Other events and stuff! With Star Wars and its new film around the corner there was a big sneak preview with an orchestra with the main actors from the film hosted behind the convention center. We were luckily, though surprised, to learn the event since we had a view of the fireworks from our hotel room and only found out it was Star Wars related the next day.
There was also a Nintendo exhibition event at the hotel where attendees can play games and win prizes.
The big outside event this year was talk show host Conan O’Brian hosting his show at the downtown San Diego theater. Guests of his included Game of Thrones, Walking Dead and more.
Right outside the convention center was also an Assassins Creed outdoor obstacle course (ala American Ninja Warrior) and a barbershop onsite! There was a Heroes tv outdoor set experience and small events sprinkled throughout the Gas lamp District as well.
