Registration Guidelines

Please note that while the link for online registration is above and at the bottom, it’s best to read through the guidelines first! Thanks!

PRE-REGISTRATION CUT-OFF DAY

We will have two pre-registration periods this year.  The first period will be September through December, and the second period will be from January 1st through March 20th.  Badge sales at the at-door pricing will be available after that, both online and at the convention itself.

PRE-REG BADGE PICKUP AND AT-DOOR SALES

Anime St. Louis does not mail out badges ahead of time. All badges will be available for pick-up at the registration area starting Thursday, April 21st at 6 p.m. at the St. Charles Convention Center.  At-door badges can be purchased at the registration booth starting at that time as well.

Thanks to Eventbrite, attendees only need to bring their Eventbrite ticket to claim their badge, either printed or on their mobile device.

SALES TAX & EVENTBRITE FEES

We are excited to be using Eventbrite in order to improve our registration process!  To pay for the improved quality system, there will be a small fee with each badge bought.  In addition, we must charge sales tax for our passes.  Your total with these additions will be shown within Eventbrite, and will be dependent on the type of passes bought.

ONLINE PROGRAMMING

At this time, we are not planning to have online programming for AnimeSTL 2022 as we aim to fully return to in-person events.  We will provide updates if this changes at any time.

CHILD PASSES AND CHAPERONE PASSES

Children ages 7 – 12 are $15 and children 6 and under are free.

When buying a pass for someone under the age of 18, parents and chaperones may also purchase a Chaperone Pass for themselves so that they may accompany their kids throughout the event.  Chaperone Passes can only be purchased by parents and guardians as described above that are 30 years of age and older and are $25 each.   The passes grant the same access permissions as a regular badge so that parents and chaperones can access the same rooms as our attendees.

18+ BADGES, EVENTS, AND IDS

Some parts of our evening programming will be rated as 18+. In order to gain access to these events, you will be required to show your ID at the door of the 18+ programming in order to prove your age.  Attendees who are 17 and younger cannot attend 18+ events even when accompanied by friends or family that are 18+.

REFUND, ROLLOVER, AND TRADING POLICIES

After the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020, we have changed our policy to pre-registration badges can be refunded on a case-by-case basis.  Refund requests should be sent to conchair@animestl.net by April 26th, 2022.  Badges that are checked-in at the convention, meaning claimed at Registration or through the hotel pick-up perk, cannot be refundedWe do not plan to have a need for rollovers from 2022 to 2023, but we’ll update that here if that changes.

For transferring purchases, attendees should be able to do that within Eventbrite and edit their information (ie, the buyer info will remain the same, but the name and badge information can be changed so that someone else can pickup the pass).  Any issues with this should be reported to conchair@animestl.net.

HOTEL BADGE PICK-UP – EMBASSY SUITES GUESTS ONLY

Our main hotel for the year is once again the Embassy Suites that is connected to the convention center.  In addition to a lot of great amenities, additional programming will take place in the hotel like our Honey Tea Maid Cafe, Nerdy Night Lounge, and more.  The biggest added benefit is that you also don’t have to go to Registration to stand in line to pick-up your badge, you can get it when you check-in to your room!  If you purchase pre-registered passes and also have a reservation with the Embassy Suites in our room block, please fill out the form here with your hotel confirmation number and Eventbrite order number(s) and we’ll add you to our pick-up list.   All requests for this service must be received by March 31st, 2022 in order to be properly received and prepared by the hotel and event.

COSPLAY DISCOUNT CHANGES

Fans of our convention are familiar with the cosplay discount we had offered over the years.  However, due to needing to keep registration moving in an efficient manner as well as some increased costs, we have chosen to no longer have the cosplay discount in place.  This discount was first put into place when we were a smaller, school-club ran event.  Now that we are a three day convention that has an audience in the thousands, we need to make sure the registration line is quickly taken care of as best as we can.  We thank you for your understanding and support, and look forward to another fun convention year with you all!
