Important Registration Update

The Registration and Badge Policies have been updated. It is important that everyone reads them. The crucial items are:

  • Only persons with a badge are permitted within con space; the hallways past the registration table, the patio, dealers hall, and all programming rooms.
  • All attendees ages 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
  • Remember our registration cap is 3,500 this year. Registration will close upon reaching the cap, so we strongly recommend you pre-register. We cannot guarantee there will be available space through the weekend. **The only way to ensure you receive a badge is if you pre-register**

On that note, Pre-Registration closes May 31st, in less than a month.
