Anime North 2016 Registration Announcements

Pre-Registration for Anime North 2016 is now open.

Note: Weekend Admissions for Anime North 2016 are now sold out.

For Anime North 2016, we have several announcements to make regarding Registration.

1. The Weekend Admission Cap has increased from 15,000 to 17,500! The Daily Admissions (Fri, Sat, Sun) will remain at their 5,000 levels.

2. The first 5,000 Early Bird discounted Weekend Admissions are now sold out. The remaining 12,500 Weekend admissions will be for the regular $60 price.

3. Group admissions are being discontinued starting in 2016. Group discounts will only be considered in special cases (school trips arranged by the school, established anime clubs, etc.) and must be arranged ahead of time by contacting Registration directly.

4. All Canadian attendees can now request to have their Admission Badges mailed out to them before the con (US mailing not available this year). The mailing fee will be $15 per order and badges will be sent by courier 2-3 weeks before the con. Deadline for requesting the mail-out will be April 30. Buy your admission together with your friends and split the mailing fee. More information.

5. Anime North does not endorse third-party sales of Anime North 2016 admissions. In 2015, we saw several cases of fake 2015 admissions being sold online. Starting in 2016, Anime North will not respond to any requests to authenticate claims of Anime North 2016 admissions being sold by third parties. Anyone who purchases an Anime North 2016 admission from anywhere except through Anime North Registration does so at his/her own risk, and Anime North will not accept any responsibility if they turn out to be fake.

6. Doll North-Only admissions are now being offered for 2016. These admissions will cost $30 and will be sold at the door of Doll North, in the Crowne Plaza hotel. Regular Anime North attendees will continue to have full access to Doll North events; these admissions are for people who wish to only attend Doll North. More information.


2016 Attendance Cap

In order to prevent over-crowding at convention venues, Anime North has established an attendance cap to limit total attendance on any single day. Total admissions that will be sold for Anime North 2016 will be:
  • Weekend/Group: 17,500 (Sold out)
  • Friday-only: 5,000
  • Saturday-only: 5,000
  • Sunday-only: 5,000

We strongly recommend that if you wish to attend Anime North 2016, to purchase your admission through Pre-Registration; Weekend and Saturday admissions both sold out last year before the con, and Friday and Sunday admission sales increase each year. We cannot guarantee any admissions will be on sale at the door.

Registration Desk

The Registration Desk is located in Hall D of the Toronto Congress Center.

Registration Desk hours are:

Thursday, May 26, 2016

5:00 PM - 9:00PM*

(pre-reg pickup only)

*Please Note: on Thursday and Friday evening, Anime North Registration reserves the right to cap the lineup at the Registration Desk, starting at 8PM, to ensure the staff will have adequate time to complete processing the line by 9PM.


Convention Badges

All attendees of Anime North are required to wear an Anime North convention badge at the con, as proof that you have purchased an admission and are entitled to attend all the convention's functions. Badges are obtained at the Registration Desk.  If you have pre-registered for the convention, you can present your confirmation form from Eventbrite to pick up your badge at the Pre-Registration section of the Registration Desk. You can also purchase limited Anime North admissions directly at the Registration Desk and receive your badge. Attendees are required to print their full names on the badges, and show them to security upon request.

Warning: there have been attempts in the past by individuals to sell fake Anime North convention badges, for example by claiming to offer “discounts” on “bulk” badges purchased from the convention and being resold for charity. These fake badges are either sent through the mail, or provided at some other venue than the Registration Desk, such as the TCC parking lot. Legitimate Anime North convention badges are only available for pickup at the Registration Desk in the Toronto Congress Center, or sent through the mail by direct arrangement with Anime North Registration. Anime North employs anti-counterfeiting measures for our badges and fake badges will be confiscated by Security, and their wearers required to leave the convention


Child Registration

Children 6 to 13 years of age are admitted for half-price of the corresponding single admission adult prices, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 years old or over. Child prices are not applied to group admissions.

Children aged 5 and under are admitted free, but must be accompanied by an adult 18 years old or over.




Anime North 2016 attendees can purchase their admissions ahead of time through Pre-Registration, along with special event tickets and merchandise. Special prices are offered for some admissions for a limited time.

Due to the attendance cap, we cannot guarantee any admissions will be available for sale at the door of the convention.
