No Brand Con Presents “The Quest” Part One

The No Brand Heroes are back for 2018! A team member returns from far away, and discovers another one is missing. Will the heroes answer the call to find their displaced comrade, or will Greenboy and Magical Girl Girl just play more tabletop roleplaying games? I mean, it’s pretty even odds with this group.

In any case, the adventure begins here!

Reminder: Don’t Forget to Book Your Hotel Room!

Have you booked your room for No Brand Con 2018 yet? Don’t worry, there’s still time. To do so, just call the Chula Vista’s reservation line at (844) 215-4027 and use the booking code F19802. Unfortunately, the Chula Vista cannot support discount codes through their website, so this is the only way to get in our block.

The Chula Vista often ends up housing multiple events, so space there may fill up before you know it. To make sure you get your spot and the $129 a night rate, you should reserve your room as soon as possible.

We hope to see you there!

The No Brand Con Road Show Heads to Anime Milwaukee 2018!

The No Brand Con Road Show is making another stop, and this time it’s at Anime Milwaukee! That’s right, we’re going to be in downtown Milwaukee this weekend (Feb. 16-18), as AMKE puts on its eleventh (and a half) convention at the Wisconsin Center and the connected Hyatt Regency.

If you find us while you’re there, we’d love to hang out and say hello. You can, of course, also preregister for No Brand Con 2018 at our Ambassador Table too for our Road Show price of only $20. This is likely our last stop before the con this year, so it may be your final chance to get this incredibly low rate!

If you’re coming to AMKE, we hope to see you there!

Interested in Joining No Brand Con Staff? Come to Our Open Meeting This Week!

No Brand Con is a completely volunteer run event, and we’re always looking for more people to join the team. Conventions like ours don’t happen without ordinary people like you (and me) pitching in, and if you’ve ever wanted to staff a convention now’s a great time to start.

This week on Thursday, February 8th, No Brand Con is having an open staff meeting for new members in Eau Claire, WI. It starts at 7:00pm in the Council Oak room of the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire’s Davies Center.

Joining staff has plenty of perks, and is frankly a ton of fun. Consider stopping by and get on the (metaphorical) train to awesome-town!

(Regular meetings continue at 8pm on Thursday nights at other locations – if you can’t make this meeting and would like to join staff please email us for more information)

Have You Considered Submitting a Panel to No Brand Con 2018?

A large part of any No Brand Con experience is, of course, the panels. Whether you’re trying to get the best cosplay tips, plunge into in-depth analysis of your favorite series, hear bizarre industry stories you’d never expect, or a plethora of other geeky topics, it’s the a great way to spend your time.

And while some of these panels are hosted by our amazing guests, a huge chunk of our programming is provided by our attendees themselves. Fan run panels by people like you often provide the highlights of the convention, and we couldn’t do this without them. We also consider time hosting a panel as “double Volunteer hours,” which means hosting an hour long panel counts as two hours of volunteer time.

If you’re interested in submitting a panel for No Brand Con 2018, you can head on over to our Panels page. There you’ll find the rules along with our online submission form.

We’re excited to find out what you want to do!

Announcing Our Black Friday to Cyber Monday Preregistration Sale!

We just got back from Daisho Con where quite a few people took advantage of our $20 special Road Show preregistration rate. We know not everyone can make it to any of the cons our team goes to throughout the year though, and it seemed unfair to never offer that deal to the rest of our attendees. With that in mind, and the apropos timing of the Holiday season, we have decided to run a Black Friday to Cyber Monday sale!

From Friday November 24th until Monday November 27th, you can preregister online for No Brand Con 2018 for just $20. That’s ten dollars less than our normal online price — heck, that’s getting a weekend badge for less than the at-door price of most of our day badges!

All you have to do to get the discount is go to our preregistration page between Friday and Monday, and you’ll find the lower price listed. This is our best rate for preregistration, so don’t miss your opportunity to take advantage of it!

The No Brand Con Road Show is Heading to Daisho Con 2017!

Hey all you No Brand Heroes! This weekend (November 17-19) we’re packing up and heading to the other anime convention in the Wisconsin Dells, Daisho Con! You can find us in the Ambassador Alley, where you can purchase preregistration for our discounted “road show” price of only $20!

That’s literally getting a weekend badge for less than the price of a day badge!

So if you’re in the Dells for a convention, consider stopping by and preregistering for another convention in the Dells. Heck, you should at least stop on by and say hello – we’d love to see you!

From the Archives – And the Rest of the No Brand Heroes

We’ve gone through quite a few members of the No Brand Heroes in this series, but honestly the team has a very deep bench. Doing write ups on every single one of them would take forever. So, to keep this from getting unwieldy, in this article, we’re going to cover the heroes who aren’t Duct Tape Boy, Greenboy, the Gardening Ninja, or Magical Girl Girl.

Some of these heroes have played vital, main roles over the years, while others have only played minor parts. But each and every single one of them is a full fledged member of the No Brand Heroes.

Well, except the couple who aren’t. Continue reading From the Archives – And the Rest of the No Brand Heroes
