Events: Panels & Workshops

Welcome to ConnectiCon Panels & Workshops!



Thank you to everyone that made ConnectiCon 2014 an amazing convention! Your friendly Panels & Workshops staff are working hard planning ConnectiCon 2015!! Keep your eyes on our page for exciting announcements!

The Panels & Workshops Department is responsible for scheduling more than 300 hours of content in 13 rooms over 3 days! We work with Guest Relations to bring you the best possible Guest of Honor panels, including Featured Media Guests, Literary Guests, Gaming and Industry Guests and Online Media Guests(OMG)! But most of our programming is provided by you, the attendee! We could not be the convention that we are without attendee involvement.

This year we have adopted a ratings system to better help everyone enjoy their convention experience. We recommend that all attendees use their best judgement when attending an event they feel is appropriate content for themselves, friends, or children. All rated 'R' events require 18+ wristbands for attendance. Wristbands can be obtained from the Props Check table across from the Registration Desk.

Event Ratings: GA - General Audiences, P - Preteen, T - Teen, R - Mature Audiences, NR - Not Rated






Panels & Workshops FAQ:

How do I submit my idea for a panel or workshop?
Click on the 'Submit an Event' link under the Events tab at the top of this page. You must be logged in to your ConnectiCon account. The Panels & Workshops staff will review your submission and follow up with any questions.



When do panel and workshop submissions open?
Submissions for ConnectiCon 2015 are now Open! Submit here: http://connecticon.org/events/add/

I submitted an event but I don't know if it's been approved?
The Panels & Workshops staff received over 500 applications last year, so we ask for your patience and cooperation as we take the time to read and consider each and every attendee submitted event. This year we will be scheduling events on a rolling basis, as events are submitted. So don't wait to submit your event! Submissions close on March 30th of the convention year. All submissions will be processed by May 15th at the latest.



How will I know if my event is approved or rejected?
You will receive an automated email letting you know we have received your application. When your event is approved and scheduled, or if it is rejected, you will receive another email from the system. Submissions close on March 30th of the convention year. All submissions will be processed by May 15th at the latest.

My event is pending and the time of the event shows as 12:11 AM. What is this?
All event forms default to this time upon submission. If accepted, the actual time of your event will be shown in your confirmation email.



How do I reserve my seat in a panel or workshop?

Panels & Workshops are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. You can not reserve a seat for any panel or workshop. Once the room is at capacity the event is full. Panels & Workshops Staff will fill seats as they become vacant, but in order to comply with fire code we can not allow standing room in any of our events. For popular events that will fill quickly, plan your schedule accordingly!



Do I need anything to get into an 18+, or R rated, event?
We require a valid, government issued photo ID for all 18+ events. Acceptable forms of ID are: license, non-driver ID, passport, military ID. We will be distributing 18+ wristbands in order to manage event lines and fill the panel rooms more efficiently. To get your 18+ event wristband, stop by the Props Check table located across from the Registration Desk. The 18+ event wristband MUST go on your wrist. It can not be placed on an article of clothing, costume, your badge/lanyard, or prop. If your costume obscures or covers your face you will be asked to remove the item in order to receive your wristband. NO EXCEPTIONS CAN BE MADE TO THIS POLICY.
