Pre-registration Badge Pickup 3pm or 4pm?

Post by pirateoceanlova » Sat Mar 10, 2018 6:45 pm

Hello,

I notice on the Anime Boston Website it says that the hours of pre-registration badge pick up for Thursday starts at 3pm, however in the email I received confirming my Anime Boston registration, it says that badge up for Thursday starts at 4pm. I was wondering if a staff member could answer what time badge pick up on Thursday starts.

Thanks!

Hi there!

I apologize for the confusion this caused!

The hours you see here are correct!

Some people have had luck doing that. Make sure you have the brightness setting maxed out for a better chance of it working.

Thank you for clarifying! I had questions on the same thing as the first poster. Do you also suspect the lines to be long as well for Thursday badge pickup? I just want to make sure so I can plan ahead.

There will be lines at 3 as people will wait hours to be first. Show up an hour after open and the line will be practically non existent (baring some disaster).

From personal experience regarding QR Codes, sometimes, a screen protector will interfere with the reader. As stated, turning the brightness all the way up will help but it may not scan correctly if you have a screen protector.
