Do I need to add personal information to all tickets being purchased?
YES. The ticketholder's name, email address, and age should be on each ticket. If you let your name default to all tickets, then YOU will need to give the paper ticket to each individual or enter with them. The individual will have no recourse should something happen to you or they lose the paper ticket if their name isn't listed.

What is included in each ticket?
Early Entry has access to all signing authors for the day from 9:45am-4:45pm. An Early Entry ticket is ideal for those who have never been to a signing and or those who have many books to be signed. Since there are very few Early Entry tickets being sold , Early Entry ticketholders will be able to access many of the authors with limited lines. If you have a disability and or need additional time to get around due to physical limitations, you may want an Early Entry ticket. If they are sold out, please message us.
Early Entry ticket enters the signing room at 9:45am
General Admission ticket has all day access to all authors from 11:15am-4:45pm
There is NO other difference in tickets, no gifts, no extras-- just time.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Should you sell any tickets it will be your responsibility to transfer the ticket to the new owner by updating the name , age, and email address for each attendee. ALL SALES ARE FINAL AND NO REFUNDS. Prior to paying for your tickets you will be prompted to enter the name, email, and age for each attendee. If all tickets are in your name then YOU will need to give the paper ticket to each individual or enter with them. The individual will have no recourse should something happen to you or they lose the paper ticket if their name isn't listed.
**DUE TO THE NUMBER OF TICKETS SOLD WE WILL NOT MAKE NAME CHANGES FOR YOU** Should you sell your ticket this is between you and the buyer, you must change the names AND email address on all tickets.
Can I update my registration information?
Yes, log into your Eventbrite account and update your information there.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes however if you do not you can either present your bar code on your phone or present your identification as long as it matches the information on your ticket. Each event during RARE18 Rome will have it's own ticket.
Please bring one of the following with you to enter:
Paper ticket , electronic ticket, or identifcation that matches the name on the purchased ticket.
Identification is required for those who look under 16 or do not have your a paper ticket or a way to electornically check in and said identification must match the name on the ticket
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Tickets should match your identification so we can verify the age of each attendee and purchaser if ticket is lost or you are not able to check in electronically. For a smooth entry, try to make sure if possible that your name on your identification and your ticket match.
Is there a limit of how many items I can get signed by one author or in total at the event?
Some authors will have a limit of total number of items to be signed. This information will be posted as soon as possible and is subject to change at any time.
What can/can't I bring to the event?
Feel free to bring as many books as you like, Kindle covers, IPad covers,, and or any items you would like signed by authors. No alcohol of any kind can be brought into the event.
Do I have to buy my own books?
Yes. Books will not be provided for free. If you would like a book signed, please bring that title with you. Some attending authors will have a pre order sheet to bring books with them some will not. Traditionally published books will be available through a book seller at the event. **WE STRONGLY ENCOURAGE YOU TO BRING YOUR BOOKS WITH YOU TO THE EVENT*** Avoid having a broken heart should your favorite author sell out of books or the book retailer didn't bring that title.
Will a book seller (book store) be selling books at the event?
Yes however a book seller will only sell Traditional titles -meaning only titles distributed by a publisher. If the book you want is not traditionally published (the author is indie) then the book seller will not have the book. We will try and have a list of all available titles to be sold at the event, who is selling them (author or book store).

No events planned for Sunday
Will the author list change?
Yes. The author list is subject to change at any time. Ticket sales are final regardless of cancellations. Authors take signings very serious and confirm after much thought.
