Thank you to everyone who came out to (Re)Generation Who 2 this past March 18-20, 2016. This includes the staff, guests, collaborators, and attendees. Every single person gave their all to make this a fabulous weekend and I am incredibly grateful for your support. I would not be able to make these conventions without you. The positive reviews are already flooding in.
We’ve made great strides toward making an all-inclusive, family-friendly during the day space for attendees. I am so proud that our Children’s Programming has already been getting acclaim and press. You can thank Eric and Eta for this wonderful track – that even our guests were overjoyed to participate in!
I am already working to expand what we can offer for next year.
For me the convention starts – ok well – for me the con never ends. I am already planning the 3rd one for months now and so I basically am always working. But as far as deployment goes, my con last from Wednesday to Wednesday. That’s pretty brutal considering my average day during this time is from 5:30AM-1:30AM.
How do I do it? I have help. And coffee. And I wear a dress over running leggings and sleek-looking hiking boots so that I can do literally anything required of me while still looking presentable:
I need to get a storage facility in Maryland where the staff is. I live in New Jersey and so we store everything where I live. Well, this meant that on the last day I had to drive 2.5 hours home and unload the entire large panel van myself. Harknell has a bad back and while he did try to do as much as he could, I won’t let him injure himself.
It took 4 hours and by the time I was finished I was talking to the boxes as if they were people. @_@ It was worth it, though!
We have a lot of photos and video being processed, but here are some things from the con that I have right now.
Here is Nick Briggs, the voice of the Daleks and Cybermen, learning ASL:
Here is Wendy Padbury pouring tea at the sold out Tea with the Doctor VIP event:
Here is me with MORE BOXES TO LOAD WHEEE:
Here are some photos taken by Vinny of our 3 days of concerts, panel discussions, celebrity interviews, dance parties, the Davros Variety Hour, and general PARTY TIME. You never know what to expect at (Re)Generaton Who – and that’s because we are always evolving and developing our own content that you won’t see anywhere else – and we accept your suggestions. It’s a full time job, but well worth it for the results:
Here is our “So, How Did We Do?” feedback panel at the end of the con. That’s me in the center:
Thank you for coming out to (Re)Generation Who 2. Thank you for staffing. Thank you for being kind. Thank you for everything. Thank you for being you.
It was our goal to compliment the already amazing fan and con community with our work and we achieved that. I have a very specific vision of using this con to bring families of all types together – and to always support and help all other cons to create a better world for tomorrow with more cons, more fans, and more positive things to enjoy.
I LOL at you if you ask me “if” there will be a 3. I’ll let you know quite soon what the go live date for (Re)Generation Who 3′s registration is.
Here are some things people are saying:
