According to the AX FB page and forums, more info should be released about main events as far as ticket sales, policies and the venue for main events in the next week or two. My guess is that once all musical GoH are announced (Starmarie doesn't count as they are industry guests) they'll start posting up the info.

This is what I got from the AX forums:

I will report back if I hear anything from the Press/Industry Department.

Thank you for your patience and understanding! ^-^d
Press is taking some time...hopefully they don't decide things too late aka after the June 1st price increase.

Per Anime News Network it looks like the head of Trigger and some staff will be attending AX in addition to Megumi Han

Yeah, that definitely makes things a bit more promising for AX!

Thanks for the response. I hope they sort things out before the next pre-reg. increase, just in case some people don't get approved.

If they're really taking that long and they approve/deny everyone that has applied up to this point after June 1st, they should leave the pre-June 1st price up for like a week for those who got denied.

I'm not sure what to think. He's the first guy to fund an anime via crowd-funding, and he has one project I've at least heard of before, but I don't gravitate to his work.

Waiting for the rest of the announcements as well as who the other musical guest(s) might be

My friend's press registration was approved and received email confirmation in early May. He had to send in his credentials this year unlike previous years. Approval took like 2-3 weeks after the credentials were sent.

So how does one do that? I thought everything was set when I submitted my articles through the application.

Agreed. For 'North Americas largest anime convention', they're bringing low rates guest as someone who would either be added as a mini-guest instead of guest of honor, or if they were really desperate.

I wouldn't be surprise if another con took that title away from AX.

This is the new AX, we really don't have much of a choice except to either live with it or abandon it.

Fortunately for those local to the area there are tons of conventions throughout the year, and for those who come to AX from around the nation, or world, there are also lots of other good conventions one can attend if the new AX is not up to standard.

I wish things were different but it's basically one month away now. Unless they have some miracle announcements to save an otherwise lackluster guest list, I don't think anyone's going to go 'for the guests'.

In future years who can say whether it will continue to be the largest convention or not, I don't know if anyone really knows how important (or unimportant) a strong guest of honor list is to overall numbers.
