Panel, Workshop & Special Guests Guidelines

  • Special guests are one of the main contents of AniManGaki events. We also put extra care into making sure their stay during our events and in Malaysia goes as smoothly as possible. We understand that it is exciting to meet them, but often the case is that we can only accommodate a certain number of requests, especially during meet-and-greet or autograph sessions.
  • So a pro tip is to get in line early, but most importantly, manage your expectations, because there is an off chance you may not get to enter these rooms due to high demand. 
  • Do not stall the queue. Do not jump the queue. You are not allowed to hold the queue for a group of friends. 
  • For autograph sessions, you may get your AniManGaki Event Booklet and relevant official merchandise signed by the guests. No bootleg or irrelevant item is allowed. You can only get ONE ITEM per person signed. Always check with the staff in the room before going up to the guest. No photo ops during autograph sessions, unless specified otherwise. 
  • Special guests have their own personal criteria, so understand that we will change certain policies according to their needs. 
  • No flash photography is allowed within the panel, workshop, or autograph rooms. 
  • No heckling or disruptive behaviour is allowed. If reported, you will be removed from the room.
