The Event Registration page for DCS 2016 is now OPEN.

Access is available from the main website: https://www.deloreanconvention.com

Use this direct link to Event Register: https://deloreanconvention.com/index-stripe.php

Since the Event Registration is up a little later than we initially anticipated, we will be offering
Discounted General Registration and Dinner Pricing to DCS attendees who register before June 1, 2016.

As mentioned numerous times in the past, DCS will be different this year and so is DCS Registration.
General Registration cost is very low, but you will also need to register for at least one dinner.

By keeping the DCS pricing low, we hope that attendees will help DCS by buying one or more Raffle Car
tickets, which funds DCS 2016, and to increase your chances of winning the 2016 DeLorean Raffle Car.

www.deloreanraffle.com

We still have more than half of the 2016 DeLorean Raffle Car tickets to sell, so keep on buying them.
The more Raffle Car tickets that are sold, the more VIP Guests names move from Tentative to Invited.

The Raffle Car funds are being used to pay for both the Convention Center and most of the VIP Guests
attending DCS 2016. We have lists of tentative/invited VIPs and we announce them as they confirm.

Below is a list of "First Time" DCS VIP Guests that have confirmed in the past week:

- Colleen Booth, personal secretary for John Z. DeLorean (DMC years) from mid-70's to early 80's

- Ronnie Arnold, one of the drivers of the 50K Endurance Testing (using pre-production DeLoreans)

- George Levy, auto journalist who attended the DeLorean Junket for the DeLorean's Initial Release

For more details about the convention and the current "First Time" and "Returning" VIP Guest Lists,
check the DCS event website and DCS social media pages for all the latest updates.

What's the difference with the dinners? I figured we'd sign up for the Friday dinner because I think that's when the raffle is supposed to be announced. Saw there were different prices for each day so I figured I'd ask.

How do I register more than one car for judging? Seems the program will only allow one car to be registered.

More details on the actual food choices in the dinners will be announced at a later date, here, on the DCS website and on DCS Social Media pages.
The food details cannot be finalized with the venue until 60 days before the event, so look for those details to be posted after they are finalized.

The differences in the "after dinner" VIPs talks and presentations at the dinner venue (after the food) will not be finalized until VIPs are confirmed.
In general, there will be a stronger focus on BTTF on Thursday night, with more DMC VIPs on Friday and Saturday. More details as VIPs confirm.
Saturday evening dinner will likely have the most VIPs attending, and of course, the Car Show Award Presentations will also be Saturday evening.

Since there are very few DeLorean owners that regularly bring more than one DeLorean to DCS (besides Tony Swann and myself), we decided not to
"clutter" the registration for the other 95% of the attendees. If you intend to bring more than one DeLorean (which I personally encourage) feel free
to contact me directly via PM (include an email address and phone number) and I will forward it to Tony Swann, who is handling the registrations.

Awesome response, Rich. Thanks so much. I'm not so concerned about the food but the talks are important (I like BTTF but not really in this context). Going to register my wife and I and pick up some raffle tickets tomorrow. Greatly appreciated.

Rich, I don't see any details on that convention website. It only has the links for registering, the hotel and the raffle. I was curious who the guests were for the event, previous or new. I glanced at the FB page (I don't have a FB account anymore, so can't click on much) and saw mention of the itinerary, but it was short on details. Thanks.

A few of the pages that were intended to be posted yesterday were delayed since Tony and I had a last minute Vendor Meeting
and we were not able to review the content between posting the Event Registration and the mid-day meeting. We plan to review
the content today and have it posted within the next 24-48 hours. Below are two of the partial VIP Guest Lists (new/returning).

- Steve Concotelli, Executive Producer, OUTATIME: Saving the DeLorean Time Machine (documentary)
- (members of the Cast and Crew of the Back to the Future Trilogy - not yet confirmed)


Partial List of the "Returning" DCS VIP Guests that have confirmed:

We have over a dozen more invitations that have been sent, with interest expressed, but not confirmed
and over a dozen more that are in the process of being sent on behalf of DCS 2016 Planning Team.

