Hello Shiquers and welcome back to Nerdy Shique Universe! Time for another convention spotlight and it’s on Omni Expo 2016! I know you’re wondering, what does that mean? THIRD YEAR OF PRESS BABY! I am so happy since it is not only the third year but we’re doing it as a full team this time, if you remember Fox wasn’t with us and now he gets to be with us. So, let’s get to it!
Dates: March 4-6, 2016
This year the convention will be taking place March 4th through the 6th due to MegaCon being in May and four days for this year and don’t want to compete with that. So, why not switch and be a bit earlier this year? I know this post seems a bit late but decided to wait for the press announcement. The wait was worth it and can’t wait for it to arrive in the next three weeks!
Location: Double Tree by Hilton on Major Blvd. in Orlando, FL
This year the convention will be held at the Double Tree by Hilton at the Entrance of Universal. Yes, that’s the actual name, shouldn’t they shorten it to Double Tree Universal? Anyways, this hotel if you have stayed at it in the past for any convention or theme park visits, you may know it is steps away from Universal and looks over Orlando. If anyone is staying, it is smoke-free and parking will be $10 if you’re staying while it may cost us $15 for anyone coming to the convention that is not staying.
