Escape Room bookings are scheduled at Trapology, Red Fox Escapes, and Boxaroo with start times between 9:00 AM and 4:00 PM. It will take you 10-20 minutes to get to your game, depending on where it is, and what mode of transportation you choose. Please plan accordingly. Here is a guide to getting to your escape room.

Lunch

We suggest you get lunch near the Marriott or near the escape room you visit, depending on the timing of your escape room and workshop.

Birds of a Feather

These are informal small group discussions with other RECON attendees. Discussion topics were chosen based on your responses to the RECON Registration Survey. These will be led by a RECON facilitator, but they are really your chance to ask questions of your industry peers and give back to the community by sharing your knowledge and experience. 

 

There is no advanced sign up for Birds of a Feather. You are welcome to join and leave these discussions based on your escape room and workshop schedule. Try to minimize disruption to the conversation as you arrive and depart.
