Working with the Sheraton Hotel, Overland Park Convention Center, and the City of Overland Park, it was decided to not hold Naka-Kon 2020 the weekend of March 13-15, 2020.

Due to scheduling constraints, we have decided rather than postpone until later to instead cancel Naka-Kon 2020, and concentrate our efforts on developing Naka-Kon 2021. This decision is based on the information we have regarding logistics and availability of our facilities.

This decision was very difficult to make, but we feel is the best course of action for continuing our mission of providing a quality celebration of Japanese popular culture.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact

However, due to the extenuating circumstances presented by the current COVID-19 outbreak, we are waiving our refund policy. We are also providing the option of rolling 2020 Memberships over to the 2021 convention in lieu of a refund. Please complete this form to let us know what you wish to do. If no reply to the form is given by March 27, 2020, then purchased badges will be automatically deferred and valid for Naka-Kon 2021. Badge refunds will start processing shortly but please be aware that due to the number of refunds involved it will likely be a couple weeks before all refunds are processed.

We appreciate your support for Naka-Kon and we will see you in 2021!

Registration Hours

Badge Pick-Up

All badges will be distributed at the convention. Naka-Kon does not mail out convention badges.

Registration services will be located in Exhibit Hall A of the Overland Park Convention Center.

If you have registered and paid online, look for signs directing you to the Will Call table.

If you plan to pay for your badge with cash at the convention, look for signs directing you to Badge Sales.

If you plan to pay for your badge with a credit or debit card, we urge you to register online on our Eventbrite page. Those who purchase online can use the Will Call line to collect their badges, which takes much less time than registering and paying at the door.

Pre-registration name badges can be picked up at the Registration Will Call table starting at 4 p.m., Thursday, March 12.
Badge pick up will also be available daily March 13–15.
