When it comes to Registration, you have two options. Either you may pre-register online, or register at the convention. Each has different procedures for picking up your membership badge, so please carefully read through the applicable set of instructions!

Definitions:

  • Pre-Registration – You purchased your membership online before the convention, or at an event before the convention. You will have a confirmation email from Eventbrite¬†in your email inbox as proof of purchase. Your membership is a 3-day membership, meaning you can attend the convention for all three days from open to close. You will also be able to pick up your membership starting on Thursday before the convention.
  • At-the-Door Registration – You are purchasing your membership at the convention. You may purchase a 1, 2, or 3 day membership when you arrive. Please note memberships will only be available for the day you purchase them. I.e:
    • Thursday Night: 3 day memberships only available
    • Friday: 3 day memberships, Friday & Saturday (2 day) and Friday only memberships are available
    • Saturday: Saturday & Sunday (2 day) and Saturday only memberships are available
    • Sunday: Sunday only memberships are available.
