2022 Overview

In the summer of 2022 Stardust Entertainment will be hosting Delta H Con 2022, the City of Houston’s only anime and gaming convention. Delta H Con will be bringing the citizens of Houston, Texas a quality and memorable experience with this unique and quickly growing convention.

Visitors and guests will be presented with over 200 hours of programming, featuring a plethora of activities relating to anime, manga, cartoons, Lolita and games. Numerous panels where attendees can learn more about this unique hobby and participate in various activities with panelists will be held in several panel rooms. Video rooms are set aside for viewing of various anime television series, original video animations, and films. In addition, celebrities and voice actors will be special guests of Delta H Con, and are eager to speak to and interact with their fans.

Anime and manga, the terms for cartoons and comics from Japan, is a highly popular hobby and interest for many Americans of all ages. Much like American cartoons and television shows, Anime features many genres including romantic comedy, slice-of-life, fantasy, horror, action-adventure, and science fiction. Famous series include Dragon Ball Z and Mobile Suit Gundam, and films such as Spirited Away.  In addition, Japan features a large number of electronic gaming companies such as Namco-Bandai, Sony, Square-Enix, Nintendo, and numerous others. The Con scene also attracts a large number of fans of non-Japanese series like Adventure Time, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, and the MS Paint webcomic Homestuck.

Like many other hobbies, this has inevitably led to conventions such as ours being established across the country to give fans a place to meet, exchange ideas and opinions, and discuss their favorite shows and games. Houston in particular presents a large opportunity for the anime and gaming scene due to its size, being the third largest city in the United States.

By becoming a sponsor of Delta H Con, you will be able to make yourself visible to convention guests, attendees, and visitors from all walks of life. This provides an opportunity to gain new customers and build positive and profitable relationships. In addition, exposure to the culture of anime fans and gamers may provide ideas and inspirations for marketing and advertising campaigns a company may undertake in the future.

Event Promotion

Based on our current working budget and our marketing research, we have created a marketing plan that we believe will spread awareness and generate interest in Delta H Con. This plan should not only appeal to previous attendees and encourage them to return, but also attract new customers who have not attended Delta H Con before.

Publicity

We have made available numerous press badges for any newspaper, magazine, or independent photographer who wishes to attend. These badges are available online at the Delta H Con Website.

In addition to press we also advertise at other Texas-based conventions by purchasing a table in their “artist alley” sections in order to draw more attention and spread awareness of Delta H Con at the state level. We advertise to local schools on mobile bus ads, radio stations in the Houston area, online targeted web ads. Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram keep our attendees engaged throughout the year.

Website

Delta H Con has a fully functioning and well maintained website that is updated as soon as new data is made available. The website provides information on badge prices, guests, panels, voice actors, Industry guests and convention rules. There are also forums in which questions can be answered, ideas can be suggested, and opinions on con programing can be shared. To date our website has reached over 149,629 people, 57% of which reside in the Greater Houston Area, and our reach is growing outside of the Houston Metro area and outside the state of Texas!
