Become a Sponsor


Thank you for considering a sponsorship of our Anime and Japanese Cultural Convention. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit, all the funds we raise are spent on putting on our events so your sponsorship directly results in something about our convention becoming better. Your sponsorship benefits you through straightforward access to over a thousand anime enthusiasts each year. We can offer the following opportunities:

Level 1 Con-wide Sponsor - $500

Your logo will be on our 4”x6” flyers used as our primary advertising.
You get one full page in our convention guidebook.
You get a large image on our website, and generally when we do suitable advertising.
All sponsors at this level will have the opportunity to submit an image of your choosing to be used in a “screen-saver” rotation on our main events video screens, screen time is at the discretion of our video operators.
You get two weekend passes.
You may briefly speak in opening ceremonies to describe and promote your organization only.
You may set up your own <6' table in a hallway at a spot assigned by our Vendor Coordinator, but you may not sell physical goods from this table.

Specific Event Sponsor - $100 and/or merchandise to be given away or used at the event

Any event on our live online schedule except for the Koto sessions and the Maid Cafe are open for this. Examples are the Costume Craftsmanship Contest, Food Wars, Lolita Tea Party, Kids Crafts, etc.

One one-day pass for the day of the event you're sponsoring.
Your name and logos will be prominently displayed as appropriate at the event itself, and in social media event pages promoting the event.

Hospitality Floor Sponsor

For this, you would only need to purchase a hotel room on the Hospitality Floor of the Marriott using the links on our website, and you are welcome to promote your organization from that room. Note that access to the floor requires a con badge.

Badge Lanyard Sponsor

Anime Iwai issues full color personalized and custom printed badges for all our attendees and vendors. They use year specific original artwork and are intended to be a collectible item.
Lanyards for these badges can be sponsored by first collaborating with our art department on a design that features both your graphics and Anime Iwai's, and then purchasing and having the printed lanyards delivered to us before registration. We expect to issue 800-1000 badges this year.
