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.
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.
You can pick up your badge at the Registration Will Call desk during the convention.
You may pick up pre-registration badges for other people with a front and back photocopy of your friend's ID (see above for acceptable IDs) and a copy of their Eventbrite confirmation message.
You may also purchase badges for friends at Naka-Kon with a front and back photocopy of their ID.
No. Children age 12 and younger must be accompanied by an adult who is age 18 or older and has a convention badge. The adult escort must be present when the child badge is picked up at registration.
Group discounts will be available online until Jan. 31, 2017. No group registrations will be available after that date. Group discount registrations are available for groups of seven or more attendees. All group badges must be purchased at the same time. Members of groups must pick up their own individual badges, unless a request for group collection is made on the registration form. If badges are bundled together for group collection, only the group leader may collect the badges.
Starting this year group members may pick up badges individually, unless the group leader has requested bundled delivery. If the group leader indicates that badges will be picked up as a group, only the group leader or an alternate may collect the group badges. Groups leaders and group members should make sure they are all on the same page in regard to how badges are to be collected.
No. Group discounts are only available for 7 people or more. All group registrations must be made at the same time.
Some activities such as the Maid Cafe and Formal Gala are not included in the price of convention badges, and tickets for these events must be purchased separately.

No. We do not mail badges. Please come to the Registration Will Call table in the OPCC Exhibit Hall A to collect your badge.
Confirmation e-mail messages were sent to all of the e-mail addresses given on the online registration form. However, some of these addresses are undeliverable due to typos, closed accounts and other issues beyond our control. When you register, make sure you give us a working e-mail address where we can contact you.
Each badge allows the holder to experience a full weekend or full day of activities and events. Professional sporting and entertainment events with similar or higher prices may only last two to three hours, and not have as wide a spectrum of activities. In addition, all badge purchases go directly to funding the convention to pay for hotel space, purchasing panel and event equipment, and accommodating special guests. Badge costs for each year are based on the cost of running the convention and the number of people expected to attend. To save a few dollars, we highly recommend that attendees pre-register.
All I really want to go to is the [place your choice of event/area here]. Can I just pay for that and not pay for the full badge?
No. This would cause many challenges in both the production and operation of the convention. We understand that the value of a badge and what one can get out of it will change from person to person. However, we highly recommend that you attend other panels and events. You may be pleasantly surprised by what you find.
You may give or sell your badge to someone who can attend, but you must request a Badge Transfer form from Naka-Kon Registration, then submit the completed form so we can transfer the registration. If the transfer is not in our records, the recipient will not be able to pick up the badge.
