If you have problems with the ticket system, you can contact us at info@atsusacon.be or send a message to our FB-page.

Can I buy a ticket on the day of the event?

This is possible as long as we don’t reach the maximum capacity of the event. To be sure you can visit the event, it’s safer to buy your ticket online. On top of that, you can enjoy a discount if you buy your tickets online until the 4th of August.

I’m cosplaying; do I have to join a contest?

No! You can just enjoy your day at Atsusacon dressed as your favourite character. Of course, it’s always possible to join the cosplay contest or catwalk, but this is definitely not mandatory.

Weapons & Props

Real weapons are strictly forbidden! At the convention, replica- or model weapons are allowed as a prop as long as these remain stored at all times, excluding when you are in the cosplay contest or when people want to take a picture of your cosplay. These weapons have to be treated with the proper care and safety. Cosplay weapons (made from isolation foam, cardboard, worbla, …) can be left outside of storage as long as they are recognizably fake and cannot hurt anyone. Replica- or model weapons have to conform to the Belgian law. You can take a look at our rules here for a more detailed description.

Is there a garderobe?

Yes, we have a garderobe at the entrance.

Travelling & parking

For a description of the route you have to take to reach the ICC Ghent, you can take a look at our ‘Location’ page! There’s several parkings in the neighbourhood, among which are the parking at the train station (Sint-Denijslaan) or the parking under the Sint-Pietersplein (Sint-Pietersparking).
