May 6th 2012

Limited Edition-Japan Passport Inspired-Collectors Passport Provides More than Just Fast Pass Access for This Summer's Most Anticipated Animation, Music and Manga Convention in Southern California

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (May 4, 2012) –AM2 proudly unveils the Limited Edition-Japan Passport Inspired-Collector's Edition Passport cover for this year's highly anticipated summer event June 15-17, 2012 that will be held in sunny Southern California (Anaheim, California). More info and convention registration can be found at www.am2con.org

In addition to “fast pass” benefits at the convention and all the discounts for theme parks and local restaurants, this year's Passport will include information, maps, main event schedules as well as stamping and autograph sections to make each Passport a personal and unique commemorative keepsake for 3-Day attendees.

“AM2 will the place to be this summer-with amazing Guests of Honors, fun unique programming, artist alley, workshops, panels, arcade, console/tabletop game-rooms, cosplay events, concerts and more,” states convention representative Chase Wang, “We hope you all will join us! Get a Passport and enjoy not only what the event can provide but also all the discounts throughout Southern California!”

3 Day Passport Holders that also stay within the official hotel room block will be treated to a “private” panel/meet-and-greet with Guests of Honor during the convention—the official hotel is the Anaheim Hilton Hotel.

Please note that ALL Guest of Honor activities (i.e. panels, autographs, appearances, etc.) are ALL Passport preferred activities. There will also be a private Meet & Greet event for each Guest of Honor EXCLUSIVELY for Attendees that are 3 Day Passport Holders and Anaheim Hilton Room Block Attendees (room key proof is required).

Please note that ALL film premiere events (i.e. ACE ATTORNEY, KAIBUTSU-KUN, KAIJI 2, etc.) will consist of an initial First screening (Passport ONLY & Hotel Priority) and a 2nd Screening (Passport Preferred & General Audience). All screenings are based upon seat availability.
