Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)
The cabaret is a new tradition where VCON attendees can come, relax, socialize, dance, and be entertained by.... more VCON attendees! All the classic dance tunes, plus your media favourites remixed into the ultimate fan favourites, liberally mixed with YOU! We’re open for improv comedy, skits, all manner of short acts throughout the night... if you have an idea, let us know. There will be a cash bar, so if the offerings at Hospitality are not quite what you’re looking for, there will be premium beer, wine and highballs at the Cabaret!
