Program Book Advertising
Why advertise in the Kumoricon program book?
Kumoricon, now entering its 6th year, is a fan-run convention dedicated to Japanese animation. Filled with three days of events, shows, contests, panels, and viewings celebrating anime and Japanese culture, Kumoricon is where fans arrive to immerse themselves and celebrate their shared interests and passions.
Advertising in the program book is an excellent opportunity to reach well over 3000 fans at one time. The program book not only contains information on every event, biographies of guests of honor, and convention artwork, but is also a special collector’s item kept as a souvenir of that year’s convention. Attendees will read it throughout all three days and keep it as a memory of the experience, ensuring that your advertising lives on for years to come.
The convention book is magazine-style and professionally printed in full color. Last year, Kumoricon had 3003 attendees, representing an increase of 33% from 2006, and we expect to continue growing at a comparable rate. Every attendee receives a program book upon entering.
