Panel Event Application Form  

If you want to run a panel at Station-Unity 2022, then you must submit an application in order to be considered.  The following rules apply to the panel event application process:  

  • The application form must be filled out completely with legal names (first and last name) for ALL panelists anticipated to run the panel or event.  These names are used for the panel registration process.  Anyone who is not named in the application may not be able to qualify for the Panelist Badge.    
  • A maximum of two (2) badges per accepted panel will be awarded. This is to the Lead Panelist and one other. If any more badges are required then those must be purchased separately.  The Applicant is the person submitting the application and is considered the Lead Panelist.  A valid email address is required for the Lead Panelist.  They will receive a confirmation notice within seven (7) days after the application has been received.    
  • The Lead Panelist will be the only point of contact for the panel.   It is the Lead Panelist’s responsibility to share information with the entire group.  The Lead Panelist should always be in contact with all others presenting or assisting with the panel.      
  • One application is for one panel, if you want to apply for multiple panels then you must submit a separate application form for each panel.     
  • Contact Live Programming to request any changes or updates after the application has been submitted.   
  • All panel event applications must be submitted by June 15, 2022 by 11:59pm EDT.  Late submissions will be handled and reviewed on a case-by-case basis. 

General Rules for Panels  

  • Food in Panels  
    Please Note that food is NOT allowed to be served to attendees.  If a panel includes a food demonstration it would be limited to live preparation of food.  The Attendees cannot sample food. Food is ONLY for demonstration purposes to comply with hotel rules and regulations.  NO chemicals of any kind will be permitted.   
  •  Changes in dates and times for scheduled panels  
    Dates and times are subject to change, up until the convention.  If a panel is accepted, Live Programming may provide a tentative date and time, however we strongly suggest looking at the schedule in Guidebook once it goes live.
