November 22-24, 2013
St. Louis Airport Hilton
Have you ever wished there were cooler uniforms for Ghostbusters? Or humanized Mr. Stay Pufts? Or more great ghosts? Now is your chance to design your own Ghostbusters universe costume! Until July 16, we will be taking entries for our Girlbusters Design Contest. You don't have to be a woman to enter. Just draw your best Ghostbusters-related design, and submit it for the chance to win... and the chance to have someone create your design in real life. That's right. When the contest is over, we will post all of the entries on our website so that people attending Ecto Con can try their hands (and sewing machines and hot glue) at recreating them.
More info on the Schedule Page.
New Pre-registration price
For those of you who missed the first pre-registration tier, never fear! We've got more chances for you to get badges cheaper than at the door. Until August 15, weekend badges will be available for only $40, but if you come by the Kawa Kon table at Cosplacon or the next ToyMan Toy Show, you can get one for $35.
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.
