Just wanted to update this thread for next year.
No Brand Con is Wisconsin's longest running and premiere anime/gaming convention that first started in 2002. We'll be having our eleventh convention in 2012.
The dates are from May 4-6, 2012 at the Plaza Hotel and Suites in Eau Claire, WI which is about an hour east of Minneapolis/St. Paul in Western Wisconsin right off I-94.
As always, we've got everything you could want including anime viewing rooms, video game room, portable gaming lounge, free play arcade machines, table gaming room, artist's alley, vendor room, cosplay contest, fan panels, Friday night rock show, Saturday night dance, Sunday variety show, and our exclusive No Mercy Room allowing attendees to mock (MST3K style) some of the worst movies and shows ever to grace a screen!
Preregistration will be opening up here in early June, so feel free to check out our website at http://www.nobrandcon.com
