  • During the show while celebrities are signing autographs, media should ask the celebrities’ handlers for interview opportunities. Some celebrities are open to interviews while they interact with fans, while others are not open to any on-site interviews. It’s on a strictly case-by-case basis. Please let the nearest celebrity row FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ volunteer know you would like to request an interview and ask them to point out the appropriate celebrity handler/agent to approach to get permission. If the volunteer has been given a directive by celebrity guest reps and handlers not to allow press to approach the table, this directive is final. Failure to respect these wishes may lead to loss of press credentials for this convention and possibly future conventions.

  • Media will have access to all public rooms
  • Media will be admitted into panels as general admission as long as room capacity allows. There will not be a designated press entrance for panels, so please make your plans accordingly.

We ask that you be courteous of attendees while taking video or photos and avoid standing in front of other fans that are in attendance. Individual celebrities and agents have the right to deny photos and video during panels. If a celebrity or agent makes this request a FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ volunteer or staff member will notify you on site. Failure to comply with these requests may result in a loss of press pass.
