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 October through December, and the second period will be from Jan. 1st through March 21st.  Badge sales at the at-door pricing will be available after that, both online and at the convention iteself.

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 22nd at 6 p.m. at the St. Charles Convention Center.  At-door badges can be purchased at the registration booth 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

We will be offering online programming in addition to at-show programming for 2021.  Any 2021 new badge purchases, excluding chaperone and child passes; as well as all rolled over 2020 badge purchases, will receive access to a Discord server that will host said programming for as long as the server is active.  The type of badge bought does not determine the amount of time you’ll have access to the online programming offered (ie, a Sunday badge will get server access for the whole scheduled time frame of the active server during the show length).  Online content will not include the 18 and over programming.

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 people 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 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 AND TRADING POLICY

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.  No refunds will be given at or after the event.  Refund requests should be sent to conchair@animestl.net by March 31st, 2021.

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 e-mail conchair@animestl.net with your hotel confirmation number and we’ll add you to our pick-up list.  You can also add up to 3 friends (who have also pre-registered) so that you can all get checked in and then hit the con floor even quicker!  All requests for this service must be received by March 31st, 2021.

New for 2021 – 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!
