LeakyCon 2013 Signing Procedures

Hey everyone: this is very important info that applies to every LeakyCon guest! The ONLY way to assure a safe and speedy signing procedure for everyone is below, and we are counting on your participation!

LeakyCon is one of very few conferences that offers autograph sessions at no additional cost; however, registration for LeakyCon does not guarantee you access to any autograph session. In an effort to eliminate waiting time and run the signings at LeakyCon 2013 more efficiently, we have borrowed a procedure from one of the only other conferences to offer free signatures, a large conference you may have heard of called Comic-Con.

Please note the following procedures only pertain to regular guests and most autograph events.  LeakyCon Lit signings are only open to those LeakyCon guests who have registered for Leaky Lit.  Wizard rock signings will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis.  If you are a RockStar, then you have a special plan in place, and the following only concerns you if you would like to enter the drawing for an additional signing pass.  

Access to all autograph sessions will be granted via drawings on Friday and Saturday mornings. Attendance at this drawing is the only way to assure your spot in the signing, unless you are a RockStar (see above).

Drawing Times:

Friday at 8:00 AM in the Exhibit Hall

  • 9:30 AM: Team StarKid – Clark Baxtresser, Jaime Lyn Beatty, Brian Holden, Lauren Lopez, Joey Richter, Dylan Saunders, Meredith Stepien, Joe Walker
  • 12:00 PM: Benedict Clarke, Ellie Darcey-Alden, Alfie Enoch, Rohan Gotobed, Robbie Jarvis, Evanna Lynch, Ryan Turner
  • 4:30 PM: Hank Green

Saturday at 8:00 AM in the Exhibit Hall

  • 11:00 AM: Scarlett Byrne, Benedict Clarke, Ellie Darcey-Alden, Rohan Gotobed, Robbie Jarvis, Evanna Lynch, Christopher Rankin, Ryan Turner
  • 1:00 PM: Hank Green

So here’s how it works:

Drawing Procedure

  1. Please line up in the Empire Room at the time listed above to enter the drawing for the signing pass you wish to have.  There will be multiple lines, each marked with the pass you may obtain.
  2. There will be a volunteer at the front of each line with a mystery bag of passes.
  3. When you reach the front of the line you will pull a pass out of the bag.
  4. You will either pull a winning or a non-winning pass.
  5. If you pull a winning pass, then you have gained access to that signing and should reconvene at the Exhibition Hall at the time of the signing.
  6. If you pull a non-winning pass, then put it back in the bag. You have not gained access to that signing and should try again the next day or you may return to the end of the line if you wish.

There will be enough passes in the bag to help assure that all of the signings are full and that no one waits in line unnecessarily.

All of the drawings for the day’s signings will take place at the same time. When you arrive for the drawing, you should choose the signing session you are most interested in and stand that line first. Once you have drawn a pass for that signing, you may stand in the other line, if you like. (For example, On Friday you could head to the Team StarKid line, draw a pass, and then join the HP Actors line for a chance at that signing.) This should be a very fast process so please don’t worry about not getting on the line you want!

Ok, so you have your pass... what next?

Signing Procedure

  1. If you won a pass at the morning lottery, please line up at the signing room at the allotted signing time. There is no need to line up early. Everyone who receives a pass will be granted access to the appropriate signing.  However, it is recommended that you line up closer to the beginning of the signing rather than closer to the end.  The signing will end at its appointed time, and we need to move things along - we know you’re ready to go to your next bit of programming, so we don’t want to hold you up!
  2. You may only have one item signed at each signing. You may not bring in items from your friends who didn’t get passes. One person - one item. This is the only way we can get things going with the speed they need to be respectful to everyone.
  3. After you get your items signed, please leave the signing area promptly.
  4. You may not take photographs or videos of yourself with our special guests, or engage in any other activity that will hold up the lines. If you do so, then your pass may be revoked.

Please remember that there will be a lot of LeakyCon guests at each signing. Respect your fellow fans - they are just as excited as you are!

We want to allow as many guests to attend each signing as possible, but in order to do so, we need your help. We need your patience, your calm, and your awesome attitude. Thank you so much for your cooperation!

Our signing procedure is adapted from the one used at Comic-Con, of which we at LeakyCon are big fans. If they can get through that many people fairly, we can work together to make it happen, too!
