Ichibancon 13 Event Report

See what was up at the Kawa booth during the 4-day event!

Kawa Entertainment flew to the East Coast for the first time to participate at Ichibancon 13, an annual event in Concord, North Carolina during the weekend of January 12-15, 2023.

Elara was invited to Ichibancon as a featured guest, and Kawa facilitated her panels, digital meet & greets, and merch sales!

Aside from bringing in the goods, Kawa has also set up meet and greets featuring its very own Koziichu and Kota Kotonya, as well as Tiffany Witcher, Otakemaru Bubs, RuZuu, and Kerimara.

Elara and Kawa staff Muu worked together to present 3 panels:

  • VTuber 101
  • Social Media Management, and
  • VTuber Tech

The majority of the content was prepared to spread knowledge of VTubers and how to get started. Many attendees made time to come up to the table afterwards to ask more questions, like an unofficial VTuber Consultation corner.

The best part of the convention experience are the fans each VTuber met along the way. One attendee brought Elara not only a custom printed mug, but a bag of her favorite candy—Twizzlers—as a treat.

One Fan asked the ultimate question around closing: "What would he need to do in order to take home the Elara banner?" Well, a lifetime supply of Twizzlers is a small price to pay, don't you think?

Kawa Entertainment's next convention appearance will be at Ikkicon (Kalahari Resorts, Round Rock, Texas) from January 20-22. Stay tuned!
