Here at Vitamin H, the most common question we get is:
"Why on EARTH WOULD I PAY FOR PANELISTS WHEN I GET DOZENS OF APPLICATIONS TO HOST PANELS FOR FREE?"
Believe us, we're fully aware that every convention gets inundated with requests to hold panels.
We're also fully aware that the vast majority of panel requests you get look something like this:
WHEN YOU APPROVE FREE PANELS, you get exactly what you pay for.
• Late Starts
• "I need a projector cable for my cell phone."
• "I have no idea how to plug in a microphone."
• Dull Powerpoints
• One person talking while four more, who only came for free badges, sit there and read Twitter on their phones.
Think about it. What's the #1 most common negative feedback you receive from your patrons?
"The panels all started late."
"The panels were boring."
"All the panels I wanted to go to got cancelled."
"Not enough panels."
"Too many common fandom panels."
"Not enough Japanese-themed panels."
"SO WHAT CAN VITAMIN H DO FOR MY CONVENTION?"
YEARS OF CONVENTION EXPERIENCE
We know exactly how hard it is to run a con, and we do everything we can not to make it any harder. We pride ourselves on being impeccably professional and able to handle most technical setups ourselves. We even bring our own cables and adapters.
QUALITY AND DIVERSITY OF PROGRAMMING
Vitamin H strives to present content that is professional, visually appealing, and educationally stimulating. No monotone delivery or bland Comic Sans PowerPoints here. And since we don’t limit ourselves to the current “major” fandoms, Vitamin H provides panels on subjects that aren’t normally seen at conventions, giving your attendees a unique experience.
0% CANCELLATION RATE
If Vitamin H says we’re going to be there, we will be. Seriously. There've even been a few times we've had tires blow out and had to walk or bus back to the con. That's how dedicated we are to making sure YOUR congoers are entertained.
Nothing is worse than having a panelist no-show and leaving those rooms you’ve paid good money for empty and unused. Vitamin H will remain on-call during the entire convention, ready to step in at a moment’s notice and present one of our panels in the event of any no-shows or last-minute cancellations. One time, an ice storm hit and we ended up being the ONLY guest still there on Sunday. We went into a panel room and improvised 6 straight hours of programming.
Opening Ceremony VIDEO
Every Vitamin H guest appearance comes with the complimentary production of an AMV announcing your guests for your Opening Ceremonies! Click here for examples of what we can do.
GRAPHIC AND LOGO DESIGN
Need a logo? A t-shirt design? A map? A PowerPoint? We're pretty good at whipping up what you need. We also tend to throw in this kind of stuff for free (unless it's an inordinate amount of work or something that you're going to be selling),
Want your con to be part of something truly special? Vitamin H runs a nationwide, multi-convention Animated Music Video contest that we like to call AMV League. The winners of each convention's individual contests will be represented at the
AMV League National Championships for a shot at the title of Best AMV of the Year!

WE'LL EVEN WAIVE OUR APPEARANCE FEE FOR ANY CON THAT
