C2E2 is this weekend!

C2E2 - April 13-15, 2012
Tips and Tricks For C2E2
The Basics: Comfortable shoes. Hand sanitizer. Aspirin. Phone charger. Anything not covered here surely will be in our FAQ section.

Show Planner & Mobile: First thing you should do after you memorize the FAQs, is make sure you follow me on Twitter @LFensterman and the official show account @C2E2 then download the Official C2E2 Mobile App. It works on pretty much any device or platform and has all the info about Guests, Exhibitors, Artist Alley, Panels, Autographing Info, etc that you'll need for C2E2. Then use this handy Show Planner to create your own custom schedule for the con. It's fairly awesome.

McCormick Locale: Folks, this is a big building. In fact it's 4 big buildings. It's a damn campus. We keep messing with you because every year we have been in a different one. This year it's the NORTH BUILDING. You'll probably enter off of MLK Drive, walk in the main entrance, go up some escalators and the magic forest of C2E2 will be in your left. Check out the North Building Overview here.

Panels, Screenings & Autographing: The biggest Panels at C2E2 are happening in the IGN Theater, located in Room S100 on Level 1 of McCormick right after you come in the front doors. Check out the IGN Theater schedule here. The rest of the Panels & Screenings are happening up on Level 4. Be sure to check out the full schedule here so you don't miss what you wanna check out. If Autographs are what you're after, head over the to Autographing page for all those deets.

The Nerd Express: Last year a lot of you rode our free shuttle from The Loop so this year we are adding more stops at key L stations in The Loop. The shuttle is totally free and runs all day long all 3 days; the schedule is right here. Get on the Nerd Express! Also, the closest L stop is Cermak-Chinatown on the Red Line. It's a bit of a hike to McCormick, but the fresh air will do you good and the exercise will help stave off any con funk.

The CBR Bar: Once again our pals at CBR are laying claim to the coolest place in the show, the CBR Bar in the Hyatt attached to McCormick Place. Last year every night after the con the place was jammed with Fans, Creators, Publishers, Media and yes, the entire ReedPOP Staff lived there. Plus themed drinks, what's not to love. Details here.

Meet The ReedPOP Team: Wanna ask ReedPOP Staff a question? Make a suggestion? Lodge a complaint? Propose to marry me? Yes, for the first time a few of us will be on a stage working without a net or the aid of teleprompters. It's all going down Sunday at 3:45 PM in Room S402ab.

Three Floyds Pre Con Party: Make the trek out to IN for the Official C2E2
