Hello HandyConners!

With only a few more days until HandyCon 3, here is your guide to finding your way around, feeding yourself and getting involved in what we have planned.



HandyCon 3 Floorplan

Note that this year have use of areas outside of the main hotel conference facilities. Attendees are welcome to game in the bar and surrounding areas marked on the map for Open Gaming. We have also introduced a Quiet Gaming Area for gamers who want to get some peace from the hustle and bustle of the main gaming room.

Food: You can find the special HandyCon 3 menu here. You can order from this menu at the Main Bar and at the HandyCon Bar between midday and 10pm each day. Please take a note of the name of the room that you are in and your table number when ordering food.

If nothing on the HandyCon Menu takes your fancy, you can order from the regular Main Hotel Menu for Room Service or if dining within the Lounge/Restaurant Area. Note that the regular Main Hotel Menu will not be available if dining in the Gaming Areas.
