Online Hotel Room Booking Now Available!

So, you’ve pre-registered and want to stay at the convention hotel?

Maybe you’ve been holding off on purchasing your membership until you could book your hotel room at the same time?


Well, you are out of excuses!  Go to our Hotel and Location page to get all the details and book online (or phone number if you’d prefer to book that way.)


Remember, even if you are a local, there are many good reasons to stay at the convention hotel.  The more rooms we book, the lower the costs for the convention.  That means we keep the costs down for you and are able to bring in more fabulous guests and activities.  Plus, it gives you more time at the convention and far less commute time too!  Thank you and see you at the convention!

Online pre-reg is LIVE!

Head on over to our membership page to pre-register online! Why should you pre-register instead of waiting until ConDFW and registering at the door? Because you save $15 per adult membership and $5 per child membership by using the following codes, expiring Sunday August 13:


Adult Academic/Military: EARLYSPEC


Pre-registering helps us a great deal, because we can (a) estimate how many attendees we’ll have and (b) have the funds available to us before the convention to pay expenses. Thank you!
