I am planning on going to Minecon 2016 because I'm really close to it, but I have no idea what the pricing to go in is. Does it cost less for a "child" or a child accompanied with an adult? The pricing for Minecon 2016 may not be out yet but I just want a rough estimate.
That's way too high! They're just gouging people, not to mention that it's next to impossible to get tickets to begin with. They sell out in minutes of becoming available.
A smaller convention like "Gallifrey One" can bring in a lot of guests to Los Angeles from the UK with only a set limit of 3,000 tickets selling for less than $100 U.S. Much larger conventions such as Comicon can bring in close to 100,000 people with even more guests and still keep the price reasonable.
There is no reason for $200 U.S. for a ticket to a two-day convention. I know the organizers want to make a profit, but they should take a look at how other conventions do it. I'd bet that Minecon would sell out no matter how many tickets it had available. So, 20,000 tickets for $100 U.S. would give them the same profit. Yeah, they'd need a bigger venue, but if Comicon can do it so can they.
