The Con Space

TGIF/F utilizes over 5,000 square feet of meeting space that divides into four distinct sections, giving us the flexibility we need to hold a variety of simultaneous programming.

The main con space is comprised of one large space for events and whole-group panels. It features theater-style seating and a large projector screen for our fannish viewing pleasure. Right across the lobby is a smaller panel room for more intimate, circle discussions.

In addition to all of the con programming, we’ve got three different hangout spaces for you to make friends and find the conversations (or silence!) you’re seeking. No matter what your speed, there’s an option for you:

  • The Con Suite
  • The Quiet Room
  • The Party Rooms
  • The Con Suite

    The social epicenter of our con, the Con Suite is a large room right next to the main programming space that remains open during regular con hours. Drop by to decorate your badge, play board games, color some awesome coloring book pages, take on some of our activity sheets alone or in teams, scope out the great items up for grabs in our auction, or just hang out and talk with your fellow attendees.

    Not feeling the scheduled programming? Take over a table and have a panel of your own! We’ll have a corkboard up so you can announce it in advance, if you like.

    We also encourage attendees who make art or crafts of some kind to bring their stuff to sell, if you’d like! We’ll find you some table space, please just give us a heads-up you’ll need it.

  • The Quiet Room

    Need a little personal, introvert time but don’t want to spend it alone in your hotel room? The Quiet Room is just the place for you. Right across the lobby from the main programming, this is a silent space for reading, writing, using your laptop, coloring, doing a puzzle, or scrolling through your phone without the pressure of holding conversation.

    We’ll provide plenty of outlets so you can recharge both literally and metaphorically!

  • The Party Rooms

    Once official con programming ends for the day, we take the party upstairs! The main Party Room is one of the hotel’s King Suites reserved solely for after-hours bonding, snacks, and drinks. We reserve several adjacent rooms strictly for socializing purposes. If you’re just not ready to say goodnight yet, stop by and keep the conversation going all night long. No need to wander the hotel or refresh the Twitter tag — this way, you’ll know where to find people to hang with.
