Anime Convention

June 13-15, 2014 Cancelled
Sheraton Tampa East Hotel

It's with the heaviest of hearts that I am typing these words to you all. With just a fortnight left until Apex's premiere, we are deeply saddened to announce that we will have to cancel Anime Apex 2014. Due to several other events in the Tampa area having issues with their hotels, the Sheraton Tampa East hotel unexpectedly decided to ask for their entire payment at once and gave us only two days to deliver it. Sadly, there was just no way we were able to get the full amount in the minimal time alloted. For this, we could not be apologetic enough. We are still hopeful that we will be able to bring you the convention the community wants and deserves in the future; however, it will not be the weekend of June 13th, as we had anticipated.

The good news is that the convention isn't dead! We have already begun planning for Apex's re-premier! Please understand that this may take a bit. As I mentioned before, this pains me greatly. I hope everyone understands that this was beyond our control and I greatly appreciate everyone who had bought tickets and vendor/artist space. I am also terribly sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. So, until we have a new dates and a new home, all passes that have been bought will remain valid until the day of the new event. If you have purchased a Weekend Pass we will upgrade you to a free VIP Pass. If you've bought a VIP Pass we will upgrade you to a Founders Pass. As for Vendors and Artists, if you've already paid, we will hold your tables until the new event and you will also receive Weekend Passes.

We are sorry if this isn't what everyone wanted; however, we are doing everything with our power to make up for this.
