Registration

Welcome to the 2018 Anime Banzai Convention!

Pre-registration is currently closed. But you can still attend if you purchase your badge at the door.

Prices:

  • Weekend: $50
  • Friday-only: $30
  • Saturday-only: $40
  • Sunday-only: $25
  • Child (10 years of age or younger): free with an accompanying, paying adult

First responders are eligible for a $5 discount if they present their first responder ID card at time of purchase.

These badges do not have names on them. We highly recommend personalizing the badge in some way to make it identifiable to you, in case it is lost and can be returned. Some recommendations are writing your name or nickname on the badge, decorating it with stickers, using permanent marker to draw on it, etc. Please remember that all words and decorations need to remain PG-13.

What if I already purchased a badge, but I can’t go?

Utah Anime Promotions and the Anime Banzai Convention do not issue refunds.

However, you can sell your badge to another person. Please Contact Registration for details and information. How the money is transferred is completely up to the two parties involved; there is no action from Utah Anime Promotions or the Anime Banzai Convention. Remember: the new person’s name must match the name on their ID. This name will not appear on the badge; no names appear on badges.

When can I pick up my badge?

If you pre-registered, you can pick up your badge at a couple different times.

  • Thursday, October 18 – 6:00pm-10:00pm
  • Friday, October 19 – 9:00am-9:00pm
  • Saturday, October 20 – 9:00am-9:00pm
  • Sunday, October 21 – 9:00am-12:00pm noon

Thursday night is only for Pre-Registration badge pick-up. There is a separate line for Pre-Registration pick-up. On Thursday night, it is the only option. But if you are picking up your badge on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, make sure you head to the smaller line that leads to the room across from the Registration Desk. The two lines are not the same. The Registration Desk will not have your Pre-Registration badge; the Pre-Registration Room will not have regular badges for sale.

There is also a pre-con event, held exclusively for Pre-Registration badge-holders. Come choose your destiny! Will you be a hero, or are you a villain? Maybe you don’t want to pick a side, but will remain a citizen on the sidelines? It’s up to you. Once you decide, you have to find a way out of the room. Can you do it? Can you pick a side, hone your skills, and escape?

Can I purchase additional badges on Thursday night?

If you have not pre-registered, you may not purchase badges at this time.

There will be no way to purchase extra badges; for example, if you pre-registered but your spouse/friend/sister did not, that other person cannot get a badge at this time. They will have to wait until Registration opens on Friday morning.

Can I pick up my spouse’s/friend’s/sister’s badge?

No. Each person must be present with their photo ID to pick up their badge on Thursday night. The name on the badge registration must match the name on the photo ID. These badges do not have names on them. We highly recommend personalizing the badge in some way to make it identifiable to you, in case it is lost and can be returned. Some recommendations are writing your name or nickname on the badge, decorating it with stickers, using permanent marker to draw on it, etc. Please remember that all words and decorations need to remain PG-13.

What types of ID can I show?

A photo ID is required to pick up your badge. Some of the types of photo identification that we accept include, but are not limited to:

  • non-expired state-issued driver’s license
  • non-expired state-issued identification card
  • non-expired passport
  • current school ID card
  • non-expired first responder ID card
  • non-expired military ID card

Can I purchase a badge for a single day?

Yes, of course you can! We offer weekend, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and child badges.

Prices:

  • Weekend: $50
  • Friday-only: $30
  • Saturday-only: $40
  • Sunday-only: $25
  • Child (10 years of age or younger): free with an accompanying, paying adult

How do I get a child badge?

If you have a child that is aged 10 years or younger, you can get a free child badge with each accompanying, paying adult badge.

When you bought your pre-registration badge, you had the option to also get a child badge. You can pick that up when you pick up your pre-registration badge.

If you did not pre-register, just ask for one when you are purchasing your own badge on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday.
