Contact Us

We're excited to announce that the Help Desk is back! If you encounter any issues that cannot be resolved by referring to our FAQ page or by asking a staff member in person at the convention, please fill out the form at this link.

Please remember that we are a team of dedicated volunteers, and we will address tickets as promptly as possible. However, during Otakon weekend, we will not be answering tickets. This is not a dedicated position, and we all have other tasks to perform at the convention.

Thank you for your understanding and patience.

Otakon® is an annual celebration of Asian pop culture (anime, manga, music, movies, video games, etc.) and its fandom! Otakon is run by the non-profit organization Otakorp, Inc.
