Hello to our Gold Level Sponsor
Our Sponsor/Vendor Liaison, Marie, has been a whirlwind of activity lining up a variety of sponsors for Enbicon 2019! Every time she posts to the organizer group we’re all amazed. This year we have sponsorship packages to help offset some of the costs (last year was the first time in memory that Enbicon actually came out slightly in the black which allowed us to purchase a domain name!).
Our Gold Level sponsor is a Canadian company called Libris Arcana. We will be mentioning them a bunch over the next several months and encourage everyone to take a look at their dice subscription service (I’m also really interested in the RPG subscription). As a thank you, Salon A will be referred to as the Libris Arcana Gaming Salon.
Located in Vancouver, they not only have monthly dice subscriptions,
but also an RPG book subscription. Our very own DMDon suggested that we
contact them, as he enjoys their dice subscription and thought that a
partnership with them would be a good fit. We are glad that they agreed!
On top of being a Canadian company, they also raise money for charity
through some of their sales: for 2$ more on their monthly dice
subscription, you can help share the love of D&D and other tabletop
RPG games with school aged kids. We do love a good charity! Check them
out at www.librisarcana.ca for more information!
Continuing to work on the webpage, figuring out what to include for content, layout, how frequently to update and all that other stuff. We’re hoping to include not only Enbicon updates but also updates on other conventions in New Brunswick as well as links to some fellow gamer blogs, podcasts and other things of interest to the gaming and cosplaying community.
Please bear with us as we continue to experiment with increasing Enbicon’s web presence and work hard to bring you the best gaming and cosplay experience we can!
As we start 2019, Enbicon 2019 is a mere 268 days away! Hopefully this webpage will be up and running shortly so you can see where we are with planning and what we want to accomplish in the next convention.
2018 saw a record year for the SPCA Auction and no matter what changes Enbicon goes through in terms of location, pricing, staffing, events and so on our intent is to always have the SPCA as our charity. It is as much a part of the convention as the Grand Melee is and it just wouldn’t be Enbicon with out the auction for the SPCA.
Our dates for 2019 are already penciled in (September 27-29 2019) at the Fredericton Inn. We think the space worked well in 2018 and are hopeful that we can continue to use the same space each year for a sense of consistency.
Once we have the website up and functional we’ll be starting to reach out to sponsors, including Die Hard Dice and Wormwood from 2018. We can’t express how awesome it is as organizers to receive support from larger companies like them.
So stay tuned for updates and opportunities as the year goes on and here’s to a successful 2019 convention.
