When will a full schedule of events be live?
The full schedule of events is usually finalized about two weeks before the convention. We begin by placing the celebrities, then the fan panelists, and finally the Photo Ops. We usually have guest cancellations in the last month of a show, and this causes us to have to redo a lot of stuff, especially because we try to replace those guests too. We strive to keep the geek genres from overlapping sessions, and so we put a lot of time and energy into the schedule. For example, we wouldn’t put a Star Trek fan panel on at the same time William Shatner is on stage. With 600 unique event items, it’s a lot to juggle.
HOW DO YOU HANDLE CELEBRITY CANCELATIONS?
We do our best to avoid cancellations, however if they do occur we will fully refund any autograph and photo op tickets for that celebrity. We do not refund admission tickets when guests cancel. We hear all the time, “I was only coming for this one guest.” We’re not a one guest festival, and if you are really only coming for one guest, please understand in advance that your guest may cancel and that there is no refund on admission. We support the guests’ ability to take film gigs and further their careers beyond fan festivals.
We also strive to replace guests when they cancel with relevant alternatives.

We have arranged for special discounts at nearby hotels.
