The World Fantasy Awards will be presented following (and in the same room as) the Sunday afternoon banquet, which will begin at 1 PM in the Regency Ballroom. Banquet tickets cost $75 per person (or $750 for a table of ten) and are not included in the cost of your membership, nor do banquet tickets include admission to the convention. Everyone attending the banquet must be a member of the convention and must also have a separate banquet ticket.

You can pick up your tickets in the registration area at the convention. They will not be mailed to you. We will have a limited number of banquet tickets for sale at the convention, however we can not guarantee all entree choices will be available. Banquet seating is otherwise on a first come basis.
When buying online, if you are already a member of the convention, skip over the new-member information at the top of the online form to the “Membership #1 options” section, select “Purchase additional items only (no membership charge)” and then select from the ticket options on the form.
Note that while you must be a member to purchase tickets, a member can purchase multiple tickets; however, every person with a banquet ticket must have a membership in the convention. For example, you could buy a table of ten tickets, use one ticket for yourself, and distribute the remaining nine tickets to other members of the convention.
