What should I do if I have a special visitor?
Signings and picture opportunities will be held in a separate area of the exhibition hall for media attendees. Check the website to see which days a media visitor will be present.
Online, attendees may request an autograph ticket or a picture opportunity with a media guest. Most photo ops are still available, with the exception of Brendan Fraser’s Saturday photo ops and signatures, which are sold out.
At a guest’s table, you may also buy autographs. Most visitors pay in cash. Instead of performing a photo op, you may be able to purchase a selfie with the visitor. Those choices are entirely up to the visitors.
At booths along Artist Alley, comic guests will be available to meet. Check the website to see when they’ll be available.
