Hello friends and family,

The world today has its own unique challenges and requirements to ensure we can deliver you the best Anime Iwai experience ever November Friday November 13th - Sunday 15th. As we prepare to celebrate our 5th year, our staff have been hard at work these last few months to bring the beginning of what that means together, especially as our world changes.

We have been monitoring all news and media outlets for updates in these modern times. First and foremost, the heath, safety, as well as the well being of our guests, attendees, vendor, artists, volunteers, and staff will always be our number one priority. We have been working closely with our venue, the Ft. Lauderdale Marriott , local, and state agencies to ensure we are able to follow all polices required to to ensure a safe environment in our planning process.

All of this being said, the convention is 6 months away. We will adapt and do what is best for our community always. In the event that Anime Iwai needs to be rescheduled to a later date, all tickets will be rolled over to rescheduled dates.  If we come to the conclusion that a cancellation is the best course of action, we will refund all 2020 tickets. In the mean time, we will continue to prepare our convention in the state of mind, that we are happening as normal. Thank you for taking the time to read this. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me at
