As the time of the Beach City Con Kickstarter draws near, the organizers have released some information that you should know.
Ladies and Gentlegems,
Since we sent out our first email, we have received several questions about the convention, and we would like to clear them up before our Kickstarter begins.
When does the Kickstarter go live?
We will be launching aton .
Can I buy multiple tickets with the same donation?
Unless multiple tickets are specified as a reward (Steven and Crystal Gem tiers), you will have to make separate donations for each ticket that you would like to purchase. This is the only way we can keep track of how many weekend passes we have sold through the Kickstarter and therefore make sure there are a certain number left for the public.
What does “receiving a booking code” entail?
Once you have donated at a level that includes a weekend pass to Beach City Con (Peridotite and above), we will email you with the booking code needed to secure lodging at our venue. Call #757-481-9000, give them the code, and you can book your room for Beach City Con 2017. Please do not attempt to book a room prior to receiving a booking code as we are not be able to guarantee you will get the convention rate without the code.
Do I have to stay at the venue to participate in the convention?
No, but certain programming will be restricted for those not staying at the Virginia Beach Resort Hotel and Conference Center. We urge you to stay onsite if at all possible.
Is a room included in the cost of a weekend pass?
No, you are responsible for securing your own rooms. Rates can be found on our location page. The one exception to this is our Crystal Gem tier, which includes accommodations with your donation.
What about food?
Food is not included with Beach City Con tickets, however, there are microwaves and fridges in all suites and two dining facilities onsite.
Can I donate even if I don’t plan on attending?
Absolutely! Plus, if Beach City Con 2017 is a success, we hope to move the convention to different beach locations in the future, which should give more people an opportunity to attend.
What’s the difference between “guaranteed” and “priority” panel seating?
“Guaranteed” means we’ll save you a seat in general, “priority” means you’ll be seated near the front.
Will members of the Crewniverse be at Beach City Con 2017?
As of this time, we need to see how our budget looks after the Kickstarter ends before we can begin approaching possible guests. We are looking into it, though, and we hope to include flex goals for our Kickstarter that would cover possible Crewniverse guests!
What is the difference between a ticket and a weekend pass?
They are the same thing. We are hoping to offer single day tickets for Beach City Con 2017, but they cannot be purchased through the Kickstarter. Details about day passes will be forthcoming well in advance of the convention.
If I buy a ticket through the Kickstarter and book my room, what else do I have to do to register as an attendee for the convention?
We will give you several months to register through our third-party ticket seller,Grenadine. There will be no charge to do so if you have already purchased a weekend pass through the Kickstarter.
If I donate to get access to the early ticket buying window, how will I do that?
You will receive a coupon code that will give you access to an early ticket buying window on Grenadine.
Can I give out the coupon code to my friends?
Each code will be good for up to two tickets. After the early ticket buying window closes, if there are weekend passes left over for the general public, there will be no similar restrictions on the number of tickets you can purchase in one order.
We are overwhelmed with all the interest, support, and positivity already being sent our way. We are so excited for Beach City Con!
Until next time,
Tara Lynne, Mayor of Beach City Con
K-K Bracken, The Mayor’s Son
