A new hotel convention for Oklahoma to promote Dealers and Artists alike and to bring about a renewed sense of community for Furries

AnthroExpo - Oklahoma's Premier Hotel Fur Con

Our Insight and Mission:

Community is at the forefront of our minds these days.  It's important for us to bring people together to celebrate our artistic ideals, differences, and embrace what makes us all individuals.

The Furry Fandom has been instrumental in allowing individuals to express themselves and to create some of the most diverse mixed media in the world.  Our focus is to take those individuals and celebrate them further through AnthroExpo.

Oklahoma has long been home to many outdoor Furry Conventions, and finally the call has been answered for us to open a hotel convention to allow the great members of our community and fandom to bring their ideas to life in an expo that will be unlike any other.  AnthroExpo strives to be the game-changer in Furry Conventions and bring about a renewed sense of community.

The funds we are raising with this Kickstarter are going to help us with overhead cost, operating cost, and venue cost in getting the first ever Oklahoma Hotel Furry Convention up and running. 

AnthroExpo LLC, the underlining organization running AnthroExpo, is operated by Brett Martin (Bresama LongDog) as CEO and Chairman of the Board, and Christopher Gay (Gr8oz) as Chief Operations Officer.  With over 20 years of experience of business management and community works, this team has been instrumental in guiding the board of directors to the highest caliber of success to bring about a successful convention. 

AnthroExpo, LLCs Mission Statement:

We believe in community and coming together

In support of the convention that wants to help support our community, our people, and our lifestyle; AnthroExpo aims to foster growth and acceptance among our peers.  We are the rally point for a bright future for our fandom.  Are you ready?

Risks and challenges

Risks include contract delays with venue selection, delays with artistic completion of items if there is a huge demand that goes above what we are expecting. Also, as with any coordinated convention event such as this, there are always possibilities of a event delay or cancellation. With any pledge or backing, please realize that there is risk associated. AnthroExpo LLC can not be held liable for these instances and all news relating to any risks or challenges will be shared with backers as they become apparent as our commitment to transparency.
