Nice! I hope someone can upload photos to the forum. (^_^)
If anyone is going to live stream the J-NC panels, please link us here and even on /r/LightNovels. I wish Anime Expo did panel livestreams like some other conventions.
Bummed I’ll miss Yen and Seven Seas but I make most my money on the weekend and can’t afford to take it off. Still very very happy I’ll be there for JNC
@the-green-death hey If you see me say hello, I will be the Light novel fan at the J-Novel club panel..

I will be on the beach. Hopefully there's a Periscope or YouTube stream (live or no). =P
@aruseus493 I will be on the lookout for all things Arifureta though i don’t know what you could possibly be missing. as for the Live stream details it depends on connectivity in the panel, I will have a selfie stick ready for a livestream if possible.
Otherwise I will have a tripod stand for my iPad to record the whole thing.
@rahul-balaggan I know Sam got a pamphlet back at like Comiket 93 for Arifureta. He was also at the Overlap Festival which featured a lot of merch. Only thing I managed to get from that was a Yue B2 Wallscroll featuring her dressed as a waitress. (I'll take a picture later.)
Shouldn't Monogatari Art Exhibition be counted as well?

Sure, I'm up for adding anything you guys want to keep track of, especially if you have a link. =]
Do you know if this has more specific dates and times, or will the exhibit just be there the whole week?
Edit: Appears to be the whole week:
"Kodansha Comics/Vertical Comics Manga AX-travaganza
When? Saturday, July 7, 3:30 pm-4:30 pm
Where? LP3 (408AB)
Meet the people behind two of America’s top manga publishers: Kodansha Comics (Sailor Moon, Attack on Titan, The Ghost in the Shell) and Vertical Comics (Chi’s Sweet Home, Gundam: The Origin, the Monogatari Series). Stop by for the latest new manga announcements, free exclusives straight from Japan, and stories from pros all about your favorite manga and anime!"
There's not that much of details tho
Edit: Yuuki Kaji will be in Deadly Seven Sins panel but he's also MC of Zaregoto (and appeared in many other Kodansha/Vertical titles)...that's kinda amusing

I'm kind of trying to stick to light novel related stuff for the list in the OP. Do you think light novels may be announced at that event?
You can definitely share any events in the comments though, especially if they end up streaming / recording them. =]
@Terrence Oh the monogatari show looks cool! After not digging the first story too much I’m liking the second one way better and this exhibit should get me even more fired up.
Well, this is Vertical panel, they are sharing it with Kodansha people (or that's what their twitter account said)
Well, if they announce new novels, it will be at this panel since there's no other panel for Vertical inc.
This post is deleted!
I hope you guys find a way to stream this, I would love to to see it.
Seven Seas Tweeted:
..at our AnimeExpo panel next week, we'll reveal TEN MORE new licenses in a variety of genres! Fantasy, yuri, BL, monsters, and beyond. Light novel fans, you’ll DEFINITELY want to hear what we licensed. 😉 Be there to hear it live and win cool prizes!
Get hype light novel fans? O_o
