This is the 10th year of Anime Milwaukee (AMKE), and we are proud to be providing the Milwaukee area with entertainment geared towards the anime and gaming communities. Last year we had over 9,000 attendees join us. AMKE is a three (3) day convention that operates at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Wisconsin Convention Center in Milwaukee.
Press access for Anime Milwaukee is a powerful tool, so, in order to prevent press passes from falling into the wrong hands, we limit the amount of badges any single publication may have, unless prior appropriate justifications are made with the Press Department Manager.
As we here at Anime Milwaukee issue press passes to respected members of the media free of charge, there will be follow-ups with each organization to assure we’re receiving an equal trade in valued publicity for your free admission to our event.
Are you interested in helping us push our event on your respected medias? Let your audiences know that you’ll be here.
