Since this is a FREE EVENT, you do not keep your same seats you had during the day as the first few rows are removed. There will be seats in the back if you prefer to sit. If you have a VIP pass or special needs, please come to the front of the line.
NOTE: If you choose to stand in line early to be up front, you may only hold one additional place until the doors open. Once the doors open and if your companion is not there, there is no guarantee there will be room left in the front. Although these are FREE events and you do not need a convention pass to attend, please be aware that there is still a limited capacity at each venue. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis and space may be filled to capacity. If there are COVID-19-related restrictions at the time of the convention, we will not be removing seats. Should we need to keep seats in place, seating will open and on a first come, first served basis.

Giving Gifts to Celebrities
We know that many fans like to give gifts to our celebrity guests and we feel this is a lovely gesture. However, it's impossible to accommodate the large amounts of gifts and we do not have an adequate system to accept them at the many different venues. Please refrain from bringing gifts to the convention. 

Instead, we are offering the following addresses for fans to send gifts to the celebrities:
Attn: Ian Somerhalder or Paul Wesley
