Excerpts from Press Release:

A new anime convention is currently in the early planning stages for launch in the Baltimore, MD area. Kun Sun Sweeley, president of NeoAniCon is proud to announce the planning of NeoAniCon that will be launched in the Baltimore, MD area with help from some members from the Forum and some personal friends. The date for NeoAniCon is unknown at this time but we have plans on launching it on the month that Spring Break occurs on. To our current knowledge, there are no conventions held in the Baltimore area during the month of Spring Break. We are actively searching for a possible location to hold the convention, we're currently looking at hotels in downtown Baltimore. We also are in need of acquiring funding for our convention. There are immediate plans to file a U.S. Trademark application to the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to protect the name of our convention and to register for the official website of our convention as soon as we obtain funding for the convention. We know the cost of filing a U.S. Trademark costs $335, registering a domain name varies in cost depending on what registration service we use. We are also actively seeking staff members to work with the convention. The following positions are currently available and people can select what position they want to work on. There is a limit of people who can be in one position, 5 people in one position is the minimum, 10 people in one position is the maximum.
