We retain the right not to allow entrance into any of the events to anyone who shows up appearing intoxicated. ADA Rules on service animals: This event welcomes service animals as per The ADA rules. Service animals perform valuable work or tasks and are trained to provide help directly related to a person's disability. Dogs whose sole function is to provide comfort or emotional support do not qualify as service animals under the ADA and therefore are not permitted at our event.
For those attending our conventions and making travel plans: Sometimes autographing runs into the evening or later when guests appear late in the day. Because we have to wait for guests to give us their flight information we cannot tell you in advance when these autograph sessions will occur until the convention schedule is posted at this website a few days before the event.
For those out of towners that want to guarantee autographs of stars appearing on Sunday we do suggest staying over or planning a later leaving time. We do suggest buying tickets only from the original source: Because all tickets are scanned for use at the convention we can ONLY allow the first person in using each singular ticket.
Autograph and photo op tickets are also scanned for one time use. If you are sensitive to such lighting please be advised to take the necessary precautions.
For our attendees please keep flash photography to a minimum and try to learn how to get the best pictures in different lighting situations. Generally flash is not the best way to take photos at the convention. We will attempt to have a more detailed note page of getting the best pictures at conventions available soon. ALL GUESTS are contracted to appear and all convention contracts specify that appearances are tentative and subject to change as film and television work demands take precedence as can a personal conflict.
Our events will take place whether a specific guest cancels or not we always try to book replacements and therefore we can not issue admission ticket or ticket package refunds if a particular guest does not fulfill their appearance contract. Of course we will always refund separately purchased photo ops and autograph tickets for a guest if they cancel. In the auditorium, photo taking is encouraged, but only from your seat. It is unfair to run up to the stage and block the view of others who have paid for reserved seats in front of you.
Even if there are empty seats, patrons must sit in the seats they paid for to be fair to everyone.

Due to fire marshall regulations everyone must be seated during performances. Please also be courteous to your neighbors when taking pictures.
Photo taking is not allowed during autographing sessions nor during the photo ops. Only those people who have autograph tickets may come up to get autographs. In the unlikely event of a cancellation of the convention, or a date change, Creation will not be held responsible for any financial loss associated with the purchase air tickets or hotel rooms that are not canceled virtually all hotels offer a 24 or hour cancelation policy, so there should be no jeopardy associated with sleeping room reservations.
We highly recommend you purchase travel insurance for any non-refundable items like airline tickets. Also in the unlikely event, due to weather, transit issues or last minute illness or other reason given by a celebrity, an advertised guest does not make their appearance at the convention, Creation Entertainment is not responsible for any refunds other than separate specific to the guest autograph tickets or photo op tickets.
- VidCon US is turning 10!
In the extremely rare chance that a guest does not finish his or her autographs or photo ops which has only happened in a hand full of cases over 40 plus years, always due to something out of our control Creation Entertainment will only be responsible for the refund of the separate autograph or photo op ticket.
The vast majority of our guest celebrities take questions from the audience during their on-stage time. Therefore it is incumbent upon those that ask questions to make them ones that allow our mutual shared time with the celebrities to be enjoyable, interesting and entertaining for all including the guest. Michael Shanks and Amanda Tapping! We love following their careers post Stargate and look forward to enjoying their work for years to come! How's this for cool?
Creation Entertainment's The Vampire Diaries/The Originals Official Convention - Whippany, NJ
Thanks, Bill and Leonard for being such a big part of Creation Entertainment! Who would have thought that as kids that watched classic Trek, that one day we'd be working with these show biz legends!
Superstar Legend Jack Nicholson made the "Creation" scene, a definite ultra-cool moment in our 40 plus year history! It's never happened before or after but it was another of our proudest moments: Let's hope we can pull it off again some day and add a few more?
The impeccable Ricardo Montalban created Star Trek's most popular villian as Khan but in person he truly was one of a kind and his two appearances for us were definitely amongst the most memorable! He is sorely missed by all Trekkers and was indeed a Hollywood classic himself!
Gracious and supportive to us as ever William Shatner made sure first time Creation guest star Joan Collins in her only convention appearance was comfortable on stage, reunited decades after their ultra-popular classic Trek appearance together!
As promised, a seat for all! Thank You Leonard for your three decade association with Creation: Leonard Nimoy's emotional farewell to Star Trek Conventions: Jonathan Frakes now busy directing and Brent Spiner! Founded in by Gary Berman and Adam Malin, two young teenage sci-fi fans in New York, Creation Entertainment continues an over 40 year tradition of producing the world's leading conventions for fans of genre television and film.
Inventing the concept of "traveling" fan conventions, Creation has brought its brand of live interactive entertainment events to millions of attendees throughout the United States, Canada and Great Britain.
Beginning with the development of localized comic book conventions in the 's 's, including its long running annual Thanksgiving weekend event in Manhattan, Creation later moved its interest into focusing on sci-fi, fantasy and horror television series and films.
InCreation Entertainment became the very first studio licensee for the production of film "stills" when Paramount Pictures granted the company a landmark agreement for the Star Trek franchise that covered photos as well as a wide range of collectible souvenirs. The singular combination of professional marketing and event management coupled with a passion for subject matter made Creation produced fan conventions enormously successful. At the height of Star Trek's popularity Creation Entertainment was organizing up to conventions a year, often running three or more events a weekend.
Creation's success with the Star Trek franchise clearly illustrated to the Hollywood community that genre fans were a valuable market for both publicity and consumer purchases, even long after a series left the air or a film awaited a sequel. Within a few years and after scores of meetings with marketing and promotion executives, every major studio began paying attention to genre fans and their collecting passions.
