Attendee Badges

  • By attending, attendees agree to abide by our anti-harassment policy.
  • By attending, attendees consent to being photographed (e.g. incidentally in the background of another's photo, or otherwise) and to allowing their photo, video, or film likeness to be used for promotional purposes by Midwest GameFest. Attendees should receive permission from others before directly taking their photograph; photographic harassment can lead to expulsion from the convention.
  • Pre-registered badges will be available for pick-up at the Registration Desk in the Main Lobby.
  • All attendees must have a badge to participate in events.
