The early bird deadline approaches

There’s just under a week left to register for Room 801 at our special early bird pricing! There won’t be any more extensions to the cutoff date, so if you want to save a bit on your ticket purchase then you’ll need to register by the end of November. Head over to the Tickets page for more details and to register.

We’ve been steadily announcing our special guests over the last few months, and we think their expertise will offer something for everyone! Stay tuned next month for the final guest announcements and our draft screening and activity schedules.

Room 801 will be held during the Sydney Mardi Gras 2014, so if you’re travelling from a regional area or interstate it’s a good idea to plan ahead. You can stay at the venue, and there are also several budget hotels and backpacker hostels in the vicinity. We’re working on some shopping, eating and attraction guides, just in case you want to extend your stay in Sydney!

Supanova Brisbane and the return of the poll

This weekend one of the Room 801 organisers is taking a little road trip up to Brisbane! Pirotess will be sharing a table with Alisha Jade and Escape Velocity (by Ms.Rosek and Mamath) in the artist alley at table 212. It’s right near the cosplay registration/information desk.

You can buy tickets for Room 801 at our table, plus Pirotess will be selling the latest issue of Noble Rot and the usual collection of yaoi comics and artbooks. A little birdie tells us that our guest author Mary Borsellino will be wandering around the convention, too.

We’re still taking suggestions for activities and panels, and we’re accepting applications for the artist alley via our trader form – so if you’re interested in any of that, get in touch!

Things were a bit crazy last month so we didn’t have a poll, but here’s a new one for November.
