CIII Industry/Professional passes?
« on: March 23, 2005, 04:24 PM »
Does anyone know if Celebration will be offering free passes to people in the industry or professionals in the field?  The big Wizard World convention did - and I'd hate to spend $110.00 when I could possibly get in for free.

The official website has a 'contact us' box, but it (and all the other links on the left side of the page) seem to be dead - at least they're not working for me that is...

Any insight would be appreciated.

I think the only options for "free" passes were via

Media/Press (Deadline was March 4):

or Exhibitor (Deadline was today March 23rd).

I don't think they offered any deal for Industry/Professionals...  :-\

As a staff member here, you can usually get free passes to Comic Con, Wizard World, Toyfair, etc.  But most/all websites are only being given one freebie for C3, which the boss is using.

You might have been able to possibly nab one for your real world gig, but as Jeff's mentioned, the deadline already passed a little while ago.  Should've stopped by the admin thread where we've been discussing this for the past month...   :P

Yeah - I wasn't suggesting that I should get a free pass via JD, just for a lot of the conventions I've gone to, where I work has been enough to consider me an industry professional.

Anyone know if CIII has any contact email addresses or phone numbers?  Like I said earlier, the links didn't seem to work for their website.

Check/search the C3 thread in the admin section here Rob.  I'm sure Mary Franklin's e-mail addy is floating around in there somewhere, as well as a few other pertinent ones.  Maybe Dale can dig them up for you in 3 seconds flat...   ;)
