I wasn't able to stick around this year, but I'm also curious about next year's theme as well. :) Anyone?

Not sure if you all know, but 2014 will be Fanime's 20th anniversary. We are working on something special, so we will announce when all details are finalized. Thanks!

Ohmygawd I thought you were serious. I would have been really sad but it would have also been really funny.

The theme for next year's Clockwork Alchemy is "Alternate Empires".  Based on what I've read on the forums it seems like Fanime is doing their own separate theme for 2014?

No,no,no! Unless what I say makes makes absolutely perfect sense, don't take it seriously! XD

Although an accounting theme would have been laughs.

So... the Powers That Be are aware that 2014 will actually be the 21st Fanime, right?  20 years since the first Fanime in 1994, yes, but technically the 21st Fanime to be held.    Just want to make sure so that no one puts in writing that it's the 20th Fanime (which was this year) when it's just the 20th year anniversary :B

I know, probably obvious.  But still a curiosity I have that's nibbling at my mind.

Yes, we are aware of this. You can say the same thing about any anniversary, ex your first wedding anniversary is the 2nd time that date has come around that you were married.

Bless.
Fanime's only a year younger than me, and that's pretty awesome. I was there for Fanime's sweet 16, so I'm super excited to see what staff has in store for the con's second decade. I'll do all I can to staff as well this year--definitely want to help out! :)

SWEET.

I guess that means the 2015 theme should be obvious, but then, it is still (and should remain) a dry convention. XD  (although, a joke on the old dubs substituting juice or tea could be amusing)

Also, I could totally get behind an accounting theme, but that's because I like the look of well-tailored suits.   8)
Edit: And you know, there are enough salarymen in anime for this to be completely legit.

Just checking :).  I'm used to cons going by number, not year when talking about milestones such as this.  And especially since we do our staff year pins by number of Fanime events worked at and not year since beginning to work I just wanted to be sure as going by years since beginning rather than events occurred varies from that precedent.  I actually did have to explain to someone how it was my 10th year despite it being 2013 and my first year being 2004 so I could get my 10-year pin, though.

Although not to play devil's advocate, but the example given doesn't quite correlate.  Events are more likely to go by number of times it has come to pass (example: 1st annual, 2nd annual, 3rd annual, etc) where as things such as weddings, dating, etc are marked by how much time has passed since the first one (1 month anniversary, 1st year anniversary, 30th anniversary, etc).  Never seen anyone refer to those examples in terms of how many times a date has come to pass (counting the original date).  Now, granted, can get into "1st date, 2nd date, etc".  But I think I'm just opening a huge can of off-topic semantic worms if I keep going, haha!

Anywho, like I said: just wanted to be sure.  Not arguing against the use of it, just that I expect to not see anything saying it's the 20th Fanime and only things that say it's the 20th anniversary since it began in 1994 ;)

So naming wise, it's FanimeCon 21 next year (FCXXI).
Maybe a theme of blackjack/casino/James Bond/deck of cards/king or queen of hearts/etc...

For 20th anniversary, I remember WrestleMania XX's theme of "Where it All Begins...Again", which is appropriate for the new convention center expansion.
