Thank you for your interest in running an event at Glass City Con 7, happening July 15 - 16, 2017! In order to make sure we can accommodate your event, please read and complete the application. If you’re doing more than one event, you must fill out this form for each event.


If you are running an event at Glass City Con 7, you are responsible for ensuring that everyone attending your event has convention badges.


Glass City Con caters to attendees of all ages. It’s very important our event content is accurately rated. Please rate your event appropriately. Please note, All Ages events will be given priority for daytime programming, as GCC is a family friendly event. This does not apply to our late night hentai/adult programming.

Anyone can attend your event. Little to no objectionable content. May reference mild violence or death scenes, but nothing graphic. No sexual content or nudity. No swearing.

AGES 13+
Your audience will include teenagers. Depictions of violence and death are allowed, just not too extreme. No sexual content allowed. Language can be a little more relaxed, just watch the F-bombs.

AGES 16+
Your audience will be older teenagers. More severe depictions of violence and death are allowed. Depictions of nudity and sex are not allowed. Language is largely unrestricted, just keep it classy. if someone is blatantly under 16, please ask their age and ask them to leave if appropriate.

AGES 18+
Your audience will be adults, end of story. Content is ultimately unrestricted, but cannot be illegal in the state of Ohio. Be sure your content has a point and isn’t shocking for the sake of being shocking. Even though these panels are largely unrestricted, they should still be thoughtful and well-constructed. Glass City Con will be providing ID checks at the door. However, if someone that is blatantly underage slips past the ID checker, please ask them to leave or get security to remove them.


Please indicate the days and times you ABSOLUTELY CANNOT run an event. This does not guarantee you will be assigned specific times. Times will be announced before the event, so be prepared to present at those times.

When scheduling your event, please note the TEN MINUTES prior to your event is designated setup time, and you must end your event TEN MINUTES before the start of the next event. This allows the previous panel time to clear out and attendees to be seated. If you feel you won’t have enough time to run your panel with this buffer, schedule an extra half hour.
For example, if your hour-long event is scheduled to start at 2:00pm, please begin your setup at 1:50pm and finish your panel no later than 2:50pm.


It is very important you indicate everything you need for your event. Your room and time assignment may be based around available resources. If you don’t request it ahead of time, you may not get the resources you need. Conversely, if you don’t absolutely need it, please don’t request it. We welcome you to bring in your own resources.


If you are unable to run your event or need to change the time, please let us know as soon as possible! We understand emergencies happen, and will do our best to accommodate your needs. If you do not show up to your event within fifteen minutes of the event’s start time, the event will be cancelled and you may be barred from running future events.

If your event doesn't run due to lack of attendance, please wait FIFTEEN MINUTES before leaving the room. A member of our live events staff will check on you. If a staff member does not check on you, please report to Con Ops.


If you are coordinating an event, you will receive a free admission badge. Additional badges are granted based on the number of hours of programming you provide.

For a ONE hour event, two weekend badges will be provided.

For a TWO hour event, three weekend badges will be provided.

For a THREE hour event, four weekend badges will be provided.

Any additional badges must be approved by the Head of Live Events.
Please note: We expect panelists to pick the appropriate amount of time for their event based on content, and not make a "badge grab" for their friends. Live Events staff will be monitoring events for the quality of content to ensure only the best events are present at Glass City Con!
