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 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

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!

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. We can't wait to do it all again for the new films!

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!):

Because we have six guests on Sunday at this time it is likely the day will run long and autographs may not finish till a bit late. Therefore if you plan on taking part in everything, including the upgrades for next year for first row and gold patrons, we always suggest making plans to stay over Sunday or at least know that we offer a full program on Sunday as well as the other days.

Those with SEPARATE Daniel autograph tickets or SEPARATE Daniel photo op tickets will receive a VOUCHER at the convention which will be good for any other admission, photo op or autograph ticket. We have also been advised that ARIELLE KEBBEL can only make Sunday, so if you can’t use your SEPARATE Arielle autograph ticket or photo op on Sunday, or if you had a DUO Paul Wesley and Arielle or Phoebe Tonkin and Arielle Photo Op you too will be issued vouchers which can also be used as above. You can also send THE VOUCHER into Creation, 217 S. Kenwood, Glendale, CA 91205 Attention Ed within one month of the convention and receive a refund if you prefer.

July 15, 2014: Due to The Teen Choice Awards we’ve had to make some changes in the days our guests are appearing. We thank them for working with us to come different days in some cases and we’re glad that we still have everyone coming plus new guests to be announced. NOTE: EVERYONE WHO HAD SATURDAY PREFERRED AND/OR SATURDAY GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS HAVE BEEN SWITCHED TO SUNDAY. EVERYONE WHO HAD SUNDAY GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS AND/OR SUNDAY PREFERRED TICKETS HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO SATURDAY. If you had a preferred seat you have been changed to the same seat on the new day. You will be receiving NEW TICKETS from us. Destroy the old ones as they will no longer be valid. If you can not make the new day you can let us know and we will either issue you a refund on your credit card or give you a ticket for the day of your choice. If you want either of these things done please write to edrod@creationent.com within one week of this note, or by July 22 end of business Pacific Time. We are sorry for this inconvenience but it is out of our hands and we would have had to cancel the convention as some of our major guests would have dropped out entirely if we didn’t change their day. If you have SEPARATE AUTOGRAPH TICKETS or SEPARATE PHOTO OPS you can no longer use we will issue you a refund on those if you let edrod@creationent.com know by July 22 end of business Pacific Time. We have also added two new guests who were awesome this past weekend in Jersey: Paul Telfer and Chase Coleman who will both be appearing tentatively Friday and Saturday.

All photo op and autograph tickets remain the same. We are not sending out new ones. They are actor specific, not day specific. You will use your photo op and autograph tickets on the day the actor is now appearing.

Here is a great way to attend ALL THREE days (YES THE CONVENTION HAS BEEN EXPANDED TO THREE DAYS THIS YEAR!) of the convention and personally meet the stars in attendance when getting your in person autographs. Here is what you get when you go "SILVER Weekend" for this convention:

1) Wonderful reserved seats in the main theatre where all our major guests appear and events and contests occur! These seats are YOURS, come and go, all three days. Your seats are behind the Gold Weekend Package seats.

2) You get to pick your actual seat in the theatre with our new ticketing chart system!

3) Complimentary in-person autographs with great guests: IAN SOMERHALDER, PAUL WESLEY, ZACH ROERIG, and MICHAEL MALARKEY. The value of these autographs, IS $190, so you know this is an awesome deal because on top of that you get three days of great LIVE entertainment from stars we love!

4) Among the first to get autographs as we go in order with Gold Patrons first, then Silver Weekend Patrons.

5) Pre-Registration Fun: we get you set for the weekend before other patrons and give you first crack at the exclusive merchandise!

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

7) Admission to the vendors area and of course!

8) Complimentary admission to our Free to all Karaoke Party which is a blast! Hosted by Micah Parker and tentatively featuring participants Todd Stashwick, Paul Telfer and Chase Coleman you will LOVE these: come to sing, come to laugh, come to enjoy the stars and hanging with fellow TVD fans from around the world!

$239

*Please note that if you have autographs as part of your ticket package benefits you will need to have something for the celebrities to sign. They will sign anything you bring from home and there is a wide assortment of photos and other collectibles on sale at the convention.

July 15, 2014: Due to The Teen Choice Awards we’ve had to make some changes in the days our guests are appearing.

NOTE: EVERYONE WHO HAD SATURDAY PREFERRED AND/OR SATURDAY GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS HAVE BEEN SWITCHED TO SUNDAY. EVERYONE WHO HAD SUNDAY GENERAL ADMISSION TICKETS AND/OR SUNDAY PREFERRED TICKETS HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO SATURDAY. If you had a preferred seat you have been changed to the same seat on the new day. You will be receiving NEW TICKETS from us. Destroy the old ones as they will no longer be valid.

If you want either of these things done please write to edrod@creationent.com within one week of this note, or by July 22 end of business Pacific Time. We are sorry for this inconvenience but it is out of our hands and we would have had to cancel the convention as some of our major guests would have dropped out entirely if we didn’t change their day. If you have SEPARATE AUTOGRAPH TICKETS or SEPARATE PHOTO OPS you can no longer use we will issue you a refund on those if you let edrod@creationent.com know by July 22 end of business Pacific Time.

WELCOME TO EVERYONE
YOUR CREATION HOSTS:
ADAM MALIN, GARY BERMAN &
STEPHANIE DIZON

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. PLEASE be on time as they move very quickly and once over we cannot repeat. There is no special placement on the Photo Op line for any ticket holder, excepting Backstage VIPS and those specified in the program, who may go first. ***SPECIAL POSES ARE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE ACTOR AND COULD BE BASED ON FLIGHTS OR OTHER ISSUES***

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 us know during the convention so we can solve the problem as it is happening. Speak to Adam, Gary or Stephanie so we can solve the problem as it occurs.

5) Please sit ONLY in the seat you paid for.

6) At the request of our guests, ABSOLUTELY no video or audiotaping PLEASE!

7) Please turn cell phones off and kindly refrain from talking when a speaker or event is on stage.

8) PHOTO OPS may be picked up in the photo op room when available, but not during a photo op session so we don’t interrupt the photographer.

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!). 

10) During autographs we generally call row by row or by number.
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) Eyeglasses may cause glare on photo ops. We do suggest if you wish to avoid this you take your glasses off. We cannot redo photo ops caused by glasses. Thanks!

12) PLEASE NOTE: some flash photography causes issues for some of our attendees. Most of the time, unless you are in the first few rows, flash damages the images anyway. We do ask that you limit use of flash on your cameras and those that have issues take the necessary precautions to avoid problems.

THAT’S IT: HAVE FUN!
Stay in touch at www.creationent.com

THANKS TO OUR VIP BACKSTAGE FOLKS: GET YOUR CREDENTIALS AT REGISTRATION AND HANG OUT BACKSTAGE DURING THE DAYTIME, BOTH DAYS! ENJOY & THANKS!

NOTE: For those that have the computer printed out tickets for Ian’s solo photo op and/or the Ian and Paul duo photo op, please bring these (and only these two photo op tickets) to registration when you arrive and we will scan your computer ticket and give you a regular hard ticket. Please present your tickets at registration flat and unfolded. All other photo ops: use your computer printed out tickets for those, we do not need these in advance.

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.

In the extremely rare case (which has never happened before) our computer systems may accept more tickets than we have allotted for. If that should occur 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 cautions.
