Welcome to the new website of Nom-con 2014!(17/10/13)
First off many thanks to everyone who came to last year’s Nom-con; The amazing staff, the committee, the guests, the traders, the sponsors and most importantly you the attendees who all make this convention possible. Overall the weekend seemed to go pretty well and we got some great feedback from everyone. If you do have any more feedback or suggestions or ideas please feel free to post them in the new forums.
Also big thanks to everyone who donated in to the Charity or just bought something in the maid cafe. We raised over €2,000 for Aid for Japan and that will go towards helping Japanese orphans in need.
At the end of September a new committee for Nom-con was elected. This year we've seen more new faces than ever before join the ranks while at the same time saying fond farewell to many of last year’s committee who did some great work and was really appreciated, you will be missed. That said there are still a couple of positions to fill and details of this will be announced very soon! To view this year’s committee and contact details please go to our Contact us page.
There's an enormous amount of work ahead of us and we've already been very busy the last few weeks! First off we are proud to announce our dates and venue for next year as being August 1st - 3rd in the Ballsbridge Hotel. Last time the staff at the hotel were very nice and the venue has a lot of potential in delivering a great convention so we decided to stick with it once again.
The old website had fallen on hard times and it was time for a change so here you can see the fruits of many weeks of labor from our new webmaster with a brand new updated website and forums, and we do hope you'll love it as much as we do. Our plan with the site is to keep it regularly updated with all the latest information and news on the convention and its smaller events so please check back regularly. Also we hope you'll like the new layout of the forum and help us getting it buzzing again by signing up and posting away! =)
This is only the beginning and we will have a lot more in store for you in the year that follows! Stay tuned for more updates! ;-)
-The Nom-con Committee
