If this was discussed before my apologies for repeating an old story.  Interesting that the return address is San Diego, yet the envelopes were postmarked in Michigan.  Businesswise is it actually cheaper to get an out-of-state mail service company to mail the badges as opposed to one just down the street or at least somewhere in the same metropolitan area?

To me, it seems like... it might be because the badges themselves are most likely manufactured out-of-state, but the return address is in San Diego because that is CCI's base of operations.

That's just my educated guess.  ^__^;;

I got my press badge yesterday as well. It looks like a normal badge, but they gave me a 'press' ribbon to stick onto the bottom of it.

WONDERCON ANAHEIM 2018 TOUCAN TIP OF THE DAY! #22: WCA Adds New ESports & Diversity Lounge + Future Tech Live!

WonderCon Anaheim is pleased to announce the addition of the Red Bull Presents ESports & “We Are” Diversity Lounge, which will be open all weekend long in the new Anaheim Convention Center North building in Room 155. Red Bull makes an exciting entrance to WonderCon Anaheim, presenting the first stage in integrating ESports and Pro Gaming into the Comic-Con International world!

In this brand new event space, Red Bull will offer gaming stations spotlighting gameplay in a tournament format, charging stations, and a lounge area that will also introduce the “We Are” diversity in gaming and tech campaign (produced in cooperation with the ESA Foundation). We invite you to come in and play games, immerse yourself in the world of ESports and the life of a pro-gamer, meet the Wings team and learn more about Red Bull, as well as more about the women who are game-changers in tech in the “We Are” Gallery. Part of this inaugural celebration will include some fun giveaways!

Where: Anaheim Convention Center North 155
When: Friday: 11:30–7:00 • Saturday: 10:00–7:00 • Sunday: 10:00–5:00


Future Tech Live! Update
We first told you about Future Tech Live! way back in Toucan Tip #14 on March 6 (seems like eons ago!), but we now have an update on some of the exciting things going on at this new WonderCon feature. FTL! is located right next to the ESports room in Anaheim North, in Room 154, and you’re going to want to visit early and often, because it’s going to be an absolute blast! Here’s the details:

Future Tech Live! is excited to show off the latest in tech and innovation at WonderCon Anaheim 2018!
We will be showcasing some terrific tech this spring, including:
Multi-player VR gameplay with Hologate
The future of commercial transport—heavy duty drones
An arresting new sound solution from MAX-D!
A groundbreaking simulation and physics platform accessed in VR from SpaceCRAFT
A bountiful selection of some terrific VR experiences (Avengers, Game of Thrones, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find them) courtesy of FramestoreVR,
The debut of Mahabarrata as both an Augmented Reality app and as mixed reality in 360 domes courtesy of FulldomePro (a relaxing way to enjoy fully immersive entertainment).
Light Sail VR will present its latest, an awesome interactive horror narrative, Speak of the Devil.
The Void will be promo-ing their amazing “Star Wars: Secrets of the Empire Experience.” a remarkable Hyper Reality multi-player experience (beyond virtual reality), and previewing their new locations around the globe.
We welcome the return of the “A.I. Innovation Fair” with its focus on artificial intelligence, sustainable tech and advanced robotics. And a few more surprises are waiting: VR racing, Akon in 360/VR and … you’ll just have to come by and see!
