We have major news! After a great deal of negotiations, we are very excited to announce a ticket price reduction for the 30th Australian Skeptics National Convention.
The new standard ticket price for the whole convention is only $260 (previously $320), effective immediately.
Since we began planning this convention, trying to reduce the ticket price has been high on our priority list. Conference attendance costs can be prohibitive, but we wanted to make sure that as many people as possible – both from Australia and overseas – would be able to attend.
Now, after finalising the last price adjustments and overall budget, we’re extremely pleased that we can offer the same event with the same wonderful speakers – for less!
What has changed?
The only change directly impacting the attendees is that we won’t be offering a catered lunch this year. This is because the convention venue is located in the middle of one of Sydney’s busiest shopping and business centres, which is bustling with restaurants, cafes and takeaways – you won’t have to walk more than a couple of minutes to find something of your fancy. However, you will not go thirsty: we will be serving tea and coffee throughout both days of the convention.
Are there concession tickets?
Yes! We are also pleased to finally announce a limited number of concession tickets for pensioners and full-time students. The concession ticket price is $220. Those who feel they qualify for the concession should email or fax a copy of their pensioner or student card to firstname.lastname@example.org or 02 8088 4735 with their name and contact details.
I already bought a ticket, do I get a refund?
Absolutely! We are aware that so many of you have already booked at the old price, and everyone will be reimbursed the price difference. Reimbursements will happen automatically within a couple of weeks for all ticket holders. If you already have a ticket and want to apply for a concession as well, please do so as soon as possible so we can reimburse the correct amount.
What about the dinner?
The price reduction applies to the convention only; the price for the convention dinner with the special SGU event on the evening of Saturday, November 29, will remain the same.
