TitanCon 2014 kicks off with a relaxed and cultured evening of readings from our author guests at TitanCon Literature Night. The Wellington Hotel bar will be open all evening and this will be the perfect way to catch up with old friends and make some new ones before the convention proper begins.
UPDATE: Please note that we have cancelled our A.G.M. that was due to be held on Friday afternoon and changed the time at which the TitanCon Registration Desk will open and the time of our Volunteers Meeting. We have changed the times to give more volunteers a chance to make it down to the venue in time for the meeting.
Our registration desk will open at 4.30 pm for TitanCon members to pick up their membership badges. The registration desk will be open through till about 9.00 pm.
We hope the later start time will allow more volunteers to make it down for the Volunteers Meeting. This will be the best opportunity for volunteers to find out everything that is going on at TitanCon 2014, everything that needs to be done and we will be arranging shift times for all volunteers.
TitanCon is a fan convention by the fans for the fans. Everyone that helps run this convention, including the organising committee, are volunteers who give up their own time to do the essential work to run things smoothly on the day. TitanCon cannot exist without the help and support of a dedicated group of volunteers and therefore we urgently need your help at TitanCon 2014.
Last year we simply did not have enough volunteers to cover the entire convention and many of our wonderful volunteers did not get to see some of the panels and events they wished to see, and some barely got a break at all. Therefore we really need to increase the number of volunteers in 2014 so if you have been to two or three TitanCons and haven't helped out before then it's time to give a little back please. If you are willing to give up an hour or two of your day to help us run the convention that would be fantastic.
Please see our volunteers page for more information about volunteering and the volunteers meeting.
TitanCon is pleased to announce that Literature Night will be FREE entry for anyone that wants to attend. This means you don't need to purchase a TitanCon ticket to get in on Friday night, you can just come along and enjoy our author guests reading excerpts from their latest novel or short story.
The venue for Literature Night will be the Middleton Room at the Wellington Park Hotel. The following authors will all be reading at Literature Night:
We expect the readings will be finished by around 9.00 pm and the bar will be open through till 1.00 am for those that wish to chat and socialize.
We invite TitanCon attendees to visit the Grand Opening of our Art Show. Be the first to see the artwork we have on display this year and make an offer on the pieces you really want to buy. The artists will be on hand to answer questions and talk about their artwork.
