New Guest Announcement, And Don’t Forget to Preregister!

We’re speedily heading towards this year’s convention, so of course that means more announcements for you! First and foremost, we’re excited to announce that we’ve added a new guest to our roster: Lewis “Linkara” Lovhaug.

Lewis is the host and creator of the webseries Atop the Fourth Wall, where for over eight years he’s been reviewing comics and more. You can learn more about Lewis over on our guests page.

We also want to remind you that time is running out to preregister for the convention this year! It’s only going to be open for a few more weeks, and by preregistering you save $10 on the price of admission. Preregister online today!

Submit a Fan Panel to the Nerd & Tie Expo!

One of the best parts of any convention are panels run by fans like you. We want to hear your best ideas for programming – from the funny to the informative to the weird. We want you to show off your knowledge and expertise on the very things that make you a nerd like the rest of us.

If you’d like to submit a panel, head on over to our panel submission page and send us your best — but don’t delay! Time’s running out, as panel submissions close August 23rd 2016.

The Nerd & Tie Expo Road Show TeamTM is packing up and heading to the Wisconsin Dells tomorrow for No Brand Con 2016! Nick, Pher, Trae and most of the Nerd & Tie Expo team are going to be there, and you can find them at our table in the Ambassador Alley.

Artist Alley Applications Closing Soon

Due to the high number of submissions, we’re going to be closing Artist Alley Applications on Monday, April 4th. We know it’s a little earlier than intended, but we want to make sure we have a chance to review every application thoroughly to ensure the most variety this September. If you haven’t applied yet, here’s your chance!

Vendor applications will remain open through the end of April as originally intended.

Vendor & Artist Registration Now Open!

Hey everyone, it’s that moment some of you have been waiting for — applications for the Vendor Room and Artist Alley are now open for 2016! You can find links to both the Artist and Vendor forms over on our Vendors & Artists Page.

Like everything else with the Nerd & Tie Expo, space is very limited in both sections – so we can’t guarantee everyone a spot. We’re going to try and guarantee the most varied group of vendors and artists we can, so please be as thorough as possible in any any application submitted.

Applicants will receive a response by May 31, 2016 as to whether or not they have a spot in the room, and payment won’t be required until after that date.

We’re Having a Black Friday-Cyber Monday Sale!

So are you as excited about the Nerd & Tie Expo as we are, but have been waiting for the right moment to preregister? Well that moment is coming up! In the grand tradition of Black Friday (and the completely media invented Cyber Monday) we’re having a sale!

From Friday November 27th until Monday November 30th, we’re temporarily slashing prices on both Preregistration and Sponsorship packages. How much are we slashing the prices? Some by a little, and some by a lot. This is how it breaks down:

That’s the cheapest price we will ever offer the Gold Sponsorship for, so it’s kind of a big deal. Prices will snap back to their normal levels on December 1st, so make sure you take advantage of this awesome deal while you can!
