The Office Convention site has finally posted an update with details!

August 23

I’ve received a tentative (but detailed) schedule of events for the convention weekend! A jam-packed weekend is being planned, including more than 10 “official” convention activities. People are hashing through the details this week. And probably the most important thing you want to know is this: yes, several cast members from The Office are planning to fly out and participate!

I’m sorry I can’t post any more details than that right now, but nothing is finalized. I will post more details as soon as I’m allowed! (And no, I’m not sure myself if I am attending …)

  1. I’m so excited! My friends and I are already making plans to carpool down. Scranton is only 2.5 hours from my house. Rock on!

  2. My husband isn’t too keen on me going, othewise I would have a hotel booked already. But I’m gonna work on it and hopefully I can convince him to let me go!

  3. This is my first post but I’m too excited about a convention to be quiet! If anyone has fears that this is a little too “trekkie”, please look into the years of fun had at the Lebowskifest in Louisville, KY every year (based on the film The Big Lebowski).

    Sure there is a costume contests and a lot of spontaneous dialogue quoting but there is nothing nerdy about it. I see so much potential with a Office convention. I can’t wait.

  4. Where’s everyone planning to stay? I’m looking at the Hilton right now, which isn’t too terrible w/ AAA rate. It’s a little tough to plan when details are so spotty on where the events will be held, it would be nice to stay at a place within walking distance of all the action…

  5. I’m there. Not sure if I’ll be around the whole weekend but I can’t wait. Rainn, Angela and Brian have already visited…time for some more! This news makes me feel better since I couldn’t make it up there today for the fun office events :(

  6. Just got back from Scranton (2.5 hour drive) and was there when they announced the convention at the breakfast. I immediately went to the front desk of the Radisson and booked my hotel room for that weekend.

    I talked to a couple of media folks who told me that they have already talked to the producers and the cast WILL NOT be filming that week so they are trying desperately to get as many cast members as possible to attend.

    The dream of the individuals organizing is to have Steve, John and/or Jenna show up but I understand that it is all about finance (aka, how much will it cost to get them to attend).

    IF YOU ARE GOING – BOOK YOUR ROOM SOON! I was told most events would be held in the downtown Scranton area and you have a choice of the Radisson and the Hilton if you want to be close!

    I AM SOOOOOOOOOO THERE!! WOOHOO!!!

  7. I would love to go to this. I would be coming from Colorado so I’m not sure. I’ll have to find a way. I must really love this The Office, I would never consider a trip like this for any other show.

  8. I just made a “good faith” booking at the Radisson; now I can only hope airfare goes down in price! I don’t know about any of you, but I sense many of my friends think I’m a little bit strange for being so into The Office. Therefore, I find myself holding back when I talk about it. So wouldn’t it be great to be among so many others who are just as nuts as me? (Nuts, in a good way, of course!) ;) Note to self: buy fewer lattes…need to save money for the Scranton party!

  9. Laura – don’t worry, you will be among friends that weekend FOR SURE!! I booked my room too – better safe than sorry!
