Activities and Extras

Panels

[Estimated Price Range: No charge, included in all passes]
 

Panels are Q&A activities where fans can interact directly with the guests and ask questions. It’s also an opportunity for guests to share anecdotes and memories about the show. Panels will include a mix of cast and crew members to give fans the ultimate opportunity to ask questions about what happened on both sides of the camera.  

Some panels may be moderated, which is comparable to an interview on stage.

It is expected that fans are respectful of guests’ comfort level and personal boundaries. Please refrain from asking personal questions or using disrespectful language towards any guest. All questions will be screened by event staff.

Panels may not be recorded in order to give the guests more freedom in their replies. The consequence of recording is removal from the convention and the recording must be deleted.

Photographs may be taken, but using a flash is forbidden.

Panels will be held in English and will not be translated.

All panels are included in all passes and there is no additional charge.
