CPM Sponsors Con Events

Recently Nigorimasen blog has reported that "During CPM’s panel at last December’s NYAF/ICv2 Conference on Anime and Manga, President John O’Donnell said that one major cause of their troubles was the collapse of retailers Musicland and Tower Records and that he’s never tried to engage in a “heavy bidding war over popular titles in a volatile market”. Nigorimasen Blog also writes that Central Park Media has been keeping their name alive by sponsoring con events in 2008. CPM has spent "$3,200 to sponsor four events during Anime Expo 2008 including the Otaku Parliamentary Debate ($1,000) and the two-evening Karaoke Contest ($950), warranting them Patron status". CPM has plans to sponsor con events in 2009 as well.
