What's included with my purchase?

GCC X M2X will be an all-inclusive event, and we take great pride in this. Most activities, such as our game rooms and celebrity autograph sessions, are available to attendees at no additional charge.

We also have a handful supplemental activities such as gaming tournaments and charity fund-raising activities, which do require a small additional fee to participate; however, we do not take an additional profit from these events.

What special guests of honor can I expect to see at the Media Expo?
Will there be an extra charge to meet them?

You can expect some of your favorite actors, artists, internet personalities, authors, musicians, and much more at the event. A few fan favorites from our other events may also attend.
