You do. Funding for OMG!con comes from attendees along with sponsors and dealers. Leftover money is put back into the con funds for the next year.
OMG Guy is the official OMG!con mascot. He’s crazy and full of energy! Keep an eye out for him at the convention, he’s sure to make an appearance every so often.
Not really. In the online world, OMG has become the common phrase used to describe the crazy, bizarre, and downright awesome. Crazy, bizarre, and awesome…that’s what OMG!con is all about.
Badges are given out at the convention itself. We will not mail out pre-registration badges or tickets. If you Pre Register make sure to have your ID and Eventbrite ticket that was emailed to you.

Price and manpower. We like to concentrate on supplying the most entertainment as possible without spreading ourselves to thin. This will be the first year OMG will be going past midnight on Saturday to 2AM.
Thought we did enjoy a long 8 years in Paducah Kentucky, the lack of a hotel was inconveniencing our attendees. We decided to make the move to a location that better suit our needs. Owensboro has a brand new hotel right next to it's brand new convention center. With an another hotel within walking distance open for OMGcon 2015.

Yes you can! But you won't receive any Pre Registration bonuses. We also don't sell any two day passes, it's cheaper to buy a three day pass then a two day pass. So it might be a better deal to Pre Register early even if you can't go all three days!
