How to register for Arisia 2017

Thank you for your interest in Arisia 2017! Please feel free to follow the prompts provided by the site, but just in case, this guide will help you register for this coming Arisia.
  1. Go to
  2. Enter your first and last name. If you like, you may also search by badge name, but we must have your first and last name.
  3. If you have multiple results, not to worry. Select the person that reflects the badge name you had at the last Arisia you attended.

    If you have not been to Arisia before, please click on the bottom button that says "Create a new account for (your name)". Skip to step 5.
  4. If you used one of our kiosks to print out the form last year, your security question should have remained the same as from last year. If not, and you printed out the form at home or you did not attend Arisia 2016, it will say "Please contact registration staff to have your password reset or use the reset link below." Click the link at the bottom of the page and the button on the page following to have your security question reset. You will receive an email with a link that will reset your security question, and then another email with a word that will function as the answer to your security question.

    Click on the logo at the top of the screen (or use the Back button to go back to the beginning), and re-enter your name. Follow steps 2 and 3 again. When you reach the security question, enter the word it gave you into the box and click "Continue".
  5. Here you may change your security question and answer if you have already set one, or set your new question and answer if you have not. Choose questions and answers that adhere to the guidelines outlined on the page. Click "Continue".
  6. Now you may change your first name and fan name if you so wish. Click "Continue". (Contact after you complete your registration if you need to change your last name.)
