Become a Member of RuffleCon Today!
Why "membership"? What's wrong with just "tickets"?
To attend RuffleCon, you must register for an annual membership. Membership registration is free, and you can add-on to your membership once you sign up to get more benefits. We provide the conference as a membership because of the additional benefits, such as the ability to attend additional events for free or a discounted price, you obtain throughout the conference year you are registered, whether you are free or paid. Paid members, depending on their upgrade, will be able to attend our annual membership conference in Stamford, CT.
When will the Membership EventBrite registration for upgrades be made available?
Registration for all tiers will be made available through EventBrite on March 6th, 2017 at 7:00pm EST
If I won a paid membership or special event ticket, can I use that to discount/upgrade a different type of membership or special event ticket?
No. Prizes from previous years cannot be used as a "credit". For example, if you won a Deluxe Membership during a contest, you cannot use that Deluxe Membership prize as a discount for a Premium Membership. If you want to purchase a Premium Membership, you can transfer your Deluxe Membership prize to someone else for them to use. Instructions on transferring memberships through EventBrite are listed on their website.
Can I purchase more than one membership at a time?
Yes. You can purchase up to two of the same membership in a single purchase. That means you can buy 2 Weekend Memberships and 2 Deluxe Memberships for 4 different people at the same time. You cannot, however, purchase 4 Deluxe Memberships in a single purchase. This is to help prevent scalping of our memberships during release dates.
What kind of information is needed from EventBrite when I purchase my membership?
You will need to provide for every membership a Legal First Name, Legal Last Name, Email Address, Mailing (Home) Address, and Birth Date. Please note that your legal first and last name must match your legal government provided photo identification. Your badge will not be printed with any information, so you will be allowed to write whatever you would like on your badge. The legal name is used solely to identify you while picking up your membership badge at registration at the conference.
Can I purchase a Tea Party ticket separate from a membership?
No. In order to get a ticket to the Tea Party, you must purchase a membership tier that includes a Tea Party ticket. This is because we have limited availability of seating at our Tea Party this year. Currently, the only memberships that include a Tea Party ticket are: Deluxe, Deluxe Plus, and Premium Memberships.
Will meal plans be offered separately from the membership itself?
Meal plans are included on every applicable membership tier (except for Single). If you would like to purchase a Weekend Membership, and would like a meal plan included, please purchase a Weekend Plus Membership. The same applies for Deluxe Plus and Premium Memberships, which also include meal plans for the conference weekend. Meal plans will not be sold at the conference.
