PROGRAMMING SPOTLIGHT: “We Are (Re)Generation Who”

Saying we do things a little differently at (Re)Generation Who would be an understatement. From changing the guest/attendee dynamic to offering out-of-this-world entertainment courtesy of the Doctor’s most fearsome foe (we mean Davros — don’t tell Missy!), we’re always looking for new ways to make sure you have our ear and we can keep giving you the best experience possible.

One big con tradition we break? We don’t do opening and closing ceremonies. Instead, we do more relaxed, personal panels where you get to talk to us and vice-versa. To that end, (Re)Gen 4 will kick off (as the last three have) with “We Are (Re)Generation Who.”

The one-hour panel is your opportunity to hear from founders Oni Hartstein and James Harknell about the inception of the event, their own personal experiences with the worlds of Doctor Who and conventions, and the Onezumi Events philosophy when it comes to fan events. There’ll also be question time at the end. So whether you want to know something fannish, fun, or organizational, you can chime in!

“We Are (Re)Generation Who” is our very first panel each year, and will be held Friday afternoon. An exact time and location within the con space will be forthcoming; for now, check out our Panel Descriptions page for more info on what’s in store.


Still on the fence about attending (Re)Gen 4? There’s not long left to pre-register, and our main hotel is filling up! Register in advance now (either for the full weekend or a single day), and add VIP tiers and advance purchases to your membership.

And don’t forget to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to keep track of all the goings on before (and during!) the event!

CON NEWS: (Re)Gen 4 Unveils Access Services Department

Meredith Peruzzi with (Re)Gen 2 guest Anneke Wills

Here at Onezumi Events, we are dedicated to providing a fun, comfortable, and safe experience for all our attendees, regardless of needs. Our previous events have included accessible seating and ASL interpreter “check-out” for attendees.

This year, we are proud to announce that (Re)Generation Who 4 will usher in the opening of our new dedicated Access Services Department, headed up by long-time staffer Meredith Peruzzi.

Peruzzi has been working as an interpreter in the East Coast con scene for 15 years, and has worked with the Deaf community for her entire life. As a museum director at Gallaudet University, she has had opportunities to learn new solutions for accommodation issues of all types. She’s also happy to listen — both to professionals in the field and to the people for whom accommodation is provided — to explore new ideas as necessary.

The new Access Department will continue to supply ASL interpreters as ever. But Peruzzi’s extra focus means the beginning of some new initiatives: “seat in line” options for those who cannot stand for long periods, designated seating for those with low vision, and special seating for those requiring mobility devices.

Of her new job, Peruzzi says: “I am committed to providing access that goes beyond the ADA and into providing a truly wonderful experience for our attendees.”

If you are an attendee and would like to request assistance from our Access Services Department for this year’s con, please email assistance@regenerationwho.com


Still on the fence about coming to this year’s event? Time is running out to preregister — and with big guests like Peter Capaldi, Michelle Gomez, and Rachel Talalay, we may fill the venue this year! Register now for single day or full weekend membership — and add on VIP tiers, autographs, photo ops, and more in advance!

FIVE WEEKS LEFT! Add to your membership for extra awesome!

Don’t fall asleep on us — the con is almost a month away! We’re working away on our programming schedule so you can start planning your awesome Doctor Who weekend, and will make an announcement when it’s ready to go. That’s when we’ll announce schedules for photo ops, too — thanks for your patience!

In the meantime, we’re getting closer to our deadline for shirt orders! Remember, the cutoff for con shirt orders and VIP Tiers 2 and up is March 4. After that, we will be closing orders for both standard shirts and VIP Tiers 2+. We will have some shirts in a limited number of common sizes at the event, but if you want to make sure you get the right fit, best to order now!

Our standard shirt has a sweet vintage design, featuring symbols for each of our three attending Doctors.

And our VIP shirt (included in Tier 2 and up) features two cute Doctor Hoots! Both are designed by staff designer Ginger Hoesly and printed at Imagination Print and Design. For accurate sizing, please consult our size chart.

 

Red Fish Rue Fish has also designed us some absolutely adorable glow-in-the-dark Cyberman zipper pulls! Tier 3 and up will be receiving these cuties. Don’t worry, they’re not actually crying — they’re just waiting for their forever home!

Plus, the Tier 1 VIP print is ready to show!

Here’s a look at Ginger’s art for 2018, featuring three Doctors rocking out. (VIP Tier 1 can be purchased on site and will include both the print and access to our ReGenerators mixer party, where you can hang out with other VIP attendees!)

Hit up our merch page for more info, then order your swag for pick-up at the event! VIP tiers and shirts can be purchased either at the time of registration, or added to an existing reg. You can also pre-order autographs and photo ops with your favorite guests!

CON NEWS: Last Weekend to Register at Best Rate!

Time is speeding along… and after this weekend, the price of a full weekend membership for (Re)Gen will go up!

This Sunday, February 11 at 11:59 PM will be your last chance to grab a weekend membership at $80. After that, prices go up to $90 in advance. That’s still one of the lowest prices you’ll see around for a cast list like this, but if you’re looking to save a few dollars for autographs and merch, get the best deal while you can!

