Nice to see the list. Great stuff.

Not sure what Priority Line at Art Sales exactly means.

I think Early Access to Dealer's Room is the only unfair benefit in my opinion  (it's just an opinion! no killing wuff!)

I would love to see those Bathroom Towels with stitched EF16 Logo for sale somewhat later. That reminds me: Eurofurence Shop. ;)

In my opinion, the idea of (super) sponsor benefits is that you get something you *won't* get otherwise ...
So I would prefer if the towel is exclusive, and the early access priviledge is fair in the sense of "everybody could have become a sponsor". But I am not neutral here ...

Oh damn, sure, the priority stuff and seating and all is nice, but I honestly am mostly looking forward to that towel and mug (and Kage, of course, but I fear we will not be allowed to keep him^^), as stupid as it might sound, I'd love to get a bit more "furryness" into my everyday life with that. *laughs*

So far those gifts all seem like a nice choice, I'm excited to see them "live" in the end.
Sounds all like nice ideas to me so far, so, thanks already for this, cannot wait to see how the stuff turns out.^^

Not sure what Priority Line at Art Sales exactly means.

It's a second customer waiting line / queue in the Art Sales reserved for Sponsors that is designed to move twice as fast as the normal guest line, on average.

Exactly. So bid early, bid often ;-)

Aww, unfortunately my favorite artist isn't making it, but I'm sure I'll find some nice things to bid on :)

Yay towel and exclusive events and exclusive spots at Stage events!
For another 60 this might be not such a bad idea actually, considering one also helps and appreciates the incredible staff behind Eurofurence making all this possible for us each year.

I totally agree with you there, Skie.
We all know that the stuff put on sale is limited and those of us who just can't afford to be a Sponsor may not get what they want just because someone else had more money. Yeah, it's very unfair. It seems, though, as if the fact that the world goes around the money hit the furry (under)world as well. Where did the genuine help, where you give something expecting nothing in return, go? Do we really need to create between the furs all those lines that break down every society into classes, that divide the people on those better and worse? I don't want to make a whole new discussion out of it. I just want to say that in my opinion that whole sponsorship thing is going in the wrong direction. Just my two cents.

Well, you have to keep in mind, the sponsors and super-sponsors are those who make it POSSIBLE that regular ticket prices are where they are.  Without sponsors and super-sponsors, tickets would have to be about €30 more expensive. So think of it as €30 MORE than you can spend in the dealers den ... and the 104 super-sponsors who get early access are certainly less of a competition than the 800 other people who try to get in there when it regularly opens :)

104 super sponsors? hooray for sitting far away at the stage events for the mob! xD
I see it coming... the PPS will be closed due too many people.

Uhhmm.... Sorry but, you DO know that even if ALL of our attendees come to visit the PPS you STILL would even have a SEAT? :)

Double the overall attendee-count and we MIGHT have a problem with that. So don't worry, you won't have any problems with that.

We'll have around 600 seats ... that's almost twice as much as last year. So even if you substract 100 reserved seats, you STILL have more capacity than we had last year.  And we always have the option to release unused reserved seats when it really gets full. Which I doubt, because unlike the number of seats, attendance has not doubled :) There's really nothing to worry about. And if you're really afraid of getting a bad seat ... queue early, just like last year. Or upgrade to sponsor (not even supersponsor), and you'll be among the first to be let in and choose your seat ... our way to thank you for your generosity of voluntarily helping to finance this convention and keeping the prices affordable for everyone.
