I have been asked a lot of questions about ConStruct, so I thought I'd whip together a quick FAQ of sorts.I don't go to conventions, would I enjoy ConStruct?
Well, let me put it this way; one of the basic reasons we created ConStruct is because many of us spend much of our year putting together conventions that others enjoy, but we really don't get to hang out with our friends. Don't get me wrong, we really have a great time putting things together, but we'd really like to have a convention at which we can just hang out, have a beer or 20 (for those that imbibe), and partake in the enjoyment of people whose company we value.
So, if you want to hang out with us and enjoy our company the way we want to enjoy your company, then yes, you'll have fun. Yes, there will certainly be things going on around you that are all…well…“convention-y”, but certainly none of it is mandatory; it's just there for the doing if you are so inclined.
So, to make a long story short (too late), yes, you would enjoy it if you enjoy just hanging out with those of us that are going to be there.It costs $35, that seems like a lot!
It is. Of course, realize that with the $35 price tag you have a lot of benefits…access to the pool and hot-tub, 24-hour access to food and beverage, several meals per day, beer and hard cider, and the hotel function space for our lounging and relaxing. If you are only showing up for a day, it might seem like a huge amount, but consider what you would spend during that same day for meals and beverages (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), and I'm guessing you're probably in the same ballpark.
Add to that, the day rate of $25 for those that will be only there for one of the days and you really can't complain too much about the price!Should I go to ConStruct?
Duh! Of course you should!
