Spotlight on Seanan McGuire
This panel has traveled from Australia to Ireland, and now it's coming to San Diego Comic-Con! Part Q&A, part stand-up comedy, part serious discussion, the only way to know what will be said is to show up and ask questions. For this one-hour period, Seanan McGuire will answer anything you care to ask her (although, as a warning, the answers will rarely be as simple as might be expected). There may be prizes for particularly good questions, depending on how much room she has in her suitcase.

Is The Swag You're Giving Out Working
The one thing that every convention has in common, no matter how different their industries, is the kinds of promotional items being given out at each booth. Each company tries to make the best or most relevant items to promote their business. Everyone wants to have the right kind of promotional items that will resonate with their customers and influence them to purchase their brand or service. The War Machine Marketing panel is about finding out which items have worked in the past, which items haven't, which have been surprising, and which have been revolutionary. This panel is for exhibitors, new businesses, and customers alike, because each perspective is important.
