Acronym stands for Guest Of Honor. GoHs can give a speech on a topic of their choice, and are put on panel discussions and other events, such as book autograph sessions. They have access to the restricted GreenRoom in case they need a break from their fans, and are assigned GoHLiaison's to look after their needs. PenguiCon pays all expenses for a GoH and one companion, although occasionally the companion is also a GoH or NiftyGuest. See NiftyGuests for attendee celebrities in their own right who are not GoHs.
