Convention Wrap-Up and Feedback Form

Thank you all for a great Anime Fusion! This year was our biggest yet, with over 1500 attendees. If you lost anything during the weekend, don't forget to contact Operations to see if anyone turned it in at the Lost & Found. Our deepest gratitude goes to all of our wonderful volunteers and helpers, from those who spent hours at a badging station to anyone who simply held a door for a stranger. You're what makes Anime Fusion a pleasant place to be. We hope everyone had a great time at our third convention and we're looking forward to seeing you all again for Year Four: October 16-18, 2015. Mark your calendar!

Help us make the next Anime Fusion the best it can be by submitting your comments on the 2014 event. We take all feedback seriously, whether it's positive or critical, and do our best to improve our growing convention every year. We're always open to new ideas and suggestions. Send yours to us through the feedback form, now open for use:

Thanks again and see you in 2015!

Anime Fusion Badge Pick Up

Anime Fusion is coming! Are you ready? Below you will find some basic badge pick up tips.

Registration is located in the main lobby in the hotel, same as last year. You will follow the signs around the staircase and the lines will form where the old arcade used to be. One side will be for walk-up registrations, the other for pre-registered attendees. Due to space limitations, the line split will probably not go any farther back than the doors going into the courtyard. Beyond that, there will be one general line. There will be staffers present to help direct the line; they will help you get into the correct line whether you are pre-registered or are wanting to purchase a walk-up registration. The pre-registered badges will be sorted by last name, into 4 lines. When you get to the front of the pre-registered line, a staffer will direct you to the table that corresponds with your last name. A valid government-issued photo ID is required to be shown for anyone picking up an ADULT badge. If you don't have one, you will be issued a CHILD badge. Something like a school ID or a receipt are valid for picking up a CHILD badge. You may not pick up any one else's badge but your own, even if you have their ID.

IF YOU ARE A SPONSOR: Let a staffer know, regardless of where you are in line, that you are a sponsor, so you can be expedited to the sponsor badge pick up table. Expedited badge pickup is a sponsor perk! Sponsors will pick up their shirts and sponsor goodies at the merchandise table.

TRANSFERS: Ask to be sent to the help desk to be assisted with your transfer. Please have your form ready. It must be signed by the original registrant and the information we have on file must match what is on your form for the original registrant otherwise we can not process your transfer. We will also have forms on-site if you wish to transfer your membership right at the con.

WALK-UPS: We sell walk-up registrations! Our prices are as follows: Friday $15, Saturday: $25, Sunday: $10, and full weekend $40. Day passes are valid until 10 AM the following day. We accept cash, check, and credit cards.

Registration opens at 10 AM on Friday and is open until 9 PM. Saturday we are also open 10 AM-9 PM. Sunday our hours are 10 AM-3 PM. Pre-registered attendees can pick up their badges in con-ops when registration is closed. Walk-up registrations will not be sold and transfers will not be processed outside of our normal registration hours.

Look forward to seeing you all at our third year convention!

Registration Information

Review the following information to make sure you're prepared before heading out to the convention!

Upon arriving at the Ramada, you'll find registration for Anime Fusion in the main lobby past the hotel front desk. You'll need a photo ID to get your convention badge (your access pass for the event). You may not pick up anyone else’s badge but your own, even if you have their ID. We encourage everyone who pre-registered to bring proof of payment in case there are any errors. Registration's hours are:

Friday: 10 AM - 9 PM
Saturday: 10 AM - 9 PM
Sunday: 10 AM - 3 PM

If you pre-registered, you can pick up your badge in Operations if Registration is closed. For those who did not pre-register, we also have weekend and day passes available at the door. Walk-up registrations cannot be processed outside of Registration's normal hours, so be sure to arrive when they are open! Day passes are valid until 10 AM the following day. The at-door prices are:

Full Weekend: $40
Friday Only: $15

Every person is responsible for their convention badge once it has been picked up. We cannot replace your badge if it is lost. If you do lose your badge, we recommend checking with Lost & Found in Operations before purchasing another one. You may not give your badge to anyone else or otherwise allow anyone else to use your badge. If you wish to transfer your membership to someone else, you will need to visit the registration counter and request a transfer. No transfers will be processed outside of normal registration hours.

Photoshoot Requests Now Open

We are now taking requests for official photoshoots at Anime Fusion! Organizing an approved photoshoot means our designated photo area will be reserved for your topic of choice at a specific time, and your photoshoot will be promoted in our printed and online schedules so interested attendees will know when and where to meet you. Official photoshoots are the best way to gather the largest group of cosplayers for your favorite series. You can submit multiple requests.

Submit your requests through the Photoshoots form:

Panel Submissions Close 8/31

Thinking about hosting a panel or event? Programming submissions close in less than two weeks, so be sure to submit your request before then!

Did you know that most panels at fan-run conventions like Anime Fusion are organized by attendees? The Programming department approves and schedules the events, but without attendees like you willing to run them, the schedule would be almost empty. Is there a panel you've always wanted to see at a convention? Want to make sure there's a panel for your favorite series? Submit your idea and claim an hour on the programming grid!

Don't delay; submit a panel today! See the Panels & Events page for more information:

Artist Alley Full, Dealers Room Open!

Our Artist Alley for 2014 is full and applications are now closed.

However, the Dealers Room is currently open for vendors to apply! We are a young but growing convention; this year we anticipate an attendance of around 1500. We maintain a vendor hall of appropriate size for our event - not too big, not too small - to meet the needs of our vendors as well as our attendees. We are open to a wide variety of products and merchandise. See our Dealers Room page for more information:
