An anime convention is a somewhat loose term used to describe any event or gathering in a venue where the primary focus is on anime and manga as an industry or as a fan event. This event can take a variety of forms, but in most English speaking countries it is thought of a fan driven multi-day event gathering of fans to celebrate or participate in anime fandom with like minded people, usually at a large hotel's convention meeting space. Some have also been held on college campuses and dedicated conference/civic centers. It can also describe industry driven events in which studios and publishers hype their anime related releases, or even dealer-marketplace type events which are totally consumer based.
