We recommend comfortable shoes, a bag and/or backpack, sketchbook and pens/Sharpies. We also recommend pre-plannning a meeting place and time with your group in case you become separated.
We have teamed up with multiple, yummy, food trucks to come satisfy your hunger. Food trucks will be parked right across the street (Green St.) and will be serving during the entire period of the show days.
DesignerCon will take place no matter rain or shine. The weather in California can be tricky so check on the top toolbar of this site and see what it is before you head out but either way we will be waiting for you. If you’re traveling then usually a light jacket will take care of you even with the coldest California Fall day or night.
We are proud to announce that we have again partnered with the Hilton Pasadena as the official Designer Con 2017 hotel!

2 blocks from convention center
If you are flying in to go to the show then the closest airport to the Pasadena Convention Center is Burbank Airport (BUR); 16 miles distance from convention. Since this is a smaller airport it may not offer many flights especially from other countries; for that we recommend flying to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX); 27 miles distance from convention.
