It was less than a year ago that The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational concluded its landmark 11th season, celebrating over 5 glorious years of "the most extreme Asian culture fusion festival" the Universe has ever seen. It also marked the birth of "a new generation of celebration" with the addition of more Co-Coordinators, tweaked festivities, & a more greatly enhanced relationship with our venue, The Rotunda. Since that fateful weekend in May 2011, we've been working feverishly on feedback we've received from our fans, combined with brand new opportunities, to produce what the world shall know as TAKII 13 ~United We Stand~! Returning to Philly's own The Rotunda on May 26th & 27th, 2012, our FREE ENTRY 13th season looks brightly towards the future with a spirit of life, love, & fusion festival equality.
In order to kick off this season right, we have revamped our #1 Contender's Pass & Vendor Table Slot pre-regging with even more nifty features & incentives! With the purchase of a Vendor Table Slot, you gain the invaluable ability to sell your swag, show off your art, promote your organizations, & you earn free #1 Contender's Passes in the process. When you pre-reg for a #1 Contender's Pass, you earn the right to participate in ALL of our "Pass-Exclusive" festivities (without paying $5 per festivity), gain access to a limited edition of our Hardcore Handbook, & are cordially invited to our post-TAKII "Domo Arigatou" party! When you pre-reg for a Pass, or a Slot, you also are automatically entered into a special drawing for prizes such as additional Contender's Passes & Table Slots, sponsor-themed gift packs, & special savings (that don't ever expire)!! The improvements by our Team TAKII Registration Coalition don't stop there, as Cheryl "Aquamarine" Snyder (a TAKII fanatic since the beginning & a highly-talented freelance artist) has recently joined the Team & will now be in charge of ushering in BRAND NEW BADGE DESIGNS that will incorporate more of an "originally extreme" flavor The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is & has been known for.
To take advantage of our lowest rates ($10.00 per Pass, $50.00 per Table Slot), please visit our "Registration" section ASAP! Our 1 & only pre-reg deadline ends May 19th, 2012. After that, #1 Contender's Passes will be available during TAKII 13 weekend at the price of $15.00 per Pass, while Vendor Table Slots will have been sold out.
No gathering of crazed otaku worth its name in Pocky would exist without major fan participation, something that The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational has been an innovator of for the past 5+ years. As such, we warmly encourage you all to be guests/performers, or even panelists at TAKII 13 ~United We Stand~!
