Deadline Reminder

Greetings all

This is a quick reminder that several deadlines are coming up:

Convention book submissions are due April 29th, which is in just a couple weeks! Thus far, we have had zero submissions. So if you have something that you’d like to share with the community through the conbook, please submit it! You can get all the details here: http://www.mysterium.net/convention-book/

A few days later is the submission deadline for events, panels, and other activities on May 1st. You can get those details here: http://www.mysterium.net/events/

Finally, don’t forget that registration is currently open! You can buy your badges and t-shirts here: http://www.mysterium.net/registration/

That’s it for now, but keep an eye peeled over the next few days. We’ll be announcing an exciting special guest that will be at Mysterium this year!

Mysterium 2016 Registration Open

Greetings all,

I am happy to announce that pre-registration for Mysterium 2016 is now OPEN! You can get all the details here: http://www.mysterium.net/registration/

We will have information on the t-shirt logos sometime soon. Remember, the deadline for logo contest submissions is this coming Monday.

We will also have information about the hotel sometime soon. Negotiations are taking longer than anticipated, but we expect to be in our usual price range for guest rooms (somewhere around the $99-$119/night range).

That’s all for now!

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),

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,

T-Shirt Sales Closing

This is just a quick reminder that T-Shirt sales close tomorrow. At the same time, pre-reg prices will increase. So if you haven’t put in your order yet, now is the time!

As always, you can find registration details here: http://www.mysterium.net/registration/
