The Biggest Arisia Ever

Dear Arisia community,

Although we increased our membership cap this year due to the new hotel's size and space considerations, there is still a cap in effect. Current registration projections suggest that we may actually hit that cap this year. Please check the Arisia website before heading to the convention if you intend only to be here for a day, and please preregister if you intend to be here for the weekend. The main page of our website,, will be updated as appropriate.

We look forward to seeing you at con! Thanks!
