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 Twilight, Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Firefly fandom (to name just a few) 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 can not 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 ony 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!

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. 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. At the Gold Exclusive Parties and Breakfast: photo taking is encouraged when the guests arrive (but only from your seats). After a sufficient time for all to get their photos we ask that your cameras be placed down so the celebrities can enjoy their time at the two food functions. 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

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!

Wally Schirra and Alan Bean
In 2006, space pioneers, astronauts Wally Schirra and Alan Bean, guested at Grand Slam: it was an honor!
Photo Credit: David Livingston

Kirsten, Robert and Taylor
Three of the most popular actors on the planet graced our stages along with their The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn director: Bill Condon, Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner helped us make history at an official fan gathering done in conjunction with the press junket and in association with Summit Entertainment.

Creation 1971
Our first convention program in 1971, ticket prices were $1.50 a day and our special guest was legendary comic artist superstar Jim Steranko!

Creation 1971
We even had time to publish 6 issues of a popular comic art fanzine called Infinity when we were teenagers. Back in the days before the internet printed fanzines and conventions helped keep fandom connected.

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
When we ran The Official STAR WARS Convention we brought in Gene Roddenberry as a surprise and this moment in time was a true highlight. Gene was a great mentor of ours and he is always in our thoughts, especially when we gather for our Official STAR TREK Conventions.

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
LOST was one of the great TV series of all-time and we were proud to be an official licensee for the show. Here three of the stars, Ian Somerhalder, Evangeline Lilly and Naveen Andrews, grace our stages in a Creation Convention appearance.

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
Two of our most popular celebrity guests from the Stargate franchise making their only Creation appearance together on stage: Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping! We love following their careers post Stargate and look forward to enjoying their work for years to come!

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
How's this for cool? Arnold as THE Terminator at our Official T-2 Convention, an awesome occasion!

celebrating star trek 40th anniversary
A VERY special moment in Creation History

BILL SHATNER & LEONARD NIMOY toasting the 40th Anniversary of Star Trek on the exact day, 4 decades later, that the original series began its TV run! Taken in Chicago at Creation's Salute to Star Trek's 40th! Thanks, Bill and Leonard for being such a big part of Creation Entertainment! Who would have thought that as kids that watched classic Trek, that one day we'd be working with these show biz legends!


History is made again at Creation when LEONARD NIMOY passes the ceremonial "#1 Vulcan" tee-shirt to the new Mr. Spock ZACHARY QUINTO. It all happened in front of the audience at Grand Slam XVI. Creation Conventions: it is ALL about making wonderful memories like this!

Jack Nicholson
Superstar Legend Jack Nicholson made the "Creation" scene, a definite ultra-cool moment in our 40 plus year history!

Patrick Macnee
Growing up watching THE AVENGERS was a particular joy so when Patrick Macnee joined the Creation line-up of stars it was a joyous occasion for us and his many fans!

Star Trek Captains
It was another of our proudest moments: having four STAR TREK Captains share the stage. Let's hope we can pull it off again some day and add a few more!

Star Trek Captains
Long-time Creation friend (and early fan attendee turned superstar producer) DEAN DEVLIN brought along friends Hank Azaria and Harry Shearer to one of our shows. Dean is currently behind one of TV's greatest shows LEVERAGE!

Star Trek Captains
The impeccable Ricardo Montalban created Star Trek's most popular villian as Khan but in person he truly was one of a kind and his two appearances for us were definitely amongst the most memorable! He is sorely missed by all Trekkers and was indeed a Hollywood classic himself!

Star Trek Captains
Gracious and supportive to us as ever William Shatner made sure first time Creation guest star Joan Collins (in her only convention appearance) was comfortable on stage, reunited decades after their ultra-popular classic Trek appearance together!

Star Trek Captains
As promised, a seat for all! Here's a scene of the amazing theatre we used for years for our Las Vegas Star Trek Convention. At Creation shows: no waiting and worrying about seeing the stars!

Star Trek Captains
Pretty Cool we'd say to have welcomed the ultra talented Elijah Wood as Creation promoted several Official LORD OF THE RINGS events.