More details will be posted as the guests confirm.

I just became a new owner back in November of last year and this will be my first convention. As far as the Car Show Judging...what categories are there? I wasn't sure if I needed to throw my car in the running for something or not. :) I've got my car running really good but there a few more things I think I might want to take care of before starting out on the 8 hour drive.

Whether or not you have your DeLorean judged, all DeLoreans are welcome and encouraged to be displayed in the Prairie Capital Convention Center during the Car Show on July 23.
Not all of the judging classes have been set yet, but the primary classes will be mileage designations, grouped in logical groups, based on the mileages reported during registration.

The DCS 2016 Planning Team and the Judging Team will not finalize the mileage classes until after the majority of DeLoreans are registered, most likely by end of June or early July.

Depending upon number of DeLoreans registered, the mileage classes may be sub-divided into Stock, Mild Custom, Radical Custom and BTTF Replica. Examples would be as follows:

- Stock Class is defined as Stock appearing, with 3 or less visible upgrades and no limit to "non-visible" upgrades (such as new integrated full pump, Zilla products, new shocks, etc.)
- Mild Custom Class is defined as Stock appearing, but including mods like lowering springs, Stage I or II upgrades, exhaust upgrades, chromed wheels, upgraded stereos, etc.
- Radical Custom Class is defined as significant cosmetic and/or functional upgrades, such as engine and transmission swaps, wide-body modifications, larger size wheels, etc.
- BTTF Replica may be further divided into "permanent mods" and "easy reversible mods" (defined as being able to be fully reversed to stock appearance in less than one day)

All registered DeLoreans that attend DCS 2016 (judged or not) will receive several bonus items. (Some bonus items may be available for purchase if you do not bring your DeLorean)

Rich: Realizing time is running out, I went to register along with several of my DMA friends, but there are many questions we have as a group:

1. There is no details on refund or cancellation policy on the site (or a contact name for questions about this and other topics)
2. There is no detail on the regular vs discounted price for dinner. what am i saving vs paying more later?
3. No details on who is speaking on any specific night. I would have to invest a decent sum of money for my entire family to attend dinners, but not sure they have interest in some of the topics. I fear not booking a dinner and missing out, but also fear booking a dinner and not being able to cancel later if details don't suit my families interest

Hi Kevin (and others with similar questions or concerns),

Although I have no direct control over what and when things are posted to the DCS website, since I
just send the text from the DCS Planning Team to the powers that be (and it gets posted, when time)
I will try to provide you with some details regarding your questions and concerns, as well as relay
your questions and concerns to the DCS 2016 Planning Team, if they care to comment further.

Please keep in mind DCS 2016 will be the first event for the DeLorean Convention and Show, therefore
we will have more guidelines than policies for DCS 2016. In general, the guidelines for refunds will
follow this general pattern: Full Refunds for cancellations up through July 5th, with cancellations
after July 5th and before July 20th being refunded for all paid dinners, but not event registrations.
The small cost for event registration is used to cover convention supplies (such as badges, etc.) and
most of the convention badges will be printed shortly after the July 5th time-frame. If cancellation
is required after July 20th, a partial refund may be available, on a case by case basis, such as a
cancellation due to a medical emergency. Refunds will be processed by the DCS Team, as time permits.

As for Regular vs. Discounted pricing for dinners, this is something new for DCS that has been talked
about for years, but has been rejected in the past. The Discounted dinner pricing was implemented for
two reasons for DCS 2016: first, event registration was delayed for longer than anticipated, so for
those who patiently waited (then registered right away after registration opened), were rewarded with
lower prices, and second, previous DCS attendees asked about discounted pricing for early registration
and the DCS 2016 Planning Team agreed that early registration should be rewarded with lower pricing.
Ironically, agreement and implementation of the discounted pricing delayed much of early registration.
The amount "saved" is based on the amount of dinners selected in your registration. If you did a "Full"
registration (per adult), you would save about the amount needed to purchase a Raffle Car ticket, which
the DCS Planning Team hoped you will use to buy more Raffle Car tickets, which in turn, helps fund DCS.

