Our Touhou panel (Welcome to Gensokyo) got kicked from it's space that I worked hard with the panel staff in March to get for us due to the large amount of people who did and wanted to attend last year.
3pm London Room on Saturday, we were happy and excited.
We then without notice got kicked to 11:45am on Saturday at the Dublin room in the DoubleTree, which is less than half the seating of the London room.
We got kicked for Brina Palencia to have a guest panel at that time.
While I understand that guests get priority, I wish Acen staff had contacted us about the change so that we could have worked something out instead of getting entirely shafted.
I work all year to make this panel new every year and I cannot put into words how upset it makes me to have this happen and the response from Acen be "Perhaps there was some miscommunication?"
Let me make it clear Acen, treat your panelists better before all your left with is half baked panels due to shafting the panelists who DO care about more than just the discounted badge.
I love Acen, it was my first convention ever. I'm upset though about this whole situation after working hard to schedule the panel and get it into a big room to lose it without any form of notification.
Me and my fellow panelists, not so sure we'll be coming back next year as a panel group.
