The A Taste of Animethon Special Reunion FAQ

A Taste of Animethon (ATOA) 2018 takes place on January 14-15, 2022.

Further questions or feedback should be sent to and we will address them here when possible. Please note that not all plans have been finalised, and not all details can be shared.

How is parking in the area?

There’s plenty of parking in the area, both from several surface parking lots within close proximity of the Convention Centre, as well as plenty of underground parking that connects via underground pedways.

What about LRT access?

The closest station, Central Station, is three blocks from the Convention Centre. If we do have inclement weather, you can walk between them completely underground.

Where do I send comments / feedback / complaints / ideas (or anything else)?

Please send any feedback to Our staff are also fans of our convention, and we want to know how to make this a better experience for everyone.

Will there be enough places to eat?

Plans so far include a cafeteria on the Assembly Floor. Some of the food oulets in Canada Place should be open as well.

How will you facilitate access for people with disabilities (visible and otherwise)?

The Convention Centre does feature a slow, but accessible elevator. Due to its’ limited capacity, however, it is important that it be used only by those with mobility issues. If required, Convention Centre staff will escort those in need to the staff service elevators.

How will you ensure your patrons’ safety?

We always have our patrons’ safety in the forefront of our mind. We will be offering Safe Walks to nearby parking lots, LRT stations, and event partnered hotels. Our Safety Teams will be maintaining a constant presence around the Convention Centre. The Convention Centre's own security team is well-equipped to handle the demands we’ll place upon them.

What is being done for people want more affordable and closer accommodations?

We’ve already arranged for a blocks of room   with a nearby hotel, so check the event website under accommodations.

How can I help?

We’re always on the lookout for more staff. Check the Volunteer section of the event website for more details. There are some great perks to being staff like working long hours, being sore and tired, not getting enough sleep… wait…

Working our events will give you an insider's view into the organization and operation of a major festival. There are plenty of perks to being staff like the chance to pre-order our merchandise, early (X-Pass level) access to vendor hall (assuming your duties allow for it), and many others! You’ll learn new skills which are transferable to your current or future professional plans, and volunteering looks great on a resume!

As for the staff, we’re a fun, friendly bunch. Joining us is like being part of a massive, if weird, family. You’ll instantly have a huge network of friends always open to hearing from you and encouraging you to bring your own talents and skills into the community. You don’t even need to be the world’s biggest Anime or gaming fan.
