What does my VIP Badge include?

  • The badge itself! Your oversized VIP Badge decorated with distinct art, plus an exclusive Anime Dallas VIP lanyard.
  • VIP Check-In. A line exclusively for VIPs to check in to Anime Dallas. A maximum of 350 VIP Badges are offered, to ensure rapid check-in and prevent overcrowding of the VIP Lounge.
  • Access to the exclusive VIP Lounge, featuring complimentary pre-packaged snacks, a cash bar in the evenings, and scheduled meet and greets with some of our special guests.
  • Enjoy early access to the Exhibit Hall. VIP Badge holders may enter 30 minutes before the Hall officially opens.
  • A loot bag! A drawstring bag filled with various loot; expect a mix of official Anime Dallas merch and items provided by vendors and industry partners. In 2022, loot bags included an Anime Dallas enamel pin, a soda mug with unlimited refills during expo hall hours, a $5 gift card provided by Smoothie King, and a 3D-printed red panda sculpture/pen holder.
  • An Anime Dallas T-shirt. A voucher is included in the loot bag, which can be exchanged at the Anime Dallas merchandise booth in the Exhibit Hall for a t-shirt in your desired size.*
  • 20% off Anime Dallas merchandise from the official merch booth during the convention. VIP Badge must be presented at the time of purchase; discount cannot be applied retroactively to completed transactions. Discount applies to Anime Dallas merchandise only, and is not valid at hotel outlets, vendors, or artists.
  • VIP Autograph Lines**

*T-shirt sizes cannot be guaranteed. Sizes stocked from XS through 5XL, quantities limited. Anime Dallas reserves the right to substitute another item or items of equivalent or greater retail value.

**Anime Dallas utilizes the “zippering” method to ensure VIP and general attendee autograph lines both keep moving. One attendee from the VIP line is called to the autograph table, followed by one from the general attendee line, and so forth. This is not a “line cutting” benefit, but as VIP tickets are limited to 350 maximum, generally results in shorter lines for VIP ticket holders.
