Please see instructions for the waiting list here:
CLOSED - Official BGG.CON 2016 Waiting List - This is for Buyers and Sellers

Because we expect a quick sellout this year (edit: uh, yeah, but didn't expect less than 2 hours!!), unfortunately we need to make some changes to our policies to make sure we don't oversell and at the same time remain as fair as possible.

New, singular badge price: $110
In years past we have always had an "early bird" registration discount, expiring on May 31st. In 2014 we sold out sometime late June, early July. In 2015 we expected a similar registration span. We contracted additional space with the hotel (the 25's, ECL) and expected to have some registrations at the early bird price ($95) and some at the regular price ($120). That didn't happen - in 2015 we sold out in only two weeks, all at $95 per badge. This year we will certainly sell out before any "early bird" registration discount would matter (my money is on less than 100 hours). So we need to make a single badge price that is halfway between our two prices last year to better offset the new space.

No checks. Payment required via PayPal during checkout.
We've previously allowed mailed checks, 7 days for payment to be complete. Because this time around is expected to go so quickly, we need to be able to shut if off when full and not have an unknown number of otherwise valid registrations outstanding, waiting for payment.

Note: a PayPal account is not required to pay via PayPal, any credit card will work.

No refunds.
The official BGG waiting list will be ready to go as soon as we close regular registration. Those needing to cancel their registration for whatever reason will be directed to transfer their tickets via the waiting list. Use of the official waiting list is not required - you may transfer your badge as always, but anyone caught "scalping" badges (selling for above face value) will be banned from purchasing badges for any future BGG event.

Hotel deposit required.
A $50 non-refundable (but still transferable) deposit will be collected when booking a room at the Hyatt Regency DFW. We will also have overflow blocks setup at various other hotels as in years past.

BGG.CON Spring temporarily disabled.
While registration for BGG.CON 2016 is ongoing, BGG.CON Spring will be disabled in order to eliminate any confusion or accidentally booking the wrong event. Spring is around 80% full right now and we expect to open it back up again after BGG.CON sells out.

Wednesday Exhibitor Halls setup/media only.
In case it matters to your travel arrangements we are modifying the use of the Exhibit Halls on opening day, Wednesday November 16th. This day will be reserved for our exhibitors to setup their booth and conduct interviews with attending media. We do not offer complimentary media badges, but if you have a badge and send me your media information I'll mark your badge to receive a media ribbon allowing access on this day.

Policies
And finally because I'm sure no one will actually read the post when I make it next Thursday that registration is live, here's a reminder of our policies:
d10-0 Same location as last year: Hyatt Regency DFW Airport.
d10-1 Registration will be $110 per badge, no refunds.
d10-2 Our room-rate is $121/night + taxes & fees.
d10-3 You must show a copy of the confirmation email to get your badge.
d10-4 You must wear your badge and wristband at all times during the convention.
d10-5 Airport parking will be validated by the hotel for all convention attendees.
d10-6 Shuttle service will be provided to a variety of food and shopping options.
d10-7 No one under 12 permitted. Children under 18 must have an adult escort.
d10-8 Low resolution cameras may be in use in convention areas to assist in finding open tables.
d10-9 Abuse of any kind is not tolerated and we reserve the right to eject anyone from the convention without refund.

From the amount of people posting about how it isn't live yet, I'm starting to get flashbacks to GenCon's Housing Block.
