This is the general area. For those of you who must use the blue line to come in, this shows how far from the hotel it is. It's about a 5-10 minute walk and rests directly in-between the Hyatt and the McDonald's. There are also other hotels in the immediate vicinity as well as a brand new venue with food and entertainment opening the weekend before ACen.

This is in front of the convention center entrance. Will be a rain backup. Warning: May smell of chlorine.

Please remember to be courteous wherever you are and make sure there is space and room for people to get through easily!

Update 2/11: We do not have the east indoor wall this year, the convention will be using it for other purposes.
Videos will be coming soon!
