Today, the database has passed the 8,000 convention mark. The database began in October 2003 as part of, but expanded beyond anime conventions with the creation of in early 2012.

The 8,000th convention to be added was Anime Milwaukee 2017 which is scheduled to take place in February 2017 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. It will be Anime Milwaukee's tenth year.

Although the database now has over 8,000 conventions, there are still a lot more out there. Any convention organizers who don't see their conventions listed can submit them. After the submission is reviewed for accuracy, the information will be added.

The site also has a database of guests which recently hit 6,100 guests with the addition of Matt Smith. (No, not THAT Matt Smith, a different one.)

All of the data available through and its affiliated sites has been painstakingly entered by hand by unpaid volunteers with an appreciation and love for conventions.

Behind the scenes, and are currently in the process of being re-written from the ground up. The new sites will not only present an updated UI with a mobile-responsive interface and improve the functionality of some existing features such as the user-submitted convention rating system. The new sites will also offer a number of new features which will be announced at a later date.

Patrick Delahanty is the creator of,, and executive producer of AnimeCons TV. He has personally entered a majority of the database information himself.</p>
