REMINDER: You Can Still Purchase Autographs and Photo Ops in Advance!

Got a big weekend of panels planned and don’t want to miss a moment? Worried about having enough cash on you during the con weekend? We’ve got you covered!

You’ve still got time to preorder autographs and photo ops before the event — which has plenty of advantages when it comes to planning out your weekend.

1. You can use your credit card! Due to how our autographs and photo ops work, most of our guests will only be taking cash if you purchase on-site. Ordering in advance means that you can put it on your credit card and not have to make a trip to the nearest ATM or bring lots of cash to the event.

2. You know you’ll get what you’re there for! We keep (Re)Gen deliberately smaller than many events, but there’s always a chance lines will run long. If you purchase ahead of time, you won’t have to sweat your dream photo op or autograph moment getting sold out at the last minute.

3. Your weekend will be easier to plan! We have a few pre-reg only sessions early in the day, which means fans who purchase online can get their photo done first thing, then see the rest of the event! And even if there’s no pre-reg only option for your guest of choice, you’re still guaranteed your spot — which means more time to explore our panels and events!

Even if you’ve already registered, you can still add autographs and photos in advance. Just go to our registration page, choose “None” under Event Fee, then click the boxes for your preferred ops.

Don’t forget to come over to our ReGenerators Facebook group and let us know which of our guests you’re most excited to meet!

CON NEWS: LAST DAY for Con Shirts and VIP Tiers 2+!

If you’re still on the fence about picking up VIP merch, you don’t have long left… shirt sales for both our regular and VIP shirts end today at 11:59 PM Eastern time! After that, the order goes off to our printer.

VIP Tiers 2 and up will get this year’s adorable “Doctor Hoot” shirt, featuring the First and Twelfth Doctors. Show off your ReGen pride, and your love for all eras of Doctor Who, with this cute three-color design! Buying this VIP tier will also get you a gorgeous art print featuring our three Doctors, early entry to the Vendors Room, and entry to our ReGenerators party.

 

This year’s standard con tee features a throwback design and icons for each of our three attending Doctors. Both shirts (as well as our Tier 1 art) were designed by our staff artist and graphic designer, Ginger Hoesly.

You’ve only got a few hours left to pick up these designs, so add them to your registration now! (If you’re already registered, just choose “none” under the Event Fee heading.)

CON NEWS: Writer Guest Change Information

We’re sad to say that, due to a family commitment, Jenny Colgan will be unable to join us in 2018. We wish her all the best, and hope she’ll be able to join us in future years!

In her stead we will be bringing author Nev Fountain, whom we’ve previously had at (Re)Gen years 1 and 2. Nev is the author of several Big Finish productions, including the fan-favorite Peri and the Piscon Paradox. He has also contributed to Doctor Who Magazine, various anthologies (both fiction and non fiction), and premiered his original thriller Pain Killer at ReGen 2.

We’re looking forward to welcoming Nev back this year!

If you’re still on the fence about registering, be sure to do so soon — and be sure to get your VIP tier and T-shirt orders in, as T-shirt sales and VIP Tier 2+ sales close this Friday! We will attempt to have shirts in a few sizes on hand at the event, but cannot guarantee availability. So check out what we have on our merch page, then register or add them to an existing reg!

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!

Jenny is a best-selling author of slice-of-life fiction, and is also a writer (and major fan) in the world of Doctor Who! 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! And for fans who want some extra time with the people behind the scenes of the show, we’re hosting a Coffee with the Creators event! Add a ticket to your registration before it sells out!

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!
