The Invasion 2018 / Re: Gatecon Ticket Types & Prices 2018

We have been taken aback by the number of people eager to buy Platinum tickets and the last thing we want to do is cause disappointment. Clearly, though, given the numbers, that will happen with some of you, even taking into account the decision we have made. We would have loved to be able to accommodate everyone but there are certain constraints that are beyond our control. With that in mind we have decided to open not one but TWO rows to Platinum tickets, meaning we can offer quite a few more places.

We will still offer the same perks and will keep the ratio of winning the Green Room draw at the same level by increasing the number of places available, so as not to devalue the  whole experience. It WILL, however double your chances of being one of the lucky people who will be able to buy a Platinum ticket. This does mean, though, that Gold tickets will start in row 3 and not row 2 as previously stated. Still very close to the stage.

As I said at the start, there will be still be some who will be disappointed but hopefully this will alleviate that for most of you.

The ticket draw numbers will decide your seat number as you will be assigned a seat according to the order of the number sequence to be drawn by, we hope, Erick Avari. If you miss out on a Platinum ticket you will be put on a waiting list (still in the order picked by Erick) in case anyone ahead of you doesn't proceed with their purchase. You will then be able to upgrade if you wish.

We wish all of you the very best of luck!

Quick question regarding platinum tickets.  Will people who pay in full get priority over people who choose a payment plan?  Example, if Susie is first in and orders 3 tickets on a payment plan and I am second in and order three tickets but pay in full, who gets the first three tickets?  Because with Platinum tickets "seats in the front row will be assigned in the order purchases are received, starting at the middle of the row and working out to the edges"
Because of the low number of Platinum tickets available there is a  limit in place on the shopping cart. The maximum number of Platinum tickets that can be bought by one person in a single transaction is 2.  There is no limit on the number of transactions you can make but each would be limited to 2 Platinum tickets.

After selecting your tickets and entering the ticket holder details, the payment options are presented - at this point you have options to pay with Paypal,  Transferwise or within the US, electronic bank transfers (full payment or installments for either).  When you have made your selection and reviewed your order you then press the PAY NOW button - at this point your ticket is on hold  If you elect to pay by Paypal you will be directed to the Paypal site to make your payment.  If you want to pay by the other methods the tickets will be held for 14 days.

The tickets are reserved as they are ordered and then validated when they have been paid for so there is no advantage gained with the speed of payment.

I've just emailed US Immigration to see if we are able to visit the USA to run a convention and what visa would be needed.

So I'm assuming I'd transfer US$ to Brittish Pounds?

We have a US bank account that can receive online payments in USD,  we will be listing the account details on the website
If you are able to pay bills online you should be able to pay into our account.  The bank account will only accept US Dollars.
Ian,  Will the bank info be posted or linked on the ticket ordering site so we know at that time where to send our Electronic payment?
The bank details will be posted on the website with full instructions on how to pay.  When you have reserved your ticket on the Gatecon site you will receive an order acknowledgement confirming your order,  it will have the Gatecon payment reference that will need to be submitted with your payment.  You can then log in to your bank account and make the payment.

Did I read that last line correctly?  The $10.00 discount does NOT apply to tickets purchased and paid for in full using PayPal?

Yes you read that correctly,  the discount does not apply to Paypal.
