I have a few questions, if the mods don't mind?

1.) Does ACEN offer an art show in addition to the Artist Alley?

2.) When will the info for the Artist Alley become available?

Thank you. =^_^=

THis is more about the special 10th anniversary badge.

I pre-regged at Ohayocon, but as I was on my last bit of cash and was having issues with my bank card, I couldn't afford to get the special badge.

Although I have already preregged, will their be a way to upgrade from a normal badge to the special one?

I'd like to know if you have to 18 to be able to reserve a hotel room. *blinks* If they still exist, that is. o_o;

It was stated on one of the other threads that you'll be able to upgrade to a 10th Anniv badge & choose the mail option.

Yes we do!
A lot of the info is on the new site, which should be appearing for you soon as the DNS repopulates. you can also ask in the Artist Alley section of the forums, under programming.

I appreciate the updates and the questions answered (I had similar Qs) but it's horrible that you guys made so many changes (and that the Hyatt remod isnt helping! grrrr) so quickly and now I am personally confused and head is aching.

My boyfriend registered himself and me at Reactor. They told him badges would be mailed this year, I kinda assumed it would become law, and not an option with extra charge. :P And I like the idea of a LE badge, so I am assuming that once you guys get people-who-have-already-registered's info into your system, you will then have on the new site the two extra options (mailing/special badge) available. So how will PAYING for chosing one or two work? Im not too clear on that, sorry!!!!! :sweatdrop

Sooo much info o.O;;;;;;;;;;; I guess the only things I am concerned about are getting the badges and the hotel info. I hope they remodel it good, for having raised the rates >.:mad:

And I suppose that credit card is the absolute ONLY way to pay for a room right? I have personally never done so and Hyatt never responded and nowhere does it say it bluntly. How in convenient :mad:


Rooms at hotel are generally secured by Credit Card so you don't just make a reservation and then stiff them by not showing up/paying.

The deposit for the Hyatt is due on the 19th of April.

I believe you can make alternative arrangements to pay via cash/etc. but you should call and talk to someone at the hotel to see what their policies are regarding this.

Does anyone know when the online registration will be open? Also, in the past I heard that children 12 and under were free - how do we register them for the convention or do they just tag along on our registration?

Thanks for the info!

There *should* be a specific set up that allows you to register children twelve and under with the online form. I know that the offline registration form doesn't have any specific box or anything to check to notify registration that you are registering a child, but just make a note of it and I'm sure it will be fine. The only restriction is that only two children can be registered for free per one adult paid registration, at least, that's what it has been in the past. In regards to when online registration is up, I would just keep looking back in. It should be up soon. :)

I hope this helps!

If Illinois works anything like up here in Montana, you have to be 21 to reserve a hotel room. The reason why is you have to be of legal age to drink. Anybody can be in a room, but the person who has the room under their name has to be over 21.

Last I heard, rooms are still open...I got mine three days ago, and the reservationist had no trouble getting exactly the kind of room I wanted (two beds, nonsmoking). Two years ago, I made my reservation as late as March 1, but I wouldn't wait that long (got stuck with a single king bed smoking).

Uhmm Just so you know the Hyatt is being remolded. One of the things going is the pool!!! Which might mean no fountain. Also I know that video programming would like to move back to the Rosemont Ballroom area this year-which is on the other side of the hotel from where the fountain once stood.

Once we know more of the layout we will let you know of some good landmarks to get people together at for photoshoots.

I was 18 last year and the room was under my name. I was able to get the room and everything. My mother is the one who reserves, but she puts it under my name. So... I dunno. I had no issues last year, so I think you have to be 18 or older.
