You’ve pre-registered for Origins. You’ve scoured the Event Grid, reserved your games and seminars, bought ribbons and generics. Or – you haven’t – and are waiting until you get there to register. Either way, you need to know how to get your badge once you’re at the show. Here’s a brief overview of the registration process at the Origins Game Fair. If you’ve never been to the show before, this will all be new to you. For those of you who are Origins veterans, you may notice a few things different from what you’re used to.
If you pre-register for Origins, shortly before the show you will receive an email with check-in instructions. This email includes a barcode that you can take to any pre-registration counter. Simply scan your barcode at the station. Once the attendant gives you your badge, move to the materials pick up area to get any ribbons or generics you may have purchased.
If you have registered for an Educators Hall Pass or Military badge, make sure to have your credentials handy. If you have registered a child badge, please have the child present at the time of check in.
Pre-registration for Origins will be open through Monday, June 1st. Barcode emails will be sent between May 25th and June 2nd.
There’s also good news for you if you want to register your badge onsite! Online badge registration will be open all five days of the show. This way, you can register for your badge using your computer, tablet, or phone before even reaching the registration counter. Simply have the registration attendant look up your record, add any ribbons, events, and generics you may want, and you are on your way that much faster.
If you register for an Educators Hall Pass or Military badge, make sure to have your credentials handy. If you register a child badge, please have the child present at the time of check in.
Adding Events, Ribbons, & Generics
Once you have picked up your badge and start enjoying the show, you may discover an event that you overlooked, decide that you want to pick up a ribbon for unlimited play, or grab some generics on the go. To purchase additional events, ribbons, or generics during the show, just visit any manned Onsite registration counter. Generics may also be purchased by any attendee with a badge at the generics cash only counter.
