I know the formal schedule hasn’t been released yet, but can anyone speak to what’s happening when in a broad sense? I want to finalize hotel reservations, and I’m wondering if it’s worth staying through Sunday and leaving town on Monday. Anything happening on Thursday? Is that when the opening ceremony takes place?
While there has not been any official word yet (hopefully in the next two weeks), if you go by the schedule in 2017, the opening ceremony should be Thursaday evening, along with some other events in the evening. Sunday also had a full day of core proogramming with some extended programming as well. Given that, I decided to arrive at the convention Thursday afternoon, and stay all the way through Sunday, leaving Monday morning.
I’d second that answer.
Last time there was a fancy dress ball and a couple of other things on Thursnight.
Sunday had good movies and other events, so I arranged to come into town Thursnight and leave Sunday afternoon.
Let me add that I share your apparent frustration, CDWard.
I just went to the press kit page hoping there would be a bit of scheduling info there.
The only things available were the schedules from 2013 and 2015!
A month out and you’d think the organizers would have their excrement together.
I messaged them over Facebook two days ago (July 17), and they replied: VERY sorry it’s taken us so long. We’re planning to start posting tomorrow. At the latest, we should have them up on friday.
Hopefully by day’s end….!
Could we please get the programming information in some kind of formatted form (CSV, a spreadsheet, Google Calendar)
