We sent out panel times to all of you who submitted panels for this year’s convention, so check your email. The schedule is for the most part final as of now, and we will be announcing panel highlights over the coming weeks to whet your appetite.
For now, we will mention that we will have a dance party again this year, and this year its going to be a white party. This means that you should wear predominantly white to the party, because we’ll be playing around a lot with the color scheme of the lights all night. Costumes are still encouraged (white mage, anyone?) and you don’t have to be in ALL white, but effort to wear predominantly white is preferred.
Thank you to all our potential panelists, we have your submissions, and will be reviewing them over the next week or so as we start to compile a schedule. We should send out an email to everyone saying we got your panel soon, and when we have times finalized, we will follow up with an email detailing those as well. Once again, thank you for everyone who submitted panels for Ahn!Con 2014, this year is gonna be great!
We are very excited to be the first convention in KC to have special guest Peter Pixie as our Master of Ceremonies! Peter is a very energetic and enthusiastic host and we are thrilled to have him lending a hand for many of our events! Check out his bio and headshot on the guests page: http://ahn-con.com/guests/#Pixie
Thank you to everyone who has submitted an inquiry to be an artist or a vendor. We have received more inquiries than space available, and have disabled the inquiry submission form at this time. We are currently still working our way through inquiries and sending out contracts to fill the last remaining spaces. If you submitted an inquiry, you should be contacted by the end of the month with either a contract or a notice of your location on the waitlist.
For a list of confirmed artists and vendors, please see the Exhibitors Page here.
