Hotel booking issues resolved

Our hotel partner, Experient, has contacted us to let us know they are aware that some of our members were having difficulties getting through their website to book rooms today (receiving a 404 error).  They have informed us they believe they have found the problem and it should now be resolved.

Otakon and Experient both are sorry for the inconvenience this has caused.  If you are experiencing any trouble with their website, please call their customer service line (800-967-8852) to talk to them about hotel options and waitlist options. 

Unite The Right Rally Update

The National Parks Service has granted permits for the Unite the Right Rally and several counter-protests for Sunday, August 12th. All guns have been banned from the events and the DC Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) is planning to have a heavy presence to prevent violence. They have also prepared several emergency measures to prevent escalation. We recommend reviewing our travel advisory , our previous statement, as well as our safety information and the Visit DC safety page, and plan travel appropriately.