As mentioned several times in the past, DCS 2016 will be different from many DCS events of the past,
with the primary difference being how most of the speakers will be doing their presentations. Most of
the VIP Guests will introduce themselves and talk a bit about their involvement with either the DeLorean
or Back to the Future (at dinners), then do full presentation(s) in the Break-Out Rooms on the following
days. This way, the captive dinner audience does not need to sit through long presentations they are
not interested in (and starting their own side conversations, distracting the speakers and other guests).

There will be Featured Guests and Featured Events on each of the evening dinners. As mentioned a few
months ago, within the General Schedule, Thursday will be more heavily focused on Back to the Future,
Friday will be more heavily focused on the History of the DeLorean, the man, the company and the car,
as well as employees who worked for JZD and DeLorean Company, while Saturday will have more focus on
the Car Show Awards and, a wrap-up and re-cap of the entire DeLorean Convention and Show. Details are
still being finalized, so a more detailed "dinner schedule" will be adjusted over the next several weeks.

The DCS Planning Team intends to have most of our VIP Guests confirmed by early June, with tentative
presentation dates and times assigned soon after. However, DCS 2016 reserves the right to change or
adjust the schedule, based upon VIP Guest cancellations or scheduling conflicts (as it has always been),
so nothing is "carved in stone" until an actual schedule occurs during the DeLorean Convention and Show.

The DCS Planning Team decided that we will not be making any major DCS announcements during EuroFest,
so once EuroFest is over, you can expect to see more announcements on recent VIP Guest confirmations.

I hope this answers and addresses the above questions and concerns.

Thanks,
Rich W. (for the DCS 2016 Planning Team)

The payments for DCS and the raffle are showing up on my card statement as DELOREANMIDWEST.COM....is everyone else experiencing that?

Since the initial posts regarding this topic were likely made on a 2015 DeLorean Raffle Car thread,
it's probably best just to re-clarify in this post rather than point to a year old post somewhere.

DeLorean Midwest Connection (www.DeLoreanMidwest.com) is the host DMC Club for DCS 2016.
In order to host a Raffle, a business entity must be established for several years, thus with the
creation of DeLorean Convention and Show last year, we needed the DMC Club and its account
to provide what we needed to help fundraise for DCS 2016.

Please note DeLorean Midwest Connection and www.DeLoreanMidwest.com existed well before
DMC Midwest (Crystal Lake, IL) and the two should not be confused as the same entity.

However, it may add to the confusion that DMC Midwest has been a big supporter of DCS 2016
and both the 2015 and 2016 DeLorean Raffle Cars, which the DCS Planning Team is thankful.

Hopefully, this post will clear up a few things for some, as well as confuse things for others.

The DCS Planning Team is pleased to announce ...

DCS 2016 Keynote Speaker -- Dr. Giancarlo Perini

Giancarlo Perini has had nearly 50 years experience in the automotive industry. Although his
resume is quite extensive, we have highlighted only a few of his DeLorean-related credentials.

A few of his DeLorean-related credentials are listed below:


Director Marketing and Communication -- Italdesign Giugiaro 1970 - 1974

Giancarlo joined the company shortly after it was established and worked shoulder to shoulder
with Maestro Giugiaro. Acted as public relation executive, business promoter, project manager
(Lotus Esprit), strategic support (show cars and promotion of new projects), inspired concept
for The New York Taxi project (and successfully created from white page) and managed the
Industrial Design division, which today is Giugiaro Design. Managed exhibits at several
different motor shows during his tenure. Created and edited press releases, as needed.


