Winnipeg Convention Center
375 York Avenue
Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3C 3J3

Originally held at the University of Manitoba campus, the growth of the convention necessitated a move to a larger, more accessible facility; first the Sheraton hotel in downtown Winnipeg, to its current location at the Winnipeg Convention Centre. Once a UMAnime sanctioned event, Ai-Kon is now run by a nonprofit organization consisting of an independant board of volunteers who are dedicated to making the convention a memorable time for all who attend (And in a good way!).

Ai-Kon is a three-day event held during the summer, which runs around the clock from start to finish. Other than our focus on Japanese animation, comics and closely related media, the convention has branched off to include other events that have varying amounts of overlap with our attendees' interests. We host many anime convention staples, such as the cosplay masquerade, assorted video games with tournament prizes, and rooms for vendors and artists alike to showcase and sell their wares. Thanks to the diverse range of anime fans in the area, with each passing year we've been able to host panels and other events covering more ground in other semi-related areas, from Japanese Tea Ceremony and Aikido demonstrations from the Manitoba Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre to panels discussing the finer points of Go and ball-jointed dolls. Really, we have so much of the latter here, it's kind of unsettling!
