Registration Questions

Can I still register for the convention?

Absolutely! Pre-registration is available online and by mail through June 15. After that, at-the-door registration opens at 9:00 AM on Friday, July 15. In addition to purchasing convention memberships, you will also be able to purchase tickets for photo ops.

Can I purchase tickets for the autograph line?

No autograph ticket is required. At Shore Leave, your convention membership allows you access to all of our guests' autograph tables. Please note however that many of our actor guests do charge for their autographs. This transaction is between you and the guest and you pay at the autograph table.

John Noble will sign one item for no additional charge during the official autograph sessions on Saturday and Sunday. Please see our Autograph Policy for more information about the official autograph sessions.

I pre-registered; will you mail my tickets or do I pick them up at the con?

All pre-registration memberships are "Will Call." When you arrive at the Hunt Valley Inn on July 15, you'll need to go to the downstairs portion of the convention area. Pick up your badge, program book, and other membership materials just around the corner from the foot of the escalator.

When will registration open?

Pre-registration opened in October. Advance registration will remain open until June 15, 2014, after which registration will only be available at the door.
