FAQ for Invited Entertainment
Invited Entertainment is a class of performance-giver specifically invited to our conventions for the benefit of our attendee's enjoyment. Under this program may be:
- Local musical acts or bands.
- Local cosplayers or panelists.
- Recognized community members presenting events or doing panels.
- Cultural organizations doing exhibitions on Ikebana, Taiko Drumming, Etc.
The goal of our invited entertainment program is as follows:
- Help promote local individuals who have talented entertainment skills.
- Encourage connection with the local community and organizations.
- Provide additional entertainment for our congoers.
Drinking: Invited Entertainers should hold themselves to higher standard than regular congoers and conduct themselves with professionalism at all times, not appearing at events and activities drunk or impaired.
Green Room / Industry Lounge: Invited Entertainers are not "Guests" and should not call themselves a "Guest" of the convention. Invited Entertainers do not receive access to any "Guest Green Room" or area privately designated for our Guests. However, if the convention features an "Industry Lounge", invited entertainers are welcome to visit the "Industry Lounge".
Contracts: Typically Invited Entertainment may not receive appearance contracts and deals are negotiated only verbally, however certain expectations, rules, and obligations still apply.
Liability: You agree to our standard convention rules and responsibilities, and you agree to hold harmless and indemnify the convention and its staff and organizers against any loss related to your participation in the event.
Reimbursement: No reimbursement for any expense is payable unless it has been agreed upon in writing, either via a contract or via an email.
Cancellation: Either party may cancel at their convenience with no penalty to the other, except the event may withhold future invitations in the event of cancellation by the performer, at the event's sole discretion.
