WALK OF FAME

Am I guaranteed an autograph when I queue up at the Walk of Fame?

The STGCC Team does not and cannot guarantee that you will receive an autograph from any particular guest. Whether fans receive an autograph depends on how quickly the line moves during the allotted time.

Do I need a ticket in order to access the Walk of Fame?

All fans who have bought a STGCC ticket (be it a 2-day or 1-day pass) can access the Walk of Fame (WOF) autograph sessions on a complimentary basis. For fans with 1-day pass, you can only access the WOF on the same day you enter.

When will autograph sessions start?

The schedule of the WOF Autograph Session timing schedules is as set out in all STGCC marketing channels (website, electronic direct mails, and posts on Facebook/Twitter among others).  While we endeavour to stick to the published schedule, please understand that schedules could change due to our guests’ schedules.

We encourage you to regularly check the WOF schedule online and onsite to avoid missing out on meeting your favourite guests. 

What should I bring for the STGCC guests to sign on?

In general, guests would be delighted to sign o any officially licensed and properly accredited products. They will, however, not sign on bootlegged/unlicensed merchandise or material that is not properly accredited. They may or may not choose to sign handmade, personal, or otherwise unusual items, according to their own discretion.

If you are uncertain about a particular item, do check first with the STGCC staff present at each WOF Autograph Session. The STGCC staff have the right to determine if an item is unsuitable for signing. Please understand that such decisions are final as the STGCC staff act on behalf of the organizers of the event.

Each guest is equipped with black markers to autograph items. You may wish to bring your own desired pen or marker to have them sign with.

How many items can I bring to be autographed?

Unless a specific limit is posted for a particular guest, assume that you are limited to maximum of TWO ITEMS PER PERSON per guest. The number of items may vary depending on the queue situation and this will be determined by the STGCC staff.

If you wish to have more items signed, please either re-queue at the back of the line or arrange to come back during the second slot (if any are available) for that particular guest.

To ensure a smooth and efficient process, please have the item ready for signing when you are within sight of each guest.

Can I ask the guest to draw a personalised sketch for me?

Do not request excessive personalization, sketches, etc. unless the guest agrees and the queue lines are manageable. The guest has the right to turn down any personalization requests.

Let’s be considerate to all the other con goers in the queue who share the same passion and interest to seek that guest’s autograph.

Can I take a photo with the guest?

Please ask for permission before taking photos or selfies with our guests. Unless the guests agree, please note that there will be no photo opportunities.

If the guests agree, please avoid using flash photography during the autograph sessions. Excessive exposure to camera flashes could be unpleasant to their eyes.

This guest is my favourite! I really want to spend more time with him/her!

Please be courteous. Do not jump queues or attempt to do so. Do not shove. Do not monopolize the guest’s time if there are others waiting. Assume that whatever you have to say must be said in 30 seconds or less, while the guest is signing your item. It may be good idea to write down what you want to say.

ACCESSIBILITY

Can I bring my pets?

We love your furry pals too, but implore you to leave your pets at home. The Marina Bay Sands will not allow animals – except for service animals – into the building.

I have a medical condition and need extra assistance at the event.

Please locate our staff nearest to you for assistance. You may also email us at info@singaporetgcc.com for guidance prior to the show.
