AmeCon 2016 will be running for the first time at the Warwick Art Centre, University of Warwick, Coventry. Many seasoned convention goers may remember this venue from previous AyaCon events. It's a great venue with plenty of space to run an amazing convention at. The venue has an array of internal shops and restaurants, so you can purchase any supplies you may need.
By far the best feature of the Warwick Art Centre is the Butterworth Hall; with its large stage, tiered seating and true theatre atmosphere, it makes a great site for the cosplay and staged events.
