The OtakonŽ 2015 convention will be held at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland from Friday, July 24 through Sunday, July 26, 2015. As a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of East Asian culture and film, we attract a broad base of attendees who are always eager to hear of companies and products that appeal to their interests. At the convention, program guides are handed out in packets to each attendee, guaranteeing a high level of visibility. We also have a mobile app version of our guide through Guidebook. We had over 33,000 unique attendees in 2014.
We expect the program guide to be a 72 page, full color, saddle bound, 8" x 10.5" booklet. Pages are glossy and full bleed. As was the case in 2014, our program guide provides not only information about Otakon, but also content aimed at the interests of the attendee and other points of interest in the Baltimore area. The program guide will be formatted in the style of a magazine, with multiple sections and articles to encourage the attendees to view the booklet as a valuable source of information throughout the days of the convention and after.
