Title: Does it Matter Where we Pick Up Our Badges?
Post by: mischeivious_lil_kitsune on March 16, 2016, 10:42:58 AM
I was about to register for Fanime, but I wanted to make sure before I check out, but does it matter where we pick up our badges?

This year my friends and I are staying at the Double Tree where Clockwork Alchemy is being held at and know it would be easy to pick up our badges there, but I want the Fanime badge design and one of my friends accidentally registered for Fanime instead of Clockwork.

I looked on the FAQ and it didn't specify if that if we wanted a Fanime badge we had to get it at Fanime or if we wanted a Clockwork Alchemy badge to go to Clockwork. So does it matter when we register for badge design and pick up designations of which ones we choose, or not? And is it too late for my friend to change his Fanime badge to Clockwork Alchemy?


And I would like to add, yes I know you can go to both conventions with either badge but I just want the Fanime design instead of Clockwork.

Badges are printed on site with the cards that are stocked in the machine at the location. Fanime pick up location will print badges with Fanime art and if Clockwork Alchemy has different art then badges printed at Clockwork Alchemy will have Clockwork Alchemy art. When you specify Clockwork Alchemy or Fanime when you register it does not determine where you plan to pick up your badge. It is to tell the convention your primary reason for attending.

Edit: I just remembered that in the past Clockwork Alchemy has had a separate line for Fanime people if you want the Fanime artwork (at least that was the case 2 years ago).

Oh okay. I just wonder why this year on the online registration they didn't ask where we should pick up, because they did that last year.

In the past they asked about pickup location so that they could get an idea of how much traffic to expect at each location (you could still pick up at either place no matter what you designated when you registered). They probably have enough of a handle on the system now and a decent idea of what to expect based on previous years so they no longer need to collect that information beforehand.

Even if you pick up at Clockwork Alchemy you can still get the Fanime badge art. Fanime and Clockwork Alchemy have their own separate lines at the Double Tree. I picked up at the Double Tree last year and was a one person line for like 30 seconds :)

Also if you pick up on Thursday the shuttles that go between Fanime and Clockwork Alchemy may not be running yet.
