Fans from all over the region are headed for Singapore for Asia’s biggest Japanese Pop Culture event! C3AFA Singapore 2019 is scheduled for the 29th of November to the 1st of December 2019 at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre, this is the big one — so make sure you survive!
Have a budget and stick with it!
Probably the hardest thing about C3AFASG is going apeshit and spending all your money in one go! Practice a little self-control — go around the booths first to spot the best deals, biggest bargains, and most value for money before deciding to hand over your hard-earned cash. And it’s not an option, then maybe saving up a little more spending money if your only choice.
Pre-order all the things!
If you’re the sort of person who can’t stick with a budget, then just pre-order all the things you love so that you know exactly how much you have come con day! The good thing about pre-ordering items is that they also come with bundle deals, as well as assure you that you will never get sold out of your favourite items!
Queueing is a fact of life for anime fans, so you might as well arrive early and beat out other fans. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes to lessen the discomfort, and bring your smartphone or mobile gaming device to lessen the boredom. Last but not least, make friends with the next person in the queue! You never know — this may be the start of a beautiful friendship!
Have a booth game plan! And don’t forget Plan B!
Check out the floor plan and stage schedule online if you can, or grab one of the event guides they pass around at the exhibition hall entrance. Make a hit list of the booths you want to visit, or the stage events you want to attend. Be flexible enough to go with a plan B or plan C if your top priority doesn’t work out. Also, be polite and considerate to your fellow attendees — don’t run or shove people aside at the event.
Relax and enjoy yourself!
Yes, the crowds can be stressful, some fellow fans may be a bit rude, and not everyone has the best manners, but the important thing is to relax and enjoy the experience. A little kindness and understanding goes a long way, and with everybody’s patience and graciousness everyone can have an amazing C3AFASG!
