What are panels?
Panels are smaller interactive events during the convention held between fans. These events can be DIY tutorials on cosplay, game shows, informationals, and much more. The main purpose of panels is to let CPAC attendees share their knowledge and connect with the other members of the community.
What are we looking for?
This year, we are open to any ideas as long as they fall under the rules! We very strongly encourage panels that contain a high level of interactivity with its audience. If you wish to submit multiple ideas to test the waters, you are free to do so.
What are the rules?
Panels will be 50-90 minutes long (depending on the activity that the panelist(s) choose). Moderators have to be 18 years of age by the date of the convention and will be required to present an ID validating their age prior to their panel. This is a family friendly convention, so make sure your content abides by that. We will provide information on the rooms and available equipment to the best of our ability once that information is available.
