A Panelist does a workshop or discussion about a specific topic, sharing their particular geek love with other attendees. Generally they are paying members who do one panel and then participate as a regular con member for the rest of the weekend. Panelists should not be confused with performers or guests of honor who are guest of the con, due to invitation and greater participation in con events.
If you are interested in being a panelist, you will need to write up a proposal of what your panel will be about. Please include any relevant personal information and panel needs and email us at panels.
