BronyCAN: First Canadian Brony Convention

Recommended Posts

So that's just great. [/sarcasm] A Canadian brony con shows up... and it's on the opposite side of the country. I live in Nova Scotia, so I guess I'll never get to go to a con.

Look on the bright side...There should be a con coming to NovaScotia sometime in the future. I read a post from BronyCAN saying that they will sweep the nation with cons.

Well, it is a traveling convention. Their soul intention is to travel across the country every year to each province, so there may be a chance. :)

I can appreciate the tenacity everyone has about conventions however I [personally] don't see the appeal. Too much noise for me (I'm too shy :P) plus at least on a forum everything is organized and nice.

Hey guys! A lot has happened with BronyCAN as of late so I suppose I'll detail the rundown of updates here.

First off, I am now officially part of the BronyCAN staff team as a Public Relations assistant, so if anyone has questions or concerns, DJ Midli and I would be more than happy to resolve them as best as we can. Our website is frequently updated, so any news we have to announce promptly goes there as well as on our Facebook and Twitter channels.

And now for updates:

  • Registration is open and has been open for over a month now, as NostalgicPony posted above. A standard pass for both days of the convention is $60, while a Saturday pass is $50 and a Sunday pass $40. Higher-tier sponsor passes are also available. http://bronycan.com/registration.html
  • Convention dates: Saturday, August 24th and Sunday, August 25th, 2013
  • BronyCAN's venue is at the Executive Airport Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre in Richmond, BC; it's ten minutes from the YVR Vancouver International Airport and four blocks from the SkyTrain Canada Line station. We are offering a special discount rate for a limited time for those who wish to book their hotel room early. More details here: http://bronycan.com/hotel.html
  • We have several guests of honor and brony musicians announced so far, with more to come! Guest information here: http://bronycan.com/guests.html
    • Tabitha St. Germain - Voice Actress (Rarity, Princess Luna, Granny Smith)
    • Lee Tockar - Voice Actor (Snips, Steven Magnet)
    • Silva Hound - Musician
    • DJ Midli - Musician
    • FenPony - Musician
    • Donn DeVore - Musician
    • BeamPegasu5 - Laser Artist
    • Brony Beamshows - Laser Artist
  • Vendor registration is open and we are now accepting vendor applications! A full table is $30 while a half table is $15. Payment is not required at this time; we will review all applications received and we will contact you if your application is approved. http://bronycan.com/vendors.html

 

I'm personally very excited to be able to attend BronyCAN as it will be my first MLP:FiM convention; my flight to Vancouver is booked and I will be in the city from Wednesday, August 21st to Friday, August 30th. I am also very confident that BronyCAN is in good hands as some local brony friends of mine are also on staff, including the Con Chair - they are awesome people to work with and hang around with. smile.png

We will be distributing a travel survey soon to help gauge transportation plans for attendees, whether it be renting a Canada-wide charter bus or finding other means to help bring you to the convention.

Once again, you can find BronyCAN here:

Hmm...only a 3.5 hour drive from Kamloops. I could make it if I wanted to. Those dates are a bit iffy for me at the moment. I'll be done with university by then but I may or may not have a new job, might even be in Vancouver from the looks of things. Ugh, I hate job hunting. I'll just have to wait and see what happens i guess. If it works out I'd love to go. :)

This is actually really close to where I live.  Well, looks like I've got something to do in August.

Any chance of more guests being confirmed in the future?  Most of the cast lives less than a city away.

Do really want to go, and it is about a 8-9hr drive away, but I don't know if it is something my parents would want me to go to. :/

I don't really want to ask either because they aren't too suportive of me liking FiM. *sigh* (On the other hand, I wear my FiM shirt all the time, lol)

Hmm, discount aside. Why both getting the ticket if you aren't mostly certain (unless you are) that you will be going? The tickets aren't refundable afaik. I've been itching to buy one myself, but I want to be sure I'm going first.

 

 

@Senn55

Heh, I already did that survey this morning (or sometime earlier today) before you posted it. tongue.png

Thanks for posting though!

I'm pretty confident that I am going. Me and a few friends have made plans to all register and get hotels/transport. If it comes a time that something like an emergency occurs and I cannot go to BronyCAN, then I don't mind giving up the 60 dollars really. This is the only year for a long while that BronyCAN is in British Columbia since its a traveling con so I just want to make sure I am in the roster of people going, just in case if tickets sold out.

 

Plus it helps to motivate my friends into going. But I honestly don't mind investing 60 dollars in something that if it came down to an emergency situation where I could not go, I would not say " well, what a waste of money " but I would be disappointed.

I live in the same city, and I wouldn't mind car pooling. img-1495753-1-biggrin.png

In fact I would love to, as I don't have a car of my own (...yet).

 

Fur suits huh? Well, I don't have one myself, but I'm sure it will be a fun sight.

 

AL is coming? Awesome! Voice actress of my two favourite ponies.

 

 

Do you know how long until pre-registration ends Senn55? Or does that have a limit like the early bird?
