Warning to ticket buyers:  I will not use Transferwise ever again.  I used it as we were told we would get a discount on the Gatecon tickets.  However, unlike Paypal, it was treated as a cash advance on my credit card.  I was not aware of this.  In addition to Transferwise's fee, I was charged a credit card fee and interest on the "cash advance".  No savings at all.

I used my bank card and wasn't charged anything extra by my bank when I used Transferwise.  (There was a $3 fee charged by Transferwise, but that was something I was aware of).  ATfan, I noticed that you're from Canada. I'm from the US, so maybe that could be the difference.

That happened to me also. My credit card treated it like a cash withdrawal and slugged me a $18 Aus fee plus the transferwise fee. I will have to think of another way to pay. 🤔

I've returned from my business trip. I'm ready for banquet ticket sales and learning the date of the film location tour(Richard mentioned it could possibly moved to Thursday Sept 13, 2018)


Neither of these have been announced yet. It'll go up somewhere very visible when it happens.

Hi Krisz,
It will really depend on whether we have already reached capacity by then selling full weekend tickets.

Thank you for the info Richard. This year didn't seem so busy at work as last year so I'll probably take the chance that it will be ok to take the Friday off at least and go for it and buy a ticket. I would find it hard to miss Gatecon if weekend tickets aren't available nearer the time. Good though for Gatecon, you have a full house!!!  :)

Just checked on Tranferwise - the payment for the remaining money due on my ticket was processed today.  YAY!!!!  Now all I have to do is safe up for the flight, hotel, food, photo ops and autographs  :) ;)

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.
