What’s the VIP upgrade? How do I get one?

VIP upgrades are additional tickets that can be purchased. VIP sessions are held the Friday before the event and are very limited. These options vary from event to event, so they also aren’t revealed or up for sale until about 30 days before the event. You MUST have a general admission ticket before being able to purchase a VIP upgrade. These also vary in price. VIP tickets are a “fast fingers” type stocking. So you should probably set an alarm on your phone once you get the email with the stocking information. đŸ˜‰

 

What about Military tickets or scholarship tickets?

Scholarship Program: MommyCon wants everyone to be able to attend! If you’re unable to attend due to the cost of general admission, there are several giveaways to enter plus they have a scholarship program. Applications are selected randomly to receive the tickets. These tickets are non-transferable.

Military Tickets: Complimentary Military Tickets are for Active Duty Military members, Active Duty Military dependents, and Veterans (Rank E5 and below) who would like to attend MommyCon but can not financially afford a ticket. Military Discount Tickets are for Active Duty Military members, Active Duty Military dependents, and Veterans who have the financial means to attend an event, but would like to use the military discount program. For more information on how to obtain half price tickets utilizing the Military Discount, email tickets@mommycon.com.

 

Do kids need a ticket? Is the event stroller friendly?

Children 16 years and under are free with their parents. All adults must have a paid admission. Strollers are allowed, however there are many people and lots of toddlers/babies on the floor. If you must bring a stroller, be sure to really watch in front of you so no babies are run over! If it gets too crowded, you may be asked to fold the stroller up or park it on the outskirts of the room.

 

I’m on a budget- are there coupons/discounts/promo codes for tickets?

YES! Use the code FLUFFBUM17 for $5 off your general admission tickets! This code is not valid on presale or VIP upgrades. Need a little more of a discount? You can combine this with the social sharing discount at checkout! With these two discounts together- you’ll save $7 on your MommyCon General Admission ticket!!!
