Any other notes you’d like to share or programming you’d like to suggest for Necon 38:


  1. How is walk-in registration handled? I sent in an application yesterday via the online form. Are email acknowledgements sent? I’d hate to assume that I have a place reserved and find out next summer that oops, nope–we never got your application.

    • Hi Elaine! I sent you an email yesterday, but the short answer is YES, I can confirm you’re all set as a walk-in for Necon 38. Please feel free to email Sara or me with any questions. Thanks! – Matt

  2. Hi! Jeff O’brien (past attendee) and myself are only available to come for a day. Do you have day passes available? Thanks!

    • Hi Melanie,

      I responded in full via email (please check your inbox), but the short answer is YES.

      Thanks and hope to see you at Necon!
      – Matt Bechtel

  3. I signed up for the $100 walk-in. Is it possible for me to pay in cash when I arrive, instead of using a credit card now?

  4. I just filled out questionnaire as requested for #39(I already paid at the end of #38.) I didn’t choose a price so I hope that didn’t block it from going through. (I didn’t get a confirmation window after I clicked send)

    If I put down the $100 deposit now, when will the $375 balance be due?

  6. I wanted to confirm that I am registered. I put down a $100 deposit. When will the remaining balance be due?

    • We’re happy to confirm that we received your deposit and that you’re registered for Necon 39. The remaining balance will be due by June 15th, 2019. Thank you and we look forward to welcoming you into the Necon Family!
