the creation entertainment difference

Unlike so many other genre conventions, Creation Entertainment has a strict company policy not to "oversell" our conventions. In other words, every patron, no matter what bracket of ticket they purchase, will have a seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. Nothing upsets us more than hearing about other conventions that sell tickets to patrons and then those very same patrons have to wait on additional lines inside the facility to get into (or sometimes not!) the main theatre. An important Creation Entertainment difference we want you to know about!

The Creation difference extends to our 40 years experience in running fan conventions. In the last few years we've seen promoter after promoter fail taking hard earned ticket money down with them. Inexperienced promoters, often first-timers, use celebrity images and names to get ticket money which they use to hopefully pay their expenses. When that fails they've already gone through "your" ticket money and they collapse leaving no recourse for ticket holders. They say "buyer beware" but this has happened in other conventions and we really feel for those great fans who have lost their ticket money and upset travel plans.

**All Convention tickets have a $7.75 shipping/handling fee charged per ticket ordered. This applies to all online, phone, fax and mail orders.

***Attention Attendees: Do not purchase Creation Tickets from scalpers or anyone trying to offer tickets as you arrive at our convention locations. Each ticket is checked for authenticity at the door with a scanner and we cannot let you in if your ticket is counterfeit (which has happened recently). Each ticket once scanned makes any and all copies of that same one of a kind scan void and we can only let the first person in with it. Please only buy your tickets only from Creation in advance or at the door, we seen too many nice folks lose their hard earned money this way and be turned away. Thanks, we appreciate your support!

WANT TO VOLUNTEER AT THIS CONVENTION? GREAT, IT IS MUCH APPRECIATED!
Please email our volunteer coordinator:
and let us know which convention you would like to volunteer.
PLEASE NOTE: You must be 21 years old or over to volunteer.

We really appreciate your help in publicizing this event on-line. Grab our banners to put on your site!

ALL GUESTS are contracted to appear and all convention contracts specify that appearances are tentative and subject to change as film and television work demands take precedence as can a personal conflict. Our events will take place whether a specific guest cancels or not (we always try to book replacements) and therefore we cannot issue admission ticket or ticket package refunds if a particular guest does not fulfill their appearance contract. Of course we will always refund separately purchased photo ops and autograph tickets for a guest if they cancel.

PHOTO TAKING POLICY AT THIS CONVENTION
We know that taking photos makes the convention even more fun and we thought it would be a good idea to share our photo taking policies for you before you arrive at the convention so you can prepare. In the auditorium, photo taking is encouraged, but only from your seat. It is unfair to run up to the stage and block the view of others who have paid for reserved seats in front of you. Even if there are empty seats, patrons must sit in the seats they paid for to be fair to everyone. Due to fire marshall regulations everyone must be seated during performances. Please also be courteous to your neighbors when taking pictures. Photo taking is not allowed during autographing sessions nor during the photo ops. Only those people who have autograph tickets may come up to get autographs. Thank you for understanding the need to have these few rules so everyone is safe and has fun.

The vast majority of our guest celebrities take questions from the audience during their on-stage time. Therefore it is incumbent upon those that ask questions to make them ones that allow our mutual shared time with the celebrities to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining for all (including the guest). Asking for hugs, telling stars we love them (we all do, that's why we're here), giving gifts, getting into long personal stories, or worse, is not acceptable for this format and, in fact, is quite self-centered when you are in essence "representing" all of fandom to a celebrity. Join us in trying to make this convention the best entertainment for everyone!

In the event of convention cancellations or date changes Creation Entertainment is not responsible for patrons' costs involving travel or hotel accommodations or any other non convention ticket expenses.

Advance ticket sales are generally turned off early to mid-week of the week of the events. Tickets, if they are not sold out, are sold at the convention of course.

Creation celebrates our many years of Convention Memories

Issac Asimov
Here's a pic of the legendary sci-fi author/genius Isaac Asimov, a frequent visitor to our early conventions and quite a character as well! It is amazing that we got to work with him after reading so many of his books.

