No group discounts or transfers allowed.  NOTE: Saturday ONLY memberships can only be picked up on Saturday, September 1, 2018, in the Capital Ballroom of the Sheraton Atlanta Hotel and Sunday ONLY memberships can only be picked up on Sunday, September 2, 2018, in the same ballroom.  Follow the signage directing you to pre-paid memberships or follow the blue tape.

Badges are not mailed out pre-show, however, memberships ordered prior to the August 17, 2018, price change will receive a confirmation postcard in the mail.

Dragon Con will be using barcodes once again to speed up the registration process for 2018. Those of you who have purchased your memberships in advance will receive (or have received already) a postcard with a barcode on the mailing label. Please bring that postcard (with the mailing label intact and legible) AND a valid government-issued photo ID with you to the registration area at the convention. That will greatly speed up your (and everyone else's) registration experience at Dragon Con 2018.

Forgetting to bring the postcard or the valid government-issued ID will slow down your registration process.

If you have questions, or concerns about presales for Dragon Con; please contact the Dragon Con Office directly or call the office during business hours Monday thru Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET at 404-669-0773.

All prepaid memberships, i.e. you have paid for your membership before the convention, will be available in the Capitol Ballroom at the Sheraton.
Thank you for a great 2017 show!

For 2018 we will use both the Capitol Ballroom and the Georgia Ballroom at the Sheraton to process anyone who wishes a single day ONLY membership on Saturday or Sunday.  If you are using cash or credit and wish to purchase a one day ONLY membership for Saturday or Sunday, follow the blue or green tape.  You can only purchase a single day membership on that specific day at the convention. We recommend the blue line, it will likely be faster.

For Friday and Monday single day only memberships, please follow the green tape to the Georgia Ballroom.

Those wishing to purchase a membership onsite, i.e. you have not paid, for 4 days, 3 days (Saturday, Sunday and Monday only) or 2 days (Sunday and Monday only) will use the Georgia Ballroom as they have in the past.

Prepaid Registration hours are as follows:

  • Thu 8/30 -10am - 10pm
  • Fri 8/31 - 8am - 10pm
  • Sat 9/01 - 8am - 9pm
  • Sun 9/02 - 8am - 9pm

On-site Registration

For those of you who are paying on-site, you can shorten your time in line as well. Click here and fill out the form, submit it, and it will generate a .pdf file with a QR code that you print and bring to the on site registration area at the convention. This form is not connected to any database, it is merely a utility for printing your own QR code.  The QR code will contain all your demographic information, mildly encrypted and base64 encoded. As always you will need to have a valid government-issued photo ID with you as well to complete the on-site registration process.

After you've arrived on-site and gone through the registration cashier line, there will be a special line at data entry for those of you who have this pdf print out to speed up your progress through the process.

Day memberships are ONLY available at the door on the day that you wish to attend.
