Live Programming

Program Types – Below is a description of each form of programming participation:

Panel – Any type of presentation or discussion on topics selected by the Panelist.

Workshop – Similar to a Panel except has a highlight on participation of audience. Workshops require that you provide material/tools as needed.- Tech is not available in this room, but a large monitor can be provided for any laptop presentations

Demo – Live demo such as a martial arts or weapons display. This may also accommodate dance or other type of class that requires a large open space. Demos will take place on the outdoor stage, with theater style seating.  Tech is limited to audio only (no projection equipment is available).

Live/Interactive Event– Similar to a Panel, but there is an added element of a live performance and/or audience participation.  You will be asked to give additional information on your proposed event, including any special tech requests.

Please note that any 18+ programming must be scheduled after 10PM and will require the room to be cleared after the previous panel so that we can ensure all attendees are over 18. (ID Check required) 

Badges (Memberships):

You will be eligible for up to a maximum of four (4) Full Weekend memberships per APPROVED programming item. You may have as many people on your programming item as you would like, but anyone over the initial four (4) MUST pay for a membership in order to be listed as a program participant.  ANYONE NOT LISTED ON THE ORIGINAL PANEL APPLICATION WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR A COMPLIMENTARY BADGE

If you have already purchased or otherwise obtained your membership for Anime Los Angeles 2018, you will not receive an additional membership. If you are Staff or are getting your membership for free (pass-on, prize, etc.) you will not receive an additional membership.

No transfers, roll-overs, pass-ons, or refunds will be given.


Parking is NOT covered as part of your programming item. You are responsible for ALL parking charges while attending Anime Los Angeles 2018

Time Slots:

Typical programming items run one hour. There will be a 15 minute break between each programming item for transition/tear-down/set-up of next item.

You may request more than one hour, but please be advised that we anticipate a LARGE number of programming requests. In order to accommodate as many as possible, and to ensure an even variety, we may need to limit programming requests over one hour.

Programming will run; Thursday from 4pm-1am,  Friday from 10:00 AM to 2:00 AM; Saturday 10 AM to 2:00 AM; and Sunday 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Note ALL TIMES are approximate and subject to change. Please be advised that if you select a time block option, you may in fact get scheduled for that time. This is especially important for late-night programming.


Most programming rooms will have a standard set-up including Projector, Screen, Sound System, Mics (excluding Live Demo Stage and the Workshop room). Laptop connections will be available for standard connections. If you have anything special, you will need to consult with Tech Dept. before your programming item. Please note that a special tech request is not a guarantee that you will receive it. Please check in with Programming Ops for any tech questions AT LEAST 1 hour before your programming item.

We do NOT have laptops available for use. You must provide your own.

Tech set-ups are based on room size and capacity. Larger rooms will get a larger screen, more/different mics, etc.

If you have ANY special tech requests beyond what is noted above, you must contact us in advance of the convention to determine if we will be able to meet your needs.


If your programming request is approved you will be asked to check in with Programming Check In a minimum of 30 minutes before each program item so we can confirm everything is set correctly, if you have any questions, need assistance locating the program room, etc.

We ask you check in with Programming Check In s before each of your program items (if more than one).