Young Hercules Ryan Gosling
From the "you never know" category, here in the middle is "Young Hercules" at our Official Hercules/Xena Convention (pictured with his co-stars from that short lived series). He's better known by his real name today: Ryan Gosling, an incredible actor doing wonderful work in feature films.

Karl Urban, Kevin Smith and Danielle Cormack
Back in the heyday of Xena popularity we had the pleasure of meeting some of New Zealand's top talents as they often guested on the series which was filmed in that beautiful country. Left to right: Karl Urban who went onto major stardom as Star Trek's new Dr. McCoy, Kevin Smith, one of our all-time favorite guests, on the verge of international fame when he was killed in a tragic accident, and Danielle Cormack who continues to perform in New Zealand.

Robert Englund
For over two decades we had the pleasure of presenting the country's leading horror fan conventions, Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors with the popular magazine and illustrious editor Tony Timpone. These shows were a breeding ground for up and coming genre talent and that makes us proud. Here, one of the icons of the field, Robert Englund, on stage.

Bruce Lee Action Figure
During one crazy phase we started manufacturing action figures and selling them in Toys R Us amongst other national retailers. Bruce Lee was probably are most realistic looking figure, but we also had success with Saturday Night Live figures and Drew and Mimi from The Drew Carey Show.

Farscape Convention
It had one of the most loyal and passionate fan movements behind it and a gloriously talented cast of performers working with amazing and intelligent scripts. We were delighted to be associated with this incredible and still missed series and it was always a special pleasure to work with star Ben Browder.

Early Creation Convention
We were ahead of the times back in the 80's with conventions mixing all sorts of fan favorites together. Usually all the different fandoms got along and it is nice to see that Dr. Who is more popular than ever. We were licensees back in the day and worked with many of the earlier Doctors, including, of course, the larger than life Tom Baker.

Official Star Trek Convention San Francisco
Here is a scene from a recent Official Star Trek Convention in San Francisco with Brent Spiner on stage speaking to a sold out crowd.

DeForest Kelly
There was never any guest nicer than the amazing DeForest Kelley who graced our stages many, many times always putting on a warm and entertaining presentation for his legions of dedicated fans. He was just as cool as you would want him to be!

Nimoy and Quinto
The only time this ever happened: Three Mr. Spocks on stage, a really special moment

Spock Bust
It all started with a Mr. Spock head: our entry into the world of Star Trek merchandising began full time when we purchased 1,000 of these 35 years ago or so. We still have a few left!

Star Trek 45th Anniversary
Every five year anniversary marks a special time to remember for Star Trek fans and our conventions take on an air of a family reunion of long-time fans and the stars we all admire. Sadly we also mark the loss of some of those talents who appeared with us regularly at our events. They are missed.

TV Land Store
One of our most fun to run conventions was The Official TV LAND Convention. Here is the convention store we set up offering goodies to fellow TV fanatics!

Larry Hagman
This is pretty cool: Sam Rubin interviewed legendary Larry Hagman at our TV Land Convention, sadly a one-time only gathering, but did we ever enjoy meeting so many of our all-time favorite TV stars!

Tim Conway
Another wonderful moment from the TV Land Convention: here's the hilarious Tim Conway regaling the audience with anecdotes about his career that has spanned decades.

TV Land
Dick Martin, George Schlatter and Alan Sues at the TV Land Convention

Creation's Amazing Panel
Here's an amazing panel we did in LA at the famed Biltmore Hotel: Forry Ackerman, Ray Bradbury, Ray Harryhausen and John Landis!

Jack King Kirby
Comic book and entertainment fans owe much to the legendary JACK KIRBY, the revered talent who co-created the Marvel mythology and made many early appearances with us, among his most devoted followers. Although his passing never allowed Jack to see the amazing success of his characters in film we do know that his appearances at conventions always brought down the house!

John Noble
It is always great when we can personally thank a performer for an absolutely beautifully done job and that was just the treat when John Noble appeared in Feb. of 2013 wrapping up his epic FRINGE series, one of our all-time favorite shows!

Alfre Woodard
The beautiful and talented Alfre Woodard graced her stages to reminisce about her appearance in Star Trek as Lily in the movie Star Trek: First Contact, but of course she is best known for being an Academy Award and Grammy nominated actress as well as having an incredible 17 Emmy nominations (winning four).

