DANCE, DEATH RUMBLE!!! Auditions!
[ 44 days, 14 hours ago - 10-07-17 09:41 AM ]
Do you have a dying desire to perform on stage?

Do you also have an overwhelming desire to dance?

Well, as long as you dont mind a little DEATH with your dancing, then you should sign up to be in the cast for Tono Enterainment's new stage show: Dance, Death, Rumble!!!: The Mutual Killing Game!

..........

Monokuma from Danganronpa is back and launching a new killing game in order to plague the world with despair! Members of Team Voltron, the Ultimate Despair Girls, the Osomatsu Brothers, Michiko and Hatchin will be the unfortunate contestants for Monokuma’s brand new game. The rules for the Mutual Killing Dance game are quite simple. The fate of the contestants is determined by the Despair Wheel! The Despair Wheel has two options: DANCE or DEATH. If the wheel lands on DANCE, a contestant is required to dance; but, if the wheel lands on DEATH....then a contestant is required to die. The fight to survive will be difficult, but not as much as the fight to dance!

Will the contestants be able to stay hopeful and escape this cruel game?
Or, will they all become victims of despair?

Hurricane Irma Update!
[ 73 days, 5 hours ago - 09-08-17 06:43 PM ]
Hey Everyone,

Hurricane Irma is going to hit Florida pretty hard and we want everyone to take every possible precaution to make sure you are as safe as can possibly be under these circumstances.

At some point over the weekend, the Omni website will most likely go offline. This will probably be due to a lot of factors. We will do our best to restore things to normal operational status as soon as it is possible after the hurricane has passed. We will most likely be giving people updates on the Facebook page as to any information we can.

Please though, conventions are fun but your safety is way more important than anything else. At this time, we want everyone to take care of yourselves and others as much as possible. Please check if you are in a storm surge area and do not hesitate to move away from it as quickly as you can if you are. We cannot stress this enough. When the major danger is over, help anyone you can. Fans and cosplayers have been shown to have some of the biggest hearts when people are in need. There will possibly be many that will need you.

Lets all get through this together!

Thank you,

From everyone at Omni Fandom Expo.

Hi Everyone,

Just a quick update to say at that even though Studio Omni is full, the Exhibit Hall has yet to open for Vendor reservations.
We are working as fast as we can to get it laid out correctly and approved by the hotel and we should have everything set up very soon.

We will keep you updated as soon as we have more information for you!

Oh my goodness, friends!

It appears as though Studio Omni is nearly completely booked! If your application was approved and you do not have a table at this point, don't fret yet! Tables could still become available over time, so keep an eye on the site! I am going to do my best to make sure to keep you updated!

Omni Fandom Expo will be approving Studio OMNI applications on a case by case basis as they are submitted in order to ensure quality and diversity to attendees. Once a merchant/artist has been approved, they will then be notified and able to select their own booth space through the Omni Fandom Expo merchant system on OmniExpo.com.
