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. Note: Our ticketing office (Leticia) direct e-mail address has been changed to: creatickets@creationent.com

***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!

Free Shipping on ALL Photos!

 

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

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!

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's never happened before or after but 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!):

We can't wait to bring Creation Entertainment's The Vampire Diaries Official Convention to one of the true centers of TVD fandom: THE BAY AREA!
The romantic and suspenseful drama of the giant CW hit series The Vampire Diaries has given television viewers fantastic new stars that have seductively garnered a worldwide following of passionate fans. Today we are very happy to announce a new full scale convention coming this summer to the great city of SAN FRANCISCO, dedicated to the wonderful cast and crew of The Vampire Diaries! For 40 years Creation Entertainment has been "on the road" presenting the very best in conventions for our fellow fans. Founded in 1971 by two sci-fi and comic book fans, Creation Entertainment brings audiences the live excitement of meeting the performers we all love to watch to cities throughout the United States. Creation Entertainment welcomes The Vampire Diaries into its tradition of running officially licensed by the studio events for Star Trek, The X-Files, Stargate, Star Wars, Xena, Lord of the Rings, Supernatural, The Muppets, and so many more. As big TVD fans ourselves we are thrilled to add this new venture to our roster!

The perfect combination for providing YOU with the time of your life! And don't forget the famous "Creation difference": we do not sell ONE ticket above the amount of seating in the main theatre so EVERYONE who buys an admission ticket, no matter which grade, sees ALL THE STARS and all the on-stage main theatre events! No waiting on line to get into the theatre, no worries, all at a price that beats all other forms of live entertainment!

And, as a special plus, we are selecting beautiful hotel venues for these conventions since we know so many fans will be traveling in to enjoy the festivities. The Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport regally represents the Hyatt Regency Brand and we know you'll love its convenience, design and decor. Enjoy your stay (and make sure to check out San Francisco itself if you are new to the city, it truly is one of the world's greatest cities)!

Convention Events

Please make sure to bring ALL your printed out tickets to the convention as we can not replace any tickets forgotten or lost. This holds true for all ticket-buyers domestic and outside of The United States as we no longer have a will-call or hold ticket desk. Our convention sites generally have a business office where you can print out your tickets if you have left them home by mistake. Once you present your ticket(s) at registration, photo op areas, or autograph sessions they will be scanned for legitimacy and one-time use only. Thanks!

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!

TICKET PRICING: We know that our conventions are the greatest entertainment bargain around: full days of theatrically themed fun and nights filled with amazing celebrities, events, exclusive stuff, contests, parties, autographs and meeting fellow fans, many who become lasting friends. We thought it might be fun to compare our ticket prices to those of other events, so here goes (noting that many of the below shows only last a few hours at most).

Jerry Seinfeld - $72.80-$103.55
How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying – $67.56-$362.40
Spiderman on Broadway $69.50 to $238.80
Van Halen VIP tickets $1,250
Kelly Clarkson - $75-225
Roger Waters- $43.30-$265.80
Coldplay- $61-167.35
And please don't compare Creation events to those giant "comicons" where the theatres can not accommodate a fraction of the ticket-buyers they sell to. Not only is it overly crowded and unpleasant, hard to get food and use the restrooms, but you can wait and wait and still not get into see the stars and/or panels you want to. Imagine flying thousands of miles to see a star and then not getting in: well it happens at these comicons all the time but at Creation Conventions EVERY patron with a ticket (any admission ticket) is guaranteed a seat in our theatres to see all the stars coming to the show. It's the "Creation Difference" we want you to know about. And while we are at it, when we get autographs of our favorite stars (we collect too) we want them done on nice professionally done glossy photos, licensed and struck directly from the studio images, all of which you will always have at Creation events!

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.

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 who may go first or other notifications in the actual schedule.
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 please let us know at registration during the convention so we can solve the problem. We can't help out if you don't tell us!
5) Please sit only in the seat you paid for.
6) At the request of our guests, absolutely no video or audio taping
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 per audience member per celebrity. 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 use a wheelchair or scooter please go with your row or by your number. THANKS!

OKAY, THAT'S IT: HAVE FUN! And, we LOVE to hear feedback. Please write to:
