CANCELLATION OF OKAMICON (ALL EVENTS!)

8 Feb

Due to my recent transfer out of state, I will no longer be able to maintain both OkamiCon Nevada and OkamiCon Utah. As a result, both events have been canceled  and suspended indefinitely. This includes the following planned events:

OkamiCon Nevada 2013 – May 17th and 18th, 2013

—————————-


For Those Who Have Pre-Registered:
You have been issued a full refund VIA PAYPAL. I have also sent a confirmation email to the email address used for purchase, stating that a refund has been issued.

For PAID Vendors: Vendors will be receiving a full refund of their booth purchase price within the next few weeks. This refund will be issued BY CHECK and will be mailed to the address on file. An email notification of the refund will also be issued.

Thank you again for everyone who has attended our previous events.

For anyone who is interested in purchasing left over supplies (including our sound system) please contact me at WHITEWOLF @ OKAMICON.COM (remove spaces).

Masqurade Opening Dates / OkamiCon Utah

5 Feb

Here are a few important updates about a few things regarding questions that have been submitted to me or brought up:

Masquerade Online Submissions
Thank you for those of you who brought to my attention that Masqurade Online Submissions had not opened yet. They where not intended to open on January 15th and that was an error on my part that it said as such. The correct date of February 15th has been added and they will open on that date. This is because I am trying to change quite a few thins over (such as email, etc.) and want to make sure that none of your submissions get lost. I am also trying to stream line a better solution for the submission process that hopefully will require less paperwork and headache later on. Thank you for your patience and understanding for these recent delays. Believe it or not, my real life comes first and conventions sometimes have to come in a close second.

OkamiCon Utah Dates
Quite a few people have been asking me regarding the dates for OkamiCon Utah. So I will make an official announcement regarding them here: The dates are currently pending and will be announced after immediately OkamiCon Nevada or at the event. I know some of you may think that this is cutting it a little short but there is a reason for it. I know you are all very excited to know when it is but you are just going to need to sit tight for a while longer.

Thank you very one for all your help and sorry things been falling a little behind. Like I said, my real life has been super busy that is just how it is. Remember that you can now pre-register for your badge to OkamiCon Nevada 2013 so don’t forget to sign up!

Event Updates and Pre-Registration Now Open!

1 Feb

Hey guys!

After a slight delay to that nasty flu bug that has been going around, Pre-Registration opened a little later than previously announced (which was Jan 15th) but it is now open and ready to go!

May 17th – Day One
———————————————–
Early Registration & Badge Pickup: 10:00AM – 11:00AM
Event Time: 11:00AM – 5:00PM
Single Day Pre-Registration: $20.00
Single Day At Door: $25.00

May 18th – Day Two
———————————————–
Early Registration & Badge Pickup: 10:00AM – 11:00AM
Event Time: 11:00AM – 8:00PM
Single Day Pre-Registration: $20.00
Single Day At Door: $25.00

With pre-registration, you will be able to buy either the Single Day Pass (good for one day of your choice) or Double Day Pass (good for the whole weekend.) Due to the large amount of pre-registration we tend to get and because we are going two days this year, we will not  be doing customizable badges. 

Event Updates

Our special event programing page has been updated with information for the KOMA Gaming Tournament. This year they will be holding both a free-to-play tournament as well as a paid-to-play tournament. The PTP tournament will involve a cash prize so it will be worth it. Please see our webpage for details which will also link to their facebook page which has the current gaming roster.

Vendor Registration

Starting on Monday (or sooner if I get to it), I will be sending out emails to all previous vendors regarding participating in this year’s Double Vendor Rooms. We still have plenty of spaces available so if you are interested, get in early for prime spacing in or Falcon East Room.

A 10’x10′ Booth will include 1 Table, 2 Chairs and Table Covering.
A 10’x20′ Booth will include 2 Tables and 2 Additional Chairs (If desired) and Table Coverings.
All Booths Include: 2 Convention Passes, Temporary Nevada Sales Tax License, OkamiCon Exhibitor Packet.
