Your purchased badge is good for the entire weekend of the convention.

Our EventBrite page has a more complete FAQ (see above link)

What do I need to pick up my badge?
Please bring a photo ID or a copy of your email receipt.
Can I pick up a badge for a friend or family member?
Yes, we allow that. You will need to bring a copy of the person’s email receipt to show to registration.
[_su_spoiler title=”I forgot my badge at home or lost it?”] You can get a replacement badge at Registration for half price ($30). Just show a copy of your email receipt or photo ID and explain your situation to Registration staff.[_/su_spoiler]
How long does a 1-day badge last?
Per AMKE policy, one-day passes expire at midnight. If you have a one-day pass and are already at an event in progress, (such as Club AMKE) you are welcome to stay and enjoy it in full.
I haven't received my badge in the mail yet before AMKE?
If you ordered your badge during our Black Friday sale or after December 31, 2018, your badge is automatically pick up at-con. If this isn’t the case, please email with your legal name, badge name, and describing your situation.
Do you have passes available just for the exhibit hall?
No, we do not. In order to access Anime Milwaukee events and rooms, you must have an Anime Milwaukee badge. We suggest buying a Sunday one-day pass as the most affordable option.
What's the refund policy?
Once a badge has been purchased it is non refundable. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding in this policy.
Can I sell my badge to someone else?

While we do not like the idea of selling badges, we are fully aware that certain circumstances are out of our control and life events happen which make it so that you or someone in your group cannot attend.

The reselling of badges is allowed only if the badge does not exceed the maximum registration amount (a door price) for any ticket. Please do not scalp tickets for higher than they are worth. We want to make this policy so that we can better help our attendees and by doing that, we need everyone to be fair and understanding.

ECPS and Anime Milwaukee take no responsibility for badges that are unfairly sold or not delivered. So if you buy a badge, make sure it is someone you can trust. We recommend paying with Paypal (goods & services) for a safe transaction.
