Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Can children attend Tiger Con?

Of course!  Tiger Con is a family friendly event.  We will have some late night programming which may be 18+, but that will be held in closed panel rooms and clearly labeled as well as being after the young ones’ bed times!

Where can I stay for the convention?

The convention will be held at the Rainwater Conference Center.  The Hampton Inn is directly next door.  In addition to the Hampton Inn, the con is right next door (practically shares a parking lot) with the Fairfield Inn.  There are also several other hotels within one mile of the convention center, so there should be rooms to fit any budget all within walking distance of the con!

How will parking work?

There is plenty of parking at the Rainwater Conference Center, so don’t worry, and we won’t charge extra just to park!

What places to eat are available in that area?

There are numerous restaurants within walking distance of the con including Austin’s Steak House, Cheddar’s, Cajun Wild Crab, IHOP, and McDonalds.  We also have Valdosta Mall less than a mile away, with a wide selection of restaurants in and around the mall.  But the best place to eat is right at the con!  The Tiger Maid Cafe will offer full meals for lunch on Saturday and Sunday in the Rainwater Convention Center!  Fill up on some good food and be served by our kawaii maids and butlers!

Can I request a refund on my ticket if I will not be able to attend Tiger Con?

Due to the size of the venue, we have capped the number of tickets being sold.  That means that when you buy a ticket, it may possibly prevent someone else from attending.  Because of this, we will only offer refunds up to a month before the con.  Refunds will not be offered if we have less than 30 days to offer your spot up to someone else.

What is your COVID-19 mitigation plan? 

Tiger Con will have a 100% mask policy. No mask, no entry. We will also have a no-touch temperature scanner at the entrance so that nobody with a fever enters the building. The building will have one-way entrance and exit doors located at opposite ends of the building. Areas such as the dealer room where people tend to congregate will be marked for one way traffic. Each room (main events, panel rooms, gaming room, etc.) will be posted with a maximum occupancy in order to ensure space for social distancing. Hand sanitizer stations will be located in the hallways for public use. This last one is the big one: There will be a maximum occupancy limit for the entire building, which will cap the total number of people who can attend Tiger Con. That number will be determined soon, and we will announce it in the first week of May. Don’t worry, though, we promise that if you have pre-registered, you will definitely get in. However, we will almost certainly have to limit at the door ticket sales.
