Why Pre-Register?

Pre-registration gets you a guaranteed spot into the convention, a fancier souvenir badge, a short line, and a lower membership cost.

When you pre-register, we will have a souvenir badge waiting for you to pick up when you check in at the convention. Starting with Kumoricon 2014, we no longer mail badges in advance. We decided to make this change to streamline and simplify the registration process. Each year, many badges got lost in the mail, and it was another thing you had to remember to bring. What isn't changing: Pre-registered members will still receive a fancy souvenir badge. Same badge, you just pick it up when you get here.

Pre-registration is now closed.

VIP Membership

  • A ticket to the limited admittance Kumoricon Guest Autograph Reception
