Here at Capital City Comic Con we strive to deliver a diverse schedule that is full of creative content. We always want to make sure our attendees convention experience is unforgettable and unique! With over 2,000 minutes, our programming is a BIG part in that!

If you are interested in applying to host a panel or activity read over the information listed here and then complete our application in full by providing as much detailed information as possible. Submitting this form does not guarantee you a spot as a panelist. It is meant solely as a programming request.

  • Complimentary weekend badges are given to panelists who don't already have another type of badge (Exhibitor, Attraction, etc.) with up to four per panel, including the moderator. Please be aware we may need to limit the number of panelists and/or passes per panel. All complimentary passes are subject to approval.
  • Sorry - we aren't able to provide badges for plus ones and we don't pay for speaking fees, travel, lodging, or meals. If you are a professional panelist/programming coordinator looking to discuss being hired by CapCity please contact
