03.20.2014   New Facilities for Parents and Children at ECCC

Posted by: Andrea D New Facilities for Parents and Children at ECCC
Emerald City Comicon has introduced a few new elements to this year's convention, and we wanted to make sure our attendees knew about them. Today we're introducing the New Parents' Room, Family Break Room, and Stroller Check.

New parents and babies are welcome to visit our New Parents' Room (WSCC room 201) for a quiet respite, far, far from the main floor. We'll have a place for you to feed and diaper our youngest attendees.

Next door in the Family Break Room (WSCC room 203), kids and families can take a break from the hustle and/or bustle of the show for a quick change, snack and just de-stimulate for a bit.

Across the hall we will have a Stroller Check (WSCC room 214) to park your wheels for a while, for when you just can't haul the cart around the show any more. Donations for this service will be accepted with proceeds donated to Child's Play.

Emerald City Comicon has introduced a few new elements to this year's convention, and we wanted to make sure our attendees knew about them. The first amongst them is... The Quiet Rooms.

The Quiet Rooms have been put aside for those who need a mental health break from the convention floor, be it due to personal preservation, social anxiety, or health issues. Strict volume levels will be enforced, as this is for resting, not socializing. WSCC rooms 212 & 213.
