Intervention 5 is happy to announce that we’ve negotiated a super low rate of $89 per night for con attendees this year (for the event happening August 22-24th 2014 at the Hilton Washington DC/Rockville). This is $25 dollars less per night than our previous years, and saves $50 for the entire weekend for most attendees! To get this rate you can use our special hotel registration link
, or you can call the hotel at 1-301-468-1100 and ask for the Intervention rate using code ATE.
Our Pre-registration rate for the event is currently $40, so to complete things you can go to our registration site and purchase your full weekend registration as well.
Intervention 5 registration is now live
. Our 2014 date will be August 22-24th 2014 in Rockville MD at our usual location of the Washington/Rockville Hilton. Our pre-reg cost for the event is $40, and covers all three days of our event.
We have also opened the Vendor Room application process, with a starting date of December 1st for the first round of approvals. To apply for the Vendor room please read all of the info on the page, then scroll to the bottom to fill out and submit your application.
We will be announcing the dates/location for Intervention 5 very soon. We are in final negotiations and hope to release this information early next week.
We at Intervention are always proud to support new and innovative ideas that spread community and geek culture. The original geek gathering, the World Science Fiction Convention (or Worldcon for short), is enjoying its 71st year this year and the location for 2015 gets voted on next week at this year’s Worldcon in San Antonio, TX. Of the three bids for the Worldcon in 2015, Intervention endorses and supports the Orlando in 2015 bid.
Orlando’s vision is one of inclusiveness – and their vision of being the first Worldcon to offer a virtual membership to allow persons to attend and participate in the Worldcon from afar – is one that Intervention supports. Their plan to promote the Worldcon beyond the traditional science fiction community with free admission to the entire exhibit hall, including the dealer’s room, artist alley, art show and Worldcon history exhibits will bring new people into the Worldcon and into the overall science fiction and geek community.
The fact that Intervention’s founders, Oni and Harknell just love Disney and really like the Coronado Springs Resort where Orlando’s Worldcon would take place, is just gravy. Please go check them and their amazing ideas out at www.orlandoin2015.org, or their Facebook page and they’re on Twitter at @OrlandoIn2015.
