Online registration for ConGlomeration 2018 is now open.
Standard ConGlomeration memberships are $35 per person until Dec. 31, 2017 or until sold out (limit 200); $40 until March 16, 2018 or until sold out (limit 500); and $45 thereafter and at the door. One-day passes are available at the door only for $35. Youths aged 6-12 receive $10 off their ConGlomeration membership. Children five years of age and under are not required to purchase memberships.
TL;DR – The sooner you register, the cheaper your membership.

We’ll pay you to make friends (or possibly take hostages)!
Every new member you get to register for ConGlomeration 2018 earns you a sweet $10, up to the price of your own registration.
Refer four new members; get in FREE!
(“New” is defined as someone who hasn’t attended ConGlomeration any year since 2013, as verified by our registration staff.)
Paid $35 for your membership, but referred four new members? Your badge is free, and you’ll get a sweet $35 refund when you claim your badge at the Registration Desk. Paid $40 and got four new referrals? You’ll get $40 back at Registration.
Here’s how it works:
- Register and pay for your 2018 ConGlomeration membership
- Find a bunch of folks who have never been to ConGlomeration (at least since 2013)
- Get the newbies to purchase memberships online by Feb. 23, 2018 and list your full name in the Who referred you? field
- Wait patiently while our crack Reg Staff audits your newbie list for posers and changelings
- Receive an email from ConGlomeration Registration a couple weeks before the convention explaining how much money you’ve earned back
- Come to the convention, pick up your badge, and get a sweet kickback for all the rookie platypi you brought us
We honor group referrals, too!
Incorporated organizations (as in, you have your own corporate Tax ID so we can pay referral fees to a tax-valid company, rather than an individual) can also receive referrals. Just contact ConGlomeration Registration to enter into the program. We’ll arrange your purchase of memberships on behalf of your organization, which then sets how much your group can earn in referral fees. Bought ten $35 memberships for your team; you can earn $350 in referral fees. Best of all, your referees can simply list the name of your organization as their referrer, so they don’t have to remember any individual member’s name. (And we’ll even tolerate reasonable typos, so if Jim Kirk lists Starfleet as his referrer and Montgomery Scott lists Star Fleet, we’ll give the Federation Starfleet credit for both.)
Remember, your referrals must register online, must register before 11:55 pm on Feb. 23, 2018, and must list you as the person or organization that referred them.
All referrals will be audited by our Registration Staff to ensure that people claiming to be new members are actually new members and not just jerks trying to scam us out of $10 (you know who you are). You will receive advance notice of how many qualified referrals you have earned before ConGlomeration 2018. The decisions of the Reg Staff are final, not up for appeal and are non-negotiable (these folks are hard-core). Your referral fee will not exceed the price you paid for your personal registration; this is a way to earn a free membership, not become a high-profit human trafficker.
TL;DR: Bring in new members, get a refund on your registration.
We’ve all got those friends who have almost been to ConGlomeration several times. Every one of those near-platypi you get to pull the trigger for ConGlomeration 2018 gets you $10 off your own 2018 badge.
Now go out there and start recruiting!
Volunteer at Registration
The Reg Desk needs you! We need volunteers to assist members in filling out registration forms and paying for memberships (by processing credit cards and taking cash; there are no free lunches here). Reg staff also enter membership data in our database and generate badges. Reg volunteers should be comfortable handling money, answering questions, and making small talk. Fast typists will be worshipped like unto gods.
Volunteer for six hours and you get an exclusive, not-for-sale platypus parody t-shirt.
