The Hyatt Regency ColumbusWe’re happy to announce that our room block at the Hyatt Regency Columbus is now open! You can book your room now to receive the group rate. Please double-check our new COVID-19 policy before booking so you know what to expect upon arrival. We know you’ve been waiting eagerly for this, and we appreciate your patience while we worked out the details and can’t wait to see you in February!

A chibi Lindsay holds a letter and says "Ohayo gozaimasu!"We’re happy to announce pre-registration for Ohayocon 22! Today through Sept. 19 you can purchase your weekend badge for the best price of $55! Everything you need to know about admission and registration (including Covid-related information) is available on the Pricing & Admission Info page. We’re still working out hotel deals; we’ll let you know when they’re ready.

Some other announcements:

  • Artists, the application for Artist Alley is available now through August 30. You can learn more on the Artist Alley page.
  • Panelists, your application is due Nov. 27. Where do I sign?
  • Cosplayers, the Expo application will be available Oct. 1st. (And here’s a little secret: the Ohayocon 22 theme is “magical creatures” with a cottagecore style.)
  • Finally, if you are entitled to a comp badge (say, if you won a giveaway or contest), you should have received an email with instructions on how to claim it. If you did not receive an email but you believe you should have a free badge, please contact us.

We would like to offer a heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported and attended our first online event. It has been a very long year, but we’re here to stay! Right now, we have not made any decisions about Ohayocon 22 but we can tell you that the dates are January 14-16, 2022. (The dates are very likely changing; we’ll have an announcement as soon as contracts are signed.) If we can have large gatherings by those dates, then Ohayocon 22 will be in the usual place, the Hyatt Regency Columbus. (But officially, we cannot recommend making a reservation yet.)

If you need to contact us, please feel welcome to do so via our contact form. See you later!
