The fate of ZomBcon International lies before all of you today. As the owner and president, I am writing you all today to ask you for your support to restore and offer a true horror experience right here in the Northwest back to Seattle for good that once made Seattle “The Zombie Capital of the World” once again next September 27th.
After two amazing years of building the world’s first true Zombie culture convention experience right here in Seattle, it now comes down to EVERY TICKET HOLDER to allow this 100% independent convention get financed by fans for fans. In years past, we have been honored to host top media guests like Bruce Campbell, George A. Romero, Max Brooks, Tom Savini, Norman Reedus, Ted Raimi, Bill Moseley, Sid Haig and so many others notable guests in Seattle.
Our plans are to turn our attention to the ZomBcon and move our annual Red, White and Dead Zombie Walk around the same date to bring these two amazing events closer to together and unite for for one massive Zombie outbreak. Our goal is to bring the convention back to Seattle on September 27th through September 29th. We haven’t decided on a specific location for the convention, but are actively looking at sutiable venues to host our event event and will update you every step of the way.
BUY YOUR TICKETS ON TUESDAY, OCT. 16TH ONLINE
For our loyal supporters, we want to encourage your time and investment by offering you a great opportunity. So we put a limited amount of advance ticket sales on sale starting Tuesday, October 16th online.
Our first goal is to raise $25,000 before December 1st. In an attempt to reach this mark fast and set forth the next stage is to offer a (1,000) Three-Day Pass for just $25 each Admission for Single admission and $49 for two people. If we can manage to sell a combined amount of 2,500 tickets, we can actually set forth and produce the festival.
We have almost 8,000 fans on Facebook and if every Facebook fan donated $10 each or bought a ticket for $25, we could be well on our way to announce our plans for 2013 and 2014.
We will be offering VIP Packages upon reaching our first goal of $25,000 and upon that provide the opportunity to make plans. So one step at a time. As I say this and set forth the plans.
This is not a guarantee that the convention will happen, but an opportunity to fight to save it and make this event happen.
What happens if we don’t reach our goal of $25,000 by the December 1st date? If we do not reach our goal of $25,000, then subsequently each ticket holder will receive a 100% refund and we will not go forward, unless we receive a substantial sponsorship or investment.
Presently, we are on our own and can’t do this alone without your help. If we reach our goal of $25,000, then we announce a venue for the 2013 convention and begin working on media guests for the convention.
