Welcome to the Gategoers board

Welcome to the Gategoers board!

Please feel free to use this board to discuss all your plans for attending The Invasion.
Link up with other attendees to room-share, do some sightseeing or just chat about the event and the guests.

This is YOUR area of the forum so please feel free to add topics and comments. If you are new to Gatecon or conventions in general there are plenty of 'old-timers' happy to impart their wisdom. There is no such thing as a silly question, so ask away.

As we may have younger members using the forum please remember to keep everything PG!!

Don't forget to introduce yourself too so we can also give a forum welcome!

We will be migrating all the relevant info from 2016 onto this board but for now it is all still available in the Homecoming archives.

Thanks, and enjoy.
Absolutely Everybody’s at Gatecon

Hi guys

Are the tickets for The Invasion available yet and how much are they (or will they be if they aren't)?

What happens over the weekend of the convention/what can I expect?  What would you recommend while we are over in Canada?  Is there any places you guys would recommend that are near the hotel?

Hi Carl,
No the tickets aren't on sale yet but we will be releasing details of the ticket types and prices soon, in advance of sales going live.

Likewise the event timetable hasn't been drawn up this far ahead but as a rough guide we tend to have on-stage panels followed by photo ops on Day 1, more photo ops followed by panels on Day 2 with panels followed by the auto session on Day 3.

There will be extra activities in amongst that such as the optional banquet, optional city filming location tour, harbour cruise etc. Last years' archived board will give you an idea of what to expect.

We also look to offer discounts to convention-goers to some of the main tourist attractions in the city.
Hope that helps for now.
Absolutely Everybody’s at Gatecon

Looking forward to another great event.  I've been seeing on the Facebook site that you will be doing a tier type ticket this time around.  I'm curious to see how much of a frenzy will occur at the opening bell to get the top tier before they're sold out.  Fingers at the ready.

If it's like any of the other times... they zoom pretty fast. =)

Hello.
William here adding my name to this forum. I came over from England last time, and am looking forward to attending the next con in Vancouver.
Please give plenty of notice as to when the tickets are going on sale.
I do not really mind where I sit, just as long as I get the ticket.
Already saving up for a look around the city next time if anyone would like to join us.
William...

We will be a group of 7 and none but I have already been to either Vancouver or Gatecon. They’re flipping out XD

I have better convincing skills than I thought XD


Can’t wait to see everyone!

Okay, not sure this the place to post this, but i have some sad new to relay.  (admin please feel free to delete.)

For those regular attenders, it is my sad duty to advise that Keith Woodend died on 6 April last.

His wife Sue has just advised via FB.

Regards

Sharon
