Spreading the word is highly encouraged! If you post about the event, we’d love for you to use #COPANYC19 in your posts!
Where can I buy a ticket?
Tickets will go on sale August 26, 2018.
Will tickets be available at the door or day of the event?
No. Tickets will be available for sale until August 23, 2019 or until the event is sold out.
Should I bring my ticket to the event?
Yes. Please bring a printed ticket or electronic ticket.
Will there be author pre-orders?
Yes. Many of the authors will have pre-orders available. The links will eventually be posted here on the site .
Will the authors have books we can purchase at the site?
Yes. Most authors will have books available for purchase at the table. However, due to space and the fact that many authors are traveling to the event, it’s recommended that you pre-order or purchase your books ahead of time. If the book you would like to purchase is traditionally published, you may be able to purchase it from the bookseller, however in order to be guaranteed the book, we suggest you bring a copy with you.
Can I bring books from home?
Will there be an onsite book seller?
Most likely. I’m working on booking a seller for the event.

Is there parking?
The hotel does have parking, however it is limited and for guests only. There are parking garages all over New York City. They can be extremely pricey but you can often find great deals on sites such as Groupon, Best Parking, ParkWhiz, and others.

What time should I arrive?
You may begin lining up at 8 am.

Many authors have the ability to take credit cards, however, you are highly encouraged to bring cash. Small bills would be extremely helpful as the authors can sometimes run out of change.
What will the authors sign?
Anything you bring! (No body parts please!)
Will there be a seating chart shared with the attendees?
Yes. The seating chart will be made available a couple of weeks before the event. They will also be included in your tote bag for last minute changes.

Not at this time
