Speeding Through Registration – Tips for Arrival

This entry was published on March 16, 2017 and may be out of date. For the most current information on this year's Norwescon, please see our most recent blog posts. Thank you!

We’re just four weeks out from Norwescon 40! In case you’re new to us, or if you could use a refresher, here are some tips on how to get through registration and get your badge once you arrive at the hotel.

In brief:

  • Badges are not sent out ahead of time, you pick them up at the registration desk.
  • You will need your printed and signed AUP (Acceptable Use Policy) form, which will be emailed to you about two weeks before the convention.
  • If you do not bring your AUP, you can print it out at registration.
  • If you have not pre-registered, you can do so at the convention.

Read on for more detailed information!

If you pre-registered for Norwescon 40, in about two weeks you will be receiving an email from registration@norwescon.org that contains a link to your Acceptable Use Policy form (AUP) with the pre-printed barcode. Please print this form, sign it, and bring it with photo ID to the badge pick up line. The AUP form is an agreement that you will abide by convention rules. Your signature on the AUP is required, so electronic format of your AUP will not be accepted.

If you have not pre-registered for Norwescon 40, you must use the general registration line. You will need a photo ID and cash or credit to pay for your badge. Someone in the lobby will direct you to the appropriate line, registration/printing, or badge pick up. The attached map may help.

The amount of time you spend waiting in line depends on if you have pre-printed your AUP, and how many other members show up at the same time. Please allow at least 30-45 minutes to get through the line before your first event.

Registration hours are:

  • Thursday: 10 a.m.–9 p.m.
  • Friday: 9 a.m.–9 p.m.
  • Saturday: 9 a.m.–9 p.m.
  • Sunday: 9 a.m.–5 p.m.

Rates for registration at the convention are:

  • Full membership: $75
  • Youth membership: $50
  • Thursday only: $40
  • Friday only: $50
  • Saturday only: $50
  • Sunday only: $30

One-day badges may only be purchased on the day of use.

  1. The schedule on the “Speeding Through Registration” page says that on Thursday registration will be noon to 10 p.m., but on the “Hours” page it says 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Could you clarify which are the correct hours, please?

    • Thanks for catching that, Don! The schedule on the “Hours” page is correct; the schedule on this “speeding” blog post was a preliminary guess based on last year’s hours, and will be updated momentarily.