Plus — while we do offer VIP tiers for things like limited-edition shirts and prints, and while we do have a couple of ticketed catered events (like Coffee with the Creators, which still has spaces!), a badge gets you access to all the panels! You don’t have to pay extra to attend any of our Big Events programming. If you’re in, you’re in!

Register now, and don’t forget to take advantage of our expanded room block to get an affordable room within the hotel!

CON NEWS: Welcome Writer Jenny Colgan to (Re)Gen!

We’re busily bringing together programming, events, and surprises… but we have time for one more guest announcement as things get underway for next month. Please welcome writer Jenny Colgan to our event!

Her works include Tenth Doctor book In the Blood, Eleventh Doctor book Dark Horizons, and entries in The Legends of River Song and The Legends of Ashildr, to name a few. We can’t wait to welcome this amazing writer and fellow fan to our event!

Jenny will be joining fellow Who creatives Rachel Talalay, Robert Shearman, Paul Magrs, and many more for our fourth year!

UPDATE: More Saturday photo ops added!

How’s this for ‘something nice’ — we’ve added more Saturday spots for the Capaldi/Gomez and Three Doctors photo ops! Head over to the registration page to reserve them in advance!

Note that this means we’ve had to cut slightly into the photo op times for the individual actors. So if you’re looking to get those, you might want to hurry, too!

Our autographs and photo ops are selling out quickly this year, but we want to make sure everyone who wants them can get them! Adding them to your registration in advance ensures that you’ll be able to get everything you want out of our event! (Well, almost everything… we still haven’t got that real working Type 40 figured out yet, but we’re getting there!)

CON NEWS: All You Need to Know for the Big Weekend!

We’re getting excited for our big event! Are you? (From the looks of our Facebook group, you absolutely are!) Most exciting of all for us is the new names and faces we’re seeing as registrations come in! We can’t wait to welcome you all to our latest event.

If you’ve never been to one of our cons before — or to a convention ever — then you may not be entirely sure what to expect. There’s still just under two months to go, but we want to give you plenty of time to get planning for the weekend! So if you’re new to the world of Onezumi Events or to the world of fan cons in general, here are some helpful tips:

 

The Hotel

We’re back at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace again this year, and it’s a lovely venue! The convention space is on the fifth and sixth floor, so don’t worry if you walk into the hotel and can’t figure out where the con is… just grab an elevator up!

Right now, there are still rooms available in the hotel itself at our special room rate. If you want to grab one of those rooms, use our special page to reserve your room. You won’t need to enter a code; it’s already accounted for. If for some reason you can’t get a room at the con rate, or are told the hotel is full, be patient — we’re filling up fast, and our hotel liaison will work quickly to make sure we either expand our room block or set up an overflow hotel nearby!

 

Navigating the Convention

Compared to other events, our venue space may look fairly small. We do that on purpose for the comfort of our attendees and guests — and so you can have a really special experience over the weekend!

You’ll be picking up your badge at the venue, regardless of whether you register online or in person, so don’t worry if you don’t get anything in the mail beforehand. We’ll be handing things to you in person at registration. Once we’re a little closer to time, we’ll notify attendees of the convention layout so they know right where to go when it’s time to come in. Don’t worry — we’ve got you covered!

 

Panels and Programming

We pride ourselves on unique and awesome programming that educates, entertains, and occasionally surprises even us!

At the moment, our Programming department is working away on this year’s schedule. We will have a list of panel descriptions available in the near future so you can see what’s in store and begin making lists.

As for the schedule itself, we are hoping to release that later this month. Considering many of you can only come for a single day and want to make sure you see your favorite guest(s) in the time you have available, we’re making sure to get that info out to you as quickly as possible.

If you’d like to see an example of what our schedules have been like in the past, you can click on the links here to check out our pocket programs from 2015, 2016, and 2017.

 

Photos and Autographs

If you want to make sure to get an autograph or pic with your favorite guest, we highly recommend you add them to your registration in advance! (You can do that even if you’ve already bought your pass.) Any actor guests not listed on the form will be added as soon as we have relevant info from them.

If you’re not a regular con-goer, bear in mind that you will need to have a pass to the convention in order to get to photos, autographs, and vendor spaces. But we have reasonably priced single-day passes if all you’re planning to do is drop in for the photo!

For photo ops, the maximum allowed in one shot is two adults and two children in addition to the guest(s) in the photo. So, for example, if your group were three adults and no children, you would still need to buy a second photo op. More info is available in our FAQ.

 

Volunteering

Thank you so much to everyone who’s sent in volunteer forms! Our ops team is going through each of them one by one to make sure each department has all the help it needs… but as you can probably imagine, we’ve had a major uptick in the number of volunteer forms we’ve received this year!

If you haven’t gotten a response, don’t worry! Our intrepid ops managers are working through the pile, and you will get a response soon. Thank you for your patience!

 

If you have any more questions — or if you’re looking for room shares, carpool, or fellow fans to talk to — check out our ReGenerators Facebook group. We’re 780 members strong, always willing to help, and are also a great place to share works in progress as you prepare for March!

Thanks as always for all your support!
