Those of you who attended last year’s Chicago TARDIS may have noted the huge gap in seating we had in Main Programming. The first row was generally filled with our All-Access Members… and rows past 7 were jammed packed with our general admission members. In between? The gap that was Reserved seating. Realizing that most people bought Reserved to get priority in our autograph and photograph lines, we decided to create a new category of membership.
Our Priority Membership is a weekend membership with 3rd highest priority in lines, early access to online autograph/photograph session sales, and early access to the dealers room on Friday morning. Seating in Main Programming for this membership will be with the general admission memberships (i.e. row 6 and higher, not reserved).
We have reduced the number of Reserved memberships– siphoning them off to Priority– in the hopes of creating less of a gap between the stage and the audience. Those members who like the perk of having a seat reserved in their name will still be able to have the seat saved for them… and those members who don’t care where they sit as long as they can get priority in lines can now be better accommodated.
Full details on our 2014 Membership categories– including pricing– can be found on our Registration page. 2014 memberships go on sale Friday, February 14 at noon (CST).
