Who needs a badge?
Badges are required to be worn by every attendee, age 12 and older, while in the convention space. Kids ages 11 and under do not require a badge, but must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Anyone wishing to pre-register for events, regardless of age, must have a badge.
Can I buy a badge on-site?
Yes! Both 4-day and 1-day badges will be available on-site. We encourage everyone to consider pre-registering for the show in order to take advantage of free event registration! This is the best way to ensure you'll have a full day of gaming planned while at Nexus Game Fair.
What is the badge refund policy?
Badges may be refunded with no penalty within 10 days of purchase. After 10 days, badges may only be refunded for a system credit, which does not expire and may be used for any future badge or souvenir purchase. In no case will any badge be refunded if the attendee participates in event pre-registration.
When will I receive my badge?
You will pick up your badge at the show. Please note that a photo ID will be required to pick up your badge.
How do I submit an event?
You may submit events without purchasing a badge. However, you must have a badge prior to your events being approved for our event catalog
How do I register for events?
Event registration for Nexus Game Fair 2017 will be a live registration system and is scheduled to begin on April 30, 2017, at 7pm CST. All events will be available for registration at that time, and it will be first-come, first-serve. Keep in mind that you will only be able to register for a single "ticket" in each event, and your events may not overlap.
We take the safety and security of our guests very seriously. We welcome everyone at the show and we remain committed to being a family friendly show. You may read our entire Harrassment Policy here.
