Ready to know all of the things?

Here we go:

 

VENUE ANNOUNCEMENT: Apollycon 2017 will be held at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at the Entrance at Universal Orlando!


APOLLYCON HOTEL ROOM BLOCK: There is a block of rooms reserved at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel, at a discounted rate. To book a room, go here or http://bit.ly/Apollycon2017-Hotel. You can book a room for an arrival as early as 3/19/2017, and check out as late as 3/31/2017 with access to the Apollycon 2017 rate. But act fast, the rooms sell out quickly!

If you get a message saying “Your requested rate is not available“, it may mean that one of the nights you indicated is sold out (within the Apollycon discounted rate); you will either have to book different dates, or you may have to pay a higher rate for the day(s) the room block is sold out. You can also call the hotel, and tell them the discount code is “APO“.

**If  the room block is sold out, you may still contact the hotel to inquire about other available rooms, but they may not have the discounted rate.


VOLUNTEER SIGN-UPS ARE OPEN!: Interested in becoming a volunteer at Apollycon 2017? Sign up here (http://bit.ly/Apollycon2017-Volunteers)! Please be sure to thoroughly read the form prior to submitting it.


A quick message about the book limit at Apollycon 2017…

**The following applies to both the Titan & General Signing Sessions:

Over the last couple of years, we have watched the Apollycon event grow and evolve. As you may have noticed, Apollycon 2017 will likely be our biggest event yet. There will be 70+ authors in attendance, and we want to make sure that we keep the lines moving at a steady pace to give all attendees an opportunity to get their books/items signed. That being said, there will be a 5 book/item limit per author. In other words: Please do not approach an author’s table with more than 5 books/items for the author to sign. **Please note: There may be some authors that have a lower book limit; we will make a formal announcement regarding this closer to the event. If you intend to bring more than 5, you will be asked to get back in line to get your remaining books/items signed. You will be permitted to get back in line as many times as you’d like during the signing period. But keep in mind, there may be a possibility that you are unable to get every book/item you’ve brought with you signed.
We encourage you to prioritize your books/items, in the off-chance you’re not able to have enough time to make multiple trips through the same line.
Thank you for your cooperation in advance!


VIRTUAL SIGNING UPDATE: Can’t make it to Apollycon 2017? We’ve got you covered! We will be offering up a virtual signing option, which will be open internationally!

Stay tuned, more details about this will be coming your way later this summer!


TICKETS: Tickets can be purchased here (https://apollycon2017.eventbrite.com)! The ticket sale will be live at 12PM EST on Friday, June 3rd, 2016. **There has also been a ticket update: The FAST PASS (which was previously announced) will no longer be available for purchase. For more info, check out the Apollycon tickets page, or the Apollycon website.

ICYMI: Apollycon is an event for readers across all genres (including YA, NA, and Adult), which includes a signing event featuring authors and special guests, as well as an after party where readers and authors can connect.

Here is the schedule of events:

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Time TBD (we will release this info closer to the event) – On-site Registration opens (to pick up badges, etc)

2pm-5pm – EXCLUSIVE TITAN SIGNING: This signing will be for TITAN PASS HOLDERS ONLY. All attending authors and vendors will be on site during this session as well. TITAN PASS HOLDERS PLEASE NOTE: This signing will end promptly at 5PM. If you still have books you need to be signed, you may attend the General Signing session on Saturday. (**We originally advertised this as a 2-hour signing. We are extending the Titan signing for an additional hour, so it is now a 3-hour signing.)

Saturday, March 25th, 2017

Time TBD (we will release this info closer to the event) – On-site Registration opens (to pick up badges, etc)

12pm-5pm – GENERAL SIGNING SESSION: This session is FREE to all attendees! Please keep in mind that we are asking that you still register to attend the event. All authors and vendors will be on site and available at this time. Some authors will be ticketed and/or have book limits (that may differ from the general book limitations which can be found in the FAQ section below), so please be prepared to adhere to the specified instructions. The signing will end promptly at 5PM, as we will need to clear the space for the after party which will be occurring later that evening. Also, we will be closing the doors to the signing area at 4:30PM. We will no longer permit attendees to reenter the room beyond that point.

8pm-11pmDEMIGOD AFTER PARTY: You must purchase a Demigod pass in order to attend. (This is included with both the Titan AND the Apollyon pass, so you won’t need to purchase 2 separate passes.)
