A-kon 26 Group Order the Second

Postby animetriplicate » Tue Mar 03, 2015 1:03 am

Hello all!

We're holding a part two to our A-kon 26 group order! As a reminder for those of you who have no idea what this means, A-kon offers a 15% discount on badges if they are bought in a group of 10 or more. MEK National attends A-kon in order to run various panels, so to help get our members into the con to see all the nifty things we do, we host a group order for you all! We take your badge payments, lump them together, and buy them all at once so you get your badge a little cheaper. Additionally, we will pick up your badge for you at the convention and deliver it to you so you don't have to wait in line! You are free to opt out of this for any reason, but most people take advantage of it.

A-kon 26 is going to be held June 5 - 7, 2015 at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas. Please remember that you will need to arrange your own transportation to the convention, as well as any sleeping arrangements for the weekend.

This time, a single, full-weekend badge will cost $42 $46.25*. This is 15% off the current badge price of $50, plus the $3.75 A-kon is now adding to every bought badge to cover the cost of new equipment for registration to use. Last year's at the door price was $65- if you're interested in going, buy a badge now!

This order will be made via A-kon's online registration form, and as such we will need all of the information detailed in this document in order to get your badge. There will be printed copies of this at meetings, though you are of course free to print out your own or simply send me a message with the information.

You have several payment options, as follow:
  • Cash
  • Check made out to Mu Epsilon Kappa
  • Credit card (please note that there will be a $1.25/badge convenience fee added on to card payments)
  • PayPal payment (please contact me either via PM here on the forums or at animetriplicate(@)hotmail.com to arrange a PayPal payment. You will be asked to provide your information in advance and then provided a link to pay.)

The payment deadline is April 16th.

A full-weekend, pre-reg badge is the only way you'll be able to get into the Masquerade that MEK will be hosting Thursday evening before the convention! It will also get you into the dealer's room, the concert, all the panels, and various other events!

You are allowed to buy badges for whoever you wish- yourself, friends, or family! So long as I have a form and payment for each person, they are welcome to get a badge with us. You do not need to be a MEK member to be part of the order!

As always, if you have questions about any of this, feel free to post here or send me a message and I will be happy to clear things up.

*This was originally posted as $42 for a badge. However, the price increase was announced for March 10th the day we announced this in club. As there's no way to get payments by Mar 10th at this point, we have instead increased the group price based on the price that the badges will be at when the April 9th deadline arrives. We apologize for having to do this.
