  • The Full Weekend Attendance Cap will be 2700 attendees. Saturday Only and Sunday Only admissions will be capped at 300 each.
  • Group Registration will only be available to pre-approved groups. There are no discounts for group registration. Contact our Registration Coordinator if you have a large group (6 or more). Please note: Supervising Guardians may only accompany up to 5 Minors.
  • Attendees can pick up badges for other attendees during badge pickup ONLY if they have the confirmation email and a handwritten, signed and dated note from the badge owner.
  • Tora-Con does NOT endorse third-party sales of any badges. In past years, we have seen counterfeit Tora-Con badges being sold. Tora-Con will not respond to any requests to authenticate claims of Tora-Con badges being sold through third parties. Anyone who purchases a badge from a source other than our website (www.toracon.org) does so at their own risk. This includes reselling of valid badges purchased from our website. Tora-Con accepts no liability for the purchase of a counterfeit/resold badge and reserves the right to confiscate any such badges and to revoke access to the convention.

Badges for Tora-Con 2020 will only be sold through our website. Please read over the following information and check the Registration FAQ. Should you have any further questions or concerns, please email our Registration Coordinator.

In addition to Guardian's registration, a minor waiver must be filled out for each individual minor. Minor waivers will be distributed and need to be filled out on the day of the convention.

Anyone under 18 is considered a Minor and must be accompanied by a Supervising Guardian who is of 18 years old or older. A Supervising Guardian must also purchase a badge separately to accompany the Minor during the convention. Only the Supervising Guardian's photo ID will be necessary for badge pickup.

A Supervising Guardian may accompany no more than 5 Minors.

Minors who are 5 years of age or younger are admitted to Tora-Con for free. Please contact our Registration Coordinator for 5 and under registration.

 

All registrations must be completed prior to the closing of general registration. 

 

In order to prevent overcrowding at convention venues, Tora-Con has an attendance cap to limit total attendance on any single day. Total number of badges sold for Tora-Con 2020 will be:

    Full Weekend: 2700
    Saturday: 300
    Sunday: 300

We strongly recommend that you purchase your badges online if you wish to attend Tora-Con 2020. We have been known to sell out of badges and there will be no day of registrations, so get your badges soon.

In order to comply with our university standards, an attendee must register with their legal name that matches the name given on the photo ID. If you are purchasing a badge for another person, please put down their name while purchasing their badge and not your own.

Legal names will be printed on the badge in a location difficult to immediately read, however there will be a space to write down whatever name you prefer on the badge. Badges will be considered void if this name is cut off from the badge. You may make a comment during your registration to inform us of your chosen name that you would like to be addressed during badge pickup.

If you are a current RIT student, you may register with the name printed on your school ID.

If you are in the process of a legal name change, please register with your current legal name. Contact our Registration Coordinator to update the name on the badge if your legal name has changed between the time of purchase and the convention date.

The Registration Service Desk is located inside the Gordon Field House. Please follow signs and look for staff and volunteers in marked t-shirts. Registration staff will be on hand to process group admissions. Supervising Guardian and Minor admissions will be bundled at the regular badge pickup tables. Please remember to bring your confirmation email and photo ID with you to badge pickup. If there are any problems with your registration, please have a staff member escort you to the Registration Service Desk to handle your case. Badge Pickup and Registration Service Desk Hours are:

If you wish to inform Tora-Con of a special needs request such as ASL interpreter services, there will be an option to make a note of it during your registration.

You may also contact our Registration Coordinator directly.
