Mysterium 2015 Wrap Up – Part 3

We’re getting to the end of our post-Mysterium blog posts. I have a few things for you today.

First up, we’ve uploaded all of the videos we recorded this weekend. You can find the Youtube playlist here.

Next, we’ve put together a survey to help us get feedback from all of you. You can find it here. All questions on the survey are optional, but please be as detailed as you can. The more you tell us, the more we can tweak Mysterium to be a great experience!

The survey can be taken both by people who attended this year, and by those who couldn’t make it. So, please spread it around to any of your friends that might be interested in attending Mysterium at some point.

Finally, a reminder to please send us links to any photo or video albums you may have from Mysterium 2015, so that we can share them with everyone.

One Day Left & Guidebook

Greetings Myst Fans!

Tomorrow is the big day! We committee members are getting everything packed up today and heading over to the hotel. You can most likely find us (and other Myst fans) hanging around the hotel lobby.

Tomorrow morning, registration will open at 10AM (as it says on the schedule). We will be setting up the meeting room in the morning, so the doors will be unlocked, but please do not come in until we are official open (and you have your badge). It helps us set up faster if there aren’t extra people in the room.

Some people have been worried about internet access. Worry not! There will be free wifi in the meeting space, and we’ll have that information for you tomorrow.

guidebook-poster-no-handsAs you can see in the picture above (click for a larger version), we’ve once again partnered with Guidebook to provide a mobile version of the schedule, in addition to maps and info about the area. If needed, we will update the guidebook throughout the weekend. You can download it to your Android or Apple device by scanning the QR codes above. If you don’t have a compatible device, you can also access the guide from any web browser through this link.

This is sure to be an exciting year. I’ve had a sneak peek of what Cyan has planned (exclusively for people on-site), and you don’t want to miss it!

Until tomorrow (or tonight),

Hotel Reservation Deadline

This is just a friendly reminder to BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM if you haven’t already done so. You must make your reservation by July 7th (next Tuesday) to get our group rate. You can get all the hotel info on our Location Page.

Remember, we also have a forum setup for those of you that would like to arrange room (and ride) sharing. You can find the forum here.

Travel Info, Room Sharing, & More

Greetings All,

I have a handful of things to share with you today.

Registration, Shirts, and Hotel Rooms

Early bird registration has ended, which means that t-shirt pre-orders have also ended. You can still register online until July 24th. There will be a limited supply of t-shirts available for purchase on-site, for those that missed the cutoff date.

On a related note, when I last spoke to the hotel on Monday, we were within two rooms of hitting our initial room-block reservation. I don’t know how much space the hotel has available beyond that, so I would recommend booking your hotel rooms soon, if you haven already done so.

Travel Info

We have added a page that explains several options for getting to the Mysterium hotel from various starting locations. You can check it out here. That leads into…

Room & Ride Share Forums

The forums have returned (after a bit of database wrangling)! You can use the forums to find roommates to lower the cost of a hotel room, and for coordinating ride sharing on the way to the convention. I’ve pinned a post to the top of each sub-forum with directions on how to get the most out of them.

Submission Reminders

A few quick reminders:

If you were planning to submit an event/panel idea, now is the time! Submissions close at the end of this week, on June 19th. You can get all the details here.

Paper People submissions are still open. You can get the details from this post.

Finally, we are still looking for some kind souls to donate items for prizes. If you have any ideas, please drop us a line at info@mysterium.net.

The End

We’re getting very close now! Under two months to go. Next time, I hope to have a little teaser of something we’ve code named Escape the Age to show you. But until then,
