BOB 2014

Less than three months to go! ACE headquarters is definitely the place to be. We’re working hard to get ACE 2014 finalized and hope you’re enjoying all the awesome guest announcements we’ve made so far. Last week we found out that you, our amazing fans helped us win Best of Burque in the local convention section, with our incredible friends at Bubonicon! First off we want to say thank you to everyone who voted for us, and for those that didn’t we still love you and look forward to winning your vote next year! You can check out the Best of Burque list here.


Guest Announcements and Ticket Sales!

Written on

GUESTS! GUESTS! LOTS OF GUESTS!
Guest Announcements are coming later today, but we wanted to let you know how they are going to work this year! We’re rebuilding the way we do everything at ACE from the ground up! Here’s how it is going to work:

1. Guest Announcements will always begin on or around March 1st from this point forward.
2. We’ll announce 1 guest per day, until we don’t have anyone left to announce!
3. We’ll occasionally run contests for sharing our guest announcements! You can win cool stuff from us for helping us get the word out about ACE!

So, keep an eye on the site later this afternoon, and we’ll start it off!

GET YO’ TICKETS, YO
We’ll be launching ticket sales later today, too! Again, we’re handling things a little differently – we’re going to have tiered early bird specials that will have discounted tickets for people who buy early. The earliest ticket purchasers will get insane discounts, but there will only be a limited number of each type available. We aren’t going to post the prices just yet, but here are the tickets that will be available for purchase:

ACE 2014 One Day Pass (Early Bird 1) – 25 available
ACE 2014 Three Day Pass (Early Bird 1) – 25 available
ACE 2014 One Day Pass (Early Bird 2) – 100 available
ACE 2014 Three Day Pass (Early Bird 2) – 100 available
ACE 2014 VIP Package (Early Bird) – 15 available

Get in early to get those lower prices! We’ll have tickets for sale this afternoon! Good luck!
