Happy ClexaCon everyone!! Today kicks off certain portions of the conventions, though the main convention floor won’t be opening until tomorrow. I wanted to share some of the events you can take part in today as you get ready for the next three days.
Starting at 9:30 this morning are the first ever Labs. The Creator Lab and Academic Lab are part of ClexaCon, but to attend you must purchase specific badges. There are larger breakdowns of the events on the ClexaCon website and I posted a feature about both of them last month. The Creator Lab runs from 9:30-7 pm and the Academic Lab runs from 9:30-4:30.
From 2-3:30 Speed Friending will be taking place in the Tropicana Lounge. Whether you came to the convention alone or are just looking to grow your friend group this event is the perfect thing to check out. There are also two other events that kick off at 2 pm today. From 2-7 ClexaCon will be doing a Pool Takeover, which coincides with Badge Pickup. For the first time Badge Pickup will be on site and will occur at the Tropicana Pool. The Badge Pickup portion will run from 2-8:30.
The final event of the day is Ships & Giggles. This comedy event does require a separate ticket. It will be on the Main Stage from 8 pm- 10:30 pm. If you want to attend this there may still be tickets available and you must purchase them before you attend.
If I don’t see you today, see you tomorrow when the doors open at 9 am for VIPs and 9:30 for the rest of the attendees.
