Mysterium 2017: Registration Open!

Shorah!

I am happy to make two big announcements we’ve all been waiting for: hotel and registration information!

Hotel

Our hotel will be the Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando International Drive Jamaican Court. We’ve secured an exclusive convention rate of $119/night. This rate includes a suite with two doubles or one king bed, along with a sofa-bed in the second room. All rooms also come with complimentary self parking (the $15/day will be waived for our attendees), wifi, and breakfast cooked to order.

To book your hotel room, please visit our online booking site here. The site will allow you to book rooms between Thursday 8/3, and Tuesday 8/8. Additional nights are available at our group rate, subject to availability. If you require those extra nights, please see here for details on extending your reservation beyond those dates.

Our hotel is on International Drive. I-Drive is a popular part of Orlando surrounded by attractions, restaurants, theme parks, and shopping centers. Our Location page contains many more details about the area, including transportation options.

Registration

Registration for Mysterium 2017 is now OPEN as well! You can find all the details at our registration page here. Until June 9th, the cost for a full weekend is $25, and the cost for a full weekend with a t-shirt is $45. After that date, prices will increase, so be sure to register early!

As a reminder, the deadline for T-shirt logo contest submissions is April 14. We’ll announce the final T-shirt design shortly after that.

We’re looking forward to seeing all of you at the Embassy Suites in August!

Mysterium 2016 Hotel Information

Greetings all!

At long last, we are ready to announce that hotel bookings for 2016 are officially open. Mysterium will take place at the Best Western Plus CottonTree Inn, located at 10695 Auto Mall Drive, Sandy, Utah, 84070.

The hotel is a little ways outside of downtown Salt Lake, but there is public transportation available to get from the airport to the hotel, along with taxis/shuttles/rental cars. We’ll post information about getting to the hotel from the airport as we get closer to August.

We have secured a rate of $94/night, which is available from Friday, August 5th thru Tuesday, August 9th. Rooms with both one and two beds are available.

We have also secured a limited number of rooms for Thursday, August 4th at a rate of $130.

You can book your rooms by calling the hotel directly at 800-662-6886 and pressing 2 for the Sandy, Utah location. When you call, tell them you are with the Mysterium convention to get our group rates.

We realize that a limited number of more expensive rooms for Thursday isn’t ideal as most attendees like to arrive on Thursday. We anticipate that most people should be able to get a room, but, because some might choose to arrive on Friday instead, we will be sure not to schedule any of the “big ticket” presentations/events until later in the day on Friday. We’re currently working on the schedule and will let you know when that is available.

Don’t forget to register here: http://www.mysterium.net/registration/

We’re really sorry for how long it has taken to get hotel information out this year, but we’re very happy with the hotel we’ve chosen. We can’t wait to see you all this summer!

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.

Announcing the Mysterium Hotel

Shorah All

At long last, we are ready to announce the hotel for Mysterium 2015!

I apologize for the long wait. This time around it ended up taking much longer than usual to secure a hotel with the rates that we all expect at Mysterium. But in the end, we managed to get a very nice hotel!

The hotel for Mysterium 2015 will be the Boston Marriott Burlington. We’ve negotiated a room rate of $115/night for a room with two queen beds. As always, the convention itself will take place in one of the hotel’s large meeting spaces on the first floor.

To book your room, and to see other information about the location and the hotel, please check out our Location page. We recommend reserving early, to make sure you get a room. And don’t forget to register for the weekend and buy a t-shirt here.

I also want to remind everyone that we are currently accepting submissions for events, as well as for the convention book.

As always, if you have any questions, comments, friendly jabs, or good baking recipes, please feel free to contact us.

Until next time,
-Taniith, Mysterium 2015 Chair

Hotel, Registration, and T-Shirts, Oh My!

Shorah Myst fans!

It’s been a little while since our last update, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy behind the scenes. In fact, we’ve got four big announcements for you today!

Hotel Reservations Open

We’re pleased to announce that we will be returning to the Comfort Inn University District hotel next year. The Comfort Inn was our gracious host in 2009, and we’re looking forward to seeing you all there again. We have a limited number of rooms available for $89.95/night, so get your reservations in now! See our Location page for more details.

Pre-Registration Open

Why not register to attend the convention while you’re booking your hotel room? That’s right, pre-registration is open! Weekend registration is $25 per person, which includes a convention book and a couple of extra goodies. Pre-registration closes on July 4th, 2014, but why wait? Register now!

Logos for 2014

We are absolutely thrilled to announce the winner of this year’s logo contest: Jeston Tigchon! He submitted a marvelous proposal for both the front and back designs that celebrates our 15th anniversary and our Rivenese theme this year, and it completely blew us away. Here’s the back:

Mysterium ’14 Logo

 

And here are the five front designs!

All of which leads us to our next announcement…

T-shirts Available for Pre-Order

Jeston’s amazing artwork is now available for pre-order in shirt form, and there’s an added bonus: you can pick which design will go on the front of your shirt! Yes, you can get any one of the front logo designs mentioned earlier on your Mysterium 2014 t-shirt (pre-order quantities permitting, see the link below for more information). If you can’t decide, we’ve got you covered with a 5-pack of shirts at a $10 discount versus buying them separately.

This year is pretty important to us, and we want to make sure that everyone who’s ever been a part of Mysterium can have a chance to pick up a 15th anniversary t-shirt. Now, even if you can’t make it to Mysterium in 2014, you can pre-order a shirt to commemorate 15 years of fun, friends, and community hijinx.

T-shirts are available in sizes from Small to 3XL, and for the first time, we’re also pleased to announce that we’re offering them in a women’s cut as well! For more information about pre-ordering, please visit check out our t-shirt information page.

More to Come

That’s all we have for now, but we hope it was worth the wait! We’ll have more announcements coming in the next few months as we get closer to convention weekend.
