Vendors: ACADEMY FOYER
Photo Ops: SUNSET ROOM
Thanks for being with us! We really appreciate your visit and we want to make sure you have the absolute best time! With that in mind a few rules to keep everyone safe:
1) Photo taking from your seats only, do not rush the stage when guests appear.
2) PHOTO OPS are done on a first come/first taken basis. PLEASE be on time as they move very quickly and once over we cannot repeat. There is no special placement on the Photo Op line for any ticket holder, except Backstage VIPS who may go first or unless otherwise noted in schedule.
3) Please have your items for signature out and ready during autograph sessions. Personalizations are at the discretion of the celebrities signing and/or may be affected by guest flights and other scheduling issues. You must bring something to have signed, either something from home or a photo or souvenir from the convention.
4) Our volunteers are here to help you and we thank them for doing so. However if you have an issue with ANYONE or ANYTHING please let us know during the convention so we can solve the problem as it is happening. Speak to the tech booth and/or MC or registration.
5) Please sit ONLY in the seat you paid for.
6) At the request of our guests, ABSOLUTELY no video or audiotaping PLEASE!
7) Please turn cell phones off and kindly refrain from talking when a speaker or event is on stage.
8) PHOTO OPS may be picked up in the photo op room when available, but not during a photo op session so we don’t interrupt the photographer.
9) ONLY ONE QUESTION MAY BE ASKED TO A CELEBRITY BY A FAN. PLEASE NO PERSONAL STORIES ABOUT YOURSELF, ASKING FOR HUGS, OR TELLING THEM WHY YOU LOVE THEM (that’s why we’re all here!).?
10) During autographs we generally call row by row or by number.
If you have trouble standing let us know. If you are in wheelchair or scooter please go with your row or by your number.
THAT’S IT: HAVE FUN!
