Q: Do you take registrations over the phone?
No, we do not.

Q: I’ve been trying to get on the registration site and it isn’t working can you help?
Email info @ deltahcon (dot)com for registration site issues and errors. Please include Registration Site Problems in the subject line. Please create an account or log into your existing account before you attempt to buy passes. This is the most common issue.

Q: I ordered my badge but haven’t received it yet, when will I get it?
We do NOT mail badges. Badges are available for Will-Call pickup at the registration booth. Please bring a print out of the confirmation email.

Q: I’m having troubles getting into my account, can you help?
The main reason some people have problems logging into their account is that all usernames and passwords are case-sensitive. Please make sure you enter (them) in exactly as you did when you setup your account. You can also use the Lost Password feature to retrieve your account information. If this feature doesn’t work, please send all inquiry’s to info @ deltahcon(dot)com.

Q: Do you offer a parent/guest/shopper/professional badge?
No, we do not offer these types of badges. If you are attending the show you can select either a 3 Day badge or a 1 Day badge. With a badge you get access to the exhibit hall, art show, seminars, and other events that do not require additional event tickets.

Q: I want to pre-register but I can’t find how to register my child that is under 5, what do I do?
Due to the difficulty in verifying ages on the internet, those that need to get a children’s pass must do so onsite at the show. If you are already pre-registered, you can pick up a pass for your child at Customer Service. If you don’t have a pass yet, you can get the children’s pass when you purchase yours.

Q: Do I need to have a badge to purchase event tickets?
Yes! You’ll need to have a badge to purchase any event ticket. If you’d like to buy an event ticket for another day, you must present a 3 day badge or a 1 Day badge for that day. The Event registrar will not sell ANY event tickets without a valid badge, no exceptions.

Q: Is there a disability services area?
Yes, it’s near customer service. If you are disabled, we ask that you wait in this line. If you appear to be able-bodied we may serve the disabled first and/or ask you to wait in a different line, this will be at the discretion of the customer service agent.

Q: Can I buy a badge onsite?

Q: What is the Refund Policy?

Refund Policy

• Please note that all sales are final, as memberships are neither refundable nor returnable. They may be upgraded.
• Memberships cannot be transferred forward to future shows.
• Please be careful not to lose or misplace your convention badge or wristband because they will not be replaced. All convention functions require a convention badge or wristband worn in plain sight in order to participate.
Guest appearances are subject to change or cancellation due to professional obligations. Please check the Delta H Con website for the most current listings prior to the event. Refunds cannot be issued in the event of a guest cancellation.

Q: When can I register for events, and how do I do so?
Online Event per-registration begins in January. After closing, you can still register for events you want to attend but you must go to the registration area during the convention to do so.

Q: How many tickets can I buy for each event?
Most events have a limit of 1 tickets per person and you can only purchase 20 generic tickets at a time. Some events have different limits, however. Generic tickets are not available online.

Q: What is the difference between a “generic ticket” and a “specific event ticket”?
A generic ticket can be used for any event that has space for more players but a specific event ticket is for one, individual event. A generic ticket is like a token at an arcade – you can use it on any game you want. You will need to provide enough generics to cover the event ticket cost, so in some cases you will need more than one generic ticket to enter the event. A specific event ticket is like a movie ticket or plane ticket – it guarantees you a spot in the event.

Q: Who can submit events to Delta H Con?
Anyone can submit events at Delta H Con. The more, the merrier! If you are interested, check out the Host an Event web page.

Q: Is there a cost with running events?
A badge is required to attend the convention but there is no additional fee for someone who wants to come and run a game or event. Any fee charged to participants will be set by you and collected during registration for the event. The convention will add a $2 processing fee to every ticketed event to cover ticketing and handling.

Q: How do I submit an event?
Events can be submitted using our online submission form found within the registration system. Please note there is a deadline for event submission.

Q: How do I know if my event has been accepted, or if there is a problem with my submissions?
As long as the email address in your account in our registration system is correct (and your spam blocker doesn’t filter out our emails!) then you will receive an email notification when your events are approved or rejected.
If your event has been rejected, you can correct any problems and try to submit it for review again.

Q: Will I get a special badge for running events?
Panel runners and game masters who host 3 or more events will receive an email with a code for discounted Delta H Con entrance. Only the primary panelist/GM will receive credit for hosting. Groups who host 4 or more panels or games should contact us to determine if multiple badge discounts can be arranged. Panelist badges will be $20.

Q: What do I do if I have any other questions about submitting events?
If you have any other questions or problems, just send us an email (info @ deltahcon(dot)com) or call (713-631-3061) and we’ll be glad to help you out.

Q: I called the hotel to get a room and they are all sold out. How do I get a Delta H Con room?
If the hotel is sold out, this does not mean the rooms blocked for Delta H Con are. We negotiate blocks of rooms from the hotels we choose to include in our block. If the rooms are sold out it will show on the hotel reservation system that those rooms are not available. You will have to use the weblink to check the availability.

Q: I called the Hotel of my choice and they have rooms available, but at a much higher rate. Why?
Most hotels will not allow us to take their entire inventory of rooms. They have to keep a portion of them for transient business. If they have rooms still available during the time we are there, they will likely raise the prices on those rooms. It’s up to their discretion on how much they want to charge.

Q: I have booked my room outside of the Delta H Con Block at a higher price, can I get the Delta H Con Rate?
No. We can not pull any reservations that are outside of our block into our blocks. If you choose to book outside of the block you will have to pay the going rate.

No, we do not assist with this. You can check the Facebook page to see if there are others seeking roommates, and make those arrangements on your own.

You will have to call the Hotel to check availability. We want to protect these rooms for those who truly need accessible rooms.