Design Consultant -- DeLorean Motor Company 1974 - 1980

Consultant to John Z. DeLorean on design options. Helped select designer for DeLorean DMC-12
and supporting research on other projects, including the selection of the factory location.
Worked on the factory site studies for Puerto Rico (for micro-SUV) and Ireland for the DMC-12.
Study for the acquisition of Automobili Lamborghini (under Chapter 11 status) in late 1970's.

Note: Giancarlo is fluent in English and Italian (reading, writing and speaking), so he was often
the primary liaison between JZD and Giugiaro during the early years of the DeLorean project.


Giancarlo has quite a few stories to share with DCS 2016 attendees, so make sure you register
for the Friday Evening Dinner, for your one-time opportunity to hear Giancarlo Perini's stories.

With plenty of "scores" for DCS 2016, we have had a few "misses", so I thought I would mention
a few people who will not be attending DCS 2016 ... and its not due to a lack of trying.

Below is a list of a few of the BTTF VIP Guests that were invited, but do not plan to attend:


Tom L. Wilson - unable to coordinate DCS appearance with his comedy act

After a successful TV skit with the DCS 2015 Raffle Car (in Fall of 2105, at Wrigley Field), we
thought we had a 'lock' on having Tom appear at DCS 2016 in tandem with him doing his comedy act.
Discussions with the Springfield area comedy club stalled and we attempted several other creative
options to try to make this happen, until our options were exhausted. We may see him in the future.


Michael Lantieri - scheduling conflict with a family event

Michael and his wife Mary Anne will not be able to attend DCS 2016, but they look forward to being
invited to a future DCS Event. Michael won an Academy Award for Special Effects for Jurrasic Park
and was the Special Effects Supervisor for BTTF II and Mechanical Effects Supervisor for BTTF III.
Michael's wife Mary Anne was Bob Gale's assistant for both BTTF II and BTTF III.


Maybe an outside chance ... Christopher Lloyd will be in Chicago through July 22

Although we are still holding out hope that Christopher Lloyd will make an appearance at DCS 2016,
his July schedule is quite busy, with appearances in NY the weekend before DCS 2016 and appearances
through July 22 in Chicago, so it will be a "wait and see" if Christopher Lloyd will have the desire
and energy to make the trip from Chicago to Springfield, IL on July 23, to make an appearance at DCS.


We do have a few more surprises that will be announced soon ... more details to follow.

Update ...

The good news is that we have not had any cancellations for the confirmed VIP Guests for DCS 2016,
but we do have a few more people who have confirmed they cannot fit DCS 2016 in their schedules.

Below are a few more VIP Guests that were invited, but cannot attend, due to work conflicts:


Manson Cheung - Hot Wheels 3D Modeler and Designer - conflict with work (at Comic Con San Diego)

Unfortunately, Manson will be unable to attend DCS 2016 due to a conflict with his work schedule,
which happens to include an appearance at Comic Con San Diego. We had been hoping Manson could
attend at least one day, to give us an update on DeLorean Hot Wheels (and all things Hot Wheels).
He regrets missing DCS 2016, and we look forward to Manson joining us at a future DCS event.


Darlene Vogal - BTTF Cast Member - conflict with filming a movie through Thursday, July 21

Busy is good, but too busy always leads to some disappointment. While Darlene wanted to attend
DCS 2016, she is currently filming a movie which tentatively completes filming Thursday, July 21.
Filming schedules are often adjusted "on the fly" and as needed, so it was difficult to get a
confirmed commitment, when there was a chance that filming would be extended beyond July 21.


Donald Fullilove - BTTF Cast Member - conflict with work commitments through Thursday, July 21

Even with a few returning VIP Guests, it's never a "done deal" until the deal is done. We tried
meshing the DCS schedule with Don's schedule, including getting him flights with extra leg room
(for those who have met Don in person, he is very tall and has very long legs), but with his work
commitments, we could not get him to DCS in time to attend most of our scheduled BTTF events.


Although we had a few negative RSVP's, we have a great collection of "new" VIPs for DCS 2016.

We hope to see many of you next month.


Thanks,

DCS 2016 Planning Team
