SDCC Watch Day 3: Marriott Marquis Expansion and SDCC Implications
In yesterday’s SDCC post I mentioned the Marriott Marquis’ expansion, set to debut in June 2016.
You can read more about it here.
If you’re attending SDCC this year you’ll see the construction zone, which will no doubt impact traffic, as the site is butted up against the sidewalk.
With the amount of conference and meeting space being added, it’s natural to assume that there will be implications for SDCC. Currently the Marriott hosts gaming central, featuring RPGs and LARPs, along with the Con Suite.
Will this expansion aid SDCC by providing more space?
Only time will tell.
SDCC Watch: Day 2 (June 9th)
In case you haven’t noticed, lately I’ve been making a daily trek to the Gaslamp Quarter and Convention Center to keep an eye on SDCC preparations. It’s early, of course, but I figure why not do it when I’m so close to the action?
Here’s what I saw today. (The Cisco convention is still going, and the weather is muggy and warm with lots of muggy humidity)
No line yet at Hall H!
Construction underway at the Marriott Marquis. The renderings look amazing and this will provide a ton of new space for SDCC in 2016.
Keep watching for more SDCC prep sneak peeks!
