EeeeeatsCon (the five e’s are important) is a pretty interesting event that takes place in the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica (3021 Airport Ave, Santa Monica, CA 90405), which I specifically remember from the Annual Barney’s sale they would do at the location.
However, it’s a little different for this event. For $30 with online presale, $40 if you want to prepay for parking. At the location tickets, if available will be on sale for $35. I think it important to note that online there is around a $4 fee for digital purchase, so it’s not really a major discount to get pre-sale tickets, only important if you believe they may sell out on the day you intend to go. Parking however is different, prepaid parking is an up-sale of $10 with online ticket purchase, but at the location it will be $20. So that is definitely worth it.
It is important to note that many restaurants will be on site, selling food within the event. The ticket price goes toward the ability to see the musical guests/performances, panels, and speeches.
