World Cosplay Summit looks forward to sharing all the excitement, competition and fabulous costumes with everyone at ACen 2014. A Letter from the WCS US to our ACen Fans! Greetings to ACen from the World Cosplay Summit! In 2014, we have teamed up to make this convention the home of the US National Finals event. World Cosplay Summit is an international competition founded in 2003 which invites teams from around the world to showcase their talents in a special event on Japanese television. The Nation Finals are where pairs-teams from across the country bring their best costume craftsmanship and short skits to the stage and compete for the honor to represent the United States internationally! It is a unique opportunity for cosplayers and fans alike, as we will be witnessing some of the most skillful cosplay and impressive performances. See characters from your favorite anime, manga and video games brought to life like never before! We hope to see you there out in the audience, and we want to hear you cheering for your favorite regional qualifier teams! See you at ACen for the excitement! - Laura Butler and the US National Staff About World Cosplay Summit The World Cosplay Summit was launched in 2003 by Japanese television station TV Aichi to promote the international exchange of the Japanese youth culture of manga and anime.

  9. ACen to Host WCS US Finals

    noon to 2 :)
  10. Free promotional bookmarks

    you can email advertising@ACen.org for bag stuffing, though it is much past our deadline.
  11. Floor plan hopefully?...

    We have many new spaces this year located all over the convention center, both first floor and second floor. they are fully accessible, it is just an area where music will be played, all open.
  12. Disability (ADA) access to areas.

    There is every year a maps meeting. No that door will not be an entrance and an exit. It is Exit only from the Convention Hall. It is far too congested for that exit to be both, and far to unsafe for it to be both and entrance and an exit. You can enter the convention floor through the hall A entrance which is the main entrance to the Exhibit Hall.
