Notice: Addition of Bag Inspection

At the recommendation of the venue, Otakon 2017 will require bag inspections upon entering the convention space at the Mt Vernon Place doors of the Walter E Washington Convention Center and the M1 level of the Marriott Marquis. We apologize for any inconvenience or disruption this may cause. The bag inspections will be conducted by a third party contractor, and we are working with them to streamline the process as much as possible. You can help by keeping your bag organized and accessible, and by making sure you are not bringing in anything you are not supposed to (our list of restricted policies can be found on our website at otakon.com/info/general-policies). If you have any questions about the new procedures, you can contact our Access Control team at help.otakon.com.
