While you’re at the event, don’t forget to join the conversation and share your selfies and awesome photos using #Otronicon. Remember to like Otronicon on Facebook and follow us on Twitter @Otronicon for live updates and to let us know how your day is going!
TIP 6: NOT JUST FOR KIDS!
Adult programming is back by popular demand. Enjoy everything Otronicon has to offer with your children during the day then come back to experience it in a different way. We’re talking keynote speakers, simulators, mature gaming competitions, the BART Nerdy Lounge and more. Otronicon will be open to all ages daily but Otronicon After Dark will take place from 6–10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and select areas are 21+.
TIP 7: DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP
Pose questions big and small to our staff and volunteers. They will be identified by a name tag and green Otronicon T-shirts. Don’t be shy — ask them anything from what’s the designated hashtag to where the nearest restroom is.
TIP 8: GET YOUR WAIVERS SIGNED
If you’re under 17 years old and won’t be accompanied by your parent or guardian, make sure you get your waiver signed before they leave. You will need the waiver to participate in Powder Keg Games’ competitions, play laser tag, enter the mature gaming area and more. A waiver will be needed each day, so don’t forget to bring it with you so you don’t miss out on these awesome opportunities!
