MISTI-Con 2013 and MuggleNet have partnered together to create an immersive Harry Potter fan experience taking place in May 2013. MISTI-Con's main focus centers on the talent, art and achievements of the members of the fandom itself, highlighting the fantastic participatory nature of the fan community.
In this exclusive partnership, MuggleNet will also provide selected programming, including a live podcast with MuggleNet's Alohomora! for the conference. Unlike most other fan conventions, The Margate Hotel in Laconia, New Hampshire will provide MISTI-Con with exclusive use of the entire hotel. All the rooms, conference halls and common areas will be for MISTI-Con's use and more importantly, all hotel guests will be MISTI-Con attendees. This means extensive decoration of the grounds, hotel suites, and even pool area, to highlight further the complete experience of this conference environment.
We previously announced the launch of our partnership with a Kickstarter program to make the convention even more spectacular. The MISTI-Con Kickstarter is only live for three more days! Thanks to our awesome fans, it has already been funded. But, it's not over yet! There are still tons of exclusive rewards available only for this fundraiser and time is ticking away!
Kickstarter con registrations include the MISTI-con T-shirt and exclusive pin shown right here. Or, treat yourself to one of the VIP or Chief Mugwump packages and enjoy bonuses such as personal transportation to the convention from the airport, reserved seating at con programming and special events, and the delightful opportunity to name a custom drink that will be listed on the menu of the infamous Ray "The Dark Lord" Bartender!
The support, already, has been overwhelming and if the con could raise even more money, it can become even more excellent for fans. If the Kickstarter hits $9,000, everyone contributing over $10 will receive a limited edition poster. If it reaches $10,000 dollars, the masquerade ball will be upgraded and will host a delicious dessert buffet. Every dollar helps! All your support is appreciated! The Kickstarter link can be found right here.
We can't wait to see the fans at this fantastic convention next May. Will you be joining us?
