FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
ABOUT THE 2017 BEAUTY AND THE BEACH CONVENTION
FOR FANS NOT COMING TO THE CONVENTION
Even if you are not able to attend the upcoming 2017 Beauty and the Beast convention to be held July 14 – 16, 2017, in San Diego, CA, there is some information you may be interested in knowing. This FAQ was developed to address common questions we have been asked. This FAQ will be revised and updated as more information becomes available.
1. HOW CAN I FIND OUT MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THE CONVENTION?
We will be posting general convention information (dates, location, registration fee, etc.) on the CHSBB Facebook page, on Batbland.com, and on BBTV.
2. WILL YOU OFFER CON TEE SHIRTS FOR SALE? A CONZINE?
Yes! An official announcement is not likely, though, before mid-April.
3. WILL THERE BE AN ART SHOW AND A DEALERS ROOM?
There will not be a formal Art Show, however, we encourage artists to send art to sell. Please contact the con team at CHSBB@aol.com prior to the con so we can ensure we have a space set up to display your art. We will also have (limited) space for a Dealers Room. Again, please contact the con team at CHSBB@ao.com prior to the con if you wish to send items to sell.
4. WILL THERE BE A CHARITY AUCTION?
Yes! If you have items to donate, we are happy to accept them. Please contact the con team at CHSBB@aol.com prior to the convention if you wish to donate items for the charity auction.
5. HOW CAN I CONTRIBUTE IF I AM NOT ATTENDING THE CONVENTION?
You will be with us in spirit! Here are ways to assist us in “Keeping the Dream Alive”!
~ If you haven’t quite completed a story, drawing, essay, or other contribution for the conzine, there’s still a little time! Contact the zine editors for more information. Remember, the conzine will be sold to raise funds for the convention charity! Here’s the link for the guidelines: http://www.batbland.com/cons/17/conzine.html
~ Send things to put in the convention tote bags that will be given to attendees
~ If you have B&B item(s) you wish to donate for the charity auction, please contact the con team at CHSBB@aol.com before the convention to let us know
~ If you have created art or have B&B items that you wish to sell, please contact the con team at CHSBB@aol.com before the convention to let us know
~ In celebration of 30 years of fandom, we thought it might be a nice idea to showcase fan photos from past cons at our upcoming convention in San Diego. We would appreciate help from you, the fans, in making this project a reality. We would love it if you could provide us with photos that you may have taken at past conventions with a notation showing at which convention the picture was taken. Just scan those old photos and send them to Laura G. at firstname.lastname@example.org .jpg or .jpeg format. Digital photos can simply be attached to an email. Please reference "con photos" in the reference line, if you'd be so kind. We recognize that many fans have already contributed pictures to Batbland so we are looking for other photos that may not have yet been posted. We would appreciate receiving your submissions by June 15, 2017.
6. WILL THE CONVENTION BE LIVE-STREAMED AS IN PAST YEARS?
~ Yes, as much as possible! Here is the ustream link: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/batb-con. Please note that the ustream link will NOT be live until convention time!