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!):

It is our great thrill to present Creation Entertainment's OFFICIAL STAR TREK CONVENTION! For decades STAR TREK has LIVED largest in Chicago often holding enormous gatherings in the early years before the return of the series and the epic spin-offs and feature films. Midwest fans have much to be proud of and no one less than Gene Roddenberry himself gave credit to Trek fans for making his show the enduring legacy it has become, even ever stronger after his passing.

What a pleasing time for us, long time fans ourselves and protégées of Gene and Majel, to bring Gene's incredibly important humanist theories to a world that needs them now more than ever. The Chicago Convention is always one that makes history, and our two most recent events were highlighted by the emotional retirement of legendary Leonard Nimoy from conventions and another brought Sir Patrick Stewart and the entire ST:TNG cast celebrating their 25th Anniversary.

Needless to say, both were quick sell outs as "The Creation Difference" allows us ONLY to sell enough tickets as there are chairs in the main theatre so there is no hassle, no worry, and no waiting to see all the guests and events you want to! If you have attended all those other huge fan events in big concrete halls, you know that we're out to deliver the VERY BEST vacation for you devoted to our first true genre love: STAR TREK! Here for three glorious days you will love hanging out with like-minded folks who share Roddenberry's positive view of the future and celebration of diversity. Make YOUR plans now to be part of the fun! Our celebrity guest list is indeed incredible. Here's who are set to appear(see below):

The incredibly gorgeous and talented "7 of 9" of Star Trek Voyager really shook up the Trek world when she burst on the scene.

One of the coolest things about the convention is the chance to get in-person autographs on the item of your choice (you can bring something from home or purchase a photo or souvenir at the convention). At this particular show, due to popular demand, many of the stars will be present throughout the majority of the weekend, at tables in the vendors room, where you can purchase your autographs directly from them.

CREATION HOSTS: Adam Malin & Stephanie Dizon

WELCOME TO EVERYONE! Thanks for being with us! We really appreciate your visit and we want to make sure you have the absolute best time! With that in mind a few rules to keep everyone safe:
1) Photo taking from your seats only, do not rush the stage when guests appear.
2) PHOTO OPS are done on a first come/first taken basis with any exceptions noted within this schedule, including VIPs who can go first. PLEASE be on time as they move very quickly and once over we cannot repeat. “Special poses” are at the discretion of the actor and could also be based on flight schedules.
3) Please have your items for signature out and ready during autograph sessions. Personalizations are at the discretion of the celebrities signing and/or may be affected by guest flights and other scheduling issues. You must bring something to have signed, either something from home or a photo or souvenir from the convention.
4) Our volunteers are here to help you and we thank them for doing so. However, if you have an issue with ANYONE or ANYTHING please let the one of our Creation Hosts (Adam Malin or Stephanie Dizon) know during the convention so we can solve the problem. We can’t help out if you don’t tell us! Don’t let anything ruin your experience: let Adam or Stephanie handle the issue on-site!
5) Please sit ONLY in the seat you paid for.
6) At the request of our guests, ABSOLUTELY no video or audio taping PLEASE!
7) Please turn cell phones off and kindly refrain from talking when theatre is active.
8) PHOTO OPS may be picked up in the photo op area when available, but not during a photo op session so we don’t interrupt the photographer or the photo op in session. Full information on when photos will be ready for pick up is always on a hand-out, which available in the photo op room.
9) ONLY ONE QUESTION MAY BE ASKED TO A CELEBRITY BY A FAN. PLEASE NO PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT YOURSELF, ASKING FOR HUGS, OR TELLING THEM WHY YOU LOVE THEM (that’s why we’re all here!) By not following this rule you are taking time away from other fans who might want to ask something, as well as making the guest appearance more about yourself than the people we all paid money to see.
10) During autographs we generally call row by row or by ticket number (pre-convention tickets purchased are called first, followed by tickets purchased at the convention). If you have trouble standing let us know, if you are in a wheelchair or scooter please go with your row or by your number.
11) Flash photography occurs in our theaters and anyone who is sensitive to such should be advised that it is occurring and should avoid if necessary.

OKAY, THAT’S IT: HAVE FUN! We LOVE to hear feedback: write to asponsor@creationent.com or adam@creationent.com
