Definitions for a hybrid convention

We are a fully hybrid convention! This means there are panels that will be in person only, virtual only and a select number of panels and other events that are hybrid. For hybrid panels, there will be panelists participating via zoom and panelists who will be in person. The moderator for all hybrid panels will be in-person in order to make sure the virtual participants get equal speaking time.

Programming types:

  • Reading: In-person reading 
  • In-Person: In-person panel (will not be broadcast to the virtual programme)
  • Virtual: Panels that are exclusively virtual. They will be broadcast at the in person convention when no other in person session conflicts.
  • Hybrid: Hybrid panels will have both in person and virtual panelists. The moderator will be an in person individual.

"Viewing room"

We may or may not have a viewing room available. This would be a room on-site, where physically present attendees can watch a virtual panel, but not interact with it.

Accessing the Virtual Programme

All membership types except one day memberships have access to our virtual programme. A virtual programme item may or may not be recorded; those that are recorded will be avilable for viewing to any with a virtual membership until November 30,2021.
