Time to break the piggy banks and dig through the couch for loose change as Otakon Online Registration is now live! Otakon welcomes everyone to experience the East Coast's largest Japanese culture convention - for fans, by fans!
Due to overcrowding issues and the lack of facility space, we are instituting an attendance cap of 35,000 people this year. We don't like to limit our growth but we've simply outgrown our current facilities and need to do this for the safety of our members and staff.
We are not raising our rates this year. We will once again be offering a limited amount of memberships at the discounted rate of $70 with full price memberships being $80. Unlike previous years where we have used a date cut-off for the discounted rate, we are instead limiting the number of discounted memberships to 10,000.
We will be providing updates on how many discounted memberships we have remaining via our website and official social media outlets. As part of this process, online registration will temporarily shut down when the 10,000th registration has been completed. This will give us time to verify the first 10,000 registrations. Following the verification process we will reopen online registration for the remaining 25,000 memberships.
If we reach 35,000 registered members, we will close our online registration and not offer at-the-door registration. As we get close to this total we will provide updates via our website and official social media outlets.
