Massive Website Changes

So, while our website is still in flux (and not everything is up yet), we’ve added quite a bit of handy information this weekend for your enjoyment.

Make sure you poke around, but if you visit the attendee and vendor pages you’ll find some new information that wasn’t there before, along with printable, mail-in versions of our registration forms (which we know some of you were patiently waiting for). On the Attendee page you’ll also find a link to the documentation on Sponsoring No Brand Con (PDF).

Look out for more information and updates soon!

No Brand Con 2008 Registration Now Open!

We’re pleased to announce that both attendee and vendor registration is open for No Brand Con 2008, our seventh convention. Preregistering has many benefits, including saving a little cash ($30 for a weekend pass instead of $35, along with a discounted T-Shirt Cost) and the option to sign up for our annual Sunday Brunch with the Guests.

And vendors, remember that our Vendor room space can run out, so be sure to register as soon as possible!

A Thank You From NoBrandCon!

NoBrandCon 2007 wrapped up yesterday evening, closing what may be the best NoBrandCon yet! We’re sure a bunch of you are coming to the site for the first time – so why not check out our forums while you’re here? It will give you a chance to talk to your fellow congoers and talk about your favorite parts of this year’s con!

We reached a record attendance again (905 attendees at last count), making 2007 our biggest year to date, and we hope you all join us next year for NoBrandCon 7 in 2008!

Website Hiccup Resolved!

kaboom!

Hey folks – those of you who visited NoBrandCon’s website this week may have noticed a few glitches. You know, things like the site being down.

(That’s still a glitch, right?)

These were caused by problems with our hosting company, and we apologize severely for this ill-timed problem. But our webmonkeys went straight to work, fought through lines of code and data, and have been restoring the website! The forums are back up, as is this news section (obviously), and so much more. Thank you for bearing with us in this technically irritating moment, and we hope to see you all in person in a week!

That’s right, NoBrandCon is only a week away! Please feel free to dance around in joy.

Less than three weeks to go!

Are you excited yet?

You guys rock — we had a record-breaking pre-registration period, ending with over 300 people signed up for the con! To put that into perspective, that’s twice the pre-regs and half the total attendance for 2006. 2007 will be nothing short of amazing.

We start sending out confirmation letters this week, so keep an eye on your mailbox. If for some reason you don’t get yours before you leave for the con, just make sure you have a photo ID handy — we have everyone in our system, so either way it won’t take you long to get in the doors.

Thanks again everyone for making this another record-breaking year. We look forward to seeing you later this month!

Good news! One more week to pre-register!

Due to some webhost difficulties, we’re extending the registration deadline one more week! You now have until Friday, March 30th to pre-register for No Brand Con 2007! One more week, isn’t that exciting? If you’ve been having trouble at all getting the online registration (or the site in general) to work, fear not! If your frustration has lead to to think you were going to miss it entirely, there’s always the printable form available on the site as well.

While online registration will close on the 30th at midnight (technically the 31st, I suppose), you only have to have your mail-in registrations postmarked by that time. So as long as you get your letter to your mail carrier or post office before 5pm (earlier in some places), you should be good to go. We’ll be waiting for them to all come in, and we’ll be sending out confirmation letters as fast as we can get ’em!

Note: this extension DOES NOT INCLUDE deadlines for No Brand Comic, Panel submissions, the AMV contest, or any other area of convention participation with a deadline — these items are still due tomorrow, March 23rd. Again, any mail-in items only need be postmarked by that date.

Also, in case you missed it, No Brand Alumn Tiffany Grant will be joining us once again for her fourth year! It’s a neck-n-neck tie between her and Joe!

Good luck, and see you at the convention!
