And because you demanded it C2E2 will be host to a DC talent search (information can be found at the DC booth).
Did I mention that we’ll be giving away tons of great stuff at the panels and at the booth? Well we will be so make sure to come and see us as soon as you get to the show. And just so you know I am very, very excited to be just hours away from eating Chicago-style deep dish pizza. I will also totally not be bummed by whatever you guys decide to bring to the panels.
Our friends with the doughnuts in Seattle are still in the lead for this year’s convention season but I’m thinking Chicago might have something up their sleevesâ€¦
