Q: What is the difference between a Membership & a badge?
Membership - When you purchase a Membership, you are actually purchasing a membership to the non-profit event AnimeNEXT for the duration indicated on your badge. The concept of a membership, rather than a ticket has been around for ages and is the preferred model for volunteer conventions.
Badge - A badge is the physical item that is mailed to you, or you pick up at registration. This is proof of your AnimeNEXT Membership and used to verify it at various points during the convention.
