Yes. Two days to pay.

Also we have announced a special registration pick up line for Artists in Artist Alley. Follow the link for more information.

That was me responding on Facebook! (You can find the FB group here BTW,

1) Yes there are bathrooms at South Hall. They're not porta potties. They're in those temporary buildings as someone had described.

2) Yes there is air conditioning in South Hall.

3) Yes we are going to have signs leading you there.

Hello! Registration caps the line at the closing time and will close it from more people getting in. Those who are still in line will be checked in.
Hours will be confirmed soon.

Pro tip: Please keep your eyes peeled on our Twitter, website, and Facebook around 7PM!!

Good luck everyone!

No problem. I asked because I just haven't had much feedback from attendees about Swap Meet last year. So thank you both! No you will not be sharing the space with Gaming. Gaming is still Hall 3.

I can imagine the power outage did not help with sales on Thursday night. It was a difficult situation for everyone.

The empty chairs and empty tables you refer to in the Gaming Hall were probably for Table Top Gaming. It actually costs more money for the con if we were to have people come in and move stuff around during con especially during odd hours or on a weekend. That is why we tend to have everything set up in SJCC from the get go. So if you were wondering why some other rooms weren't available, it is because they were already set up for their main events.

Agreed on the confusion! We're gonna do our best to make it as well known as possible where things are going. Even more stuff got moved around this year. Within my division alone half of my departments got moved.  :o

Thanks again for the feedback!

No need to speculate...
As you may recall, Swap Meet was in the Gaming Hall. In the few years leading up to its move to the Fairmont last year, it would become so crowded in there that it quickly became a fire hazard! Hence last year it was moved to the Fairmont for lack of a better sized space. This year it is indeed back in the main convention center in Hall 1 where Artist Alley used to be. There will be other yet to be announced events in Hall 1 when Swap Meet isn't going on.

Obviously a lot things have been shuffled around and we are working towards a comprehensive "What went where" announcement for the main website.

Why did you not like the Fairmont for Swap Meet?

Time has been finalized to 4/5/13, 7PM PDT.

Things that would actually make people happier? Are usually going to be things that aren't so easy to do.

A firm and absolute promise that not only will the registration be available, but that accounts will be properly approved or denied before the hotel cancellation deadline, even if that means having to skimp on the portfolio approvals. Because as it stands there are fears that even if registration eventually opens people will have to drop out because they didn't know in time. If there is an absolute commitment that tables will be approved before deadline NO MATTER WHAT even if it means doing registration by hand on paper forms, then the fretting will calm down.

Another options would be some sort of carrot being offered to make up for the disruption, like allowing artists to register for the convention at a discount, or a special artists-only line at pre-registration at the convention so that checking in would be speeded up. For that people would forgive a lot!

Explaining what went wrong is probably not the best answer because, while I don't know what really happened, there's a chance that it involves drama and things that would embarrass people and are not good to make public, and there's a chance that the public would massively nitpick the explanation, point out a million solutions that could have been tried instead, and generally rage.

With all the kerfuffle about the location and one trip into the hall with one's merchandise, having a separate badge pick up for AA would be ideal and very appreciated.
Replying to both as they kind of overlap. Our registration department is looking to see if there's anyway that we can have a special line. Don't take this as confirmed as I don't have the most up-to-date information, but this is one of the ways that they're looking to ease the congestion of picking up your badge.

I can't promise anything that might or might not change for FanimeCon 2014, but we will do what we always do every year after the convention - figure out what went right and what went wrong and see what we can do to improve on that for future years.

Since I had already mentioned this on the Facebook group page....

YES, Registration is planning to have a separate badge pick up lin for Artists of Artist Alley and Panelists. More information from Reg will follow. (We know some of you may be a member of a group reg, etc.)

Wow, so soon? You'd think they'd be announcing this far and wide or something...

This was released in the FAQ a little bit after we opened up pre-reg.

I've never been to South Hall now that I think about it.  It will be interesting.  I google mapped it to find it and it defiantly seems big.

Approximately double amount of square footage of Hall 1 where we put Artist Alley last year. While the layout is not finalized yet we don't intend on using 100% of South Hall.

Hello! This is an interesting question.
Please e-mail me fanservicesATfanimeDOTcom with more details (how long does the club need a person for? will there be any adults/parents coming along? etc) and we'll see what we can do.  ;D

Registration / Re: FanimeCon 2013 Attendee Registration FAQ
« on: January 24, 2013, 11:43:34 AM »
So my understanding is that this is the registration period for regular con attendees, correct? I'm wondering when registration for people who want to work the artist ally or dealers hall will be up and what the prices for that will be, and most importantly will there be hotels reserved for dealers? I'm going in a group and the leader of my group has to work when todays reg goes up so she is very concerned about getting a room attached to the convention center so we don't have to haull what we want to sell across town.

Registration for artist alley is the same as for attendees. Likewise for hotel registration for alley sellers.

Vendors in the dealers hall is totally separate registration. For more information, please contact the dealers liaison. However, vendors in the dealers hall do not need to be particularly concerned about hotel registration.
So my friend and I are wanting to sell in the artist alley, that means that we need to jump on our hotel registration today, and also get regular attendee badges? I thought in the past artist alley sellers were separate from regular attendees?

Yes you should jump on your hotel registration today as hotel rooms are limited in number. Attendee badges are not.

What you said about Artist Alley is partially correct. You have to have a paid attendee badge in order to purchase an Artist Alley table. Said another way, you can register for an Artist Alley table without an attendee badge, but that does not mean you have the table until you are approved and paid for. Once you are approved for a table, you must have a paid attendee badge before you can pay for the Artist Alley table.

Today we are opening up attendee registration (NOT Artist Alley registration). So it is up to you whether you want to pay for a possibly cheaper rate on attendee registration versus later on when it could be $5 to $10 more.

Registration / Re: When is the 2013 FAQ going to be posted?
« on: January 23, 2013, 11:12:38 AM »
FAQ will be going up tomorrow.  ;)

Tomorrow as in Thursday?  Will it be up before registration and housing go live, or is it going up at the same time?

Sorry I should have clarified. That's what I get for posting late at night. Yes Reg FAQ and prices will go up today, Wednesday. :)

I think a number of us wouldn't mind being part of the scavenger hunt as long as people can understand when we need to get somewhere fast.

Registration / Re: What is the starting price for pre-registration?
« on: January 23, 2013, 12:52:54 AM »
Just so you know, the starting price for pre-reg this year is $50. The full pricing scheme will go up tomorrow!
