Yes, very exciting!

For those who qualify as press or pros, applications will open up next week. If you submit before September 29, they will give you a decision by October 6, which is BEFORE the general attendee sale. I am super-impressed at this level of organization and can only hope that CCI might follow their example... ;)

So, if I buy passes for ECCC and then it turns out I can't go-are you allowed to sell them at cost? I still haven't fully committed to going because it is so close to Gallifrey One, but I don't want to miss out on passes in case I can.

It's like other ReedPop cons. Officially you are not allowed to resell/transfer badges. Realistically, if you can't go and you sell your badge to a friend at cost, ReedPop isn't going to care. At the con, scalpers stand right outside the convention center doors selling badges.

If you decide to participate in the sale, send me a PM.

I am going to try I think for the 4 day ticket. We don't know yet if Alexi will be stationed stateside or overseas, if she stateside I'll be visiting her but if she is overseas I'll be able to afford to go to ECCC since I won't be traveling to see her.

Good luck everyone with tickets. This one is not in the cards for me this year. I may try in 2019, and skip Gallifrey (it hurts to even type that).

Maybe I will try out Wondercon this year...

Sorry to hear that, Ang!

Honestly, since you're into Doctor Who, I'd say that Gallifrey is a better con. ECC is a fun con, but it's not as detailed or intimate as Gallifrey. You'll have a broader appeal, and a lot of high quality smaller panels, but the main stage is just single actors with Q&A. No studio panels.

WonderCon is worth making an effort to attend, if only because it's 'Comic Con Lite' and there are studio panels and a chance to see some good content from a Hollywood perspective.

I tried in my meeting but got an error saying tickets went on sale September 27, 2017 and finally got into the waiting room. I couldn't get back to the laptop and thankfully my wife got logged in and got 2 4 days and Grand Hyatt. We spoke about it last night but she had Dr appointment this morning and wasn't sure if she'd be home in time.

After a few nice write up, reviews and endorsements of ECCC from TJ in particular, I took the plunge and went last year and had a great time! It's a big con that still feels small. It's a big con in the sense it has the large variety of pop culture areas like a NYCC and SDCC but on a much smaller scale thus the small con feel. To me it's very comparable to WonderCon IMO but less Hollywood presence.

I highly recommend it. My biggest endorsement would be to say it was a good enough Con where I'm going again this year! Ticket, flight, room and rental car secured!

I didn't realize you were coming again this year, KarateKid! I'm glad you got tickets.

I agree, it's a bigger con with a smaller con feel.
