Convention Facilities

In 2016, AnimeNEXT moved from its humble home in the Garden State Exhibit Center in Somerset, NJ, to the Atlantic City Convention Center in Atlantic City, NJ. While we were sad to leave Somerset, we’re now in a larger facility that gives us plenty of room to grow into for years to come!
