To attend Anime-zing! you need to register either online, by mail, or at the convention. By registering early online, you get discounted access to all convention events and activities. Registering online is the same as buying a "ticket" to the conference. We will ask you to show us your ID when you arrive at the convention, and we will give you a badge (essentially a wearable ticket) that grants you access to all convention events. Badges are not mailed before the con - they are picked up at the convention upon arrival.
Can I attend for just one day?
Yes, and there are special at the door prices for single-day admission listed on the registration page above. We encourage you to consider coming for all three days to get the best experience! A full-weekend pass is pretty cheap if purchased in advance, and there are a heck of a lot of events. Single-day registration can not be purchased in advance, and must be got at the door.
Can I upgrade from a single day pass to a full weekend?
Certainly, single day badges to the anamazing convention can be upgraded for the difference between the one-day price and the weekend price.
When should I pre-register?
The sooner you register, the lower the admission price you pay. Online pre-registration is a very easy and quick way to pay. Many people register as early as possible to save as much as they can, but some also wait until they can be certain they know that they are able to attend the convention. We recommend registering as early as you can, because your early registration helps us plan a bigger and better weekend.
What do I get for registering?
Your registration gives you access to the entire anamazing convention, which includes a weekend of over 50 different events, access to our massive exhibit hall, access to our video screening rooms, access to our video gaming room, and access to free snacks at our ConSweet. At this time, none of the events cost extra to attend - any exceptions will be noted in the event description (though it goes without saying that you can buy things in the dealers room or one of our auction events). Your registration pays for the special guests of honor you can meet, food in the ConSweet, equipment, and everything that goes into putting an entire weekend of events together.
Can I register by mail?
The only way to register is online. Online registration is much faster, and more secure, and your data is instantly entered into our registration database. HOWEVER, if you are with a school group of 10+ people and the only way you can register is with a paper check, contact us for help and we'll take care of you.
What is a badge?
A badge is a plastic/paper card with your name and registration ticket number that lets you into convention events. You can pick up this badge, with a lanyard to wear it, at the registration desk when you get to the convention. The conference badge grants access to all events of the convention, but use of the badge is subject to all terms, conditions, and rules of the convention. Attending is a privilege, and badges can be revoked without refund for violation of the rules at any time by convention staff.
What should my "badge name" be?
A "badge name" is the name we print on your badge. Many people choose their character or cosplay names, or use their real names. Some people choose to use just their first names. Please limit your badge name to less than 20 characters. Space for us to print your name on the badge is limited.
Is there a group discount?
Yes, when 10 people or more register as a group (such as an anime club) you can get 10% off the current registration price per person. You need to email us for special instructions more than 35 days before the con, and all ten registrations must be paid for together online with a credit card (or with an official school check for school groups). Email with questions.
Is there a discount for children?
Yes. Children from 7 to 12 can get a weekend badge at the door for 30% off (usually rounded to the nearest $5) the price for adults, but children under 13 must be accompanied by a supervisory adult who also purchases a badge at the full adult price (max 2 children per adult). The single day price for children is the same as for adults, there is no discount for single day registration for children. Children under 7 are admitted free with the purchase of an adult registration. Children under 13 must be with an adult at all times.
Is there a discount for educators or teachers?
To make it easier for school groups to attend, teachers, or other licensed educators who are chaperoning a school group, can register for our convention for free by emailing us at least 35 days before the convention. We encourage groups to bring their teachers. Unfortunately since our convention reaches such a wide audience, only those individuals employed by a school/university/etc at least half-time are eligible for free admission.
Where do I get my badge?
You must pick up your badge (or register) at the registration desk, they will not be mailed. We request that you provide photo ID if you have pre-registered. There will be separate lines for pre-registration and at-con registration, please be sure to find the correct line.
How do I get registration confirmation?
We will email you with confirmation of your registration soon after registering, in most cases. Please save your PayPal receipt, as it can also serve as confirmation of your registration. You only need your ID to pick up your badge, you don't need your email (though it may speed up the process).
I pre-registered and can't make it this year, can I get a refund?
We can send you a refund, minus a $5 fee each, if the refund is requested both within 30 days of your registration and more than 30 days before the convention. We can not give refunds after 30 days. We do not transfer registrations to future years or other people, as you are buying a ticket that is non-transferable and non-refundable after 30 days. We do not allow badges to be resold, given away, or otherwise transferred to other individuals. Unfortunately allowing transfers or late-refunds is a significant amount of work that we could not instead put towards planning a better convention. See more.
Why should I pre-register?
Pre-registration helps us estimate the number of attendees we will have, and it helps us pay for things in advance. If you pre-register, we can invite more guests, buy more food for our free ConSweet, plan more entertainment, and a lot more. Oh, and you save money.
What do my convention registration costs go towards?
Your registration payments are used for a number of purposes to facilitate holding the convention, such as paying the hotel or convention center, bringing in VIP guests of honor, and getting equipment used during the convention. Early registration gets a discount, as we are often able to lower costs when we can more accurately estimate the number of people attending in advance. Your registration fees also help us put a large number of hours each week into planning the event.
What if I have questions about other things?
If your question is not answered, please check our website for a section that may answer your question. Only if you can not find the answer online, you should contact us.
