Convention Tips & Advice
Is it your first con? Do you not know which day pass to get? Are the panels worth your time? Are some of these vendors stealing your money in exchange for merchandise you could get for half the price online?
Whether or not you've been to one of many fun conventions revolving around comic books or anime or talking horses, we've all had our fair share of inquiries in order to have a pleasant experience that is sure to make us talk to our friends and family to get them to go next year.
This service will provide you the general knowledge of how to have a proper convention experience regardless how many times you have attended cons. If you're a newbie to what you're attending, this will be especially beneficial.
I have noticed that aside from cosplays, there hasn't been a single service regarding conventions. I want to be able to share my knowledge, my experiences, and warnings for anyone and everyone so they can have as much of an entertaining time as I strive for.

Training & Qualifications
I have attended at least 1-2 conventions per year since 2012. I have also staffed once, so I can give advice in regards to staffing and how to treat staff.
Below is a list of cons I have attended:
Phatcon '14 (A miniature convention made by comic book retailer Phat Collectibles)
Comic Con '15 (Only for one day though, and that was through a connection. Can't give much info in this field regarding getting badges and what not.)
Anime Expo '16
Equestria LA '12, '13, '15, '17
Pacific Pony Con '15
HAHCon '17, '18, '19 (This is an online convention via a discord server where the panels were streams. I co-hosted for '17 and '18 over the pony comic books)
