Here are somethings that you may not know.
VIP tickets are sold out.
Weekend passes are $85 + $13 service fee
Day passes are $45 + $9 service fee
The passes work for both RTX and SGC (Screw Attack) events.
You can find them here: https://rtx2016.frontgatetickets.com/ I cannot stress this enough, but I highly recommend you read up on the policies and procedures as far as buying tickets in bulk and how to transfer information to another individual. RT cannot process anything for you. Go to Frontgate.
Paypal is not an option but all major credit cards are accepted
The hotel blocks can be found on the RTX website towards the bottom. http://rtxevent.com/ If you've ever traveled before, you know to take advantage of the room blocks as soon as you can. Just because there is a "book your room before this date" does not mean that rooms will be available at the price until the very last day. Rooms fill up. That's how it works.
There is a hotel room share thread: http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rtx-2016/topic/32067...
There is a general FAQ thread: http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rtx-2016/topic/32067...
There is a "how much will things cost thread: http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rtx-2016/topic/32065...
If you are a sponsor, you should have received a 5% discount code via email which can be applied to the purchase of an RTX pass.
RT will NOT be mailing badges this year. Just like last year, they will have badge pickup onsite at one of the three venues (Convention Center, Hilton, JW Marriott). Because of this, while you can certainly buy a badge as a gift for a friend, you would need to call Front Gate PRIOR to RTX to update your name to your friend's name. This is the only way they will be able to pick up their badge once onsite since you would not be with them. (per @Bethany's journal)
The limit is 10 tickets per transaction.
That being said, I highly encourage you take a look through Bethany's journal post here: http://roosterteeth.com/post/51199127 because it seems to have formed into an FAQ forum, and she has been wonderful in answering many questions (some I am sure you may have as well!). So before you ask an RTX related question, read through the posts in that journal or feel free to post in the RTX 2016 forums. That's what they are there for.
I know a lot of you are either attending RTX or traveling by yourself for the first time. Trust me, don't worry. Take baby steps, plan ahead, read up on information that may serve as guidance to both travel arrangements and the convention itself and you will be fine. The unique thing about RTX is that you will have something in common with everyone there. So you automatically have friends! And the community has got your back. Don't be afraid to ask questions, but also don't be afraid to take the initiative and learn some pretty valuable adult knowledge. Traveling and convention attendance is a HUGE learning experience, so don't feel discouraged if you run into a few bumps in the road. It's happened to all of us. The bottom line is that you are embarking on a journey to meet up with one of the best communities in the world. Embrace that and all the struggles of getting there will disappear.
I am very much looking forward to meeting as many of you as I can during RTX. Who's all going?
