This page includes information regarding Panelist Badges and how to get a Panelist Badge for Katsucon if you’re running panels. 

If you are planning to run a panel or event at Katsucon 2018 and your panels are accepted, then you will qualify to receive a Panelist Badge for free. There is a maximum of four (4) panelists that qualify to receive a Panelist Badge. If your group is larger than four (4) then you need to contact Live Programming before submitting a panel event application. 

Panelist Registration Overview 
Panelists must have a Katsucon 2018 badge in order to run a panel for the convention. Once the Live Programming department confirms a panel is accepted, we will provide a direct registration link by email. Panelist Badges for 2018 are FREE but we still need all Panelists to register through Eventbrite. This registration will count as acceptance to run your panel for the convention. 

Once you arrive at the convention you will pick-up your badge at Panelist Registration.
