Madison you are the first to register not only for ROTL but as a VIP registrant. We thank you for your support through all of these years. We hope for your continued support. That being said, we here at ROTLcon are ecstatic to bestow upon you both knighthood in the Kingdom of the Leaves and in addition to that we will grant you a VIP badge for ROTL 2016 and a free Convention Lanyard.
We ask for everyone’s help in congratulating Madison in this celebratory moment.
Hey everyone. We’ve got a bit of a rough spot that we’re in.
We are struggling. We are struggling to pay for the event space and for some of our big names to attend. We only just found out tonight just how bad it is, and why.
We are struggling because of a lack of room sales. You guys, the people attending our event, staying at the preferred hotel (ie the one hosting the event) allows us to rent the event space for free if we can sell enough rooms. For whatever reason, room sales this year have been really bad, and we don’t know why. Badge sales have greatly exceeded expectations, yet room sales might as well be nonexistent. Whether you have booked your stay with another hotel, or whether you haven’t booked yet for whatever reason, know this: the lack of room sales hurts us and makes it tough for us to provide you with a top quality event.
As of right now nearly all the money we’ve made in vendor table sales and in badge sales is going to paying for the event space because not enough rooms for the event have been sold at the preferred venue (Holiday Inn). This means that, unfortunately, we are going to have to decline the attendance several of our guests because we cannot afford them, and in fact Aviators has already cancelled his appearance. We do not blame him for doing so.
To those who haven’t booked your rooms yet, please PLEASE book your stay at the Holiday Inn! To those who booked your room elsewhere, know that this impacts everybody as we can not provide the best experience possible without room sales at our venue. And finally, to those few who’ve booked your rooms at the Holiday Inn already, thank you. Sincerely, thank you.
Please bear with us as we still try to make this year as best as we can.
We at Running of the Leaves would like to thank the OVER 800 people who have already registered for the con this year, and for all you music buffs we’ve got some exciting news for you today!
Some of our musicians have agreed to do a PRIVATE screening in addition to their other shows for a limited number of people who book their rooms with the Holiday Inn (RotL’s location this year)! The first 100 people who line up with a hotel room key and a badge will be allowed access to this event. Food and beverage will be provided!
So far Eurobeat Brony, Cyril the Wolf, and Jeff Burgess will be performing during this exclusive event! In fact Jeff will be revealing some unreleased acoustic material for any who attend, so get hype and make sure you have a room with the Holiday Inn! We’ll see you there in a month!
