Due to the growing attendance at Anime Expo and increased demand for autographs from Guests of Honor, we are expanding our autograph area and updating our policies. A quick summary of the changes are below:
- Autograph tickets will no longer be handed out at Guest of Honor panels
- Raffles for autograph vouchers will be discontinued
- Autograph Ticket Booth (to be located West Hall) will become one central location to distribute a limited number of autograph tickets
- No one may stand in line for an autograph without a ticket
- Standby lines will also require a ticket
- Premier Fans do not get front-of-line privileges for autograph ticket distribution or for autograph sessions
- Autograph Area moving to Kentia Hall
- Autograph Area expanding to allow for special guests (not Guests of Honor) to hold paid autograph sessions.
Things that are not changing:
- Guests of Honor will continue to hold autograph sessions at no extra charge to attendees.
