News for Sakura-Con 2007:

Sakura-Con announces first electronic Sakura-Conduit newsletter

Seattle, WA- 11-13-2006 Sakura-Con-the Pacific Northwest's oldest and most well attended anime convention- has created the first electronic Sakura-Conduit newsletter. The November issue of the Sakura-Conduit has newsletter first Guest announcements and an exclusive interview with a new Guest of honor-be sure to check it out for more surprises!

The Sakura-Conduit is a longstanding Sakura-Con tradition. It's been the first source for at convention information for years. But Sakura-Con has outgrown the Conduit's ability to reach members. It's just too difficult to distribute over 8,000 leaflets to a busy group of convention attendees. Rather than let the Sakura-Conduit die out we've decided to change the focus and delivery. Now, instead of at con information, the Sakura-Conduit will be used to extend the mission of ANCEA/Sakura-Con by keeping fans abreast of new Sakura-Con developments through out the year.

To get your copy of the Sakura-Conduit please visit our website at Soon, you can register to receive the Sakura-Conduit directly in your e-mail inbox!
