We have now officially ended pre-registration!
As of midnight tonight, our pre-registration count is at 2406. To compare, last year's figures were hovering around the 1800 mark, and our total attendance reached a few over 4,000 attendees. Our projected numbers are potentially breaching 5,000 attendees.
Why is this important? We have made an assessment with the Ramada Plaza that our maximum attendance count is 6,000.
First, let's be clear. We do not anticipate to reach 6,000 at this time. However, if we achieve unprecedented growth in this year and reach that number, we will have to insist on a cap.
I will reiterate :
We do not anticipating reaching our cap this year,
however pre-registration will be open until Oct. 10th, but it will be at-door prices. ($50 for a 3-day badge)
This will allow you to make the assessment of whether you want to absolutely guarantee your badge for 2014, or whether you want to take your chances.
Setting a registration cap is the absolute last thing we want to do for NebrasKon. We want to remain an inclusive event, and this will impact our plans for the future. We wanted to be transparent with everyone however, and hopefully we will not have to turn anyone away!
Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please contact me or Gill Wright at register@NebKon.com
