Our attendee rate at the [URL="http://conbravo.com/sheraton-hotel-rate-available/"]Sheraton Hamilton Hotel[/URL] is now open! The Sheraton is our primary official hotel and connected to the Hamilton Convention Centre by Carmen's via skybridge, plus it's home to tons of our programming in its second floor and basement ballrooms.

Awesome. It may be early, but I had such an amazing time at ConBravo last year. I'm very hyped about it for 2015. It was my favorite con of the year in 2014, after all. The environment was awesome and so was the venue.

I do have one concern. Last year the line to even for pre-reg was honestly outlandish. It was as bad as an overrun states con. We waited over three hours in line, something that wouldn't surprise me if it wasn't pre-reg, I guess. Is there anything being setup to avoid this happening this year? Just so I know whether or not to show up way earlier than planned.

Will probably never get this answered since the forums are dying here, but, does ConBravo offer a discount rate for the Crowne Plaza nearby? Sheraton's booked up (and I hate Sheraton hotels anyway) and those Homewood suites or w/e are WAY too expensive. The Crowne's still a bit much for me without a discount, especially since I applied as an artist and I'm trying to make a profit when I go (And I have to pay for the whole hotel...)

Hey Shinobi, yes, we have a Crowne discount now up on the website.
