Welcome to the Live Event Submittion for Anime Central 2018! This year we have included Cosplay Gatherings into the Panel Request form to help us cross schedule our live events more efficiently. Please be sure to use the same username for each live event requested to help with mitigating scheduling issues that may occur. Each event can have up to two Co-Event runners associated with it. The Anime Central Programming team will do its best to honor requested times, but times/rooms/days are all subject to availability.
2017 saw an amazing line up of new and returning panels for attendees to enjoy. From new show reviews to exciting games, traveling to Japan to exploring the Japanese language. We sincerely hope you enjoyed all of our offerings this year!
We had a good influx of educational panels but would like to see even more for 2018. If you want to run a panel but are struggling to come up with an idea, please consider one of the topics listed here:
We were very excited to see Children’s Programming have such an amazing reception in 2017! From the games and crafts to the second annual Children’s Costume Parade, we had a lot of amazing experiences and so much fun! We are very excited to continue growing our programming for the younger generation of fans that join us each year. If you have an idea for something that you feel our 14 and under crowd would enjoy learning about Japan or Anime please submit your ideas through our Panel Application and make sure to indicate that it’s a Children’s Programming panel! If you would like to host a Children’s panel but are struggling to come up with an idea, please consider one of the topics listed here:
Children’s Space Guidelines
Children age 14 and under may participate in Children’s Programming activities and events
All children must be accompanied by an adult (no more than 4 children to an adult)
Children left unattended will be turned over to the Rosemont Police for parents to be contacted
Adults may assist the children they accompany with the activities they wish to participate in, but may not create their own. This is to allow for more children to participate and avoid a shortage in activities through the weekend.
No cursing, inappropriate conversations, rude behavior will be tolerated
Adults not maintaining control over the children they are accompanying will be asked to remove themselves and the children they accompany from the Children’s Programming space
Looking to catch someone cosplaying from your favorite series or care to join in with fellow fans of your chosen cosplay, here’s the spot for you.
