Our all-inclusive Dinner and Entertainment Experience is an exclusive party within a party with comedy, music, and many other surprises! It’s perfect for couples, groups of friends, or those looking to try an upscale New Years Eve experience with an imaginative twist.
And unlike most New Year’s Eve celebrations, we have things to do New Year’s Day! Our a la carte Schrödinger’s Dog Brunch will be served on-site, and the fun continues all afternoon.
But that’s not all! Included in your base ticket is access to our Enchantment Under the Sea activities. On Thursday, December 30th, Futurecon re-creates Back to the Future’s climactic high school dance. And from noon until 3PM on Friday December 31st, we’re having a cosplay friendly pool party, complete with hot tub time machine! Delegates from Atlantis will be in attendance.
And for fans of Stargate, come experience a Gate Nap! Don’t know what that is?! You will!
Of course, there are also charity tie-ins at Futurecon. Our primary charity is Epilepsy Toronto. To raise awareness and money for the 1 in every 100 people who live with epilepsy, Katherine Curtis, AKA “The Naked Nerd”, and David “Naked Dave” Ross have agreed to be painted purple! More charity events will be announced on our Facebook page.
BUT THERE’S MORE! Everyone loves free stuff, and there will be free stuff, including a souvenir keepsake program book that doubles as a photo album!
PLUS! Even more private parties from our sponsors, including Steampunk Canada! A gaming room! Kids activities! 19+ events! And so much more!
What makes this show different:
New Year’s Eve means premium pricing. At Futurecon, however, costs are competitive with conventions throughout the year. Because we are a not-for-profit initiative, you save money versus the downtown Toronto events which are out to cash in. Shop around and you will see that you are getting three days for the price of one!
At Futurecon, our registered attendees are our most important guests. YOU ARE THE STARS of this convention. From the moment you arrive at the hotel, you will experience the Futurecon difference.
LIMITED ATTENDANCE means no lines, no short supplies, no lock outs, no disappointments.
INNOVATIVE PROGRAMMING means there’s something for everyone and there’s never a dull moment, without waiting in lines or holding dens!
FRIENDLY CONVENTION STAFF who are ready to give you the best possible party experience.
A TRULY ACCESSIBLE HOTEL with level access to all common areas, knowledgeable, caring staff, and attention to accessibility details.
NO HIDDEN CHARGES! The price is the price, including all taxes and gratuities, making it much easier to plan your stay!
We are all fellow geeks with a number of years’ experience at other conventions and a deep desire to have FUN! Please see the links page for individuals’ personal websites where applicable.
