When will Dick Van Dyke’s panel take place? TBA
Will there be a panel lottery? What is it? Yes, because of high demand, there will be a panel lottery. Entering the panel lottery gives attendees a chance to win one panel seating time per ticket in their Growtix account. No need to camp out or wait in long lines!
How many chances do I have to win? One chance per ticket on the order associated with the email address used to register. For example, if you bought 3 tickets, you will have 3 chances to win a seating time. You could potentially win 3 tickets / seating times.
Do I need to enter more than once? Nope, once will be sufficient. Entering more than once does not increase your chances and could possibly anger the lottery gods who will thereafter frown on your attempts to win things.
Does the Superfan package include seating to the Dick Van Dyke panel? No, the Superfan package does not include seating to the Dick Van Dyke panel. Please join the panel lottery.
Do passes won from contests give you another chance? Yes, they do. You get 1 entry per ticket in your GrowTix account, so passes that you won will count towards this total.
When will we be notified I won the panel lottery? Watch for a panel lottery email from Growtix on Thursday, September 6, 2018. This will include instructions on how to attend this panel event and your panel ticket aka a QR code. Bring the QR code with you.
I won the lottery. Is my seat guaranteed? We cannot guarantee any panel seating. Follow the directions received in your panel lottery email you received from Growtix. This will include a seating time. If you arrive at the Grand Ballroom on time, you should not have issues accessing the panel room.
I am late for my assigned panel lottery time, what should I do? Please join the overflow line.
I am a VIP ticket holder, how does the lottery affect me? All ticket holders, including VIP, will need to enter the lottery. If you received a panel lottery ticket, you will need to follow the instructions that come with it to get into the panel. If you do not, you will need to join the overflow line.
If I win can I bring my friend or family member with me? No, we cannot accommodate +1s. The panel lottery ticket is for one person only. Children under 2 years old can sit on parent’s laps. Children ages 2 through 8 years old will require a lottery ticket of their own. Parents can join extra children in the overflow line.
Will there be ADA accommodation for this panel? There is a page to request accommodations for ADA for all panels. Those accommodations will be provided if you win a ticket for the panel. Please wait to submit the accommodations request until you have received a ticket.
How does this apply to other guests of the convention since we don't have a traditional badge/pass (press, vendors, etc.)? The Dick Van Dyke Panel will not be available to Press or Exhibitor Pass holders. Those who received their badges through some means other than a GrowTix order are not eligible for the Dick Van Dyke panel lottery. Please join the overflow line.
I can't get my wristbands registered until Pre-Reg, will I miss out? The ability to enter the lottery does not depend on you having a wristband, but rather is linked to your GrowTix account. You may register for the lottery with the email address that is associated with your GrowTix ticket purchase.
What if I don’t purchase my ticket until the day of and not online? Can I still get into the panel? You are welcome to join the overflow line for an available seat after the lottery winners have been seated.
