The organizers for Seattle's Sakura-Con convention have announced that it will host WIT Studio founder and president Jōji Wada at the March 29-31 event.

Sakura-Con also revealed that it will host one of the qualifier rounds for the 2013 GunPla Builders World Cup.
Sakura-Con will be held at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle. The convention will also host animator/director Atsuko Ishizuka (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou), animator/designer Toshihiro Kawamoto, Psycho-Pass executive director Katsuyuki Motohiro and director Naoyoshi Shiotani, voice actress Ayumi Fujimura, Sword Art Online creator Reki Kawahara and musical guests Eir Aoi and Luna Haruna.
