Panelists and Superfan-Rooms

Panelist Information

Want to express your fandom?  Want to get free ticket to Con-Jikan?  Want to express your fandom AND get a free ticket to Con-Jikan??  Than panels may be the answer you’ve been looking for!

Fan panels are a cornerstone of any anime convention.  And Con-Jikan can’t do it alone, nor would we want to.  Fan panels are the best because it allows our whole community to have a voice in- and influence on Con-Jikan!

Historically, our fan panels fall under 2 categories: Presentation and Workshop/Gaming.  Presentations are done by one or more panelists who will relay something (typically commentary, context and/or humor) to their audience.  Workshop/Gaming panels are more meant to involve their audience in a structured group activity.

If you think you’d like to try your hand at hosting a panel this year, please fill out the application below.  The application itself has more details needed for prospective panelists.

Panel applications ARE NOW CLOSED!  Thank you for your submissions!

Superfan-Rooms!

A long time tradition of east coast conventions has made its way to Con-Jikan!

Superfan rooms are a great way to share your enthusiasm for [INSERT YOUR FANDOM HERE].

Your friends, club, or other organization may reserve a room to throw a party for all Con-Jikan attendees. These rooms may be themed and decorated in whatever way you like. Hosts will be expected to provide some sort of entertainment (games, movies, etc) and light refreshments (tea, lemonade, cookies, etc).

For further details on Con-Jikan’s superfan room program, read HERE. You can also refer to these blog posts here and here by Con-Jikan staffer Erica for more context and inspiration!

Do note: Con-Jikan will help by sponsoring HALF of the hotel room cost, but hosts will be required to pay the remaining cost, as well as any costs for decoration, entertainment, etc.  And Con-Jikan will not provide volunteers/staff for these rooms.

Please contact paul.franklin@con-jikan or erica.franklin@con-jikan.com with any questions.
