Frequently Asked Questions

How are the exhibitors picked for the hall? 
Dealers are screened for initial policy compliance, and then placed first-come, first serve. A space is not guaranteed for a dealer until it has been paid for, and another dealer may take your space if you do not pay or respond to the granting email within 7 days.
Artists are screened for initial policy compliance, then juried in order to bring variance and selection to the hall. The panel of jurors includes Con-Jikan staff and local mentors with connection to the anime and fandom community in Albuquerque. Our jury grades on quality, relevance, and creativity. Any artist who applied and passed our screening will be added to the waitlist in the instance of another artist dropping their spot. A space is not guaranteed for an artist until it has been paid for, and another artist may take your space if you do not pay or respond to the granting email within the time period stated.

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 OPEN!  Click Below.

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.
