2017 Fan Events Information

Welcome to the Fan Events Page!

With everything that goes on at FanimeCon, you may wonder a few things. For example, what exactly is a fan event? How does it differ from panels and other FanimeCon happenings? How can I join the Fan Events staff?

Hopefully, this page will provide you with all the information you need!

What are Fan Events?

What constitutes a fan event? The idea of Fan Events is for you (a.k.a. the fans) to be able to put on events that are not possible in FanimeCon’s Panel Rooms. You see, FanimeCon panels have a fixed layout. As many past FanimeCon-goers have seen, a Panel Room layout consists of chairs and tables on a stage, a screen for presentation viewing, and you, the audience, watching in your own set of chairs. This layout is fixed and cannot be altered.

The layout is great for when you go to see panelists, but it’s not so great for events that require more audience participation, movement, and activity. Don’t worry because this is where we, Fan Events, come in.

Fan Events are just that – fun events that require a different or more versatile space.

Perfect, right? We think so too.
