Remember that prices go up in only 8 days!
There is a reason that prices are cheapest in the beginning of the year: We plan the convention NOW, and that plan is based on the number of members we have (I.e. the number of function rooms needed, the size of the bar/lounge needed, the number of special guests on the programme possible, the number and size of events surrounding the convention, etc). Also the actual programming (apart from special guests) is done based on the people that have bought a membership.
IF you plan to come (and you REALLY should, it is going to be AWESOME!), please buy your membership early. You SAVE money (up to 33%) AND you get a bigger and better con – compared to if you buy your membership later in the year, when all is fixed.
