Click here to pre-register for DEXCON 20 if you have not already done so.

To reserve your spot in the events you want to play in, send eMail to: dexcon20@dexposure.com and include your name and the events you want to register for BY CODE ONLY! NOTE: You may ONLY choose Event Codes which are SHOWN IN GREEN. DO NOT CHOOSE CODES WHICH ARE SHOWN IN RED and have LOCKS on them. Red Event Codes indicate locked events which you cannot register for, later rounds in tournaments which you will be automatically advanced to from preliminary rounds, or events which have already filled up to capacity (this page will be updated several times before the convention starts).

NOTE: The CUTOFF for reserving events is 10:00AM EST on Wednesday, July 5. After that time, you can ONLY reserve events by physically entering your name on the Big Board when you arrive at the convention.

We allow you to select second and third choices for a given time slot; indicate this clearly in whatever fashion you'd like, otherwise we will just leave that slot open.

We will reply to your email with a confirmation that your reservations were received as quickly as possible. Note that you MUST include a valid eMail reply-to address for us to reach you to confirm. If you have previously selected LARPs and/or Signature Events, they will be included in this confirmation.
