A lot has changed since our last in-person SHareCon in 2019. After two in-person cons in a row in 2018 and 2019, we took a year off and so did the rest of the world thanks to COVID. In 2021, we opted, for safety, to have a virtual con instead. Over a hundred fans in 10 time zones joined us and, thanks to our CONspirators, we had a great time. So we held another virtual con in 2022.
This year, we’re going to combine events, so YES, Virginia (and New York and Hawaii and England and Australia) SHareCon 2023 is happening. We’ll be meeting in person on October 13-16 in Linthicum, Maryland, and at the same time, virtually everywhere else!
We’ll be planning con activities soon, but for those of you who can join us in person, you can register for the con AND reserve your hotel room now.
Membership comes in assorted flavors:
For the in-person con: full attending (all four days) or single day attending (any one day) memberships.
Supporting memberships: For those who want to support the in-person con but can’t attend, we’ve offered supporting memberships. Supporting memberships prices don’t change and don’t have a deadline. Shortly after the con, supporting members are mailed the con zine, schedules, badges, and whatever con goodies we can fit in the mailer. Supporting membership helps pay the con’s bills. Supporting members are also welcome to register for the Virtual con.
Virtual membership: This is your ticket to all the virtual con events. It is free. Just as we did with the two virtual cons, we’ll need your fan name, email address to send you links to the schedule and events, and time zone. Virtual members do not receive the con zine or con materials.
If you are interested in full attending membership, the earlier you register, the cheaper it is. Also, please note in-person membership is limited due to the size of the meeting space, so that gives you two good reasons to register early. Click the Register tab to sign up for the con.
We have an online link to facilitate your hotel registration: Share CON Hotel or click on the Hotel tab.
The con rate is good from Thursday October 12 through Monday October 16 for anyone in sightseeing in Washington or Baltimore before or after the con.
Please do not register for the hotel through a third party, bonus miles, or internet search. SHareCon will not get credit for those rooms, and if we don’t meet our quota, we can suffer a penalty.
Looking forward to seeing you in person and virtually at SHareCon 2023.
