• Everfree Northwest Gets Bigger Venue: Extra Tickets Available Soon

    Happy news, everypony! Remember when Everfree Northwest announced they were full, and closed to new reservations? They heard you, and pulled their little convention strings to get a venue that could support even more of you! So if you were among the unlucky ones who wanted to go and see all of the absurdly awesome people and events they've got lined up there but were too late on the initial ticket sales, then this is the lucky break you've been waiting for.

    Registration is going to re-open on June 9 at 7 pm Pacific Time. Don't put it off anymore; that's what got you in this mess to begin with! Check out the official press release below, and then get to planning that trip. It's sure to be an experience you'll never forget.

    Fillies and Gentlecolts, you've given us no choice! Everfree Northwest is excited to announce that we’re expanding our venue to include the beautiful SeaTac Airport Marriott Hotel, which sits adjacent to our existing venue, the Holiday Inn. Adding this second venue gives us almost double the space and even more guest rooms!

    Venue Expansion

    The SeaTac Airport Marriott joins our team and adds even more space for us. Newly remodeled, the Marriott sits conveniently located across the street from the Holiday Inn and is happy to host us as one of their first events since renovating their extensive property. The Holiday Inn still remains our principal site and is working with us to help integrate our second venue into the event. With half a dozen ballrooms and over 13,000 square feet, this space gives us a unique opportunity to truly take Everfree Northwest to the next level.

    Additional Memberships and Rooms

    In light of our expansion--as well as popular demand--we are pleased to announce that we will begin taking registration for badges once again. However, we must caution that at this point, even with the new venue, that there are less than 450 spaces still available. General attendance badges and a limited number of Dealer’s badges will be available for the same price as before.

    Registration re-opens on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at 7:00PM Pacific. Understand this is the ONLY time that we will have the opportunity to expand, and that after this additional run of badges is gone, there will be no more available.

    Furthermore, our badges are NON-TRANSFERABLE. They cannot be scalped, traded, or re-sold since they require picture ID on site when acquired. Be wary of strangers advertising ticket sales or offering hefty prices to buy your own.

    This venue expansion also allows us overflow guest room space. More information on hotels will be available on the official convention website later this week.

    Sponsor Badges

    In addition to the normal badges, a special, limited run of Sponsor Badges will be available which offers the holder some serious perks. Please stay tuned for further details later this week!

    Schedule Delay

    As we are working hard to integrate our new venue into the convention, please continue to be patient with regard to our programming and events schedule. We will have it available soon!
