Antheria was a furry convention located in Redondo Beach, California, USA. Originally slated to be at the Westin Los Angeles Airport, the venue was changed to the Best Western Sunrise just over a week before the inaugural convention.[2]

The inspiration for the Antheria event was sparked in late 2009 by the board members of the management group Anthro International Entertainment, which owns and operates Antheria. The focus for the event is on "professionalism and quality". It is the stated goal of the Antheria staff to "continually bring a remarkable event of impeccable professionalism and integrity to the southern California area".[3]

[edit] Dissolution

While the organizers have yet to formally announce the dissolution of Antheria, no promotions have been made for a 2012 event, the official convention homepage displays only a black page, website material for Antheria 2010 has been deleted[9], and as of 20 June, 2012, the convention's Twitter feed's last tweet was on 27 September 2010. Numerous requests made in 2012 to '2', one of the convention organizers, to ascertain the convention's fate have not been answered.
