Regarding making plans to purchase plane tickets: You may want to wait a while. The prime time to buy domestic USA airfare is said to be approximately 6 to 8 weeks from your travel dates. And the prime time to buy international airfare is said to be anywhere from 3 to 5 months away from your travel dates. Waiting a while might save you some money
Children under 12 years are free with a paid adult. You will need to have the child present at the time of badge pickup to receive their children’s membership badge. There will be no online registration for children under 12 years of age. We had a lot of people registering for child badges that were not children at the last event.
Power Morphicon has a larger convention space this year. We will have both Hall A and Hall B for the event. This means there will be a lot more space and less congested walkways. This will also give us space for a Power Morphicon Art Gallery.
We will have only two panel rooms this year, a main A room and one B room. The third room will be a new viewing room playing Power Ranger episodes through the convention with extended hours after the other events are over.
Gold Breakfast and VIP Meet and greet: VIP Meet and greet will be for Platinum members and one guest only and is included in Platinum Ranger membership. Gold Breakfast will be available for Platinum and Gold Ranger memberships to purchase for themselves and one guest at an additional cost. Space for the Breakfast is limited. We will have Special guests at both events.
Platinum and Gold Special Thursday event information coming soon. This will be an all new event for August 11th 2016 and will include and additional cost for those who wish to participate. Those that sign up for this will get their membership packages early on Thursday as well.
Pin Trading will be a new event at PMC 2016. We are going to have lots of special pins for the convention. Staff members will have extra pins on their Lanyards you can trade with them or any attendee that wants to trade as well.
T-Shirts and Membership packages:
We had issues last year with these and have taken steps to fix it. All Membership packages will now be assembled before the convention. In order to make this happen, and have time to double and triple check your membership packages, we will be closing online membership registration in July 2016 instead of August. Gold and Platinum Memberships will also have a earlier pick up time for package. Non-Attending packages will be made up at the same time and will be sent out after the convention.
Power Morphicon Exclusives will be back. We will have more info later this year.
Press and professional registration will be open later this year.
Vendor and Artist space will be made available April 2016.
