KNCA has decided to offer Panelist Perks this year! Please understand that this is a trail year, and that future perks may be handled differently in requirements/value/etc. This year, as thanks for hosting a panel at KNC we will be offering a complimentary badge to the Panel Host of a panel that is at least 1 hour in length.

  • If you are concerned about your panel being accepted and being able to purchase a KNC badge at our lower pre-reg price, have no fear! Any panelist that has purchased pre-reg will be refunded once their panel has been accepted.
  • Panelists can also pick up their badges in our new Specialty Badge area and avoid the normal badge lines at KNC.
  • Please be aware that if an accepted panelist cancels/no shows their panel and has already received their badge, they will be blacklisted and unable to submit panels to KNC for at least two years.


We are excited for this change to offer Panelist Perks, and want to offer our sincerest appreciation to the panelists that have and continue to offer their content and time.
