Event Description
Welcome to the anime expo chibi Registration Page!

We welcome you to “anime expo chibi,” a smaller-scale spinoff convention that will afford fans an additional, cozier opportunity to share their love of Japanese anime and pop culture this November in Ontario, California. This event serves as a marketplace showcasing the exhibit hall and artist alley. Inspired by the adorable art style, anime expo chibi is a convention aimed at celebrating what truly makes Anime Expo so incredible — you!

Purchasing Wristbands for a Friend or Child?

If you are buying a wristband for another person, please have their email ready to enter during checkout.  You will be asked to "assign" each wristband to an individual attendee.  Badge assignment is not complete until the recipient accepts the transfer in their ShowClix account. 

If you are buying a wristband for a child, then you must also purchase a general attendee wristband for yourself or the adult who will be attending with that child at the event.  Make sure you enter the email address of the adult who will be accompanying the child during checkout.

Don't know the other person's email address or are not sure who can join you yet?  That's okay!  Just enter your email address for now and you can transfer the wristband later via your ShowClix My Tickets account.  We will also send out reminders as we get closer to the show.

You must register an individual name for each credential and each name must match a valid government-issued photo ID.

All sales are final for all credential purchases and, therefore, non-refundable. There are no refunds for missed shows.

All credentials are non-transferable to any other SPJA event.  

SPJA reserves the right to change the Refund and Transfer Policy at any time without notification. 

Upgrade, Downgrade and Exchange Policy
You can upgrade a child credential to a general attendee credential, based on availability, by sending an email to or visiting the Registration Booth on-site.

  • Tickets for additional events produced by the SPJA event, such as screenings, cafes, concerts and autograph sessions, must be presented during check-in via physical ticket or on a digital device.

Each Attendee must retain possession of his or her own credential for the duration of the SPJA event and may not loan or give the credential to anyone else. If Credentials are not worn or presented correctly by an Attendee, SPJA reserves the right to refuse admission, service, and cancel the Attendee’s credential at SPJA’s sole discretion without liability. All credentials are the property of SPJA and must be relinquished to SPJA upon request.

An optional RFID child wristband will be available to pick up at the Registration Booth (see the event webpage for hours of operation and location).
