Yay, one of my panels got accepted! :D

Quick question about the badges:

This is my first time paneling at Anime Boston. Other cons I've presented at issued me a unique panelist badge, whereas the AB FAQ discusses "badge reimbursement". So it sounds like I should buy a normal badge through the website and then expect to be reimbursed for the cost later?

Just wanted to double check because at the last con where I presented, I ended up with an extra badge and it was a mess.

Can't wait for March!

Correct, you have to buy a 2018 Anime Boston badge. Just make sure you check in to prog-ops on 200 so we can confirm your address and your badge number in order to receive the reimbursement after the convention. :)

I would like to add that last year was the first year they gave us an extra sticker for the badge for panelists, to help with lines. I believe they were applied to the badges after pickup. It is quite useful for getting back into the main building if you happen to get stuck in a large line.

Though I suppose I'll take this time to ask if this system will return for 2018?

Yes, the fast track for panelists is something I want to bring back. We are working on the details of that now so I cannot confirm or deny that it is happening this year yet. But you'll still get a bag of goodies when you check in! :)
