Thank you for supporting JordanCon! JordanCon will host an in-person event at the Crowne Plaza Atlanta Perimeter at Ravinia hotel, from July 16-18, 2021. The capacity of the event will be capped at 500 people, including staff, but not including guests (authors, artists, vendors, and media).
The 2021 event will be scaled down and several annual events will not take place as safety remains our top priority. Examples of activities that will NOT take place in 2021 include: ConSuite, Karaoke, Dance Party, Poker Tournament, Blademaster Tournament, and Speed Friending. Official room parties have been cancelled and open room parties are strongly discouraged and may not advertise in any convention areas. We are planning to provide a game room with limited hours for which you must bring your own games.
Additionally, most programming will have limited seating, including the costume contest and opening ceremonies. All program tracks will run a reduced schedule, and there will not be an Art & Artists track, though we are planning to host the art show and art auction. Our original Artist Guest of Honor, Mark Poole, will not be able to attend, though our Author Guest of Honor, Marie Brennan, is currently planning to attend. Members of Team Jordan and Team Sanderson, including Harriet McDougal and Brandon Sanderson, are also planning to attend.
We are working with the hotel to evaluate options to increase participation, including holding some events outdoors, and possibly broadcasting some events to overflow spaces.
In addition to reduced programming and services, there will be increased safety measures. All attendees must be fully vaccinated by July 1 and must provide proof of that vaccination no later than July 5th (instructions for providing proof of vaccination will be sent by the registration team following receipt of your RSVP). Proper mask-wearing, social distancing, and daily temperature checks will be required. If you do not pass a temperature check, or are unwilling to wear a mask over your nose and mouth, you will not be permitted to participate in convention activities.
Confirmation of plans for attendance will be conducted through an RSVP process. Beginning on Tuesday, April 20, we will send out the RSVP link via email to staff and eternal members to confirm their plans. We will then roll out the RSVP link to all members in chronological order of the month the membership was purchased. If you use any link other than the one received in your own email, you will be placed at the bottom of the confirmation list. To review the RSVP link release schedule, please visit the FAQ.
We know this is a lot of rules and changes, and we appreciate your understanding. We do look forward to seeing many of you this year – from 6 feet away!
