Hey all! First off, sorry to say that the RSVP form for the event is closed. We currently have 430+ attendees which is already slightly over the max capacity for the venue. We knew it was going to be a big event, but this is exceeding our expectations (more than twice as big as last year). 

Considering the number of people coming out, we do officially need to enforce a two board limit. Space will definitely be limited, so please respect that to help accommodate your fellow keyboard aficionados.

Looking forward to seeing you all and rolling out some teasers as the date approaches.

Crap, guess I'm not going to KeyCon despite living just across the river from it. :/

I wasn't even aware of the RSVP link / Google form or the max capacity for the event, nor has anyone mentioned or talked about it as a prerequisite for showing up.

RIP.

I mean it was in the very first post from the very start you only had to read it to see that there was an RSVP and you were asked to complete it.

Sorry you missed it. It has been pinned in the discord channel, on this thread, and on the reddit post from the beginning. I had originally not anticipated the attendance to be 2.5 times last year, but such as it is, had to make a cutoff somewhere.

Indeed, it's my bad for not seeing the link, but if it was as important as the rest of the post I would have preferred it to be big and bold as well rather than tucked away below location/date/time/description/discount code right next to an optional Discord link. As currently formatted I had missed it, and no one else had discussed it either.

A warning would have been nice too as max capacity was being reached rather than being told after the fact.

Is there a way to check if we added a guest when we RSVP’d? I signed up approximately a month ago, but now I cant recall if I added my fiancé as a guest and now Im worrying over it!

Will we need to check in now with the RSVPs being closed? I know before it was never very strict but since we will more than likely be at Max capacity, I want to make sure I get in if I'm not there early

Thank goodness! Thanks for the hasty reply; I was going to stress over it all night.

Do boards I physically attach to my person count towards the limit? ;)

*Opens trenchcoat, sweating profusely* Hey kid, wanna buy some clicks?

Jk but maybe not?
I'm just glad I won't be needing to lug a big ol' box-o-boards onto the bus.

Although, I am thinking about this limit...
I could bring my 2x1800... or my entire collection of awesome 30-40%'s and take up the same amount of space.
Could I bring my 2x1800, and use it as a display stand for other boards???
Haha I'm sorry, my brain is just churning with stupid ideas for loopholes. I won't push it, I promise.

Space will be limited. Please use your best judgement.

So I literally just found out about KeyCon from Tiny within the last week. I recently got diagnosed with cancer and I haven't been able to go around and look at conventions in my area due to being in and out of the hospital. I live right next to NYC (20 minutes). Is there anyway to be able to come to KeyCon or is it guaranteed that I won't be able to make it in?

Morning,

A few updates. Just launched the website for the event: keycon.info

You'll be able to find info on the schedule of events, giveaway rules, our (ever increasing) sponsor list, and some helpful information about the location and arrival.

I was also able to have a conversation with the venue and unfortunately we're still definitely at max capacity and will not be able to accommodate anyone from the waitlist. If anyone has signed up and is not attending, but wants to offer up their spot, that's still an option.

Was I supposed to get a confirmation email? I RSVP'ed a while ago. I think I registered as anonymous so I can't really tell if I made it onto the guest list.

No confirmation email. But yes, you're on the list with one guest.

Would it be weird if we started a "for sale/trade" thread in this subforum and people could list the stuff they have? That way, people could make some arrangements and complete the sale/trade in person next week.

I know I have some stuff, but with the limited space I wouldn't want to put any of it out.

That would be a good idea!

I was planning on holding my for sale stuff in a backpack and posting a little sign near my display boards.
