A NOTE ABOUT VIP BADGE DEFERRALS: As with our other badge types, you may defer a VIP pass to the following year (2018). However, because of the VIP badge’s special nature, we will only be able to honor VIP deferrals provided that they are still available for that year. Once VIP badges sell out, we will be happy to transfer your previous year’s badge to a General Weekend badge (see below). Thank you for understanding.

NOTE FOR EVERYONE #1: If you volunteered in 2016 and would like to use your volunteer hours to get a discounted ticket, please submit a Volunteer Badge Request BEFORE you purchase your badge. Once we confirm your volunteer hours, we will send you a discount code good for the purchase of your badge. These codes may only be used ONCE each.

NOTE FOR EVERYONE #2: We are very sorry, but there are NO REFUNDS. If you’d like to transfer your purchased badge to another person, please have both parties email regchair@yaoicon.com with their information INCLUDING the confirmation number you received when you made your purchase. If you’d like to postpone your attendance until 2018, please email registration@yaoicon.com. Attendees with an unused badge will be given one request for a deferral/transfer, good only for the following year. Requests regarding YaoiCon events taking place before the most recent YaoiCon-sponsored convention will not be accepted.

NOTE FOR EVERYONE #3: Please bring a valid government Photo ID to the Registration Desk at the convention to pick up your badge and bracelet. Acceptable forms of valid Photo ID: Driver’s License, State ID, Passport, Military ID, or a combo of IDs (e.g. School ID with Full Legal Name and Photo plus Birth Certificate). There will be NO EXCEPTIONS to this rule. Pre-Registered attendees are only allowed to pick up their OWN Badge.

NOTE FOR EVERYONE #4: By purchasing any Badge (or having any Badge purchased in your name), you are agreeing to abide by YaoiCon’s Code of Conduct.

NOTE FOR EVERYONE #5: August 15 is the last registration day professionally printed badges with your name are guaranteed. Badges purchased after August 15 will be professionally printed with a blank space for your name, which you will fill in yourself when you arrive at the convention.
