FAQ

NEW Since Octocon isn’t running physically in 2020, what happens to your membership?

Your membership for 2020 will be automatically rolled over to 2021. In other words, if you were a member of Octocon 2020 (check your membership) you are now a member of Octocon 2021.

If you would rather avail of a refund for this year, we will gladly accommodate your request – please contact members@octocon.com. Otherwise, we look forward to seeing you at our next in-person event in October 2021.

What is membership?

We do not sell tickets to Octocon. Instead we sell membership for our convention.

If you are a member of Octocon you are entitled to attend any event that we are running.

If an event has an additional cost, due to extra materials or similar, that cost will need to be paid when you sign up for the event.

What does a membership of Octocon get you?

Once you become a member you will have the right to access the public areas of the convention such as the panel rooms, the Trade Hall and the convention bars. Note that such access will be limited by local laws where relevant.

By becoming a member in advance of the event, you will also be kept informed about what is going on at the event, and have the opportunity to shape what happens at Octocon.

Who can register at the concessionary rate?

The concessionary rate for membership is available to students, pensioners, benefit-qualified individuals, and others on low incomes.

Teens aged from 13 to 17 can register at the Teen rate.

Children under the age of 13 are entitled to free membership, but must be accompanied by a guardian who has their own membership.
