Miami, Anime Day Davie, Super Anime Day, Super Comic Day and more that I can’t remember while typing this. Some years we have more events than others… but there’s always a Florida Supercon every year (for the last eight years at least) and we’re always planning more events for the future. This will get you admission into all of them. Lifetime pass holders will now be able to check in at the VIP registration desk and will no longer need to wait in the regular registration lines.

Badges for other Supercon events besides Florida Supercon and Animate! Miami will be available for pick up at the VIP registration desk, so that you will not have to wait on long lines at the events to get in. V.I.P. benefits may change from one event to another… but whatever benefits are available with V.I.P. passes will be available with this pass.
