In order to attend Anime Central, you will need to purchase a membership. Convention memberships are your ticket to Anime Central and will allow you to access events, programming, artist alley and the exhibitor hall. Anime Central memberships can either be purchased before the convention or at the convention; however, only Full Weekend access memberships are sold before the convention. Single day memberships will be available, but can only be purchased at the convention.
When you purchase a membership (full weekend access) or a membership pass (single day access), you are purchasing a non-refundable, non-transferable membership for the Midwest Animation Promotion Society (MAPS) that allows you to attend Anime Central. Membership is required for all ages. A photo ID is REQUIRED for At-Convention membership/pass purchases for attendees age 16 and older.
