The onsite registration form can be downloaded and completed offline (please type or print legibly!). One form will be needed for each attendee, along with a photo ID (school IDs are acceptable) to purchase memberships onsite. For members age 15 and under, or members of any age who do not have a photo ID, a parent/guardian/accompanying adult over age 18 must present a photo ID to purchase a membership badge. We will collect the accompanying adult’s contact information, along with appropriate parent contact information, for all attendees under age 18 and keep it on file during the convention in case of an emergency.
Children under age 15 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian/accompanying adult age 18 or over during the convention, who will need to present their photo ID to claim the child’s membership badge. Attendees age 16 and over must either present a photo ID (a school ID is acceptable) or have a parent/guardian/accompanying adult over age 18 present an ID to claim their membership badge. In both cases, we will collect the accompanying adult’s contact information, along with appropriate parent contact information, for all attendees under age 18 and keep it on file during the convention in case of an emergency.

*Refund requests, transfer of memberships and badge name changes must be completed by April 27th, 2015. After this date, we are unable to make any further changes to our membership list or offer refunds of purchases.
Note that a group purchase is different from an onsite group pick-up. Unless you specifically request pick-up as a group, all members will need to pick up their own badge. All group pick-up requests must be made in advance by May 1st. A group pick-up request must contain at least ten (10) people and include the coordinator name, group attendee names, and online or mail-in order confirmation numbers. The person who sends in the list should be shown as the coordinator. The names should be listed alphabetically – last name, first name – along with the online (AKON26ORD#) or mail-in confirmation numbers. Send the requested information via email to projecta-konreg@royalmaiden.com, and a confirmation of your request will be sent back to the coordinator as soon as possible.
For security and confirmation purposes, ALL convention attendees will be required to present a photo ID to claim their badge, as well as removing any masks for identification. If you do not have a photo ID, you must be accompanied by an 18+ adult who has a photo ID and will be onsite during the convention. If you are under 18, you will be asked to provide your parents’ contact information in addition to your photo ID (or the ID of the adult who will be accompanying you to the show). Your cooperation will speed the registration process. Thank you in advance!

About Service Charge
In our ongoing efforts to make A-Kon the best experience it can be for the fans, we are radically changing how we handle badges and badge-pickup for both pre-reg and on-site members, including MUCH shorter lines and a much more stress-free registration system.  In order to help offset the cost of the upgraded equipment, etc. it is necessary that we implement a small service/handling fee of $3.75 per membership (items like shirts, banquet tickets, etc. are excluded). Previously purchased memberships are not subject to this charge, as they are already in the system. 
Thank you for your understanding as we bring A-Kon up to a more current standard of efficiency.
