Weekend Rewinds will be reposts of old blog posts that are still relevant, updated for the current conference. This post was originally posted 10/11/2016 in anticipation of SK9. Enjoy!
We know that sometimes people ask, “Why should I register for a free conference? Can’t I just do it when I get there?” And the answer is yes, at-con check in is available, and we welcome anyone who chooses to do that!
But there are benefits for attendees who pre-register:
- Dedicated, easy to find check-in line at registration!
- Faster check-in at registration!
- Be entered into a raffle for a special prize! (this will be separate from the general raffle that will be announced soon)
There are also benefits to Skepticon for you pre-registering. Planning for a conference involves a lot of ordering of stuff. It’s hard to know how much to order if we don’t know how many people are coming. If we have a better idea of how many attendees we’ll have, we can save a lot of money. We always over-order on stuff, because we want to make sure everyone gets stuff, but there’s over-ordering and then there’s OMG we totally over-ordered 0.0
So, if you’re going to come to Skepticon, or even if you think you might, do us a favor and register!
Bunches of thanks!
PS – As always, donate if you can!
