No Brand Con comes to Geek.kon!

Hey folks, many of our staffers are going to be down at Geek.kon in Madison this weekend! It’s a great convention in Madison, WI — so you should stop by if you have the time. While you’re there, say Hi to some of your favorite No Brand Con staffers at our table in the “Other Cons” room and some good friends of No Brand Con in the Vendor room like Rising Stuff and Taeliac Studio! I should also mention that this year, like last year, Geek.kon is free, so it’s pretty easy on the wallet.

Sadly, because they are not in a hotel, we won’t be running an official room party at Geek.kon, but we sure would like to see you there!

Announcing No Brand Con 2009!

We made an unofficial announcement on our forums a few weeks ago, but everything is confirmed now to announce No Brand Con 8!

April 24-26, 2009

The No Brand Heroes will return to the Ramada Convention Center, so stick around. The website will be updated in the next few weeks to reflect this…

…and to reveal next year’s theme.

Still Looking for a Hotel Room?

For those of you who are still looking for a room last minute, you may have noticed that the official Hotel has been full for a while, as is our primary backup hotel. Because of that, we’ve set up another backup hotel. It’s a bit away from the convention center, so you’ll need to drive down to the con from there, but it’s easy to find from the freeway.

Our backup hotel is the Heartland Inn —

No Brand Con 2008 Preregistration now Closed!

Hey folks, it’s April 1st, and that means (besides the fact that you should check your chairs for whoopee cushions) that No Brand Con preregistration has closed. The final count isn’t in yet (as we still need to tabulate our mail in registrations) but early results show that we’ve beaten last years prereg count quite handily.

We think that’s pretty neat.

Confirmation letters will be going out at the end of the week, so make sure you check your mail.

Just to remind you, that if you missed the chance to preregister, that you can still attend No Brand Con (albeit for a slightly higher price) – so don’t let having forgotten to preregister keep you from attending. We still would love to see you there.

No Brand Con Podcast #2

Hey there! While the No Brand Heroes are busy fighting evil, we thought we’d bring you the second No Brand Con Podcast to continue the entertainment extravaganza. In this installment Topher talks to Ross, the No Brand Con workforce organizer, about volunteering at No Brand Con. He also talks to Katie about what to expect at this year’s No Brand Con Dance. Finally, Connor Rants about something. It’s full of fun, trust me.

I know you’ve probably been scrambling to preregister to make it by the March 21st Deadline — but fear not! We’ve decided to extend No Brand Con preregistration until March 31st!

That’s right, you have a whole extra ten days to preregister for No Brand Con 2008!
