April 21, 2018 at the Pinnacle Hotel, Vancouver

Day: 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM // Evening: 20:00 – Midnight

In an effort to offer people a last chance, we’re releasing a small number of SLOWGA passes. Slowga acts as a last-minute entry pass. These gain you entry to the event but do not guarantee basic loot. You will be provided with a paper version of the Quest Log. Click here to access Slowga passes.

Please note: We will NOT be selling passes at the door.

What is included in the loot?
KupoCon does not announce the content of it’s loot until shortly before the event. However, you can use previous events as a rough guide. Basic loot will contain just a single item, a quest log. Standard will contain at least three items. Premium will contain at least five items and Ultima will include more loot than you could ever imagine! Unlike many other events, our loot is handcrafted and you can be sure you’ll be pleased with your bag of goodies!
How did you calculate ticket prices?
Using some clever mog math discovered by our travelling friend Stiltzkin, we came up with a price that would guarantee the events success. If you look at the number of hours this event is, it’s roughly the same cost as what a movie ticket would be. Events of this nature are extremely expensive to produce. Thanks to a lot of hard work, we’ve been able to make tickets affordable.
What are the exclusive hotel rates?
We’ve partnered with our venue to provide you cost effective solutions for staying in the area. Pricing starts at $179. If the hotel sells out, we’ll work with you to help you find another room at one of our partner hotels. You receive access to this code as soon as you purchase a ticket. Staying at the hotel is optional. Your ticket price was not effected by this.
Why is the Knights of the Round so much more?
One word. Loot. Every extra penny will be spent on goodies. We are going to give you a great selection of event exclusive items. You’ll also have access that is usually only available to special guests and staff.
I want to bring my kids, where do I purchase their tickets?
You don’t. Children under 12 get free access to the event if they are accompanied by a paying adult. You don’t need to book in advance just turn up on the day with your paid ticket and let us know you have a child with you. We’ll have a special item for them too. We are very proud that this event is open to everyone!
What is the evening celebration and why is it 19 and over?
The evening celebration is a chance to let your hair down and have fun with your fellow fans. We’ll be servicing alcohol so we have to restrict the evening activities to 19 and over. The evening will consist of a quiz, interactive games and general mischief.
Can I buy a ticket at the door?

No. You must purchase in advance.

Do I need the names of the people coming when I book?
No. Just use your name on the tickets and update it when you know who is coming with you. Don’t delay purchasing as you may miss out on the ticket you want. Some of the tickets are very limited.
Are tickets refundable and do you have any discounts?
Tickets are non-refundable but are transferable for free. We have a number of discounts available. They are EARLYCHOCOBO, a 10% savings which is available until December 1st and DRESSPHERE which offers 15% off for cosplayers. Simply use the code at checkout!
I am disabled, does my support person need a ticket?
Due to a limited capacity, everyone requires a ticket. However, our venue is fully accessible to everyone!
Can I upgrade at a later date?
You can upgrade at the event, but stock will be extremely limited. Do this at your own risk.

Upon finding a draw point, you will be given a draw card which can be exchanged for limited edition loot. Depending on your ticket type, your draw points will vary.

Cosplay Awards    
KupoCon has teamed up with the Atlantic Award Group to bring you a special contest to recognize the extraordinary cosplayers of the event. The awards will have certain sets of criteria and will be presented at the end of the day. We’ll be selecting a panel of judges to make the selections on our behalf. We also have a nobleman award which is selected by the attendees.

Guest Talks & Panels    
We’re working behind the scenes to bring relevant individuals of the franchise to our event. We aim to hold Q&As in person and via video calls with some of the people who make Final Fantasy what it is today. We’re also producing panels on various Final Fantasy topics. From rumors and speculation to technical discussions. There will be something for everyone.

Impressed by the cosplayers? Blown away by the crafted weaponry? See first hand how they are created and chat with those that make them. These special workshops will allow you to see up close the amazing crafts of the fans of Final Fantasy. There will also be an opportunity for a Q&A in conjunction with the panels to allow you to get help with your cosplay!

Yevon Yoga      
Events like this can be tough. If you find yourself needing to relax or just want to take the opportunity to perfect the Yevon Prayer and a number of other Final Fantasy poses, why not try our special yoga session with a qualified instructor.
