Registration for LAFFCON is encouraged but not a necessity. We will turn away no one at the door (doors open at 10:00 A.M.).  

That said, a rough count of those planning to attend will help provide a better conference experience by helping us plan amenities like refreshments and Lafferty swag ("Is there such a thing as Lafferty swag?" you ask. We're certainly working on it.)

Registration for LAFFCON5 will open in May of 2020.


  1. I clicked "here" to register and was taken to a page reading "the service is not available."

    If I promise to show up, would you promise not to punch me in the nose for being unregistered?

    1. Michael,

      Unfortunately, those attendees who enter LAFFCON unregistered are cursed to wander the crowd in nameless obscurity. Too bad for you, pal. Your nose, however, will remain safe. And there are still cookies.

      I've taken the liberty of registering you. I hope you do not mind.

      I could recreate the error only once out of 30 clicks. The problem seems to be with the EventKeeper website. We'll see what we can do.

      If anyone else has trouble registering and reads this, please leave a comment here, as Michael did, and we will make sure you get signed in.

      Take care,
