TIP: Buy early! Badges purchased early will be mailed out to USA and Canada. Badge prices also increase as the date for Anime Expo draws near, so be sure to get your badge early!
Buying a badge onsite or day-of: Onsite purchases will be higher than purchasing a badge online. If you still wish to purchase onsite, you may do so during registration hours on Days 1-4.
There will be lines.
With over 100,000 people at AX interested in many of the same things you are, expect lines for panels, autograph sessions, food, buying merch at booths in the Exhibit Hall, and more. Be cognizant of which panel rooms will be cleared between event and which ones won't. Check the program room policies and/or event descriptions for more information.
Remember, there’s only so much time in a day (or weekend).
We work very hard to bring a wide variety of events, panels, and activities to Anime Expo. As much as we’d love to share them all with all of attendees, it’s likely that you won’t be able to do or see everything. With multiple events and panels running at the same time, you may have to make some hard choices.
Take care of yourself.
If you missed the cutoff date for badge mailing or are visiting from outside the US/Canada, you will need to pick up your badge onsite:
TIP: Be careful not to lose your badge! If you do, getting a replacement will cost an additional fee.
