Less than two weeks since it was announced that Anime Evolution 2008 was postponed due to loss of venue, a new venue has been found for the original convention dates.

Last night it was announced that Anime Evolution 2008 will still be happening from August 22nd through 24th, but now it will be held at the University of British Columbia. Further details are still being worked out and will be available when Anime Evolution's web site is updated.

Thanks to forum user Bryguy for the update.

I'm glad that I visit this site on a regular basis...I didn't even know of the postponement or relocation news...

...and you guys are guests?! That's surprising!

Well, I'm glad it ultimately worked out and will (hopefully) only have a marginal affect on the plans of guests and attendees.

Yes, I only learned of the changes through this site and the ACML; I've tried to contact the staff but haven't received any respone yet. I'm guessing that they've been scrambling ever since the loss of the first venue, but it certainly threw a wrench in our plans for a few weeks (not to mention all of the press that our publicist had lined up). I'm sure someone will officially let us know of the venue change soon...or hope so at least!
