The VCON 39 room booking period 
with the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford hotel 
HAS BEEN EXTENDED
to September 15, 2014 @ 5pm Pacific

Because our online sales continue until September 15th we've managed to negotiate with the venue for an extension to our room booking period!

What does this mean? It means that our special convention rates will now be available up to 5 pm on September 15! With almost two additional weeks available, this means anyone who's just decided to purchase a membership can still book a room and benefit from being an attendee at our convention!

Voting for this year’s Aurora awards ends at midnight, at the end of day, Eastern Daylight Time on September 6th, 2014. That’s the first Saturday of the month.

If you live in Vancouver it will be 9pm, Saturday evening. (This allows the awards team who live out west time to make sure everyone gets a chance to vote and still get to bed before the sun comes up.)

The VCON 39 room booking period

ENDS on September 2, 2014 @ 5pm Pacific

What does this mean? It means that our special convention rates will only be available up to that date. After 5 pm on September 2nd, it will still be possible to book a room of course, but only at regular (i.e., more expensive) hotel rates. So if you want to book a room but haven't gotten around to it yet, now is the time to do so!
