Q:Do we get a special guest reveal in honor of tickets going on sale?
Nope! You’ll have to wait until tomorrow.
Q:When do you predict the 3 day passes will sell out?
Last year they sold out online in the second week of January, but we’ve already had record breaking (for us) first day sales so we honestly can’t predict it. You’ve probably got a couple months, if the current pattern holds true.
Q:Some of us are hearing that the Sheraton is already sold out. Can anyone on your end confirm if that's the case?
It is not sold out, but there are some issues with the website discount code right now. We hope to have it fixed when their team is back in the office tomorrow.
Q:Why are rooms at the Sheraton not showing up? I followed the link from your hotel page and it is showing no rooms available. I am just looking for a room for 2 adults, checking in Thursday and checking out on Sunday.
We recommend contacting our reservation company Group Travel Associates directly for hotel concerns: http://gtameetings.com/eccc_show.shtml
Q:Sorry if pass Q's are getting repetitve, but is the celeb fast pass basically a deluxe pass + celeb photo ops and autograph access, or is it celeb only and doesn't include the exclusive show floor access? The huge price difference made me wonder.
Nope, the passes are totally different. The descriptions on our Passes site is all each pass entails.
Q:Cosplaying even if you aren't competing is allowed right?
Oh yes, definitely! Cosplay is encouraged, it’s a vibrant part of our show!
Q:I don't know if this will be of any comfort to the people who were asking, but last year I attended ECCC with my friend who is transgender and he had a great experience. I was with him for most of the three days and he didn't run into any discrimination and found ECCC to be a comfortable environment. Well, as comfortable as you can be in huge crowds and long lines ;)
Thank you for letting us know!
Q:What does ECCC do to make the convention a safe space for trans and gender non conforming people?
In all honesty, this is something we are actively discussing among the ECCC team. We feel our existing policies are a good start, and we will be announcing an expansion of those policies before the show.
We really appreciate your feedback, so thank you for reaching out.
Q:Are trans people still welcome at ECCC?
Of course they are. Everyone is welcome at ECCC, we strive to make it as inclusive and welcoming a space as we can.
