You can attend Evo 2023 by registering for the convention at smash.gg/evo and/or purchasing an Arena Finals ticket from AXS.com. You can pick up your event badge and complimentary refillable water bottle starting the day before the event.
Wait, Badges and Tickets?
Yes. Evo 2023 takes place in two different locations at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino. Each location has its own pass needed for entry. To experience all three days of Evo 2023, you will need both an Event Badge and an Evo 2023 Arena Finals ticket.
- Badges are the entry passes for Evo 2023’s tournaments and convention taking place August 4 - 5, 2023 in the Bayside D, E, and F Exhibit Halls in the Mandalay Bay South Convention Center. Badges can be purchased at smash.gg/evo. You will need a badge to enter the Exhibit Halls.
- Badges cover the cost of entry into Evo Community Championships, Bring Your Own Console areas, and other on-site activities. In Nevada, there are various fees associated with attending events that this Mandatory Fee covers. This fee cannot be opted out of and is part of Evo 2023’s Badge costs.
- Badges must be worn and fully visible at all times in the Exhibit Halls. Badges are only valid for a single individual.
- Tickets are the entry passes for the Evo 2023 Arena Finals in the Michelob ULTRA Arena at Mandalay Bay. Tickets can be purchased at AXS.com. You will need a ticket to enter the Arena Finals.
All badges and tickets include reentry. All attendees who want to exit the show floor or arena and return at a later time will be able to do so.
Where can I pick up my passes?
You can pick up your Event Badge, or purchase day passes, at the Registration desk outside Bayside F in the South Convention Center at Mandalay Bay. You will need a valid ID (Passport, Driver’s license, or State ID) and the email confirmation you received from your smash.gg registration. You can only pick up badges for yourself or individuals you are legally responsible for.
The Registration desk will be open Thursday, August 3, 2023 from 6pm-10pm PDT. Badge Pickup hours for August 5 and August 6 will be posted before the event.
What about refunds, exchanges, transfers, or cancellations?
All badge and ticket sales are final. No refunds, exchanges, or transfers will be available. In the event Evo 2023 is canceled, your badge and/or ticket will be refunded. There is no authorized resale of Evo 2023’s badges or tickets. Please note that badges and tickets for Evo 2023 not purchased via Evo’s smash.gg/evo or AXS pages will not be honored.
What if I lose my badge or ticket?
You are responsible for your badge and/or ticket. Lost or stolen badges and tickets cannot be replaced or refunded.
Do my friends and family need passes?
Yes, everyone needs to be in possession of a badge and/or ticket to attend Evo 2023.
Can children attend Evo 2023?
Children under the age of 6 can attend Evo Day 1 and Day 2 for free with any badged parent or adult legal guardian. Any child over the age of 6 will require a badge to enter the convention floor.
