An individual registration is $40 through September 4th, 2012. Save even more by registering with a group of 10 or more! For more information on registering for Zenkaikon 2013 visit our website's registration information page: http://www.zenkaikon.com/registration/

Since you're coming, you probably need a room. Rooms can be booked at the Lancaster Marriott at Penns Square for $119/night (Single-Quad). Visit our hotel page for more infomation and booking info: http://www.zenkaikon.com/general/hotels.php

The great thing about the hotel is that it is directly connected to the convention center. Just take the escalators or elevators down and join in on the fun!

Do you have what it takes?

Zenkaikon is looking for enthusiastic, dedicated staff to help us celebrate our seventh annual convention. There are currently positions available in several departments, so if you’ve been interested in learning about the inner workings of a fandom convention, now is a perfect chance! Zenkaikon staff are volunteers who help plan and work at the convention, and are a crucial part of the event!

You may remember last year when Zenkaikon sponsored the anime track at Philcon — a local science fiction, fantasy, and horror convention. We’re happy to announce that Zenkaikon will be returning to Philcon again in 2012! We’re working with premiere panelists from both Philcon and Zenkaikon to help put together an exciting and educational program of anime and manga-themed panels, and thanks to our friends at FUNimation, there will be a number of screenings as well. A more specific schedule will be released closer to the convention.

Philcon is the oldest science fiction convention in the United States, and will be holding its 76th annual event on November 9-11, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Cherry Hill. Philcon features cutting-edge programming about literature, art, television, film, anime, comics, science, gaming, costuming and cosplay, music, and other topics of interest to fans of sci-fi, fantasy, and horror. Other attractions include an Art Show and Auction, a Vendor Room, Family Programming appropriate for children, a Writers Workshop with professional authors and editors, concerts, a Ball, a Masquerade Costume Competition, and more.

Adult memberships are currently available for $40 on the Philcon website. Memberships for students and military are $25, and there is a $20 children’s membership. More information is available at http://2012.philcon.org.

We hope you’ll join us at Philcon in November and at Zenkaikon in March!

Zenkaikon has negotiated a reduced rate of $5/day parking in the parking garage adjacent to the hotel. There is a walkway that connects the garage and the hotel. And the parking can be added to your hotel bill if you so choose. For more information check out our hotel information page: http://zenkaikon.com/general/hotels.php
