Dragon Con takes place in five hotels, but we are only in three of them. Come with me on a journey through the pocket program maps as I highlight where you can find the Video Gaming track in 2014…
Most of our programming will be in the Hilton, either in Grand Salon D or Grand Salon E. We will also be making use of the Grand Ballroom East and West for some events. But we also have a few things going on in the Marriott and the Sheraton.
In the Hilton, you’ll find us on the second floor, either by coming up the escalators/elevators or by crossing the bridge from the Marriott. Now, based on attendance to the Video Game panels last year a lot of you didn’t have trouble finding Salon D, but just in case – if you look at the map you’ll see a long thin room above the Salon E, this is actually used as a hallway that you’ll need to travel down to get to Salon D (and C and B). Only Salons A and E have doors that spill out into the escalator area. Across the way you’ll see the East and West Ballrooms, the central corridor is used for staging and lines for bigger events.
The party, The Heroes & Villains Ball, as always is over in the Sheraton. It’s there because it’s the biggest room they can give to us for containing all you crazy people. It’s on the second floor, that’s up 1 from the lobby and up 2 from registration. The Ball is on Saturday at 10pm and runs until 2am.
Friday night from 8:30pm to 12:30am, the Darkmoon Faire will take over the smaller half of the Imperial Ballroom in the Marriott on the Marquis level (that’s the M button in the elevator, though unless you are staying in the Marriott you should probably take the stairs). We’ll be back in the Imperial on Saturday at 2:30pm for the Mass Effect Voice Actors panel. You don’t want to miss either of these events.
We will also be spending some time on the Atrium level of the Marriott in the A601-A602 rooms. Saturday we’ve got a few folks talking about the Rise of the Webseries in Entertainment at 5:30pm, and we return on Sunday at 10am to catch up with what the guys from the Guild have been doing since the Guild ended.
And that is where we will be for the 4 days of Dragon Con. Hope to see you there!