William Shatner, Sir Patrick Stewart and Leonard Nimoy
Our Vegas Star Trek Convention is ALWAYS full of surprises! Sir Patrick Stewart joins William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy in this once in a lifetime moment! We're glad we were there!

Here's some shots of Leonard Nimoy's last convention appearance (courtesy of Paul Harvath), taken at our Chicago 2011 Official STAR TREK Convention. Thank You Leonard for your three decade association with Creation: we've loved every minute of presenting you to your adoring fans (of which we number ourselves!):
Nimoy Farewell

Leonard Nimoy's emotional farewell to Star Trek Conventions: 2011 Chicago

Nimoy Farewell

Nimoy Farewell
These guys are HILARIOUS on stage together and we love having them at our events: true superstars of the genre: Jonathan Frakes (now busy directing) and Brent Spiner!

Customer support e-mail: ANY problem you have please write to us at: customer.service@creationent.com and we'll look into it and get right back to you. Thanks!

ADA rules on service animals: This event welcomes service animals as per the ADA rules. Service animals perform valuable work or tasks and are trained to provide help directly related to a person's disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and therefore are not permitted at our event.

Regarding the issue of alcoholic beverages at the convention: we do not allow alcohol to be present in our function rooms including the main theatre. This includes daily panel events and the Saturday night concert. We kindly ask, for the evening event(s), you do not bring bags unless necessary. Water stations will be available in the room and, for those that have special medical needs, you can discreetly discuss those with security before entering and we will do bag checks. We regret that we've had to take this measure, but we must protect our audience and celebrities. We retain the right not to allow entrance into any of the events to anyone who shows up appearing intoxicated.

All guests are announced when contracted, and all convention contracts include clauses allowing actors to cancel if they get film and/or television work. In the rare case of a guest cancellation we always try to do our best to replace performers. We cannot, however, refund tickets for a convention admission based on a guest cancellation, beyond of course specific autograph and/or photo op tickets which are not included in packages.

For those attending our conventions and making travel plans: please know that the majority of guests that appear on stage do so usually in the later part of the day (although that is sometimes different for actors working on a current series). Sometimes autographing runs into the evening or later when guests appear late in the day. Because we have to wait for guests to give us their flight information we cannot tell you in advance when these autograph sessions will occur until the convention schedule is posted at this website a few days before the event. For those out-of-towners that want to guarantee autographs of stars appearing on Sunday, we do suggest staying over or planning a later leaving time.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL! We do suggest buying tickets only from the original source: through this website. Because all tickets are scanned for use at the convention we can ONLY allow the first person in using each singular ticket. Autograph and photo op tickets are also scanned for one-time use. WE’VE NOTICED A PICKUP IN BOGUS TICKETS and well-meaning fans being ripped off by those that have just resold copied tickets.

Flashes occur from phone and cameras often during stage presentations. If you are sensitive to such lighting please be advised to take the necessary precautions. For our attendees please keep flash photography to a minimum and familiarize yourself on how to get the best pictures in different lighting situations. Generally flash is not the best way to take photos at the convention. We will attempt to have a more detailed note page of getting the best pictures at conventions available soon.

 
 

Events

Along with on-stage appearances by our celebrities, we will be having various events to fill up your non-stop days of live entertainment. Here's what's planned so far:

Set Tours

GENERAL HOSPITAL SET TOUR: AN AMAZING CHANCE TO VISIT AND SEE THE ACTUAL SETS

Merchandise Area

We are pleased to announce our house band is distinguished Los Angeles based group DROP ZONE. They will be with us both days throughout the weekend and also perform in concert Saturday evening which will also feature celebrity appearances to be announced.

Dropzone

For 14 years, fans of Santa Clarita’s premier classic rock band, Drop Zone, have recognized an uncommon chemistry that permeates the music. Performing timeless classic rock songs that get people dancing has proven to be a winning formula. With an expansive track record of successful shows, including headlining the City of Santa Clarita’s Concerts In The Park, the band is stronger than ever.

