Con will also offer a full refund for attendees wishing to cancel. Vendors will receive 50% off booth space. Artist Alley pricing will remain unchanged.
For all general inquiries pertaining to Destination Anime, please email email@example.com
