    There should be a lot more rooms available in the Hilton for our attendees for 2015 than in previous years and right from the start we are getting more rooms set aside for our initial block. As always this can be extended if needed too.

    Also, the Festival Of Quilts isn't taking place at the NEC the same weekend so that will place less of a strain on the hotel bedroom wise although right now we don't know we don't know if anything else is scheduled to take place locally.

    Hilton wise, all we can do is just advise everyone to book their rooms as quickly as possible. One thing we do want to stress is that you don't have to pay for your rooms when you book so please don't let this hold up your booking!

    I'd like to book my tickets and rooms early next year, I'm just wondering if they would be sold out by then. Is there a time they usually sell out by or anything?

    We'll have tickets available for the con but with the Hilton all we can really advise is booking sooner rather than later. For the last few years the hotel has sold out before the con and if anything else is on at the NEC then we'll be competing for rooms. The only positive thing is that we will have the majority use of the Hilton so it's highly unlikely that any other event will take place in the hotel requiring any large number of bedrooms.

    Sad news!

    Especially glad I'll be making it there this year, but what a bummer.

    It's only 35 days till the con and this thread is several pages back? Absurdity.
    In any case, is anyone else horribly curious as to what exactly is going to happen at the James Horen cabaret show?

    It's amazing that the fans came together to make this happen, don't let funpub know about crowd funding special guests. Lol

    My only interactions with him have been online, but I so wish I could see him in person. Especially the last event. Really wish I could go. :(
