DaiCon 2009 day 2

Going to an event both as an exhibitor and as an official blogger was a good idea, or so I thought. Unfortunately it didn’t work out so well. It might have been possible at other conventions, but with the stage partitioned off from the booth area, this was pretty much a no go.

Miss Chihara Minori’s Q&A

As 6pm rolled around, the much anticipated special guest of DaiCon – Chihara Minori’s Q&A and autograph signing session finally began.

Massive DaiCon update!

DaiCon. Daikon. Its funny, you're supposed to laugh.

DaiCon is just around the corner, and there has been a final flurry of updates from the committee. Probably the most important thing is this:

Due to MMU security policy, all visitors to the university MUST be registered at the entrance, but we’ve managed to lift that requirement by using a special Visitor’s DaiCon pass! Please download the pass from our website, print it out on a piece of A4 paper and place it on your vehicles dashboard to gain hassle-free entry to our university! The pass also allows your vehicles access to the Visitor’s Parking Bays during DaiCon, so please keep it there at all times during our event!

Make things easier for yourself and do that, and tell your friends who are going as well! More updates after the jump.
