The GOLD WEEKEND PACKAGE is the ultimate upscale way to attend the entire convention and see it all! Here’s what the GOLD WEEKEND Package includes:

1) The absolute best reserved seats in the main theatre where all our major guests appear and events and contests occur! These seats are YOURS, come and go, all three days. See all the stars up close and personal and this is great for photographers too! You get to pick your actual seats during the ordering process! NOTE FOR OUR TWO EVENING SHOWS, SEATS ARE REMOVED SO THEY ARE NOT RESERVED SEATING EVENTS, though there are chairs in the back for those that wish to sit, relax, and just enjoy!

2) Complimentary in-person autographs with great guests including IAN SOMERHALDER, PAUL WESLEY, DANIEL GILLIES, ANDREW LEES, OLIVER ACKLAND AND MORE TO BE ANNOUNCED. Bought separately these in-person autographs would cost a very large percentage of the actual total price of the package so you can see why “Going Gold” is such an outstanding offer. Take advantage of this deal and grab and pick your actual seats today! AWESOME! Names of stars signing in this packages is tentative and subject to change.

3) First to get autographs from the stars mentioned in benefit #2: we go row by row: you are in the front rows: you get the idea!

4) Pre-Registration Fun: we get you set for the weekend before other patrons and give you first crack at the exclusive merchandise!

5) Wristband access: we have special color-coded wristbands and collectible lanyard credentials for GOLD Package Holders: once you get set you don’t need to wait again!

6) Complimentary admission to our Saturday Evening CELEBRITY CONCERT PARTY featuring celebrities in a night of performance: you’ll love it! Info on the website for this convention and admission to YOU is absolutely FREE! Note that this is a NON RESERVED SEATING event, as it is a rocking concert, although there are seats in the back. Tentatively participating are our House Band Samurai Fish with lead singer CHASE COLEMAN, plusMICAH PARKER, AND OTHER CELEBRITIES TO BE ANOUNCED

7) Admission to the vendors area of course!

8) Keep your same great seats and enjoy a GOLD EXCLUSIVE ONE-HALF-HOUR Panel with Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, together onstage! The guests will of course appear later in the day for a full hour for the full audience but we find them to be more casual and open in this special “GOLD ONLY” Session!

9) Complimentary admission to the Karaoke Friday Night party hosted by Micah Parker, Chase Coleman and featuring other celebrities. Come to sing, enjoy and just hang with fellow fans! NOTE THAT SEATS ARE REMOVED FROM THE FRONT FOR THIS EVENT SO IT IS GENERAL ADMISSION, there are seats in the back for those that want to sit and relax.
