Badges are not mailed out pre-show, however, memberships ordered prior to the August 16, 2019, 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 2019. 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 2019.

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.

For 2019 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 8/29 -10am - 10pm
  • Fri 8/30 - 8am - 10pm
  • Sat 8/31 - 8am - 9pm
  • Sun 9/01 - 8am - 9pm
