Refunds
All sales are final and we do not offer refunds no matter the reason. Although purchasing pre-registration badges does save you money, we recommend that you wait to purchase the badge until you are sure that your schedule and finances will work out for that weekend.
Badge Transfers
If you cannot attend the convention, and would like to transfer your badge to someone else, you must complete a badge transfer form. The form must be mailed no later than midnight of January 15, 2017. You can also scan the form and send it as an e-mail attachment to registration@naka-kon.com. This form must be on file before the new owner will be considered valid. No badge transfers can be accepted after January 15.
Lost Badges
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.
