Dear Panelist and Featured Guests

Dear Panelists and Featured Guests from Bent-Con 2013.

We  can’t think you enough for helping us make Bent-Con 2013 an amazing  show.

We just launched our 2014 Bent-Con website, and in it you’ll find the panel submission request form.

We hope you’ll join us for this year’s con.  If you add Bent-Con to your calendar, please let us know and we’ll add your name to our  2014 guest list.  This year, we are adding links to bio pages for our panelists and guests (as requested by attendees).  

You are welcome to start submitting panel requests at your convenience any time between now and October 15th.  If you have questions about panels or you are not sure you are comfortable organizing a panel, but would still like to be placed in a penal someone else is coordinating please let me know and I’ll keep your info.  When that time comes around, I’ll contact you with a list of our standing panels.

This year, I’d like to create blocks of panels and tracks for our guests.  If you are interesting in working towards creating a block of panels or joining other like panels to create a track, please let me know.

Furthermore, this year we are launching our Community Partner’s program, which allows groups/organizations/people to work a little closer with our staff to help create events, panels and an even better 2014 con.

Thank you again for your participation in Bent-Con 2013 and we look forward to you joining us again for Bent-Con 2014 for an even bigger and better show.

Have a lovely rest of your week and keep checking back for updates.

Michelle Lagos – Director of Programming and Talent Relations
