Convention Safety Initiative

Dear FanimeCon Members,

Over the years, FanimeCon has grown substantially from our small club roots to one of the largest anime conventions in North America. Along the way, we’ve experienced growing pains like any other convention or event. The staff of FanimeCon has worked diligently to always provide a safe and welcoming environment for all of our members. In the interest of further promoting safety for the FanimeCon community, access to the second floor of the convention center will require a FanimeCon Badge.

Some key benefits to this policy change:

  • Un-badged wanderers from outside our community are prohibited from entering the second floor of the convention center. We hope that this measure will create a safer environment for the FanimeCon community to enjoy our programming and events.
  • You may have noticed that the lines for many of our events and programming have gotten longer with the increase in attendance. As a result, getting everyone inside is taking longer. This new initiative will allow FanimeCon attendees to simply have their badge checked once at the entrance to the second floor. This will allow attendees to freely enjoy events and programming.

Some Major Changes:

  • The layout of the Convention will change a bit. Full details of the changes of locations and affected programming will be provided on the website, social media accounts, and the forums as well as all maps that FanimeCon will provide.

We thank you all in advance for your patience and understanding as we implement this new initiative. We welcome any and all feedback as we all come together to make this upcoming year another amazing and successful FanimeCon!
