This year we'll be open for Thursday through Sunday. Thursday will be a partial day JUST for people who are pre-registered! Even if you pre-register for only 1 day, you still receive Thursday as well. This is our way of letting you know that we appreciate you pre-registering and planning ahead.
Registration for the convention begins a half hour before events begin each day. In 2011, PortConMaine started this by popular demand and it worked really, really well. Events will not open until the convention officially starts, but registration will definitely continue to be open a half hour early each day.
Here's a tentative schedule. Events may change closer to the convention. Please keep in mind that everything here is pending the convention itself! Sometimes people don't show up. We can't promise panelists will attend- but we can promise most major events WILL happen (the cosplay is the cosplay, it WILL happen ^_^)
In 2010 we had a lot of at con cancellations; panelists not showing up, guests having problems arise, etc. If an event is cancelled we will do our best to mark the schedule, communicate the cancellation, and fill the time with another staff-planned event. We apologize for event cancellations and will continue to do our best at gathering guests and panelists that will not cancel unless absolutely necessary. Thank you for your understanding. In 2011, due to event submission changes, there was only one cancellation of an event from an attendee unable to attend the conference.
