Business Things:

Tell us what you need to Succeed

Let us know the questions you need answered. Let us know the things you want to do, and if you will need help on the ground making them happen.  Have questions about Disability Services? We can work with you. Is there something we haven’t addressed in an update or podcast that interests you? Something you can’t find on the website? Reach out; we respond promptly in most cases.  And, look…here are the appropriate contacts in the next section.

Best way to contact Media Relations


The website has moved!

Our new home on the web is: http://www.dragoncon.org/mediarelations

We are working to make sure that all links work after the migration, but if you find something that doesn’t work, send us an email at mediarelations@dragoncon.org.

Important dates

  • Registration Closes August 15
  • Guest interview requests Close August 20
  • You can continue to request an interview with the convention spokesperson up to August 29.

Can’t make it to Dragon Con?

If you are a reporter who was approved for media access but can’t make it to Dragon Con. Please let us know at Mediarelations@dragoncon.org.  You will be able to substitute a reporter if you notify us by August 24. You would not be able to substitute a reporter after that date, unless you are local Atlanta broadcast. 

Fun Things That are time sensitive:


Continue to follow Dragon Con Podcasts! This week’s podcast has been delayed a few days because of the website move, but we will have it out by the weekend, and another one by Monday!

But, that’s not what we are talking about. Instead we are talking about podcasting from Dragon Con Media Relations’ Room.

  • This year we will have Wifi, but only for reporters who have signed up for Podcast Space. We have a very limited number of IPs available, so please only use the Wifi when you are actively podcasting.
  • Sign up before August 29 with your preferred timeslots and you will be assigned a time for your podcast.
  • There will be ambient noise, but if your equipment and your settings are up to the task, this should not be a problem and will add to the “live feel.”
