Let's start with a quick look at the stellar setting.... The Burbank Marriott Hotel and Convention Center. Close to Bob Hope airport and major studios. Here's the main entrance to the hotel...
The CTNX 2014 "Survival Guide" program (l) and hand-out (r)
Also just outside the main entrance ... a quick snack buffet with an assortment of food and beverage options available for purchase. The on-site dining options at this show are exceptional .... reasonably priced and lots of healthy choices ... as well as full-service dining at Daily Grill.
CTNX really is "in the house" for this event ... this is a big hotel with lots of rooms and convention halls... all SOLD OUT and devoted to programming for this show.
Here's the map for Hall A and a sample shot of the interior...

NOTE TO ARTISTS --- never underestimate your SMALLS!!! Postcards and buttons are great for conventions. They are easy to pack and become a great calling card. A catchy image also BRANDS YOU!! Make sure your contact info is included on all small items. Use the backs or sides of buttons. Feature your full first and last name ... not just your "company name" or a logo. And make sure the font is easy to read!!! If someone likes the image and wants to know who did it --- make it QUICK and EASY to find out.
