So the day we announced the nominees for the Philly Geek Awards, the tickets sold out. All the seats in the Academy’s massive theater, gone. We were of course, incredibly psyched about this. However, a lot of tweets and emails came in from people who really wanted to attend and missed their chance to nab seats.
Well, we listened to you.
Today, we released 100 overflow seats for the Philly Geek Awards. Please note, these are not in the Academy’s theater. These seats are outside the theater in the Academy’s Dino Hall.
Here’s the deal:
We’ll have at least three viewing locations within Dino Hall – two projectors on eight foot screens and one 55 inch flat screen. After the cocktail hour, the Academy (and Geekadelphia) staff will set up chairs and get you situated.
The Academy will also have an eager IT guy working that night to make sure everything goes according to plan. You know, in case the streaming feed stops or has a hiccup, he’ll be there to fix it right away. We won’t leave you hanging!
Tickets have been discounted. These seats are $10 instead of $15. And don’t worry, you’re still going to get to experience the awesome 90 minute long cocktail hour. All proceeds from the Philly Geek Awards go to the Academy of Natural Sciences.
While we’re sorry we can’t squeeze more of you in the theater, we wanted to assure those of you who really wanted to attend could get in. We’d like to thank the Academy of Natural Sciences for helping make this happen.
So grab your tickets while you can. The tickets are available on the Eventbrite page right now. See you at the ceremony!
