TICKETED AUTHOR WRISTBAND RESERVE FORMS ARE NOW CLOSED!
If you’re not familiar with the Saturday session ticketed author process, please click here. *Note: This ticketed author system only applies to the 18 authors listed (click here to see the list). You will not need a wristband for the other authors within the 2017 lineup.
If you were unable to fill out the form(s), do not fret! There will still be wristbands available onsite.
**Due to a tendon injury in her hand, author Sarah J. Maas will have limited wristbands available onsite. She will only be personalizing one book per person, and each additional book/item (within the 5 book/item limit) will be stamped with her signature.**
We are currently in the process of confirming the thousands of entries submitted before the forms closed, and will be sending out confirmations via email late Dec-mid Jan. It is safe to say that if you were able to submit a form, and did so properly, you will have a confirmed slot within the reserve list(s). 🙂
Wheeled/Mobile Carts and Wagons Policy
Many of you plan to bring some impressive book hauls/stacks to ApollyCon 2017, and we know there are some of you wondering if there are restrictions regarding wagons/carts/luggage in the event space. Here’s the official announcement:
NO WAGONS WILL BE PERMITTED IN THE SIGNING AREA.
We expect a large amount of attendees for the Saturday (general) session, and we want to make sure that none of the lines/walkways are obstructed due to wagon-style wheeled bags/carts.
ONLY UPRIGHT CARTS/BAGS/SUITCASES (THAT STAND UP VERTICALLY) WILL BE PERMITTED WITHIN THE EVENT SPACE.
As mentioned, you can use an upright suitcase in the event space, but we ask that you do not lay the suitcases flat (to remove/add books) while in the lines/at author tables). Tip: If you group your books into smaller totes, and place them in your suitcases, they’ll be easy to access with your suitcases in the upright position.
Check out some examples of carts that are portable and permitted within the event space:
If you have any additional questions about this policy, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
