Thank you for your interest in supporting Zenkaikon in the form of advertising or sponsorship!
Zenkaikon currently offers advertising within our convention program book. This is a full-color booklet distributed to everyone who attends our convention. At least 5500 copies will be printed. The booklet contains guest biographies, programming descriptions, a local guide, and other information. It is an attendee's companion throughout the weekend. Many attendees also keep their program books after the event as souvenirs, or use them to collect autographs. Any leftover copies of the program book are distributed at Zenkaikon's promotional tables for the following year.
Below are the specifications for a program book ad:
- Quarter Page: 4.25x5.5" - $125
