FAQ: 
 

Why are the tickets non-refundable? 

This is a small convention with a limited number of tickets per event. By making the tickets non-refundable, people who are serious about attending will have a better chance of getting a ticket to their favorite event instead of those events being sold out by people who were merely reserving tickets “just in case.” 

Why are the Big Easy and Nola High Roller tickets transferable? 

Sometimes even the best laid plans get disrupted, so we have made the two most expensive tickets transferable with limitations. (All transfers need to be handled directly by Nola StoryCon, or they will not be honored.) Contact Nola StoryCon for more details.

How do I contact Nola StoryCon? 

Email us at: nolastorycon AT gmail.com (Replace the AT with a @ in your email.) Important: Emails/messages/tweets sent to any other place will NOT be answered. 

Are there ID requirements or any age restrictions? 

ID’s are required to pick up badges at the hotel, and badges are required for entry into ALL ticketed events. Events are open to all ages, but proof of legal drinking age will be required for those buying liquor at the cash bar. 

What can/can’t I bring to the event? 

Make sure to wear your event badge. For the mass signing, each attendee will be allowed to bring up to 10 “books from home.” Please note that this is up to 10 books PER ATTENDEE, not per author. All “from home” books will need to be stickered by event staff, or they will not be allowed in the signing. 

Can I update my registration information?  

Yes. Contact the organizers at: nolastorycon AT gmail.com 

Can I resell one of the transferable tickets to someone else at a profit? 

Nola StoryCon has a a strict “no scalping” policy and transferable tickets CANNOT BE RESOLD at a higher price. That is why all transfers must be handled through Nola StoryCon or they will not be honored. Any violations of this policy will result in immediate cancellation of the tickets without a refund. If you see someone attempting to resell a ticket at a higher price, DO NOT BUY IT. Instead, contact Nola StoryCon. 

Where can I find your Press Kit? 

Please contact Brianne at Orange Publicity or email Brianne at: brianne AT orangeprm.com