Drop Zone continues to win over audiences in a wide variety of venues, including Nestle USA’s senior leadership conference at Montage Resort in Laguna Beach, the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce Taste of Expo, countless club dates, outdoor concerts, charitable events, and private parties. The versatility of the band derives from the depth and diversity of its playlist, the eclectic influences of the musicians, and the ability to respond to an audience's musical needs in real time.

Meticulously crafted multi-instrumental arrangements accompany chord-like two-and three-part harmonies. Drop Zone continues to enjoy momentum driven by a growing host of loyal fans, satisfied club owners, and repeat corporate clients.

Tickets

There are a number of ways to attend the convention and all offer different benefits. Please read carefully and take advantage of all you purchase. Please only purchase tickets from our site as all tickets are scanned for one-time use, and in the past we’ve had nice folks taken advantage of by buying second-hand tickets and then finding them worthless.

Our goal is to give you the very best time we can and as such EVERY ticket purchased guarantees you a seat in the theatre to see all the guests and events you want. No extra waiting, or worrying!

 

Please do not purchase tickets second hand.

There have been too many people who unfortunately are copying their scannable tickets and reselling them to unsuspecting patrons. We turn away any ticket that comes up SCANNED ALREADY and will let ONLY the first person in.

The only way to avoid this issue is NOT to buy tickets from anywhere but Creation’s website or at the convention itself at registration.

Please note: if you have autographs in a package you have purchased you are free to “gift” these to other people as long as they have some sort of admission ticket to the convention. Special exclusive events, like the private Gold Session, are for certain packages are should not be resold as the lanyard card and wristband must match for complimentary entrance to these events.

Customer support e-mail: ANY problem you have please write to us at:
and we'll look into it and get right back to you. Thanks!

 

NOTE: You may buy Photo Op and Autograph tickets before buying an Admission ticket, but you need an Admission ticket in order to use the Photo Op and Autograph tickets. Please buy an Admission ticket as soon as you can as we can never guarantee Admission tickets won't sell out before the show. Join our free e-mail list to get updates on ticket availability.

Gold

GOLD WEEKEND ADMISSION PACKAGE

At this early time we are happy to announce the on sale of our top-of-the-line, most prestigious GOLD WEEKEND ADMISSION PACKAGES including GENERAL HOSPITAL TOUR SET VISITS! There are ONLY 150 Gold Packages available.

This is the absolutely the most upscale best way to attend the entire convention and gets you the following amazing benefits at the First Official GENERAL HOSPITAL CONVENTION in BURBANK:

1) The very best reserved seats in the main theatre where all our major guests appear and daytime events occur! This seat is yours so you can come and go freely, and you can actually pick out your seat on our floor plan ticketing system. Great for photographers too!

2) Complimentary in-person autographs with fantastic guests (you’ll of course meet them while getting their signatures) including in alphabetical order: Rebecca Budig, Leslie Charleston, Matt Cohen, Michael Easton, Rebecca Herbst, Carolyn Hennesy, Roger Howarth, Wally Kurth, Michelle Stafford, James Patrick Stuart, Donnell Turner, Maura West, Laura Wright, Dominic Zamprogna, and Jackie Zeman. This list is tentative and subject to change. You must bring an item for the star to sign, there will be photos and other exclusive souvenirs on sale at the convention, or you can bring something from home.

3) The incredible benefit everyone will be talking about: All 150 Gold Weekend Patrons will have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the General Hospital sets on Saturday morning, in groups of 50. Complimentary bus transportation will be provided from the hotel lobbby and Gold Patrons boarding will be given a time of one of the three visits at our option. We will send you your boarding time and you will sign a liability waiver upon departure. Unfortunately if you are late we will be unable, obviously, to repeat this benefit. Tours will be concluded and attendees back to the convention prior to the start of any guest that is not also appearing Sunday. You won’t miss anything, but you will get this ultra-cool chance to see the actual shooting sets of General Hospital and get details from your knowledgeable tour guide.

