General Registration

This is the simplest way to find all the necessary information for 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 the convention in any way you please. Don’t hesitate to register, as the closer it gets to the convention the more expensive it will be to join the fun!

We ask that all members attending FanimeCon follow our Code of Conduct and that all cosplayers follow our Cosplay Rules and Weapons Policy.

Attendee Registration

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