So I've never been to a con...but I've looked longingly at many con websites and I've noticed that some of them have spouse or guest pricing. My husband is coming with me and although he's a wonderfully supportive of my habit he does not want to attend panels and other book/author related events, but he does want to eat.
Does AAD have anything like this?
Thanks

AAD's registration is for the MEALS not the attendance for the con. So if he would like to eat, he will have to pay the registration price includes 5-6 meals. 3 lunches, a dinner, a breakfast and probably a welcome event.

Thanks for getting back so fast on that.
Good to know.
Also, as an aside, thank you for having a reasonable registration price.

Well yes... that's because Registration pays for your meals only. we work with the hotel to get US a very generous price for the convention to BE at the hotel, and unlike other cons, we pass the savings on to the attendee. AAD doesn't make money off this con.

Also, the room rate is the LOWEST to ever come from the Hotel we are using in the HISTORY of the hotel's con hosting. I'm really happy they were willing to work with us!

Good question!

Honestly? With the amount of buzz we have already for 2012 we are betting its going to be less then a month to full up the 400 people for 2012. This year we sold out of the hotel in a month, and the registration in 3 months... So I honestly dont know.

Okay...so we should plan on registering right away, and reserving our room also.
Do you have an idea as to when registration will open for 2012?

September 2011. Not sure when but I am thinking, bearing unforseen circumstances, the first week of the month (probably after Labor Day weekend)

Oh!

An actual question about 2012!

What is the hotel's policy on large-ish gatherings in-room? i.e. - the night before the con starts, can we semi-publically invite people for a meet and greet in a room? Or do they only want us to have "events" in public spaces?

bounce I haz a ? You know me Stella, you know I've always wanted to see people bobbing for dildos. Someone, somewhere has to do this. I was thinking, and I have no details on how to pull this off just yet, but for 2012, would you consider having this as a game for charity? Maybe a donation to help fight prostate and ovarian cancer could be the price: you bob, you get a prize and a free make-over? I mean if I could find all the resources for it or something, do you think this would be possible? Surprised

Hey Stella -

Any way we could get some range for the room rate they are offering? I'm trying to see if I can budget the RT in Chicago AND AAD. But to be honest, NOLA sounds soooo much more fun than Chicago Wink

Thanks for the FYI about possible registration announcement for NOLA AAD 2012. Do not want to miss out on getting registered. Sure sounds like lots of people are interested.
