We use it to get our full-color 8.5"x11" program guides, plastic card badges, and pay for the technology that we rent or buy every year (computers for registration, projectors for video rooms). Platinum badges get you first-in-line privileges at these events: Steam Powered Giraffe Concert, The Fantasy Ball, Each Nights Rave Dance. Online pre-registration is a very easy and quick way to pay.Many people register as early as possible to save as much as they can, but some also wait until they can be certain they know that they are able to attend the convention.
I pre-registered and can't make it this year, can I get a refund? We can send you a refund, minus a $5 fee each, if the refund is requested soon enough after registering, but not when the convention is too close. Pre-registration helps us estimate the number of attendees we will have, and it helps us pay for things in advance.
We do not allow badges to be resold, given away, or otherwise transferred to other individuals. If you pre-register, we can invite more guests, buy more food for our Con Sweet if we have one, plan more entertainment, and a lot more. What do my convention registration costs go towards?
Children under 7 do not need to buy a badge or register. They need a badge to enter convention space, but to make it easier we give you an automatic $5 discount to anyone over 40 registering with at least two relatives under 18.
Children under 13 must be with an adult at all times. This discount is only valid online, and only if you register together. To make it easier for school groups to attend, teachers, or other licensed educators who are chaperoning a school group, can register for our convention for free by emailing us at least 35 days before the convention. Unfortunately since our convention reaches such a wide audience, only those individuals employed by a school/university/etc at least half-time are eligible for free admission. You must pick up your badge (or register) at the registration desk, they will not be mailed.
