WHAT IS THE 57-YEAR MISSION LAS VEGAS CONVENTION?
Fans of the Trek franchise can expect an action-packed experience with four days of programming featuring special guests, panel discussions, cosplay and trivia competitions, photo ops, autograph signing sessions, Trek and sci-fi merchandise and more!
HOW DO I PURCHASE AN ADMISSION PASS AND/OR AUTOGRAPH AND PHOTO TICKETS?
You can order your tickets online through this website. ALL TICKETS ARE NON-REFUNDABLE AND NON-EXCHANGEABLE and prices are subject to change at any time, so please order as early as possible. We will also sell admission, photo op and autograph tickets at the convention, if not sold out.
Be sure of which day a guest is doing photo ops/autographs before purchasing your admission pass. You must have an admission pass (single day or full convention) for the day of your autograph or photo op in order to redeem your ticket. Admission passes are required for all special events unless otherwise specified.
Admission passes and a la carte autograph/photo op/concert/special event tickets are delivered to you via email in PDF format which you must print out and bring with you to the convention. THESE ARE YOUR TICKETS, so there is no need to exchange them for physical tickets at registration, unless specified. Most customers should receive their PDFs within 3-5 business days of having placed their order.
We are not responsible for orders that are rejected during processing: On rare occasion, an error may occur during the ordering process that can require the order to be resubmitted. This can include: Incomplete form submission, credit card failures, or system errors during transmission of the order.
Lost or misplaced items: We are not responsible for lost or misplaced items. We cannot replace a la carte Autograph or Photo Op tickets that are purchased at the convention, so PLEASE make sure your PDFs and hard tickets are kept in a safe place.
STATE TAXES INCLUDED ON YOUR INVOICE: As a result of the Supreme Court Ruling during 2018 affecting online sales taxes (both state and local taxes), various states are requiring sales tax (both state and local taxes) on ANY online sales; therefore, you may now start seeing a separate charge on your invoice for this sales tax. The prices at the conventions will be the same as those on-line. This event is being held in the state of NEVADA which means you are now subjected to sales tax based on the final item’s price of an additional of 8.38%.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CONVENTION ADMISSION PACKAGES AND SINGLE-DAY ADMISSION PASSES?
The Convention Packages are admission passes that allow you access for all four days of the convention. Gold, Captain’s Chair and Copper Packages, as well as the Preferred Single-Day pass, are all reserved seating that you choose yourself from our website. The General Admission Convention Package and GA Single-Day Passes are not reserved seats, but you are guaranteed a seat in the General Admission section of main theatre. With your Single-Day Admission Pass, you’ll be able to see the guest panels and daytime events for the SPECIFIC DAY you choose to attend.
HOW DOES THE PHOTO OP PROCESS WORK?
Your ONE photo op ticket includes an 8x10 glossy full color photo of yourself with the guest and can include up to TWO fans (1 photo op tix = 2 fans in one photo). TWO photo op tickets can include up to FOUR fans in a photo (2 photo op tix = 4 fans in one photo). We cannot, however, accommodate over FOUR fans in any one photo op. Personal photography is NOT ALLOWED at any autograph or photo op session. Photo prints and jpegs of your photo ops may be used for personal use only. Photo Op tickets DO NOT include admission passes to the convention and are NEVER INCLUDED IN ANY CONVENTION PACKAGES.
HOW DOES THE AUTOGRAPH SIGNING PROCESS WORK?
Most guest will sign almost any item you bring from home or you can buy an item at the convention, but you need to have an item for the guest to sign. There will be tons of great photographs of some of the actors as well as other collectibles available at the convention that are perfect for signing.
Personalizations are at the discretion of the actor and may be determined by scheduling or other issues. Inappropriate items, body parts or items that are deemed offensive will not be allowed to be signed at the autograph table. If you want any type of clothing items to be signed, they may not be worn on a person, including shoes which must be new and unworn.
For those guests selling autographs directly to fans in the vendors room, check at the guest’s table for details, times and prices.
A la carte Autograph tickets DO NOT include admission passes to the convention. You must have an admission pass for the convention on the day of your autograph session to redeem the a la carte autograph ticket(s).
WHAT IF I GET A TICKET FROM A THIRD PARTY?
We cannot verify or guarantee admission passes or ticket purchases that are not made directly from Creation Entertainment. If you purchase tickets from a fan or other seller, it might not be legitimate. As we cannot be held responsible for second-hand sales, the first person using the PDF is considered the owner of the admission pass or autograph/photo op ticket. If you have purchased a fraudulent ticket, it will not be honored. Once you receive your PDF, do not leave it where others can make copies. Please be careful. Anyone buying or selling fraudulent tickets will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
WHAT HEALTH & SAFETY MEASURES MAY BE IN PLACE AT THE TIME OF THE CONVENTION?
The 57-Year Mission Las Vegas Convention will follow all local and state health department guidelines for COVID-19 to ensure a healthy and safe environment for everyone.
