Purchasing admissions to the Spring 2016 G.A.M. Convention is easy. Just follow these simple steps!

  1. Click the PayPal purchase link.
  2. Change the quantity setting to indicate how many people for whom you will be paying. (For example, if you are paying for yourself and a guest, change the quantity from 1 to 2 and click the "Update" link.)
  3. During checkout, use the "Notes" textbox to list the names of the people for whom these tickets are being purchased.
  4. (Optional) Print the page as a record of your payment and bring it with you to the convention.

The time period for placing pre-orders closes on March 17th. The pricing breakdown is as follows.

  • January and February pre-orders: $15.00
  • March pre-orders (until March 17th): $17.50
  • At-the-con admissions: $20.00

Buy your admissions through our Web site now, and we'll keep them safe for you until the convention. When it is time for the convention, go to the admission pickup line and show your ID or PayPal receipt. We will stamp your admissions onto your hand and you can start having fun. It's safe, it's simple, and it's worry-free!

The best part about pre-ordering your admissions is that you can avoid waiting in the long registration line on the day of the convention and you can save $5 per admission over the at-the-con price. That's right, you get to save money and go through the speedy admission pickup line and start enjoying the panels and events sooner! Get a leg up on the other con-goers who waited until the day of the convention to get their admissions!

Note: Admission will act as your "ticket" to gain entrance into the convention. Think of the two words as being the same - your admission is your ticket to G.A.M.!

Information

Refunds

As G.A.M. is a convention of considerable size dealing with many people and has a widely publicized, specific event date, we do not offer refunds for any reason except for the cancellation of the entire convention if initiated on our behalf. We reserve the right to cancel conventions based on our sole discretion.

However while refunds will not be issued in any other situation, admissions/tickets and vendor's spots which are purchased in advance of the convention can be transferred to another party or be transferred to be used at a subsequent convention.

Transfer of Admissions and Vendor's Spots

Want to transfer your admission to another person or group? Please contact us online at least two weeks before the convention with your information and the information of the other party who is taking your place. Please be sure to mention the e-mail address which you used to pay for your admissions.

If you don't find out in time to let us know that far in advance before G.A.M., then on the day of the convention just send your substitute with a copy of your photographic identification (such as a photocopy of your driver's license) and a signed and dated letter telling us that you want him/her to have your admission and we will allow that person to use it instead.

If you would like to use your admission at a subsequent G.A.M. Convention, then please contact us before or up to one week after the convention for which you had originally purchased your admissions in advance. Simply tell us all of the pertinent information which you used to purchase your admission and that you would like for us to hold your reserved admission(s) for the next convention.
