At Katsucon we never forget that, as wonderful as our guests are, without YOU, the attendees, there would be no convention. Along with 3 days of intense programming, Katsucon also makes many services available to our attendees each year in order to make sure you have the best time possible.

Anime Clubs

If you’re a local Anime Club, your club is attending Katuscon, or you just want to reach out and be reached by other people, add your club information here for posting on our Anime Clubs pagr!

Attendee Service Program

Katsucon has initiated an attendee service team available throughout the convention 24 hours a day to assist attendees if they do not understand a policy or procedure that is being enforced by a Katsucon staffer or volunteer, or if they are uncomfortable with how a Katsucon staffer or volunteer is treating them. Learn more about the Attendee Service Program here!

Info Booth

Info Booth is where you can go to find out all sorts of different information. They can tell you where to find that special panel, let you know if any changes have been made to the schedule, even help you find a great place to eat near-by.

Lost and Found

If you find something during the con that appears to be lost or forgotten, we have a special home for it where it’s owner can find it again. Please bring any lost items you find to Lost & Found in Katsucon Security and we’ll do everything we can to return it to it’s rightful owner. Likewise, if something is missing, come one down to lost and found to see if it’s been turned in!


Not feeling well? Got a blister or a cut? Seriously overheated? Reacting Badly to something you ate? Katsucon Medical is here to help! No problem is too large or small for our dedicated group of volunteers.

Photo Areas

What’s the point of wearing fantastic clothes all weekend if no one remembers how you look in them? We can’t imagine it either! For the benefit of all of our attendees (the ones who want pictures and the ones trying to walk through the halls) we’re setting up special areas complete with backdrops for you and your friends to take pictures! The photo area will be clearly marked on the convention map that comes with your Program Book and will be announced on the site before the con.


Katsucon is run by volunteers just like you, and every year it needs lots of volunteers to make the convention happen! Whether you have 2 or 20 hours to spare, please consider volunteering some time to help keep Katsucon running smoothly throughout the weekend. Learn more about our fabulous Volunteers department and they opportunities they have available here!
