Do you want to participate and apply for a panel at GalaCon 2018? We are looking forward to your ideas!
GalaCon offers you the possibility to present your special talent to the public. No matter how famous you are or what experience you have – everyone gets a chance!
How to apply?
You can apply using this form.
Your application will then be reviewed by our event team. You will get an answer as soon as possible, but it might need some time to review and compare the many applications, so please understand that you will have to wait until you get a definite decision.
When you have successfully applied, the Event Team will review your application and compare your idea to others. We try to present a diverse and interesting set of panels to our visitors, so the reviewing might take some time.
Please note that this process may take some time because applications usually arrive gradually over a long time. We need a good stock of applications to make a considered decision.
In the meantime, we will keep you informed about the status on a regular basis.
If your idea was accepted, we will contact you to close the panel contract and discuss the last important details. When you´ve sent the contract back signed, you are officially a GalaCon Panelist and Contributor.
Your panel will be officially announced on our homepage, via Twitter and at Equestria Daily.
Before the convention, we will stay in contact to coordinate the position in the timetable and tell you everything you need to successfully hold your panel. You will also get a booklet – a kind of panelist convention guide – that contains all important information about your stay at GalaCon.
What to do at the convention?
As a contributor, you can use the fast lane for entry. A volunteer from the Event Team will await you at the reception or convention office to welcome you, guide you to the goodies pick up – yeah, there are goodies, more below – and show you where your panel room is.
You can also visit the room on Friday before the convention – this is highly recommended if you want to test any hardware, software or device.
Before your panel starts, you just go to your panel room and are guided by the volunteers who will help you set up your stuff and explain the equipment to you.
All panels are kept on video and photos are taken. You will be able to see your panel on our YouTube channel soon after the convention.
What do you get?
All accepted panelists receive a 50 € discount on our ticket prices. Additionally, you will be listed in the convention guide as a contributor and receive a special Contributor Ticket that identifies as a panelist throughout the convention.
We offer an additional voucher for one free meal at the convention restaurant.
Please understand that we cannot cover travel or accommodation costs.
