Conception Prices Reduced for 2015

It’s with pleasure that we are able to announce that we have changed our entry fees this year to the Conception convention. One of the changes that drove us to this decision was that we wanted to streamline the registration process, the easiest way to do that was to eliminate the pre-registration discount. But to make it up to you our attendees we slashed the entry fees from last year. Take a look at the differences:

2014: (Onsite/Pre-Reg) 2015:
1 Day Badge ($13 / $15) 1 Day Badge ($10)
2 Day Badge ($20 / $25) 2 Day Badge ($15)
Weekend ($22 / $30) Weekend Badge ($20)

Are you a student on a limited budget? No problem, you can now get into the convention with a valid student ID for only $5 per day.

We are also trying to get some events listed that are children friendly… why? Because we realize that many gamers have children under the age of 12 which can know come with you for FREE. That’s right children under the age of 12 are free with an paid adult badge.

Finally, if you are interested in volunteering with either setup or tear down of the convention, or if you are interested in running events we do provide discounts to the convention. Feel free to contact us for further information at “concentricevents (at) gmail.com”.
