We’ve added a public page to the Conquer Con website: a page of our most frequently asked questions. This is a list of basic info that will help you understand some aspects about the convention.
If you’ve got a question of your own but don’t see it listed here, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Fill out our form on the Contact Us page and tell us what you want to know. We want to be sure you feel informed.

Is Conquer Con a family-friendly event?
It most certainly is. We’re working to build an event that is suited for all ages. There will be no rated R content and many of the activities are geared toward a wide age range.
Are kids free?
Kids 6 and under are free. Kids that are between the ages of 7 and 12 will need tickets but we’ve discounted the price to $15.00. See our Child Ticket here.
Will there be food?
We will not have on-site catering during the event but we chose to hold Conquer Con in downtown Appleton for a reason. There are plenty of stupendous cafes and restaurants to choose from, all within walking distance.
Where should I park?
The Fox Cities Exhibition Center does not have a ground-level parking lot but they are situated right next door to the Red parking ramp that’s on the corner of Lawrence Street and Appleton Street.
Can I dress up?
Yes, please! We encourage everyone to wear their favorite sci-fi/fantasy-themed costumes. We will have a Cosplay contest with a reward for best costume.
Can I get a refund?
We apologize for the inconvenience but we cannot offer refunds at this time.
Why do the ticket prices change?
The Child and VIP ticket prices remain fixed. The Standard Ticket has a fluctuating price. It’s designed so the earlier you buy your tickets, the cheaper they will be. Here is the schedule:
- Tickets will be $20 each until December 31st, 2019
- Tickets will be $25 each from January 1st, 2020 (this is the day our programming schedule will go live) until August 31st
- Tickets will be $30 each from September 1st until September 18th
- Tickets will be $35 each at the door on Saturday, September 19th
How long does the convention run?
Our doors open at 10am and close at 8pm. Some events and activities will run all day and some will be scheduled for specific time slots. When it is posted, our Programming page will show the full day’s schedule.
What comes with the VIP ticket?
The VIP Tickets cost $60 each. Currently, the VIP package includes access to a private seating room stocked with refreshments, a free swag bag (includes t-shirt and other cool gear), reserved seating at select talks, and specialized VIP emails.
When will the Programming page be complete?
Our Programming page will be open for viewing starting January 1st, 2020. However, it will remain a work in progress until the day of the event. When it is announced, we’ll have our headlining speaker confirmed and a few panels and workshops in place. As time goes on, we’ll continue to plan more attractions, vendors, and activities which will be added to the programming page as they come up. We’ll send out updates via our Facebook page and our email list as we do so but please do check back occasionally to see what’s new.
Can I get involved?
Absolutely. We’re actively seeking volunteers to help with all aspects of our event. Please see our Work With Us page for more information.
