Title: The Itinerary
Post by: Richard on August 11, 2016, 08:55:53 AM
Here is the current itinerary.
Please note this is for reference only and is subject to change without notice.

Please be aware at certain points during the event you may need to choose between a panel and a photo op. The panels are repeated morning and afternoon to give everyone the chance to see and do both activities.

Anyone not listed as taking part in on-stage panels is due to be doing their photo ops that day unless otherwise indicated.

Some guests are unable to join us on the Friday. They will be doing their photo ops on Saturday and stage panel on Sunday morning.

The Sunday morning RDA auto session is in addition to the afternoon session, so if you do not get an auto in the morning, or don't wish to miss the panels, don't panic!

Posted below the daily summary sheets is the list of which guests are due to take part in which panel.

Yes not a problem, just have a word with whoever is on the door when you arrive. They will have access to a copy of the ticket holders' list.

Having a proper chance to look over the schedule, I noticed and appreciate the fact that some panels are repeated twice a day to give everyone a chance to attend. Photo sessions are in the morning and some may miss out on a few panels because of this, but the kind folks at Gatecon have arranged the schedule so perfectly that no panel will be missed. Kudos to everyone. :)

Updated version now posted above - the afternoon photo sessions were missing from Friday and Saturday (but the same still applies to Brenda's comment that half the attendees will do photo ops in the morning and half will be called in the afternoon giving everyone the chance to see the on-stage panels)

I love the duplicate panels.  This will give us a better chance to make sure we get to hear all of our favorites and still attend the autograph and photo sessions.

It's a different approach to our previous events where it has been panels OR photos not both at once, so with luck this will mean less lining up for people and give those not doing their ops plenty to see on stage.

Hello! Thanks for all you have done to plan this event. My last Gatecon was great, and I'm sure this one will be too.

Our group is trying to plan some sightseening activities on Friday. Is there any information on which celebrities will be doing photo ops when? I'd love to have an idea.

Thanks!

Usually, whomever is scheduled there on that day will do photo ops when they're not doing panels.

Not so much the case this time. Normally those who aren't down for that days' panels will be doing photo ops instead (as the op run all day while panels are taking place).

Unfortunately we are unable to give exact timings for every guests ops - will depend on the demand on the day.

Oh, my!  This thing is about to start happening isn't it?  So many months of planning and anticipation and still, it takes me by surprise!

Quick question - Is the Crew Briefing on Thursday evening the meeting for the Volunteers?  Or is the Volunteer meeting some other time?
Thanks,
Title: Re: The Itinerary
Post by: Richard on August 31, 2016, 06:25:36 AM
Yes the Crew briefing is for the volunteers.

See what we are doing there, sneakily changing the name from volunteers to crew to reflect what will be written on the t-shirts:)

Apologies if the replies are a tad slow for the next day or two but the time has come. Packing done, house tidy (ish), mum delivered to my other sister and the countdown to the journey begins.

See you all in Vangroovy!

Hello all, I'm very excited that the time has finally arrived. My question is since I'm attending both Gatecon and going to Chicago to meet Michael Shanks two weeks later I had to cut my Vancouver trip short. I won't arrive until Saturday afternoon. Will I have a problem collecting my registration packet and my Sunday Mediatation class ticket?

Thanks,

Tabitha

Registration will be open in the morning in the usual location.  (Wherever 'usual' is this year.)  Then it'll likely move to the Dealers' room once panels begin.  So - yes, you should be able to get all of your goodies.
