I know the organizers are taking off a few months to recover before they start planning for 2017

They probably won't announce anything definite until they've had some time to recover from this one. =)

You've already said that. I want to hear from Fryn or Richard.

After this last event, you owe yourselves a nice long rest.  Have you considered checking yourselves into an asylum?

They just checked out of one! It's called Homecoming!  😆

Hi everyone,
We are now able to confirm our dates for next year as Friday 14th to Sunday 16th September.

We shall be returning to the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel and the hotel will shortly be launching their Gatecon booking page offering Gategoers a discounted room rate as usual. Please note that these blocked rooms will be limited in number so please be sure to book early. We will let you know when they are ready to accept bookings.

The actual format of the event is still being decided so we are unable to announce guests etc at this early stage - although some of our Gatecon favourites have already expressed an interest in attending. We may also open it up to other locally produced shows or local actors, as we did with the cast members from Dark Matter last year.

The Friday to Sunday are the main convention days but you can expect to see extra optional trips added on to the itinerary either side of those main days.

Tickets will be going on sale in due course but we will announce prices, ticket types and the sale date well in advance to give you time to prepare and plan. Although we will continue to use last year's mailing list for the general announcements we will start a fresh list for ticket holders only once tickets have gone on sale. You will also be able to keep up with the news on our Website, Facebook, Forum and Twitter pages.

Ticket Payment Plan

A heads up and due to time slipping by we have to have a cut off for the 6 month payment plan so if you wish to make use of the 6 month plan you need to purchase in the next two weeks.

After that we can offer the 3 month plan until April after which we will only be able to accept full payments.

Teryl Rothery (Dr Janet Frasier) has recorded a fantastic Gatecon promo video message for us.

Platinum and Gold tickets are now sold out so head over to the website to grab a silver or copper while stocks last.

We have a few updates for you for various areas of the convention:

Volunteers
Many thanks to everyone who has submitted a volunteer crew application form so far. Apologies for the delay getting back to you. Unfortunately Candace is unable to be with us in September so we have been busy appointing a new Volunteer Coordinator.

Sharon Drake will be looking after the volunteers this year and she will be getting in touch with you all shortly.

It's not too late to volunteer and we welcome applications via the Gatecon website.


Banquet
Tickets are still available for the Friday night banquet with after-dinner comedy entertainment from Gary Jones and Peter Kelamis while Colin Cunningham provides the music with his band WTF.

Tickets can be purchased via the My Gatecon section of the website.
Important - there are still a few people who have purchased banquet tickets but have not let us know their main course. If we do not hear from you, your default meal will be the vegetarian option. Platinums don't forget your banquet is included with your ticket but you still need to choose your main course.


Bus Tour
Tickets are still available for the filming location bus tour taking place on Monday 17th September (via My Gatecon),. If you have already purchased a ticket you will be getting your confirmation shortly. Meanwhile if you are hoping to be on the same bus as friends please drop me a line (gatecon.events@gmail.com) with your name and the person you would like to be with.

Registration
With today's world climate we are increasing our security measures at the convention. This is for everyone's safety and convenience. Therefore you will be required to present photo ID when collecting your pass/es. This can be driving licence, passport etc.

Merchandise
The cutoff date for ordering merchandise is July 10th.
Being mindful of the unnecessary wastage of natural resources there will be a very limited supply available for sale at the event.
Hoodies will only be available by pre-ordering and will not be stocked at the event.
Regarding T shirts, there will be a limited supply of M, L and XL available at the event, if you fall outside of these sizes you will need to pre-order.
To avoid disappointment please make sure your merchandise order is completed and paid for by the cutoff date.

Please don't forget that for all tickets and merchandise you need to complete checkout and payment for your purchases to be guaranteed. Any shopping carts with items in them that have not been completed will not be valid.

Photo-Ops
We will be launching pre-sales for photo ops shortly, payable by Paypal. We will give you advance notice of this along with the prices for the guests. We can only pre-sell the contracted numbers of photo ops. Anything beyond that will be available on the door, subject to time constraints. To avoid disappointment we advise you buy in advance.

Guest Appearances
At this stage the itinerary is still being put together but we do know that not all guests will be with us for all three days. Amanda, Michael and Lexa are contracted for the Sunday only and so we will be conducting their photo ops on the Sunday morning* and autographs in the afternoon. They will also appear on stage of course.


*Please note as we need to include these photo ops on the Sunday morning it will mean missing any on-stage panels when you have photos taken - we hope the people involved on these panels will have already been on-stage on the Friday or Saturday so you should not miss anyone.

Payments at the event
We will be accepting payment at the event for merchandise and photo ops by cash (US and CAD $) or by Paypal . All autographs will need to be paid in cash as that money goes straight to the guests on the day (a full list of autograph prices will be published nearer the event).

Hi there!

I do have one question related to the banquet ticket.
As I own the Gold ticket, I will be in the draw to sit on a table with an actor, but what if I didn't "win" at this draw?
Will I be able to sit on another table with fans like me and still can be part of the banquet? Or am I not even allowed to sit there then? I was a bit confused about it and before maybe buying it, I wanted to make sure about it! :)
Thanks it advance for the answer :D
