Symposium 2016 – Room Bookings & Tickets
This year’s International Steampunk Symposium opens in less than two weeks, but back in May 2014 we knew it was going to be a huge success when the host hotel room block was fully booked within a week . . . 50 weeks before the show!
The block was extended and we made many efforts to get all available rooms in the host hotel, snapping them up as fast as we could, but alas someone blundered. Several of the bookings made in the name of the Symposium actually took rooms from another group’s block and subsequently the hotel was forced relocate some of our people to neighboring hotels. This has been a frustrating experience for all involved and the hotel assures us that this mistake will not occur in 2016. To ensure that this error does not happen again the International Steampunk Symposium is administering all of the rooms in our block for April 2016.
The 2016 International Steampunk Symposium is scheduled for April 8th to 10th, 2016 at the Eastgate Holiday Inn.
Phase One of booking your room will be to pre-register one adult weekend badge per room needed.
Phase Two will use this list of pre-sales to notify the host hotel.
Phase Three, an email will be sent out to attendees on this list with instructions to confirm the booking with the hotel by providing the hotel with credit card information.
At this time there are 100 rooms available to attendees (50 are on reserve for staff, vendors, performers, and guests of honor), however, we also have room blocks at auxiliary hotels, and come March 2016 all remaining rooms from other blocks at the host hotel will be made available to Symposium attendees.
Between April 24th, 2015 and March 25th, 2016 regular (without a room) pre-reg tickets will be available with a base price of $65 for an adult weekend badge, but don’t buy your tickets just yet . . . not until you’ve found one of our discount codes and saved 20% off all your tickets.
