Behind every great season that is The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is a wonderful group of Team TAKII Coalition Members (volunteers, sponsors, & affiliates) who spearhead & proudly produce our "Vendor Festivities"! Festivity mainstays, such as "Community Centrale" & "Dealer's Dominion", are a favorite destination for all TAKII fanatics as their primary source for the best fan community interaction & best selection of swag in all of Asian-themed culture fandom! With new festivity initiatives like "Project "DATTE" (Delivering Assistance To The Extreme)" & "Auction Royale", it is certainly safe to say that there will always be something different for everyone to enjoy at every season of TAKII's "Vendor Festivities". For this dynamically-sensational season of "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival", let's take a moment to preview the greatness that awaits us all this season:
Making its return in time for TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational proudly & humbly presents to the world "Project "DATTE" (Delivering Assistance To The Extreme)"! It's "the world's most extreme Asian culture fusion festival"'s answer to your typical host club auction, but with some exciting twists & turns. How it works is fairly simple: TAKII will rely on nominations from its fans (through email, our official Forum, etc.) on what individuals, or smaller groups (as compared to larger, standard Charity Beneficiaries), would stand to benefit the most from personalized, substancial support from the festival & its Team TAKII Sponsors & Affiliates (which could come in the form of everything from industry donations, food donations, exclusive trips, & everything-in-between ^_^). Afterwards, all Team TAKII Coalition Members will debate & vote on which individual(s)/group(s) will become our "Project "DATTE"" Awards Recipient(s) & what their level of donated support will be! Those Awards Recipients will then be honored on the official TAKII website, in addition to live at the festival itself, & will be presented with their "Project "DATTE"" swag. To insure "Project "DATTE"" endures for this & future seasons of our festival, we lovingly encourage everyone to become Team TAKII Coalition Members today!!!!

Just like most everything else, The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational is always looking for new ways to push the envelope, or raise the bar of excellent for one's fan experience. With that being said, TAKII 16 is going to be bringing back the portion of the festival we all like to call "Community Centrale"! This piece of programming at TAKII will only be as good as YOU, the TAKII faithful, make it. In what can be considered an artist alley hybrid, "Community Centrale" will be your chance to show off your stuff, promote your club, sell artwork, debut a documentary, & much more! Space for this sort of thing is available for a fee on a limited quantity/time basis, so the sooner you get yourselves over to the "Registration" section of the TAKII website & register for a Slot, the more likely you are at securing yourselves a spot.

With "Raffle Royale", you have an opportunity to get that awesome swag you saw at "Dealer's Dominion" (or as provided by this season's Team TAKII Sponsors & Affiliates), but for only a fraction of the cost! Tickets can be purchased from designated areas located at TAKII 16's venue at a bargain of $1.00 for 2 tickets. Drawings will be held periodically throughout the duration of the fusion festival, with no limit being placed on how much you can win. To make things even more interesting, if you win & are able to correctly answer an Asian culture trivia question, then you get your ticket recycled for the next drawing! Can YOU handle the awesomeness that is "Raffle Royale"!? Ganbatte, minna-san!!
As 1 of The Asian Karaoke Idol Invitational's newest traditions, "Auction Centrale" gives fusion festival fanatics amazing opportunities to wager their hard-earned money on collections of items, with a portion of the proceeds going towards our "Charity Beneficiaries" for TAKII 16 ~Cho-ho-ho-cobo~!
