Brunch Tickets On Sale September 8

August 29, 2014 in Guests, News, Programming by JennAK

The much-anticipated sales for our Sunday Brunch begin on Monday, September 8 at noon CDT. An annual event, the brunch allows you to spend some extra time with many of our guests while enjoying a lovely buffet. The brunch will run from 10 a.m. – noon. We will post the direct Eventbrite link on our home page as well as to Facebook and Twitter when sales open. Only 80 tickets will be available for this somewhat-exclusive event.

As for cost, we are still determining that, but the tickets will cost no more than $60 each– and we’re working to get amount down. (Last year, the tickets cost $50/ea, but the hotel raised its prices to the convention for 2014.) We should have the exact amount we will be charging by next weekend. We wanted to get the date and time out to you all now, though, because we know many of you have to make special arrangements to access the Internet for personal reasons during the course of the work day.

Please note: not all guests will be participating in the Brunch. (Billie Piper and Camille Coduri, unfortunately, will not be at the brunch.) You must be a registered member of the convention (Reserved, Priority, Weekend, or Sunday-Only) in order to attend the Brunch.

Thank You For A Brilliant Weekend!

December 6, 2013 in News, Programming by JennAK

Chicago TARDIS 2013 succeeded in part because of your help– plus the generosity of our guests and the fortitude of our staff. This post will be expanded with further comments on Monday, December 9th– but we wanted to get the thanks out there NOW.

(We are also grateful for your patience and understanding regarding the photograph/autograph lines. We found out the hard way that although our system worked for 1200 attendees, it failed miserably for 2700. We will be fixing things for 2014, guaranteed.)

Sorry for the confusion! We will be posting signs whereever we can onsite about the change.

Final Version of Schedule Online

November 25, 2013 in Programming by JennAK

We have updated the Programming page with the version of the schedule that went to the printer– so you now have a preview of what you will pick up at registration. If you save the jpgs to your phone/tablet, you won’t have to worry about where the paper copy of the schedule got to over the weekend. If you’re wondering about a text-only online version, we will provide the link to it as soon as it has been updated to reflect the final version of the schedule.
