Is my badge transferable?

Yes, a badge can be transferred. Please send the name of the original purchaser and the name and email of the person the badge is being transferred to via email to with the subject line "Membership Transfer.” You will then be contacted.

What is the refund policy?
Unfortunately, we are not able to offer refunds for this event.  You MUST have a valid WhedonCon badge for the days(s) of the Special Events and Products you're interested in.

Why do you not offer any refunds?
Fan run conventions like ours budget for our expenses every year based on convention pre-registration; therefore, when you register for the convention, the funds you provide are allocated immediately for things like guest expenses (air travel & hoteling), publications, technical expenses (lighting and sound) and other stuff that makes our event unique (like signs and decoration). Refunding memberships may make us fall short of our expectations and our contracts, causing considerable financial concerns.
