Archives for August 2015
We are getting a lot of requests from people trying to sell their ticket to someone else or people who’ve purchased a ticket from someone else. Please take note that tickets are bound by name, but that altering the administration, in particular of a partial purchase (i.E.: “I want to transfer only my Sunday Ticket, and keep the rest”) takes time. As we are in the final moments before the convention begins, we won’t have time to assist in this anymore and have no choice but to refer to our terms and conditions in this, in which is stated that transferring a registration (or part thereof) to a new owner is only possible up to a week before Abunai! starts. As such we can no longer accept and process these requests.
For many years we hear of visitors getting lost in the corridors of Abunai! and of hallways being too crowded. One of the biggest causes of both these issues is the corridor near the entrance right behind our karaoke. Its small path and twists are far from ideal to escort people onto the rest of the convention.
However due to Abunai!’s expansion a new route has opened up. Last year’s Cloakroom has made place for a nice and wide path to the rest of the convention, opening up at the Mangakissa.
In the map you can see the 2 paths, #1 being the old path (which can still be used!) and #2 being the new wide and open path.
If you still get lost you can always consult your map or ask our friendly gophers / staff.
Today the last remaining tickets for Sunday August 30th were sold, meaning that both the Saturday and Sunday tickets are now officially sold out. These options are no longer available for purchase. It is also not possible to purchase these tickets at the door.
There are still some Friday tickets left, however there is a chance they will be sold out as well before the convention starts. If you are planning on visiting on Friday, we recommend you make a reservation in our online ticket booth beforehand, which you can pay upon check-in.
Heads-up for everyone who did not register for a Sunday ticket yet: Ticket sales for the Sunday are nearing it’s sold-out point. If you did not get your ticket yet, don’t wait too long!
If a day gets sold out you won’t be able to buy tickets at the door for that day either. So if you want to be ensured access to the convention, do reserve your tickets online now!
On Friday, the 14th of August, the door prices for our tickets will be put in order. At that time, we will also close registrations for the dinner buffet, so get your cheap tickets and your dinner vouchers before then! At this time we’ll close the sales for Aniway Magazine and the Aniway Agenda’s as well, though you can always visit the Aniway stand in our Dealer Room if you’re interested in one of these.
A limited amount of dinner vouchers will also be for sale at our check-in at Abunai! (pending availability).
As some of you might know NH Koningshof contains an indoor pool which is freely accessible for guests staying at the hotel. However please be advised that the hotel requests that cosplay outfits and / or wigs stay out of the pool. We understand that some of you are planning pool photo shoots, so we figured we’d give you a heads up on this beforehand, so that you are able to make alternative plans.
Sugar, Spice and… wait? no! NOOOOO!!!! *runs*
Come check out the trailer for the opening film for “Abunai! 2015: Sugar, Spice and Everything Nice”.
Part One will be shown during the Opening Ceremony on Friday, and Part Two during the Closing Ceremony on Sunday.
If you are unable to attend either (or both), don’t worry. It will be available online after the convention so you can check it back!
Following our previous announcement, the Saturday ticket sales really sky rocketed and are now officially sold out.
We are of course very happy to hear that so many people want to attend Abunai!, but unfortunately there is also a downside. If you did not acquire a Saturday ticket (whether paid or reserved) yet, it will not be possible to get one anymore, not by online registration and not at the door. Of course, you are still more than welcome to visit us on Friday or Sunday.
Heads-up for everyone who did not register for a ticket yet: Ticket sales for the Saturday are nearing it’s sold-out point, and with this also “All Weekend” tickets. If you did not get your ticket yet, don’t wait too long!
If a day gets sold out you also won’t be able to get tickets at the door for that day (including “All Weekend” tickets which of course include that day). So if you want to be ensured access to the convention, do reserve your tickets online now!
