STAR TREK™ 50th ANNIVERSARY CONVENTION TO BE HELD
AUGUST 3-7, 2016 IN LAS VEGAS
Creation Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products Stage Once-In-A-Lifetime Fan Event With More Than 100 Star Trek Celebrities In Attendance
NEW YORK – August 22, 2015 –Creation Entertainment and CBS Consumer Products today announced that the Official Star Trek 50th Anniversary Convention will take place next summer on August 3-7, 2016 at The Rio Suites Hotel in Las Vegas. The non-stop five-day convention will host more than 100 Star Trek celebrities from TV and film and thousands of avid fans.
“This event has always been uniquely innovative and in tune with what the Star Trek fan wants and expects. Every attendee, no matter what their ticket price, has a chance to see all the stars when they want to without fear of waiting or not getting in,” said Adam Malin, Co-CEO of Creation Entertainment. “It’s the ultimate space where like-minded folks can meet the franchise stars, argue trivia, look at the scientific and philosophical pop culture impact of the brand and of course make friendships that have lasted generations.”
The multi-day event will explore everything from Star Trek’s set designs to its game-changing foreshadowing of some of today’s top technological advancements. Along with numerous costumes, prop displays, and convention-only freebies, the gathering will be a full-scale immersion for the ultimate Star Trek fan.
THE CREATION DIFFERENCE
KNOW THE CREATION DIFFERENCE, MAKE YOUR VACATION THE BEST EVER!
It certainly seems like EVERY year the famous “Creation Difference” becomes more and more pertinent. Unlike virtually every other genre fan convention, Creation Entertainment has a strict policy not to "oversell" our conventions. In other words, every patron, no matter what bracket of ticket they purchase, will have a guaranteed seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. There's no worrying, extra waiting, or additional charges to see the celebrities and events you want to see during all FIVE daytime schedules in the main and secondary theaters.
Another thing we love is that The Creation LAS VEGAS Official Star Trek Convention is in a super-large, super-nice, friendly hotel: completely carpeted and filled with award winning, various priced restaurants (including award winning buffets) as well as a dynamic casino, fun bars, and many areas to relax and chill in with fellow fans who share our common interests and ideals in Gene Roddenberrry's philosophies (of just like to talk trivia!). We aren’t in a cold concrete convention hall where food lines are mobbed, offer limited fare, and are super-expensive nor are our crowds uncomfortably huge. It is our goal as always to offer YOU the very best vacation we can: that is our true convention mandate.
Our Vegas Convention is the way we honor our mentor and great friend Gene Roddenberry. Can you believe we spoke to him on the phone 45 years ago when we were kids and he was incredibly gracious, answered all our questions, was encouraging, and never once let on that he knew we were young kids? When we worked with him for years at our conventions it was always a thrill, and did you know that we had the pleasure of introducing Gene to George Lucas on stage at their only meeting? Talk about cool and we're just as excited today as always about presenting the talents we love to our fellow fans. And we must add how gracious Mr. Lucas (who made his first appearance at our Official Star Wars Convention) was to Mr. Roddenberry. At that show, FYI, Lucas announced he was going to do more Star Wars films after the original three. Who knew we'd be seeing brand new Star Wars and Star Trek even to this very day: it's awesome! These are moments that we just will never forget and we hope to bring you (and us) more such wonderful times to cherish together.
At this particular show, and as a one-time thing, the studio is approving all vendors for this 50th Anniversary Convention. Please do not purchase a booth or table without an okay from us (which we will get from the studio). Write to us at email@example.com with what you want to display and sell, and of course note that anything infringing on studio intellectual property is forbidden, as is promotion of any Star Trek fan films.
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 can not 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. Selfie-sticks and other camera items that block the view of others is forbidden in the theatre. 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. It's all about FUN for all!
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.
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 is 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.
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 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 hand full 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.
