Registration & Memberships
What is a membership? Is it the same as admission?
An MGA Con Membership is admission to the convention.
What types of memberships do you have and how do I pay for them?
See the Registration page for information.
Will I be able to purchase a membership after the cutoff date?
If you have not pre-registered by the deadline and want to attend, you must purchase a walk-in membership at the convention.
I live outside the United States and want to attend MGA. How can I pay for a membership?
For those living outside the U.S., we ask that you use our online method for pre-registering, or purchase a walk-in membership at the convention.
Why do you need names for everyone pre-registering for MGA?
We maintain a list of everyone who has pre-registered. We use this list in printing a badge for every attendee. To ensure everyone who pre-registers receives a badge, we must make sure that names for everybody are included on the forms.
What is a Confirmation Email?
A confirmation email is an electronic notification sent to online pre-registrants confirming that their membership has been accepted and processed. Be sure to print your confirmation email. Your confirmation email and a photo ID will be required to pick up your badge.
Are there different rates for children on the pre-registered forms?
No. Discounted rates are only offered for children on the walk-in membership rate.
I purchased a membership and won’t be able to attend. What can I do?
If you have pre-registered, and will not be able to attend, send an email to and request a transfer. Memberships can be transferred to another person or to the following year. If you decide to transfer your membership to another person, we will need their name and email address to make the changes. If you transfer to the next year, you will receive a new confirmation email. Memberships do not automatically transfer. You must contact us to request a transfer. Memberships are non-refundable.
