Frequently Asked Questions

Here we have compiled some of the questions we've received from those interested in the convention, for your convenience.

  • Is there a minimum age for attending the convention?
    All attendees have to be 18 or older from the first day of the convention.

  • How are badge numbers assigned?
    The badge numbers are assigned according to the time of payment, not the time of registration. So it's possible to get a lower badge number than someone who signed up before you if you're faster at paying.

  • Can I transfer my booking to someone?
    A booking transfer is possible as long as the recepient has a valid login in the system and no other booking. Please send an e-mail to [email protected] if you're looking to transfer a booking.

  • Can I upgrade to sponsor/super sponsor or change to another room category?
    This is possible. For room upgrades there needs to be a vacancy in the category you wish to upgrade to. You can upgrade to sponsor/super sponsor at any time. To do this, simply send us an e-mail at [email protected] with the changes you wish to make. Remember to include your name and badge number.
    NOTE: You can also downgrade, but we cannot refund the price difference.
  • What forms of payment are accepted during the registration?
    We accept bank transfers and credit cards. We do not currently accept PayPal. We apologize for the inconvenience.

  • How do I pay?

    If you are paying by bank transfer, please make sure that all additional bank fees are paid by yourself. Otherwise we will have to charge you extra during the check-in to cover the extra costs.

    We accept Visa and Mastercard through Payson.

    If you pay in installments, the first payment (minimum 25% of the invoice amount) needs to be done within 14 days and the complete payment has to be finished no later than 15th January, or your registration will be cancelled without refunds. Please note that paying through installments is only possible with bank transfers for new registrations.

    Please don't hesitate to contact our registration team if you have any questions or comments.
    E-mail: [email protected].

  • Are there any additional fees?

  • What kinds of IDs are accepted for check-in?
    You must present some form of valid photo ID with your date of birth on it at registration, such as a passport, driver's license or national ID Card. If you are unsure whether your form of ID is acceptable or not, then please e-mail [email protected] well in advance of the convention for confirmation as to its acceptance.
