CHICAGO STAR TREK 2014 CONVENTION
The tradition continues as Creation Entertainment’s Official STAR TREK Convention returns to the great city of Chicago, one of the true hotbeds of Trek fandom, and we have three truly amazing, non stop, celebrity filled days for you! It all happens June 6-8, 2014 at the beautiful Westin O’Hare Hotel.
Our guests include the iconic superstar WILLIAM SHATNER, Voyager’s Captain KATE MULGREW and male lead ROBERT BELTRAN, the sensational JERI RYAN in an extremely rare convention appearance, the legendary NICHELLE NICHOLS, Enterprise’s ANTHONY MONTGOMERY, two representatives of the Klingon Empire: GOWRON and MARTOK, the wonderful SUZIE PLAKSON, Ferengis ROM and NOG, and make up maestro JOHN PALADIN (who is transforming the original actors into the Klingons and Ferengis).
It is gonna be wild and ONLY happens once a year! For the past several years this convention has been completely sold out prior to opening so we do ask that you get your order in as soon as possible. At this early time the top of the line GOLD WEEKEND Packages are now available and you can actually pick out your seat in the theatre.
And remember, unlike any other major fan conventions, EVERY patron receives a guaranteed seat in the theatre: no additional hassles, no worries, no waiting hoping to get into see the stars and events you want! It is the famous “Creation Difference” and it really does make all the difference in the galaxy in making your vacation truly spectacular!
Join the stars and fellow fans by clicking through to the brand new CHICAGO STAR TREK site and stake your claim now to our very best seats (with other ticket grades to come in the near future!) www.creationent.com/cal/stchi.htm
