Faq

When are the signing sessions with special guests scheduled?

Unless otherwise stated on our Guests page, the schedules for autograph sessions are both morning and afternoon.

Have all guests been confirmed?

Yes, we’re proud to tell you that all guests have confirmed.

How much do guests charge for autographs?

Guests set their own prices. The majority of guests charge for autographs.

I can’t make it to the show – can you get autographs for me?

We do not retrieve autographs for fans, nor do we run an autograph-service. If you really want an autograph, you might want to ask someone that will attend the Antwerp Convention.

I would like to distribute flyers how can I help?

Please send an email to info@antwerpconvention.be and tell us your home address so we can send you promotional material to distribute.

Can I get a poster?

Like every year on the day of the Antwerp Convention there will be free of charge posters available at the bar.

Where can I park my car?

The Antwerp Convention offers parking space in front of the Antwerp Expo buildings. You can also park in the immediate neighbourhood of the Antwerp Convention. On Sunday you won’t need to use the parking meters if you park in the street.

How can I reach the Antwerp Convention by train?

Please visit http://www.belgianrail.be/nl to see the train schedules for Antwerpen.

Can I do other work for the Antwerp Convention besides distributing posters?

Feel free to send us a message at info@antwerpconvention.be

Are animals allowed?

Due to safety regulations (and some complaints) we’re not able to allow animals inside the Antwerp Convention. We strongly believe that a convention is not the ideal environment to walk with dogs, cats or the occasional Tribble.

Can I suggest guests?

Yes, feel free to post the suggestions on our facebook page or by filling in the contact sheet.

I’m working on a project; can you get me in touch with one of your guests?

Antwerp Convention cannot, and will not, give out any private information about any of our guests

Can I bring a camera or video camera?

Camera's and video equipment are allowed. However, should we receive complaints from the guests, you may be asked to stop filming. Keep in mind that the show attracts a lot of people. Keep personal items on your person.

Can we take pictures of the guests?

Most guests have no objections to get their picture taken, but please be polite and ask for permission first.

Are some guests bringing their own photographs?

Photographs of the guests will be available for autograph sessions, if you like you can also bring in your own material to be signed (DVD’s, photographs, posters,...).

What do guests charge for an autograph?

Most of the guests charge for an autograph. The prices are up to them to decide, all prices are stated clearly at the guest’s table. In case of sketches and drawings, the artists decide how their sketches are handled.

Is there a discount for cosplayers?

No, there isn’t.

I’ve sent you an e-mail yesterday, but failed to receive a reply.
