HOBOKEN, NEW JERSEY April 5, 2010. Due to the exponential increase in pre-registered guests this year, Castle Point Anime Convention has decided to limit the total number of guests to 2000 people to avoid overcrowding at the convention.

Pre-registration spots are quickly filling up, and CPAC staff members have limited the total number pre-registration tickets to 1500 people. CPAC will still be selling tickets at the door the day of the convention, but spots will be limited and no individual or group discount tickets will be available.

CPAC staff members advise that anyone who has not yet registered for CPAC to do so as soon as possible. As always, pre-registration tickets are $10 for individuals with a group discount of $40 for 5 people. If you are unable to pre-register, please show up early to the convention to secure your spot.