Disease and Illness Disclaimer: By using your admission pass, you recognize that disease and illness, including, but not limited to, the coronavirus (COVID-19), the common cold and other illness, may be spread through interaction with other people. Creation Events programs may be attended by many, sometimes numbering in the hundreds. Therefore, you agree that you will not purchase an event admission pass if you know you have symptoms of COVID-19 or any other communicable disease or illness, or you have a high risk of contracting or suffering from one, and you certify that you do not have any reason to believe that you have been exposed to or could be a carrier of any disease or illness. If you do attend, you agree that you will take all possible steps to protect your health and the health of others attending the event. You further agree that, by using an admission pass and attending, you thereby waive any claim of liability you might make against Creation Entertainment, Inc. or its officers, directors, employees and agents as a result of your contracting disease or illness from attending one of our events, and you agree that you will indemnify, defend and hold harmless Creation Entertainment, Inc. and its officers, directors, employees and agents against any loss that any of them may suffer or be obligated to pay as a result of any claim that may be made against any of them by others, as a result of your attending the event, including, but not limited to, legal damages, attorney's fees and court costs. If you are unsure of your status, please consult with your doctor before purchasing an event admission pass. You further agree that should Creation Events in its sole opinion believe that you may pose a threat to the health of others, it may deny you admission or request that you leave the event and that you understand and accept all risks that your attendance may encounter.
WHAT IF A SCHEDULED GUEST CANCELS?
All guests and scheduling are tentative and subject to change. Creation Entertainment does not advertise any talent without written permission from the talent or their representation.
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 well as a personal conflict. Our events will take place whether a specific guest cancels or not and therefore we cannot issue admission pass refunds if a particular guest is not able to attend. If a guest must cancel their appearance at the convention, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for any refunds other than the a la carte specific-to-the-guest autograph or photo op tickets as another guest will be booked as a replacement. Also, in the extremely rare chance that an actor does not finish his or her autographs or photo ops, we will only be responsible for the refund of the a la carte autograph or photo op ticket if not redeemed. We will refund or issue a credit voucher only for a la carte photo ops and autograph tickets for a specific actor if they cancel.
Please do not come for just one actor. Our events are a celebration of the series and multiple actors from the show attend. If we have a cancelation, we will do our best to book a replacement or we will provide our Iron Throne patrons with a pre-signed photo of the actor not in attendance if the canceled actor was signing for our top-tiered weekend package.
CAN I TAKE PHOTOS AND/OR VIDEO OF THE GUESTS ON-STAGE?
We know that taking photos makes the convention even more fun. In the main theatre, 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, HOWEVER, IS NOT ALLOWED DURING AUTOGRAPHING SESSIONS NOR DURING PHOTO OPS.
Flashes from phone and cameras occur 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.
Audio or video capture for personal use is allowed except in certain circumstances: Photography and audio or video capture are for personal use only - public dissemination and commercial use strictly prohibited. LIVE STREAMING, HOWEVER, IS NOT ALLOWED AT ANY TIME. If there is a time where we cannot allow audio or video capturing of the Q&As, we will advise in advance. AUDIO/VIDEO CAPTURING IS NOT ALLOWED DURING AUTOGRAPHS, PHOTO OPS AND MEET & GREETS.
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.
IS THE CONVENTION SUITABLE FOR ALL AGES?
This convention is intended for adults. On stage appearances by our guests may include off-color or inappropriate humor and profanity. Children are welcome if accompanied by an adult who is aware of the potential content. The views and opinions expressed by any talent or participant at, or during the convention are those of the authors and/or the persons appearing on stage, and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of Creation Entertainment, LLC or any of their affiliated parties.
HOW DO I PLAN MY TRAVEL?
Creation works with the hotel venue to offer special group rates for our attendees. Check our hotel page for the details to book your accommodation at The Rio All-Suites Las Vegas Hotel and Casino.
Please know that many of the headliners who appear onstage on Sunday usually do so towards the later part of the day. Autograph signings can run into the evening until 9:00PM-10:00PM. For those traveling from out of town, we suggest staying over until Monday in order to get your autographs and the full convention experience.

ADA Rules on Service Animals: This event welcomes service animals as per 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.

For over 50 years, we’ve been proud to present convention gatherings for our fellow fans in North America. It’s been a wonderful ride that allowed us to enjoy our love of the genre with others who share that passion. It’s been a wonderful ride that allowed us to enjoy our love of the genre with others who share that passion and follow the beliefs of our mentor Gene Roddenberry by creating events that present a positive view of the future celebrating diversity and inclusiveness. Unlike so many other genre conventions, 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 seat in the main auditorium where the major guests appear and events take place. Because of this process of not overselling we have a huge vendors room where it is possible to easily check out each booth without fighting seam-busting crowds.

This includes, but is not limited to, harassment of any kind both in advance and/or at a particular event, illegal activity, unreasonable rowdiness, patrons lacking adequate hygiene and inconsideration to others. Refusal of service shall never be based on race or color, National origin or citizenship status, religion or creed, sex, age, disability, pregnancy or genetic information, Veteran or Military status, marital status, sexual orientation or gender identity, medical condition, political affiliations or activities, or status as a victim of domestic violence, assault or stalking.
Close the doors on the outside world and join thousands of like-minded fans to honor Gene’s vision for the future.