4) First to get autographs: we go row by row for guests signing as part of packages: you are in the front rows: you get the idea! THAT'S RIGHT: you get to our guests earlier than our other attendees: after all "going gold" does have its special benefits. You get to meet the stars right after our VIPS (very few folks, usually about 10). On rare occasion due to travel itineraries some of our package autograph stars do have to sign for other patrons first.

5) Complimentary admission to our "SATURDAY NIGHT EVENING CONCERT”: You keep your same great seats you have for the day for this event as well! Our house band DROP ZONE is the anchor of the evening tentatively joined by several of our GH guests.

6) Preregistration: We get you set for the weekend with your credentials before other patrons (generally the night before the convention occurs we have preregistration) and give you first crack at the exclusive merchandise, and any available autograph and photo op tickets! Preregistration generally takes place Friday night. Preregistration is not a necessity, just a convenience. You can register anytime registration is open.

7) Wristband access: we have special color-coded wristbands and collectible credentials for GOLD Package Holders: once you get set you don't need to wait again!

8) Admission to the vendors and photo ops area, of course.

9) The right to renew your same exact seat (or try to do better) for the following year's convention in BURBANK, if applicable.

GOLD WEEKEND ADMISSION PACKAGE
WITH GH SET TOUR VISITS: $549

Autographs

AUTOGRAPH TICKETS

Autograph and Photo Op tickets do not include admission to the convention. You must have an admission ticket for the convention in order to redeem autograph and photo op tickets. Photography is not allowed during the autograph sessions.

Here's the ultimately rare chance to get an in-person autograph from your fave celebrity. You can bring something from home or purchase a souvenir/photo at the convention. Sometimes our more popular stars sell out quickly, so please order as soon as you can. THANKS AND HAVE FUN!

** Please note that we cannot accept "on cellphone" tickets for autograph and photo op sessions so you must print them out at home and bring them to the convention on paper, not your phone. Thank you! We can accept "on cellphone" tickets for admission however.

PLEASE CHECK THE LISTINGS OF THE GOLD AND SILVER BENEFITS TO SEE WHO IS SIGNING ON A COMPLIMENTARY BASIS FOR YOU if you possess those packages. Those stars will also be signing for non package patrons at a nominal price to be determined.

Note: Guests appear ONE day of the convention, so therefore their autographing and/or photo ops take place that day, except in VERY rare occasions which will be noted. If you are not attending all days of the convention it is wise to wait until specific days of appearance are announced before purchasing autographs or photo ops. You must have an admission ticket to the convention to get autographs or photo ops.

 

AUTOGRAPH TICKETS WILL GO ON SALE SOON, an announcement will be sent when that occurs.  Please note that those stars signing on a complimentary basis for Package Holders will also be signing for other fans at a nominal fee.

Photo-Ops

PHOTO OP TICKETS

Photo Op tickets do not include admission to the convention. You must have an admission ticket for the convention to enter into the photo op areas.

YOU ARE ALLOWED TO HAVE UP TO FOUR FANS IN A PHOTO, HOWEVER TO DO THAT YOU WOULD NEED TO PURCHASE TWO TICKETS (TWO FANS TIMES TWO TICKETS = FOUR FANS). Because of logistics and timing, and at the request of our guests and photographers, we cannot accommodate over FOUR fans in any one photo op.

A professionally shot photo will be done to commemorate your meeting of the celebritie(s) and you will given this full color 8 by 10 photo. Creation’s photographers are known far and wide as the best in the business. In order to avoid any patron being upset we like to point out that you are not buying a "conversation" with the celebrity. Recently some fans have been asking for hugs and special poses (some are even bringing "props") and this is making it virtually impossible for us to accommodate all the great fans that have purchased photo ops of the main stars in the limited time we have to do them.

We must, once again, remind attendees of the ground rules that the photo ops were purchased under and ask that you please refrain from asking for hugs and special poses. While many other fan events have resorted to putting their guests in director's chairs during photo ops we don't want to do this, though we may have to. PLEASE HELP US OUT AND BE FAIR TO EVERYONE BEHIND YOU IN LINE. Thanks!

