Swag

Sponsor and higher registrations will be available until August 15th, or until sold out; you cannot upgrade at-con. You will still be welcome to buy Patron and Sponsor swag from the con store if there is any left. Pre-registering as Patron/Sponsor reserves the swag just for you, and you’ll pay less than in the convention store. It also gets you the other benefits like a chance at free registration for next year, and early badge pickup.

To guarantee swag, you must pick up your badge and swag by 11PM on Tuesday. After that time, you will be downgraded to a Wednesday-Thursday or Thursday-only badge and refunded the difference. Some of the swag may still be available for direct purchase in the con store on Wednesday and Thursday. (This actually works out cheaper for you as well.)

Swag items will be updated and displayed here as the team decides on them.

Hours

These hours and locations may change before the con happens. Make sure to check this page again shortly before the con. After-hours registration will be available; instructions will be posted on the registration window.

Nevada N11 is near the elevators on the Spa level by the escalators.

Boring legal stuff

No part of your registration is tax-deductible, not even upgraded memberships. BLFC reserves the right to revoke your registration without a refund (generally only if you violate the Code of Conduct).

By registering, you also agree to be responsible for bids you make in any auctions, such as Art Gallery and the charity auction.

How do I make at-con registration go faster?

Pre-registration is the best way to make registration faster for everyone. If you must register the day of the con, please still register and pay online before you get in line to make the process as fast as possible. If you have only cash, register online first, and pay cash when you reach the registration desk.

Can I pick badge art at-con?

Yes, but selection may be diminished. The only way to guarantee the full selection of badge artwork is to pick your favorite before September 10th. Always pick your favorite badge art from the available options when in registration; you can continue to change your selection up until the day of the convention.

How can I confirm I’m registered?

Paid registrations are sent a confirmation email, but spam filters can be hungry beasts. To check manually, log in to registration and look for the “paid” indicator.

Will there be one-day registration?

There are no one-day badges. Instead, the badge price is reduced on Wednesday and Thursday.

Can I pick up badges for my friends?

No. Everyone must show a photo ID for their own badges.

What is an acceptable ID?

Any government-issued photo ID (driver’s license, state ID, or passport). Most photo IDs have a barcode on the back which we scan; we do not store any of this data and only use it to speed up account look-up and speed up the line.

Can I get a refund?

You can request a refund until we close pre-registration. After that, if you don’t make it to the convention, we will refund your unclaimed registration within 4 weeks.

What if I can’t make it?

Unclaimed registrations no longer roll over and are always refunded, usually 2-4 weeks after the con. If you still want the swag, you are welcome to use your refund to buy swag items from the online con store.

How can I upgrade my registration tier?

You can upgrade by logging in to registration, picking the higher tier and paying the difference, as long as stock of those tiers remains available.
