So I'm getting ready for the first con I'm going to be tabling at. It's the Salt Lake Comic Con Fan Experience.

There's a lot of info out there that I've been reading to prepare me. But yet...

They just released the list of panels for the con, and as I go over the panels and events, all I can think is that I'm already wishing I was just a regular attendee so I could go to all these events; maybe even get some celebrity photos.

Bwa ha ha ha. Yeah, you've got to sit at your table for the whole con. Bwa ha ha ha. Twisted Evil

I don't know that I'd enjoy just boothing at a convention. It's much more fun to wander. Maybe you can find someone to sit in your spot and give you some breaks?

Find another webcomicker to share space with?
You each pay half the fee, and take turns manning the booth?

Sure, I'm going to have a freind of mine assisting me at my table, but even so how much time can I really spend away from it? There's 29 different panels I'd love to attend, plus other events, in addition to all the various other booths and attractions. This is a BIG con. I couldn't do it all as a regular attendee.

I never did find anyone to share the booth with me. No one accepted my open invitation, and the only fellow comickers I know well enough to directly ask don't have stuff to sell.

This is why I'm thankful my wife likes going to cons too - guaranteed table backup.

Sorry to hear it. Sad

...

I used to do children's programming at a music convention -- I missed everything else happening at the convention as a result.

So, I made sure I got to go to a different convention that I wasn't working, so that I had my chance to have fun and to meet and mix and all that.

That seemed to work better for me than trying to do con-running and con-attending at the same time.
