Gatecon Newb
« on: December 20, 2017, 10:06:18 AM »
Hello! I hope this post is allowed (if not I'm sorry!)

My husband and I were hoping to possibly make the trek out to Vancouver for our first-ever Gatecon! But we were wondering: what is the weekend like? What sort of events go down, are there panels? We don't really know what to expect. I thought I saw something about a location tour and saw pics for a cosplay contest(?).

Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated! :D

Hi Kirin,

The exact itinerary for 2018 will be decided nearer the time but as a guide previous events have consisted of the following:

Thursday - harbour cruise during the day, welcome party in the evening and registration running all day.
Friday - panels am, photos pm, banquet evening
Saturday - photos am, panels pm, charity auction evening
Sunday - panels am, autos pm
Monday - filming location bus tour

As I say it may not be the same on the same days for next year.

Absolutely Everybody’s at Gatecon

Any ideas on when the activities will begin to be planned? We are two months down now ;P