Your photo will be taken by Creation's all-knowing and super-powerful official staff photographers. They take the best pictures, make the stars comfortable and willing to pose more freely with fans, and generally are beloved by all. JUST CLICK TO OUR E-MAIL FEEDBACK SECTION TO READ ABOUT HOW GREAT CREATION PHOTO OPS ARE! Please read: PHOTO OP F.A.Q.

** Please note that we cannot accept "on cellphone" tickets for autograph and photo op sessions so you must print them out at home and bring them to the convention on paper, not your phone. Thank you! We can accept "on cellphone" tickets for admission however.

Photo ops may be used for PERSONAL USE ONLY. Photo ops may not be used in whole or part, disseminated or distributed for profit or otherwise in any way.

Beverages are not allowed to be brought into the photo op room. Thanks!

 

PHOTO OPS WILL GO ON SALE SOON AND AN ANNOUNCEMENT WILL GO OUT TO OUR E-MAIL BULLETIN LIST WHEN THIS OCCURS.  Please note that photo ops are never included in ticket packages.

Creation Entertainment holds a "block" of rooms for our attendees. These blocks of rooms have a lower rate than standard rates at the hotel, but they also have a "cut-off" point after which hotels may choose to revert back to their own higher rates for our customers. Usually this cut-off date is one month prior to the event, but this does vary. Therefore it is always wise to book your rooms for our conventions as early as possible.

Schedule

Shows start about 10 AM in the morning and run until about 6 or 7pm at night, but they can start earlier and/or end later if necessary to accommodate an actor’s schedule for autographing and photo ops. The hour-by-hour schedule is posted late in the afternoon (California time) on the Wednesday before the convention.

All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change.

ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE.

We are not responsible for orders that are rejected during processing that may be due to customer errors (usually caused because the customer does not complete the entire ordering process to the very end), credit card failures (usually caused when there are not enough funds in an account or the credit card company rejects the charge for any number of reasons including out-of-state ordering or unfamiliar ordering to the customers’ general pattern), or system errors during transmission of the order.

Creation assumes no responsibility for typographical errors or inaccurate information provided by convention venues. All dates, venues and guests are considered tentative and subject to change. Check back frequently for updates.

NOTE: ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE. ABSOLUTELY NO AUDIO OR VIDEOTAPING ALLOWED AT ANY CONVENTION. Still photography is for personal use only -- public dissemination and commercial use strictly prohibited.

HARASSMENT POLICY: Creation Entertainment is dedicated to providing a safe and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of race, age, religion, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, or physical appearance. We firmly believe in the ideals of one of our mentors, Star Trek’s late and beloved creator Gene Roddenberry.
We do not tolerate harassment of any kind from anyone. Patrons violating these rules may be expelled from the convention (without a refund) at Creation's discretion and hotel security may well be called in to facilitate this response. If you have any issues with anyone, please ask to speak to Adam, Gary or Stephanie immediately. One or more of them is available at each of our conventions and they can be reached through registration or by the convention MC/host. Issues of this importance should not be handled by our volunteers, as great as they are.

By attending Creation events you agree to allow your image to be used on our website and in news documentaries or stories, either filmed by Creation Entertainment or other entities.

All ticket prices are subject to change, please order as early as possible.

In the unlikely event of a cancellation of the convention, or a date change, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for refunding airfare or any other costs other than the payments made directly to Creation Entertainment for ticketing. Also in the unlikely event, due to weather, transit issues or last-minute illness or other reason given by celebrity, an advertised guest does not make their appearance at the convention, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for any refunds other than separate tickets specific to the guest autograph tickets or photo op tickets. In the extremely rare chance that a guest does not finish his or her autographs or photo ops (which has only happened in a handful of cases over 40-plus years, always due to something out of our control) Creation Entertainment will only be responsible for the refund of the separate autograph or photo op ticket.

In the extremely rare case (which has never happened before) that our computer systems accept more tickets than we have allotted for, we would refund ticket money to the last several people (in order) who did manage to get a confirmation or ticket. As we've said it has never happened, but we want to have a fair scenario in place it if does occur.

Flashes occur from phone and cameras often during stage presentations. If you are sensitive to such lighting please be advised to take the necessary precautions.
