St. Louis Airport Hilton
See you at Ecto Con!
Pre-registration for 2013 is closed, but you can still register at the door for single-day and full-weekend badges. As you can see, we've got some great events planned. Remember, we don't think you're crazy. We're ready to believe you!
We've Got a Schedule!
Your wait for this year's Ecto Con schedule is over. We now have a completed schedule of events and panels, and Friday has three extra hours of programming in the afternoon this year for those who can make it to the con early. As always, the schedule is subject to change, but you can download it here.
Girlbusters Design Portfolio Up!
Again, we're sorry for the LOOOOOOOONG delay. Our design portfolio from the Girlbusters Design Contest is now up for your costuming inspiration. You still have enough time to make one of the designs (and you'll get a prize if you do). Also, if you'd just like to show off your original Ghostbuster design or cool way of wearing your Ghostbuster shirt, you can join us for our Girlbusters Fashion Show Friday evening of the convention. Show the rest of Ecto Con how to pair your Ghostbuster shirt with vintage clothing, tactical gear, and more! Download the Design Portfolio, and learn more here.
Hotel Booking Portal Open!
We're sorry for the delay! You can book your hotel room for Ecto Con at $75 a night by following this link to our online portal.
Professor Shyguy will return!
Professor Shyguy, nerdcore musician extraordinaire, will be returning for 2013 to rock the house! We do have one more guest announcement we hope will pan out, so stay tuned.
Learn more about Professor Shyguy on our guests page.
Another pre-registration deadline passes
Another pre-registration deadline has slipped away, leaving only one more chance to purchase your badge at a discounted rate! Secure yours for only $45 before November 10, or pre-register for $40 in person at our table at Archon.
Due to a management change at our old hotel, our contract was not renewed for 2013, so we have moved to the St. Louis Hilton Airport. The Hilton is a larger hotel, which will give us room to grow in future years, and it's also a great place for pictures!
Hotel booking will be open soon via an online portal. Rooms will be $75 a night! How cool is that?
Dates and Pre-Registration for 2013!
Well, it's been more than a few weeks, and we apologize profusely! What can we say? Saving the world takes time.
We'll be moving to the St. Louis Airport Hilton. Rooms will be open for booking shortly. It's the same weekend - this year November 22-24 - and we'll have a similar format with some programming Friday night, programming all day Saturday, and a Sunday field trip. Please check out our Facebook page for a poll about said field trip in the coming weeks.
Pre-registration for 2013 is now open online only. Our snail-mail registration will be open in April or May (we're moving our P.O. box). We've got an even better deal for you than last year with a $35 weekend badge available for two months only! Remember, the earlier you register, the more you help us get started on 2013 programming and guests. Also, you won't have to worry about it later!
Thanks for a great first year!
We had 67 attendees at the first Ecto Con, which is really pretty good for such a narrow interest. We hope to have more in 2013!
Ecto Con was an amazing experience for the staff. Never before, in our seven years of running conventions, have we seen such enthusiasm and creativity from such a small crowd. Our trip to the City Museum on Sunday was hugely successful, and they'd like us back this year.
So, what do you say? Do you like this plan? Want to do it again?
Wait for an announcement about our 2013 dates in the next few weeks.
