More than just your average panel, these are run by AVCON’s special guests. These panels can be a general discussion about the guest’s career or a workshop aimed at a particular skill, ranging from voice acting, animation, cosplay and game development. If you are interested in the guest/s why not sit in and enjoy the amazing tales of life experience or be a part of the end of panel Q&As.
Like a guest we have? Make sure you pop on down to the photography and signing area and get yourself something special. Both signatures from guests and photos are free, for a digital print of your photo on the day there is a small fee.
Signing for our special guests will be held in the public attractions area, giving you the chance to take home something memorable! Due to the popularity of guest signings, priority will be given to those who have pre purchased their AVCON ticket and signed up online.

Steven 'Bajo' O'Donnell and Stephanie 'Hex' Bendixsen
Hosts of ABC 2's, Good Game
Stephanie ‘Hex’ Bendixsen is one of the cogs that keeps Good Game whirring by writing and presenting Good Game’s awesome content. She also writes for Good Game: Spawn Point and Good Game: Pocket Edition. Passionately involved in all aspects of nerd culture, she enjoys science fiction, fantasy, collecting swords and figurines – even occasionally slinging arrows at her local archery club. She is also a dedicated servant to her two feline overlords: Gandalf and Merlin.
Steven ‘Bajo’ O’Donnell joined Good Game in 2007, and hosts ‘Good Game’ and ‘Good Game Spawn point’. He is a massive fan of e-bicycles, scooters, cosmology and thinking about the vast emptiness of space (which can cause oneself to feel insignificant but actually means we are more significant because we are the universe coming to know itself), cats and talking endlessly about how much he loves video game graphics.
Gus “Goose” Ronald
Good Game Field Reporter
Gus “Goose” Ronald gets all the latest information as Good Games field reporter. He has been a gamer his whole life and was a big fan of the show before coming on board. He described his job saying, “I do all the stories that are NOT in the studio. While Bajo and Hex prepare and present all the reviews and news, they send me out to do the topical stories out on location. His hosting role has since evolved, doing numerous segments and occasional reviews, and as of 2014 is the newsreader for both Good Game and Good Game: Spawn Point.
