Got questions?

We’ve got answers! Take a look below for the satisfaction of some common curiosities.

Why so cheap?

Cheap? Hardly. We prefer the approach of “inexpensive.” For us, the aim is to keep the cost of having a great convention experience as resonable as possible. Sure, there are some huge things that could be done if we charged you $100 for the weekend, but Hypericon is intended to be an affordable, accessible, welcoming place for all, and that includes a great low price for access.

How come there isn't a two-day badge?

Do the math. It wouldn’t be a very good deal. But in all seriousness, sales of two-day badges tend to be very low. Most folks do the one day or three. Some conventions only offer the full three-day, but we want our gamers to be able to choose a day to make their own, so we offer that option.

So when does a one-day badge expire?

Any one-day badge is good until opening time of registration the following day. Yes, this means it’s good for late-night party time.

What's up with the fees?

We use Eventbrite for badge sales, and they do charge a very small fee for processing these registrations. The features of Eventbrite are well worth it for both organizers and attendees, and we only pass on the fee for the service, not the credit card processing fee. We’re essentially splitting the fees from Eventbrite with you, and we’re taking on the one that tends to be larger.

Where does the money go? Y'all getting rich on me?

While Nashville’s hotels are certainly not suffering right now, all costs of attending conventions tend to go into making it possible to host them at all. For instance, if we didn’t book hotel room blocks, our rental of the space would not be discounted, so your room helps make the venue possible to be used.

Your registration fees are the direct lifeblood of the event, alongside the dealer’s table fees. This funding helps pay for our amazing Con Suite and all the other resources (guest costs, A/V, materials, promotion, this beautiful website…) and such.

Currently, nobody is paid to help run Hypericon, but if we’re ever big enough to need to pay someone, you can bet they’re going to be working hard for you every day.

Why $42 and $52?

The answer to everything? The new 52? No? Well, we know where you can find some fabulous folks who will totally tell you. See you this Summer!
