Nan Desu Kan (NDK) is proud to announce the success of NDK's Rave2Save, a one-night-only fundraiser to benefit the Japanese Red Cross. The event raised a total of $13,440, which includes the dollar-for-dollar match by the Rocky Mountain Anime Association (RMAA), the parent nonprofit organization of NDK.

NDK will welcome back voice actors and fan favorites Todd Haberkorn, Patrick Seitz and Chris Cason, as well as Kevin McKeever, Steve Yun and Tommy Yune with the Robotech Convention Tour. “In 15 years, we've grown from a small festival held in a student union to becoming Colorado's largest convention,” said Amanda Liebermann, executive director. “The first round of people we're announcing this year have become part of NDK's heart and our family.”
The Robotech Convention Tour will make its annual stop in Denver with Creative Director Tommy Yune, Webmaster Steve Yun and Marketing Coordinator Kevin McKeever. Additional guest news, including Japanese guests, is forthcoming. NDK's venue, The Denver Marriott Tech Center, is already sold out for 2011. To help ensure the comfort of NDK attendees and the quality of the convention, NDK will be enforcing an attendance cap of 7,500 per day. “This will be our first year with an attendance cap,” said Liebermann.

“This decision was not made lightly, but we are determined to keep our small-convention feel despite our growth. An attendance cap will ensure NDK's quality for years to come.”
A good trend in the convention world in the past few years has been the rise of the fall conventions. Nan Desu Kan, New York Comic-Con and the Long Beach Comic-Con all take place in the fall and have really helped balance out the year or con goers.Information on the attendance cap and overflow hotels is available on http://ndkdenver.org.
It's tough for people to appreciate via the photos on Facebook but these shows are HUGE! They are often just packed with people wall to wall and its a good time of year to do con going. I enjoy conventions in the fall and Nan Desu Kan is a great one to go.
