Anime Expo welcomes creators and trade professionals across anime and Japanese pop culture industries and is happy to provide an industry badge for approved individuals.
If you wish to attend as Industry, you must apply online — completing the full application by the due date. Applications submitted after the due date may not be reviewed. Please be sure to fill out the application as much as possible to ensure a smooth review process and improve the likelihood of getting approved for an Industry badge.
We encourage anyone interested in applying to apply early as the number of Industry badges is limited. Applications are reviewed individually in the order that they are received. Decisions are final and at SPJA’s sole discretion.
Please be aware that there is no onsite registration for industry badges.
We are unable to provide industry badges to non-relevant industries, students, cosplayers, or support staff such as administrative staff, facilities, IT, operations, QA, HR, or convention volunteer support staff.
