The 7th year of Ireland's largest and longest-running anime convention will take place once again in The Helix, a purpose-built event venue 10 minutes from the centre of Dublin. Eirtakon was first held in The Helix in 2010 and proved to be a massive success; with 2011 the committee has secured use of the entire venue for the full weekend - guaranteeing this year to be the biggest anime event ever seen in Ireland!
Eirtakon 2011 is moving back to its traditional timeslot of the second weekend of November, the weekend of the 11th - 13th. This year will be bigger again, with more events, more speakers, more exclusive anime screenings, more special guests and an even better experience at Ireland's largest anime weekend!
"We're very excited to finally open pre-registration for Eirtakon 2011,” said Seán Hand, Eirtakon 2011's Convention Director. “We're all working very hard on making this the best Eirtakon yet and will be making plenty of more amazing announcements during the summer!”
Work is already well underway in making sure this year's event will be bigger than ever before and more enjoyable than ever. The committee is looking forward to announcing our guest of honour over the coming months, in addition to plenty of special events that you just won't find anywhere else.
Look out for more announcements on our to-be-announced guest of honour, traders, cosplay competitions, new events, and up-to-the-minute info on all the activities that will be taking place over the weekend of November 11th – 13th!
