PoleCon 2022 Updates from the Survey

 Per usual, there was mixed response to numerous effects

Numerous of you loved the position, but some of you really abominated it. Numerous of you loved factory leaders and shops, but some of you did not. Numerous of you loved the exhibits, but some of you had veritably specific negative feedback on certain shows or performances.

 For those that have come every time pole dancing classes Chicago, we hope you continue to see incremental enhancement in the event despite the challenges faced time over time. < 3

 For those of you that this was your first time attending, we know some effects are amazing, and some effects are annoying as you navigate PoleCon for the first time.

 With holding one event every time, we only get ONE CHANCE to ameliorate effects and that chance is always challenged by being in a different hostel and just in general different set ups ever time including different factory leaders, merchandisers, general world situations, AND different attendees with different prospects.

1. Precious – Yes, the event is precious. We’ve written about it before so that you can be prepared (please note, some costs have gone over since this blog was published).

 In the history, we’ve handed passes to PoleCon in rubbish and as prizes for colorful other shows. We didn’t for the 2022 event. We did give a reduction for Black Friday and are likely to it again. In the history we’ve done deals on shops, we didn’t do that for the 2022 event. We’ve indeed tried package pricing for shops, just not on the 2022 event.

Unfortunately, due to rising prices on everything, we aren’t suitable to drop prices.

 There are a many common themes set up in the check that we will address

2. Factory leaders and shops. Some people asked for specific preceptors and/ or transnational preceptors. Unfortunately, due to COVID conditions, numerous were unfit to attend or choose not to because it was too hard, did not fit their schedule or some other reason. Some factory leaders canceled last nanosecond, and we had subs educate rather. We still had some transnational callers from Central America, the Caribbean and Europe. We hope more transnational folks can attend in the future. As for specific people, if you want also to educate – HAVE THEY APPLY. Operations will go out in the fall. We ENCOURAGE all factory leaders to be veritably CLEAR what their shops number so that you know what to anticipate.

 There’s unfortunately NO clear delineation in the pole world what’s intermediates. What’s advanced? We do our stylish to read factory leader descriptions and apply a introductory color- rendering system on the shops in the Cheat distance.

3. The Food. See 1, cost. Anticipate some form of heist and go lunch and breakfast option to continue that’s analogous to the 2022 food options. Why? Several reasons

 • People in a factory, can fluently snare and go.

 • People not comfortable taking their mask off around others, can fluently snare and go.

• Because see# 1 – costs have gone up and the only way to keep this event handling is to manage the hostel costs which include food costs.

 Insectivores – EVERY YEAR we work to make this better. We’re looking at ways you can tell us that you’re vegan when you subscribe up so we’ve a clearer idea of how numerous lunches to order. lower than 10 people posted us to say they were vegan. We guess every time grounded on former times how numerous insectivores attended and this time exploded with insectivores! Anticipate a vegan/ vertebrate/ gluten free/ dairy free quintet option.

We like to give lunch because it helps promote a sense of community. You can hang out and meet new people and do not have to spend time trying to find food in a position you’re not familiar with. It’ll be insolvable to feed to everyone’s preferences. However, we’d not be suitable to drop the cost of the PoleCon pass, If we did down with lunch unfortunately due to the cost of hospices. So, we’d rather give commodity to eat than nothing.

4. Temperature of the Apartments. Free factory room was hot – yup. That smelled. They had an air exertion problem. The free factory room is actually BETTER than it used to be. It was preliminarily part of the main room and we had sound problems EVERY YEAR. So, we’re working on perfecting this every time. Pole apartments were hot and also cold. Dress in layers! Hotel lyceums are notorious for having air exertion issues.

5. PoleCon Wrist Bands. The reason we’ve plastic wrist bands is so that you can rain, work outmatch. with them on and you only have to check in with PoleCon enrollment formerly. In the history, there have been problems of people participating wrist bands which means that some people aren’t paying for the event. A rubber wrist band or commodity differently that can fluently be slipped off makes this EASIER to be. We understand that some people have plastic disinclinations, some people have sensitive issues, and some people really just have no idea why they’re wearing a plastic wrist band are frustrated. We’ve tried fabric wrist bands (2019) and that didn’t work well at each, they rasped and smelled by the last day. We’ll continue to have plastic wrist bands.

6. Individual Show only tickets. We tell players in our detailed emails about performing that there are ONLY individual show tickets for BGP and Sexy available because it’s extremely grueling to clear a room between exhibits of everyone who bought that show and also allow new people in. Because the stage is bedded in the seller area, and we do this to support the merchandisers, this is veritably hard to police/ control entry. We clear the room for BGP and just doing that’s veritably grueling on PoleCon staff as people want to sit and get their spot, or they want to look at “one further thing ” from a seller, or they set up another door into the space because hospices have multiple entrances due to fire code. However, we may be suitable to do individual show tickets for all or at least further exhibits, If we’re ever in a position where we aren’t in a hostel chamber. Unfortunately, until also, the only tickets that are “ only ” are for the evening showcases. We do have a free/ pay what you can live stream that folks can view and we tell players about beforehand so they can partake the word with their musketeers and family. Also — regarding the live stream — YouTube will take down some effects due to brand. We’ve ZERO control over this and have no idea when it’ll strike. We’ll publish individual vides once we’ve them from our videographer. Some of these may also get taken down. We don’t bowdlerize or remove vides — that’s YouTube.

 In general, every time, we publish a lot of information about the event, in dispatch, in newsletter, on our website, on our social media, etc. And every time we get commentary and see commentary that “we did not know ” about commodity and so prospects didn’t align with what happed at the event and that made you frustrated.

 Still, please let us know! We want everyone to be prepared and to have as great a time as possible, if someone differently out there runs large events has any idea how to get people to absorb information or give it in a different format.

 Grounded on the feedback from this time’s event, we aren’t recommending any major changes to the 2023 event. Please continue to anticipate:

The entire event to bring further than you want it to including ( but not limited to) the hostel, the flight, the food, the ticketed.

Dress in layers for the challenges of hostel temperature control.

 Plastic wrist bands are then to stay. Please do not take them off while you’re at PoleCon and yes, you can perform with them on.

 Snare and Go lunch. * We will see if we can ameliorate collection of dislike information/ food preferences with a new system or an update to our being system.

A position that you love or detest. Factory leaders that someone loves and someone differently really hates.
