ConGlomeration returns Easter weekend 2018!

Cylon Easter BunnyLouisville’s geek family reunion will resume Easter weekendMarch 30 to April 1, 2018. And that’s not all that’s new for your favorite Derby City fan convention.

After hearing from our members, vendors, and guests that our previous venue was no longer adequate or satisfactory, ConGlomeration 2018 will instead be held at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Hotel & Conference Center. (Old-timers may remember this as the Executive West Hotel, home to many a past RiverCon.) With a new official hotel comes a few new surprises, too, including:

So, why Easter Weekend? We know that may present a few challenges for some members, but we’ve successfully hosted ConGlomeration on Easter before (most recently in 2011, at the Crowne Plaza), and the advantages of the new hotel made moving to Easter weekend worth it. In fact, the deal was so good we’ll be at the Crowne Plaza for the next three Easter weekends — March 30 to April 1, 2018; April 19-21, 2019; and April 10-12, 2020. Mark your calendars now.

To be frank, the only way ConGlomeration could afford a venue this nice was to agree to a holiday date, and Easter weekend proved to be the least objectionable holiday amongst our members when surveyed. It keeps ConGlomeration in Spring — the single most important concern among surveyed members — and overlapping with some portion of the local school systems’ Spring Break. To avoid Easter meant staying at our previous host hotel, and the deteriorating state of that facility made that no option at all.

Nonetheless, ConGlomeration is making a host of adjustments to accommodate the Easter holiday, including tweaks to our Dealers Room and Art Show hours to help attendees wrap up early on Easter Sunday, as well as the welcome return of a non-denominational on-site Easter Service on Sunday morning for all nerdy worshippers.

We hope you’ll take advantage of all that our new official hotel has to offer and spend your Easter with ConGlomeration.

Memberships are now available online (and we’re still offering bonuses for referring new members).

We’ll see you this Spring!
