Picking up your badges
Registration will be located in Exhibit Hall A of the Overland Park Convention Center. For registration hours, please visit naka-kon.com/registration/registration-hours.
Each individual must pick up their own badge.
Also, be prepared to show ID if asked. This can be a driver’s license, state-issued identification card, or other official identification.
If you have purchased multiple badges and put your own name and contact information on more than one badge, only one of those badges will be valid. It is required that the name and contact information of the person who will wear the badge be provided. If you have entered your contact information on more than one record, contact firstname.lastname@example.org so we can help you fix this.
Please be aware that we will have an attendance cap of 6,000 people. Purchasing a badge in advance ensures your ability to attend Naka-Kon 2022. We will not overbook, so members who have pre-registered will be admitted. Online registration will be closed once the attendance cap is reached.
All badges will be distributed at registration during the convention. See badge pick-up for details.
Group Memberships, Educational Discounts & Military Discounts
Group Memberships, Educational Discounts and Military Discounts will not be available for the 2022 convention.
Single Day Badges
No Single Day Badges will be available for the 2022 convention.
All sales are final and we do not offer refunds no matter the reason. We recommend that you wait to purchase the badge until you are sure that your schedule and finances will work out for that weekend.
The deadline for badge transfers was April 30, 2022.
Your badge is valuable and it is your responsibility to keep it secure. Naka-Kon will not refund or replace badges that are lost or stolen. Attendees who lose their badges must purchase a replacement badge to re-enter the convention.
