Con Etiquette

Con season is upon us and there are some things to know for newbie and vet attendees alike when it comes to making it an enjoyable event for everyone.

Con Survival Essentials:

Backpack Or Messenger Bag

Keep your hands free so that you can greet other attendees, carry food, or shop the vendors with ease. Fan purchases can become heavy as you walk around the convention floor.

Camera

Between the guest appearances and cosplayers in attendance, you will want to keep a charged camera (with memory card) handy to remember the fun times.

Phone/Battery Charger

There’s nothing more disappointing then waiting in line to meet someone and the camera or phone battery dying. Bring your phone charger or an additional fully charged battery for your electronic devices. Invest in a multiple-device charging pad.

Money… lots and lots of money

Seasoned attendees will tell you that the most important thing to carry is extra cash. A majority of the vendors only accept cash payments and the on location ATMs charge large withdrawal fees. Those additional dollars can quickly amount to the expense of purchasing a new autograph, custom sketch, or signed graphic novel.

Make Sure You’re Connected

Invest in a good WIFI provider or plan if you intend to share events in real time on your social media accounts or need to make calls. Many venues do not receive cell phone reception in specific areas, making a simple phone call, text, or Instagram post a rather frustrating experience. At the Javits Center in NYC, service for one computer connection can run around $29.95 a day or $69.95 for the entire weekend. Ouch.

Put your best face forward when meeting your icons.

Spending the day in a crowded, hectic space can be sweaty and exhausting. Don’t forget to wear comfortable shoes, bring a small hairbrush, and a packet of blotting tissues (for taking photos).

Stay energized

Before heading out, remember to pack healthy drinks and snacks (e.g., Power bars, pretzels, an apple or a sandwich) to tide you over between meals and prevent you from falling asleep during your panels. Extra bottles of water are your friend and can usually be refilled at one of the venue’s many drink fountains.

Extra Sharpies

An extra set of markers for autograph sessions and your networking card are additional must have items.
