News for Middle Tennessee Anime Convention 2006:

MTAC announces overflow hotels and 2007 location

Nashville, TN - The Middle Tennessee Anime Convention is gearing up for it's sixth year in fine style!

2006 Overflow Hotels:
With thousands of anime fans descending on Nashville on April 21st, the Embassy Suites housing MTAC 6th Period is bursting at the seams! Our room block is exceeding capacity and there are still hundreds of people seeking rooms! To accommodate, MTAC has made arrangements with 3 nearby hotels to provide special MTAC room rates! Within walking distance is the beautiful Franklin Marriott. Rooms are available at a special MTAC rate of $125/night with the booking code "MPOMPOA".

The Wingate Inn and AmeriSuites, both within convenient driving distance, are providing a room rate of $89 for patrons requesting the "MTAC Conference Rate". Both hotels also include breakfast and shuttle services. On all shuttle service, breakfast, and other amenities, guests should contact the hotel for specific schedules and details. These hotels will not be obligated to offer the MTAC rate beyond March 21st. For more details concerning overflow hotels, visit the MTAC website.

MTAC 2007 Venue AND Dates:
MTAC is growing! We've already outgrown our 2006 venue and the convention hasn't even happened yet! With this in mind we set out to find a new home for MTAC in 2007. The good news is we found it - right around the corner! The Middle Tennessee Anime Convention is proud to announce the Franklin Marriott and Cool Springs Conference Center as its home in '07! The Marriott is a beautiful hotel and boasts more space, rooms, and guest accommodations than any previous MTAC venue! MTAC will be making the Marriott its home on April 13th - 15th of 2007! That's right, we start on lucky 13 and wrap up on tax day!

Volunteer Updates:
As always, MTAC is accepting volunteers for the upcoming event. Volunteering is a great way to make MTAC even more special for you and your fellow fans. Volunteers get in free, and only have to work 10 hours- so join us for our last two volunteer meetings on March 11th, 2006 at 2:00 PM and April 8th, 2006 at 2:00 PM! Both meetings will be taking place at the Franklin Marriott - home of MTAC 2007!
