As we are getting closer to Atsusacon 2013 it’s time to make ourselves more visible.
To do that, we need your help. We are looking for people that want to put up posters on various location to promote our event.
If you are interested in doing so, please let us know either through a PM, a message through our site or a mail to one of our mails (preferably email@example.com though ;) ).
As some of you may have noticed this weekend, you are now able to by tickets online right here on our Facebook page and on our website.
After lots of thought and consideration as to where we want to go with our event we decided we wanted to really be different from the other (bigger) events in Belgium. We want to really put the focus on activities such as traditional activities, card games like Yu-Gi-Oh, sports, lectures, etc., in other words a real convention.
Unfortunately there is a downside to organizing all those activities when you are still building a name for yourself. That downside is funding it all. We still have vendors but that only covers a part of the cost. To be able to bring you more activities and of a high quality we have decided to increment the ticket price.
The ticket prices are as followed (online: excl. handling and transaction cost):
- 1 day: €10
- 2 days: €15
- 1 day: €13
- 2 days: €18
You are now also able to buy your tickets at a free record shop near you.
(above prices are excl. Free Record Shop handling costs).
Don’t forget to pay us a visit at Tsunacon coming weekend. We’ll be posting more updates in regards to Atsusacon 2013 as of now, especially in regards to the activities.
We hope to see you at Atsusacon 2013.
Atsusacon 2013 is coming next summer! Mark July 20 and 21 2013 on your calendar. Location stays the same.
Our second edition was success and thus a third edition needs to happen. At our third edition you can expect better service, activities and much more. We learn every day, every month on how to improve the experience for you.
Atsusacon 2012 received more visitors, had more space and activities and this will be further extended to the next year. We had guest speakers, workshops, the Japanese cultural center was present again to provide traditional games and workshops such as a thee ceremony.
In short, Atsusacon 2013 is a logical evolution.
You can expect more info as the time moves forward towards this major event.
See you soon!

Atsusacon is behind us. Just like last year it was a wild ride. We had more dealers, more room, more activities, etc. In short more of everything (incl. more rain).
While you enjoyed yourselves, the artists and dealers were spending the entire weekend selling their goods, talking to their fans and just having a good time.
Our partner the Japanese cultural Center made sure you could enjoy traditional Japanese activities in a calm environment with the occasional beats of the Taikonauts.
The cosplay competition on both days created fun for young and old and two foodstands provided refreshments.
Thank you for being part of our event and see you all soon!
We are entering the week of Atsusacon 2012 and with that we also put the final pieces of information on our website.
There will be two food stands, one in the hall which will sell regular food such as hotdodgs and soft drinks and a another one that will sell Japanese oriented food like Rice crackers, thee, etc.
Just like last year we will have vendors that will sell merchandise. They are placed in the hall. Together with them are DDR, Shiatsu and games as well as a few other conventions such as @Tsunacon.
Something else is coming back as well. The Japanese Cultural Center, now with a bit more traditional activities such as Kodo. Of course their amazing taikonauts are back as well.
For those that like to play cards, -and no, not the regular cards- we have provided some room for Yu-Gi-Oh! and Cardfight!! vanguard. It’s located between the first and second floor of the Meeting Center. For those more experienced with Yu-Gi-Oh! there is a tournament planned on Sunday. For an afternoon full of fun and excitement we only ask one euro.
Everyone that has some old stuff that they wish to sell, can do just that. Bring all your stuff with the accompanying paper (http://atsusacon.be/uploads/BringAndBuyAtsusacon2012.pdf) to the first floor of the Meeting Center and Mataki will try to sell it for a reasonable price to the visitors of the convention.
Other things that are worth mentioning, are:
- Sports clubs
- Cosplay (competition)!
- Photo booth
I hope everyone will have a good time!
See you at Atsusacon!
