TitanCon 2015 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.
Our registration desk will open at 3.00 pm for TitanCon members to pick up their membership badges. The registration desk will be open through till about 9.00 pm.
The Registration desk and rooms we will be using for Literature Night and the Art Show are marked on the map to the right. Please take the stairs or lift up to the First Floor of the hotel and walk down the corridor to the far end of the convention space where you will find us.
This will be the best opportunity for volunteers to find out everything that is going on at TitanCon 2015, 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 2015.
Last year I feel like we really got things right with the way we organised our volunteers. For the first time we had job descriptions for every volunteer position, we organised our volunteers into separate teams with a Team Leader responsible for managing each team rather than having a single volunteer co-ordinator trying to organise all of the volunteers across the entire convention, and most importantly we had a brilliant response from you guys with more volunteers than ever before. We want to build on the success of last year and continue to run TitanCon in the same smooth, relaxed and organised way in 2015.
But we can only do this with the help of wonderful people that are willing to give up an hour or two of their day to help run TitanCon. In years past we have been in the situation where we simply did not have enough volunteers to cover the entire convention and as a result some of our volunteers did not get to see the panels and events they wished to see, and some barely got a break at all. That's something we really don't want to have happen again. Therefore we are asking people that are interested and those that have been to two or three TitanCons that haven't helped out before 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. We expect the readings will be finished by around 9.30 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.
