The Venue, located in the Arena at the Anaheim Convention Center, puts lighting, touring and sound on center stage. The Venue's dimmed overhead lighting and tall ceilings will allow lighting and entertainment technology products to truly shine as the concert experience comes to life.
Fewer ID Checks
With the show now extending to the outer glass doors, entrances to the halls will be open so there will be ID checks at the perimeter doors. That means once you're inside the convention center you'll be free to move around the halls without other ID checks necessary. The open lobby will play host to an exclusive Member Center, digital media hub, new product showcases and more.

Preferred Badge Pickup on Show Days
Red and blue badge holders can pick up their badges during show days in Member-only pickup stations, located in the front and back of Hall D in the Anaheim Convention Center. General badge pickup locations are located throughout the hotels and convention center.
The Grand Plaza
The Anaheim Grand Plaza, which runs between the Hilton and Marriott leading to the main entrance of the Anaheim Convention Center, features an outdoor stage for live music throughout the day and an area for Members to network.
With the addition of the Grand Plaza and the move to perimeter security in the Anaheim Convention Center, Member registration will be moved from Room 201 in the convention center, to the Platinum Ballroom in the Anaheim Marriott. The Platinum Ballroom in the Anaheim Marriott is the place to take care of badge name changes, additional badge requests, spelling corrections and also the location where children under the age of 18 will pick up their badges.
