We are pleased to announce that QuakeCon 2018 ticketing will be available beginning on Friday, June 29th. Ticket sales for the BYOC will begin at 7:30 pm Central and can be purchased directly at https://www.showclix.com/event/quakecon-2018.
This year we’ve made a huge effort to improve our ticketing experience and address some of the long-standing requests from our fans. Here are some of the big improvements:
We’re excited to finally announce that we support purchasing tickets and reserving seats as a group! A single transaction can include up to 10 tickets.
Please note: Individual attendee names will be required for each ticket at the time of the purchase; matching photo ID is required for admission. No refunds, transfers, or name changes will be permitted.
We hope that families and clans can leverage this new functionality to sit together more easily than in previous events.
Seat Registration and Swag Pack Purchasing
The system we have this year allows ticket transactions to include seats and swag packs as part of the purchase. These opportunities are presented after seat selection and before payment. QdQ and UAC, as well as Swag Packs are available in limited quantities.
- You’ll only be able to buy one UAC Seat per transaction.
- Swag Packs will be limited to three (3) per transaction.
- Swag bags may only be purchased by residents of the United States (including its territories). ALL purchasers must be present at QuakeCon 2018 at the Gaylord Texan in Dallas, Texas August 9-12, 2018, and must present proof of purchase to receive the swag bag – unclaimed swag bags will not be mailed. Swag bags are not returnable or exchangeable – NO exceptions. This sale is limited to stock on hand; no rain checks are available. Void where prohibited, taxed or otherwise restricted. The product images shown are for illustration purposes only and may not be an exact representation of the product(s). Products and specifications subject to change without notice.
Each Swag Pack includes a premium roll-over backpack, a set of three exclusive pins, a QuakeCon stainless steel water bottle, a QuakeCon air freshener, an oversized QuakeCon mousepad, a QuakeCon luggage tag, and a 36-inch inflatable Rocket Launcher from Quake Champions.
Thank you for patience as we’ve implemented this new ticketing process for QuakeCon 2018.
