General Registration

This is the simplest way to find all the necessary information for all the various registration processes for FanimeCon. Badges are the first step to enjoying the convention and they are necessary for all attendees, dealers, industry, and press. So long as you have a badge of your own, you can enjoy everything FanimeCon has to offer!

Lost Badge Policy

In the event that you lose or misplace your badge, please check with Lost & Found to see if it has been found and returned. If your badge has not been returned, then you may request a replacement badge at the cost of half of your original ticket purchase price. If you lose or misplace your badge a second time (assuming it has not been returned to Lost & Found), you will be charged the full price for a badge replacement. A replacement badge will invalidate your original badge, and there are NO refunds for your replacement badge if you should find your original badge.

Attendee Registration

Attendees can only take part in the convention’s activities so long as they hold an attendee badge. You can purchase a FanimeCon badge through our online registration and pick it up at the convention.

If you have any questions about registration or the process, please view the Registration FAQ.
