You can be…a VIP!

VIP tickets to the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference are going to be a key element of our fundraising. We have 100 VIP tickets available, when they’re gone, that’s it!
You not only get admission to both conference days (Sat. Oct. 15 and Sun. Oct. 16 at the UWM Campus) but you get a lot of added perks with the VIP ticket:

VIP Dinner Party

Our VIP dinner party will take place the evening of Friday, October 14, the night before the conference, from 5:30-8pm.

We’re happy to announce the venue for our VIP dinner party, which will be the Mitchell Park Pavilion on the Lagoon (524 Layton Boulevard.). Mitchell Park will be a nice place for you to take an autumn stroll before dinner, if you choose, or visit the iconic Mitchell Park Domes, which have been closed due to structural damage, although the Show Dome is anticipated to reopen soon.

Our venue is a nice pavilion located right on Mitchell Park’s lagoon. We’re still working on a menu, but it will include vegetarian and vegan options. We will have alcohol and non-alcohol beverages available. We will give you a short presentation on the conference and there will be a special performance renowned cellist and composer Janet Schiff (of the amazing group Nineteen Thirteen.)

Guest speakers are all invited (but that doesn’t guarantee all will be there) to the dinner party and will be divided up so we have at least one guest speaker (and probably more than one) at each table. We will also be having a party at a local bar after the dinner, which will be open to VIPs, other con attendees, and the general public. That venue is yet to be determined.


Tote Bag

The cloth tote bag will feature our 2016 logo screened on the side and will contain your VIP pass, a conference program, and we’ve given our vendors and sponsors the option to include swag to stuff into these limited edition (only 100) bags. For example, one vendor is providing us with 100 magnets, another is having stickers made. We’re also hoping to include coupons, postcards, and whatever else shows up! Inside, you’ll also find your conference program.

The Raven’s Masquerade Ball

Our big bash is going to take place Saturday night after the conference. The venue and entertainment is TBA, but will feature music, performance, and a costume contest (in several categories). The event has an Edgar Allan Poe theme and is free to VIP pass holders. More details will be announced in spring. 800px-Edgar_Allan_Poe_2_retouched_and_transparent_bg
