All right. Let’s get going on 2021.

Last week, we announced that TrotCon 2020 has been canceled and all badges, unless you let us know otherwise, are being moved to 2021 (not requested a refund, rollover or donation yet? Here!). We’re also largely picking up what we had planned for ’20 and moving it into ’21, which includes not just guest announcements but also applications for panels, vendors and the like.

Now, we’re happy to say that we have someone new joining the TrotCon 2021 ranks: please welcome back Katrina Salisbury!

Katrina last attended TrotCon in 2019 and was in talks to return for 2020 before the COVID-19 pandemic struck. We’re super thankful that she’s able to stick with us, along with (tentatively!) the rest of our already-announced guest list, for next July.

Unfamiliar? In the My Little Pony world, she’s best known for voicing Yona on My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, something of a fan-favorite role in the closing seasons of the show. She’s also appeared as Nina on Molly of Denali, Angela on Tobot and more!

She joins previously announced VIPs such as Tabitha St. Germain, M.A. Larson, Elley Ray and Claire Corlett, along with a slew of community guests.

Speaking of community guests, we’ve got another TrotCon-related announcement for you. Not so much a new community guest, but… new sponsor perks!

Today we’re revealing three new sponsor tiers: griffin, kirin and batpony!

Now, these tiers are a little different than what you’d normally expect from a TrotCon sponsor badge. Instead of featuring perks more specific to our VIP guests, these snag you perks related to our community guests instead. You’ll have the ability to attend a community guest meet-and-greet during the convention, and you’ll also snag priority access to the non-mane events panel rooms.

Additionally, you’ll get many of the perks generally associated with those price tiers not related to priority mane events access or the VIP meet-and-greets — autograph vouchers, posters, priority vendor hall access, the usual. Our changeling and draconequus tiers will automatically snag the perks associated with these new tiers.

Bit of an experiment here, adding these new tiers! If it works, awesome. If it doesn’t, we’ll cook up something else for 2022, yeah? Some of you have expressed interest in our community guests vs. the VIPs, so this here’s for you.

That’s all for now! Remember that badge sales for 2021 are now available, with a three-day pass running you $55 until we close pre-registration in June 2021.

We’ve got more VIP announcements coming down the pipe, too! Stay tuned.
