In case you missed the Facebook post this past weekend, we have officially SOLD OUT of Exhibitors Booths! 173 DAYS to go — before the event in October. Think this is a new record! We still have Creator Tables and Clubs & Org spaces! If those apply to you or your interest. Thanks everyone!
Last year we had Year 8. We did a subtle touch of 8-bit to our fliers, website, t-shirts, etc. We didn’t want the 8-bit theme to override the idea that G.A.M.E. is for a variety of interest and not just video game / 8-bit fun.
This year we are doing everything NINE. You’ll see on Facebook and this website graphics that make announcements and then have a “9” theme to them. So, stay tuned and have fun.
We are pleased to announce our first Guest of Honor for Year 9 is author D.A. Roberts! Read more about him on our Guests of Honor page here: http://springfieldgame.com/project/guest-of-honor/
Sorry for the issues in registration payments. We have installed a new system involving WooCommerce and Stripe. Both of which will make the registration payment process SO MUCH easier for all our attendees. You won’t have to fill out multiple forms and go to different sites (PayPal / Square) to complete the process. It will all be handled on our site.
We hit a small snag in that we have to upgrade our PHP level and this involves moving to a better hosting account. This will all happen tonight — so that maybe by Saturday or Sunday all the registration points will be open. Stay tuned.
Thank you VERY much for your patience and understanding during this upgrade process.
We’ve had some situations pop-up very last minute over the past few days, concerning refunds.
If you have any questions about refunds, please review our policies posted here: http://springfieldgame.com/policies/
We will be planning to set-out “swag bags” this year. Only 400 bags will be made. First come first served. If you plan to place an item in the bag, YOU MUST have your items to the Expo Center on THURSDAY NIGHT. Anytime 5PM – 9PM. If you bring them in Friday morning — we will set your stuff on the table — and they probably will not be put in the bags — depends on staff and crowds trying to register.
The bags will fit a standard size piece of paper 8.5 x 11 inside. Anything bigger will be folded or rolled.
If you have less than 400 items — that’s fine — we will sprinkle them in randomly among the bags.
