Jacksonville, FL, February 21, 2008: Forget everything you have come to expect from Anime and Gaming conventions. October 17-19 at the Renaissance Resort at the World Golf Village in St. Augustine, Florida a new breed of convention will arrive. Anime X Gamer Experience or 'EXP con' as it has been dubbed by the fans will focus on the Fan Experience and energy level through this year's theme: Rock Star Mentality.

Inspired by the conventions in the South East, the EXP staff gathered together to bring their own take on conventions to the North Florida area. "When I was searching for venues I never in my wildest dreams imagined we'd end up at the World Golf Renaissance." commented Rayne Sweat, Convention Chairman. "The venue is amazing, and with the 40,000 sq. ft of meeting space we are going to be able to do some great things here." As well as the large convention area, the World Golf Village will be showing Anime screenings at their IMAX theater for EXP guests who pre-register at the higher levels, as well as providing a fireworks show for a Japanese Festival-like experience.

Continuing the celebration and promotion of Japanese Animation, Manga, and Gaming in America, as well as other facets of Japanese culture Anime X Gamer Experience will strive to create an unforgettable experience for all ages.

The Anime X Gamer Experience Site has been launched! Visit us at Http://www.projectexp.org for information and sign up on the forums to provide feedback that we can use to improve the event.

I'm kind of disappointed that they don't have any actual gaming events listed... (Cosplay Rock Band is quite a stretch..).

=(

When every con in Florida merges together and forms the month long Florida Con, how many days will you be attending?

I just want to see how the Naruto/Star Trek con does, and if it goes down in flames as I suspect.
