Lost & Found
AnimeNEXT does not have a Lost & Found department. Lost property will be turned over directly to the Atlantic City Convention Center Lost & Found, located on the ground floor of the convention center. You will need to contact the Atlantic City Convention Center to recover lost property. You can contact them either in person on the ground floor of the ACCC, or call:
Jim Menz, Public Safety Manager, 609-449-2026
Hassan Brown, Asst. Public Safety Manager, 609-839-2023
Any attendee who loses their badge may check in with convention staff and the Lost & Found (which is run by Atlantic City Convention Center staff) to see if someone turned it in. If the original badge can't be found, the attendee is required to purchase a replacement in order to access any AnimeNEXT event thereafter
