Letter from the Chairman on Scammers

Hello everyone,
I want to address a recent issue that has popped up that all attendees need to be aware of. The good news is Megaplex is growing. The unfortunate news is that because of our growth we are becoming a target for hotel room Scammers and Poachers. Several people have contacted us about being called, messaged, or emailed regarding cheaper rooms or being able to get you into our main hotel. While a few of these companies may be legitimate most are not. The hotel has informed us that in the past people who used these third parties arrive to find they do not have a hotel room or that the room is at a much higher rate or has additional fees. To help avoid this we are asking for your help.

  1. If you or someone you know has booked through a third party at our hotels, both reputable or not, please have the room holder contact us at mp-hotel@megaplexcon.org with the hotel confirmation number and the name on the booking so we can make sure your room is secure and so that we can make sure the hotel knows you are with our group. Not only do we use the numbers for planning but we also have special agreements with the hotel that improve our attendees experience.
  2. If you booked through the hotel but outside of the room block we ask that you email us the confirmation number and name on the room to mp-hotel@megaplexcon.org.
  3. If you are contacted by someone trying to sell you a room for our convention please try to get as much detail as possible and let us know either by messaging us on social media or emailing us at mp-hotel@megaplexcon.org. Screenshots are appreciated.
  4. Please DO NOT provide contact information of your friends to third party companies in respects to Megaplex especially without your friend’s permission.

We are working hard to bring you yet another great year and can’t wait to see you all at Megaplex 2017.

Sincerely,
Hino
Chairman

General Update

Greetings all!

We hope that this new year is finding everyone well.  Megaplex has been receiving lots of questions related to Dealers Den, convention space, and rooms. We want to keep all of our attendees and guests up to date on our new hotel, and the importance of making your hotel reservation early.

The new building is still slated to be completed before Megaplex 2017 begins.  Things are going smoothly with the construction, but some details have made parts of our planning process occur later than normal.  This has included the design and layout of the Dealers Den.  But not to worry!  The Dealers Den registration will be opening 12:00 AM ET February 1st, 2017. This year we have tables and Larger “Booth” areas.

There is one other major item to let everyone know about.   Demand for hotel rooms has been much higher than anticipated.   We have already exceeded last year's total room reservations!  While this would normally not be a problem for a resort of this size, there are others planning vacations and such at the same time as Megaplex.  The result is that the hotel is filling fast!  So please do not delay.  We are expanding the room block as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee that the hotel will have available rooms as the year progresses.  As hard as this is to believe...the hotel has indicated that they will reach a SELLOUT status before spring!  So please, if you are planning to attend Megaplex at our new resort venue, please reserve your room as soon as you can.

Thanks all.  We have much more information to come about Megaplex - Mega Quest, the Wrath of Con.  Stay tuned!
