Overload 2017 Sponsorship
Overload is a NZ Comic and Manga Convention where young local comic and manga Artists, generally aged between 15 and 25 years, can exhibit and sell their artwork to the public, with plenty of exciting events such as competitions, art exhibition and genuine Anime/Manga goodies for sale. Overload has a strong anti-piracy policy. Sponsors at the venue are schools and business entities having a commercial presence at Overload to market, promote and trade.
Overload committee has been holding Overload events since 2006. It is a non-profit voluntary group under the direction of Anime NZ Ltd. All sponsorship fees are used to cover the running costs of the convention.
The initial aim of Overload was to give New Zealand Anime and Manga artists an opportunity to showcase their artworks. While this is still the underlying theme which runs throughout Overload, the event itself has grown to include many different avenues of Anime and Manga fandom, which has created a festival atmosphere. We generally have more female exhibitors register for Overload. Most of them are students in college, Art schools such as the Animation College NZ, and Universities. While Overload aims to be a family event, the age groups most seen fall into the 15 to 25 bracket. We get a few more female visitors to Overload than male, which we feel is due to females enjoying and engaging with exhibitors (artists) and Cosplay activity. Last year we had about 3000 visitors in total, about 25% increase from 2015 and about 40% were non-Asians.
Sponsors have booths arranged around the periphery of the venue providing easy access for attendees and generous frontage for sponsor advertising and product placement. You can see the location of the booths at this link.
