Where do I buy tickets?
Tickets will also be available at the venue, but you’ll save money and avoid the lines by buying in advance.
What do I get with my CatCon ticket?
Entrance into CatCon, every single seminar, all workshops, all interactive experiences put on by CatCon and our amazing sponsors, and access to over 150 curated exhibitors from all over the world! PLUS – giveaways galore, contests, and more!
Meet and Greets are not included in the price of general admission – why, you may ask? Because a portion of all proceeds from these opportunities go to various animal charities.
Will there be cats at CatCon?

PLEASE NOTE: Meet & Greets do NOT include admission to CatCon. You must purchase a ticket for CatCon in order to redeem your Meet & Greet tickets.
Can I accompany my child to their Meet & Greet, or do I have to have my own ticket?
We understand that parents will want to stand in line with their children under 13 as they wait for their Meet & Greet. A parent may accompany their child without purchasing a ticket, as long as their child has a valid Meet & Greet ticket. Due to space and time limitations, we cannot accommodate adults who want to bring a friend to their Meet & Greet– all adults attending Meet & Greets must have their own ticket.
Can I bring my cat?
Feline family members will not be allowed into this event. We believe this is the best option for the safety of our beloved pets, and that most cats would prefer to stay at home rather than go to a very crowded, foreign venue anyway. For the safety of our guests as well as your pets, anyone who arrives at the convention with a cat will be turned away at the door. If you adopt a cat at CatCon, our adoption partner will keep it for you until you’re ready to leave the event.
