A guest of honor (GoH; British English: guest of honour) is a person who is invited to attend a convention, and is listed publicly on convention fliers and other materials. The guest usually has their transportation and lodging costs picked up by the convention, and in turn agrees to participate in certain panels and/or events that are hosted by the convention. This often includes a lunch with pre-registered high-level sponsors.
