Ticket to Walker Stalker Con in Philadelphia

hotness: 2/5

Goldstar offers a Ticket to the Walking Dead Convention at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks in Philadelphia, PA, for free. (A service fee of approximately $9 applies.) That’s tied with last week’s mention as $45 under the lowest price we could find for this General Admission ticket. Book this travel deal by October 1 at 9:30 am ET; the convention takes place on October 1 and 2.

Of note: Although you can bring your crossbow, arrows are not permitted in the convention center.

We stand united with the Orlando LGBTQ community against homophobia, bigotry, and violence. Our community is strong and resilient; together, we will overcome hatred.

We wish to ensure to current and future ticket holders of Flame Con 2 that our event will once again be a safe space to celebrate the diversity and creativity of queer geekdom and LGBTQ contributions to pop culture.

We are taking addional safety precautions and intend to hire more security for the event than originally planned. We also count on having the full cooperation of local law enforcement.

We are thrilled to share the news that we’re expanding into Europe!

Planetary Resources is pleased to announce that we’ve signed an MOU with the Government of Luxembourg to work together on their initiative for the exploration and utilization of resources from asteroids.

As part of the press event in Luxembourg, I officially signed the agreement alongside Étienne Schneider, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Economy. Minister Schneider said that “utilizing the resources of space will generate new technologies and provide access to abundant resources that will not only benefit Luxembourg, but is an innovative pathway that will have numerous benefits future generations.” And I couldn’t agree more.

This partnership builds on our recently announced Ceres Earth observation business, deploying technologies which can be used to prospect resources on asteroids. Read the full release on our website HERE.

Thank you for being with us on this incredible journey.
