7/19/2015: As you may have heard, OtakUtopia, the retailor who sponsors Glass City Con, has ceased operations and the owners (including Con Organizer Chris) have gone their seperate ways. Chris has taken Glass City Con under the new Glass City Con LLC banner, and has opened the con's brand new retail division, BUF's Otaku Stop, which will be selling the same great stuff at your favorite cons. Even better, a percentrage of each sale goes to help the con grow!
This will have some impacts on pre-registration goodies. We will not be able to offer discounts or coupons for the OtakUtopia booth, as it doesn't exist anymore. We're looking at other options to make up for this, so stay tuned!
