More Alternate Hotels

Norwescon Executive TeamBlog, Executive Team, Norwescon 35

The Norwescon room block has been sold out since early November — but if you missed out on staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Seattle Airport, this doesn’t mean you won’t be able to stay close to the convention! In addition to the already announced Hilton Seattle Airport & Conference Center, Norwescon has made arrangements with three other nearby hotels.

Norwescon wouldn’t be what it is today without all of you wonderful fans helping to spread the word — and trust us, that’s very appreciated! To that end, then…here’s this year’s flyer!

T-Shirt Artwork Chosen

Norwescon Executive TeamBlog, General Announcements, Norwescon 35

This year, the piece chosen is Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio’s “The 13th Reality”, the alternate cover illustration for The 13th Reality: The Journal of Curious Letters by James Dashner. Be sure to pick up your shirt at the t-shirt booth in the hotel lobby this April during Norwescon 35!

Norwescon 36 Room Cancellation Policy

A change is coming in the way we reserve rooms for Norwescon. It is a significant change for our members but we believe it will help us make more convention rooms available for our members at the cheaper convention rate.
