Game: Tron / Flynn Lives
Type: Live Event
Location: Justin Herman Plaza, San Francisco, CA
Date: 8 pm, April 2, 2010
Encom International has issued a press release about an upcoming event by Executive Consultant Alan Bradley where he “will introduce the latest addition to the Encom International product library” at 8pm on April 2nd in Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco.
There is speculation that you will need an Encom ID Badge in order to attend the event, but neither the Press Release nor the IGN interview with Alan Bradley talk about that. It could be that having a badge will move you to the front of the line in order to attend the event, but I would be surprised (and severely disappointed/upset at TPTB) if non-badge holding attendees were turned away completely. Especially since it can take 2-3 weeks to receive your badge after completing the game at Arcade Aid and the PR was issued just a few days ago. But you should be aware of the possibility in case you’re traveling to SF to attend the event.
Update: The badge question has been answered in another Flynn Lives forum thread.
Bring your Encom badges if you have them – if not – come anyway.
I think that there will be a VIP section for Encom employees (so badges needed for that), but the event is open to the general public.
So if you have a badge, bring it, especially if you want to get closer to the action. If you don’t have one, you’ll still be able to attend the Press Conference and the Flynn Lives meet-up prior.
