Convention Tips

Want to have the best possible time at a convention. Here are some useful tips and a few links for you to read!

  • We suggest that you wear comfortable shoes; there will be lots of standing in queues for photo and auto sessions this is a convention after all.
  • Carry with you light snacks and bottles of water, it will get very hot in the main hall and various areas of the convention.
  • Don’t carry a bag full of junk, keep it in your hotel room, only bring what you need not the kitchen sink!
  • Know where everything is in the hotel.
  • Use the map and schedule we give you in the convention pack.
  • If you feel ill please see a member of the hotel staff for first aid.
  • Above all please listen to and take notice of any instructions given to you on the day.
  • Join our live twitter feed when at a convention to get regular updates.
  • In 2007 Wil Wheaton (Most famous for his role in Stand by Me and as Wesley Crusher from Star Trek TNG) posted this article on attending Conventions, be it as an attendee or as an attending guest. It’s a very good read and we strongly recommend it to everyone.  (Sorry this link is now dead, it was a very good article on convention etiquette if anyone knows of it please get in touch.)
  • In its place I found this on Convention Etiquette
