Register – General Admission

Anime Milwaukee welcomes you to another fantastic year!

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

After Jan 3rd, tickets will only be purchasable with the pick-up option.

Badge Mailing closes on Jan. 3rd, 2020

PRICES TABLE TBD – see Eventbrite for current prices

*Prices may be subject to change*


Common questions
When is the convention in 2020?

February 14th-16th, 2020.

What's the refund policy?

Once a badge has been purchased it is non refundable, but we do allow the transfer of badge ownership to any individual of the original purchasers choosing. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your understanding in this policy.

We do understand that sometimes guests cancel and that is usually out of our control. We cannot provide a refund for any badge(s) purchased if a guest cancels their appearance.

When do mailed badges get mailed?

Mailed badges begin mailing out Mid January about a month before the convention. We will post on our social media outlets to announce badge mailing.

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.

Can I transfer my badge?

Yes, in past years this was not allowed but as we continue to grow we understand that with bigger numbers comes policies that will need to be changed. You can officially transfer your badges to any person(s) of your choosing on your Eventbrite account or contact us about a transfer at

How do I get Group badges?

Group badges are only accessible through the group ticketing option. The minimum purchase is 15. Save your group some $$ by registering together!

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.

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.
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 after December 31, 2019, 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.
Do you have passes available just for the rave?
No, we do not. In order to access Anime Milwaukee late-night events like Club AMKE and Nocturnal Underground, you must have an Anime Milwaukee badge. We suggest buying a Saturday one-day pass as the most affordable option.
