Questions about the convention?
Have a question? Concern? Opinion? This is the place to ask it!

F'Lessan Amused 01-24-2008 01:01 AM

any idea what the final ticket prices are yet?

alsplacebartender 01-24-2008 01:27 AM

We should have that information to you on FRIDAY. Keep checking back!

Josh 01-24-2008 05:56 PM

Having never been to a convention focused on a show before, what exactly happens across three days?

CarolD 01-24-2008 11:02 PM

We're putting together a whole variety of things, Josh. There'll be the usual favorite activities (Q&A, autographs, dealers' room) plus parties, contests, a charity auction, panel discussions on various aspects of the show and characters - stay tuned for updates on what we have planned!

Philippa.Chapman 01-28-2008 12:10 PM

Please can you supply information as to your previous convention running experience, financial backing/underpinning and public liability insurance.



CarolD 01-28-2008 06:06 PM

Emma and I have served on staff of a number of conventions. This is Maryse, Judy and Brian's first go-round as staff, and the first go-round for all of us as organizers. All the financing for the con will come out of ticket sales. The liability insurance is not yet in place, but will be in the near future.

There'll be further "whats and wherefores" posted before we open ticket sales.

Philippa.Chapman 02-16-2008 09:41 AM

Sorry to be picky, but I can't see how you can possibly afford all those guests and their likely appearance fees, per deums, hotel bills, etc simply out of ticket sales. If you geninely have signed contracts with all those guests, I'm concered that you're going to be in financial trouble and not be able to deliver the convention as advertised. [Sorry for appearing to being down on this, but I have had experience of fan run conventions that have hit this very problem].


CarolD 02-16-2008 11:36 AM

The guests are attending unpaid, for the benefit of the charity. A number of them may sell photos of themselves (or books, or some other item) in the dealers' room; and/or may charge for an autograph, to help make a little money for themselves. But by and large they live local to the convention and will simply be driving over to spend a little time with the fans. They are not being compensated by the convention. Scott himself has not asked for any compensation whatsoever.

I don't blame you for being cautious -- I've had experience with a con myself (as an attendee) that got very overambitious and then couldn't pay the bills. But rest assured, that is not the situation here.

alsplacebartender 02-16-2008 07:40 PM

Carol is right - all our guests are volunteering their time. We got very lucky with them!

Our main bill is going to be to pay the hotel where we hold this. We are literally less than 6 weeks away from getting the contract signed. There will be an announcement soon on how we plan to raise the money for the deposit and following that - tickets will open!

Stay tuned here.

Rest assured that we are going to make this happen. We have a ton of people backing us not limited to the stars themselves. There is nothing at all to worry about with us.

Thanks for voicing the concern so that we could provide everyone with an answer!

michas-engel 03-11-2008 06:12 AM

which hotel?
I want to know at which hotel the convention will be happen?
If I know that, I can have a look at a hotel near this place.

tina_als_girl 03-11-2008 11:17 AM

I'd like to second Michas' question. I'm curious to know how much a hotel room will be so that I can see if I need a roommate or can afford it on my own (now that it's looking like I'm gonna have a job!).


EmmaCMF 03-11-2008 02:03 PM

We are very, VERY close to being able to announce the hotel (we literally just signed the contract). Expect details soon!

mand 04-22-2008 12:34 PM

is there a rough guide on how many tickets are left?

alsplacebartender 04-22-2008 02:04 PM

We still have a few Gold and plenty of silver left.

mark24 04-22-2008 03:20 PM

I know it's probably hard to say, but do you think the silver tickets will sell out sooner rather than later? I'd love to go but I dont know yet if i can make it.

mand 04-23-2008 02:25 PM

ok ta,

alsplacebartender 04-24-2008 06:22 PM

I really don't know. :)

CynthialovesQuantumLeap 11-09-2008 09:39 PM

Will there be a question and answer time like in previous conventions and is all ticket levels permited to that.
Also are the gold level ticket like me allowed in the dealers room when they sell their items.
what does third in line for all events mean?

alsplacebartender 11-10-2008 01:53 AM

Yes and yes!


Also are the gold level ticket like me allowed in the dealers room when they sell their items.

You'll be just behind the Diamond and Platinum attendees when it comes time to stand in line for anything.

Have the Gooshie's Programming (Saturday night party) tickets gone on sale/ sold out? I can't find a link to them on the LB website.

How long before the convention date will the ticket packages be mailed?

alsplacebartender 12-08-2008 02:28 AM

No, Gooshie's Programming events have not yet gone on sale - but they will this Tuesday at 11am EST!!! Keep an eye out for this!!

Ticket are not being mailed. Your email confirmation is your ticket along with valid government-issued ID. You'll get your name badge, etc when you register at the convention.

aussietrekker 01-22-2009 06:14 AM

Two questions- will Casey Biggs be performing with the Enterprise Blues Band?
How do I find the list of locations of attending members? Thanks.

alsplacebartender 01-22-2009 11:34 AM

Yes, he will.

I'm not sure about the second question.

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 10:02 PM.
