Can I sign up to host a panel?

Yes you can! You may feel free to sign up to host multiple panels as well! Panelists who get accepted and do 4+ hours will be considered for badge reimbursement or a free pass to Year two of Dokidokon! Panels can be fandom related, informative, discussions, workshop, or considered an active panel (i.e. Cosplay Chess or Anime Jeopardy would fall into this class). Panel submissions always open the first week of November. So be sure to check back when they open to submit your panel!

I bought a badge but now I can't come. What do I do?

We understand situations arise and suddenly a convention you had planned on attending you may no longer be able to attend, for whatever reason. We will do our best to work with you in refunding your badge. We will determine what to do by using multiple factors, the primary being the date you purchased your badge. It is our sole discretion what we can do to help out, and some conventions would not even offer a refund. However we understand, we have been there, and will do our best for you. If you find you suddenly can't make the con, and have already pre-registered, please use the contact form right away so a staff member can assist you. We cannot issue refunds the month of the convention, sorry. This means any refund requests sent in July will not be accepted. We do our best to honor refund requests up until 30 days to the event. NOTE: Vendors who have purchased their table(s) must abide by the guidelines when they applied and will not be refunded for their table(s).

Can I pick which team I am on?

We will allow you to pick a team to be on when you arrive at the convention! Our staff will monitor the teams and have out the team colors that are in need of members at the time of your arrival!

Does Doki offer table swaps with other conventions?

Dokidokon is accepting con table swaps for 2021! To sign up for a table swap please with your event please email us using the Contact us page! Our swap includes one table in a high traffic area, 2 chairs, and up to 4 badges for your staff at our convention. We will also include your events logo and URL on our website under the 2021 convention swap page, as well as make social media posts about your event and Dokidokon being there.

Do you allow cosplay at Doki?

Absolutely! We love cosplay and look forward to seeing cosplayers at Dokidokon! Even though our convention is primarily Anime/Gaming we totally allow cosplays from comics, movie characters, mobile games, fursuiters, lolita members, and more!
