Hello Pete’s Robot Convention Attendees!
It is wild to think that we are less than two weeks out from the very first Pete’s Robot Convention! Here is an expanded look at the two days' events and how everything will shake out! FRIDAY
Pre-Registration pick up will begin at 4pm Friday on the Lobby floor at the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter. There you will receive your badge, lanyard, t-shirt and your two raffle tickets. Afterwards you will want to either drive or take an Uber from the Marriott to Darkness Brewing. If you choose to drive there is plenty of parking either at the AMC Theater or on the streets next to Darkness Brewing. You can also park along Riverboat Row which is between the theater and Darkness Brewing.
People should begin arriving at Darkness Brewing around 4:30pm with food being served starting at 5pm. The bar will be open to purchase drinks throughout the event. At around 6:15pm, we will start wrapping up the Meet and Greet and people can either walk or drive down to the theater.
(NOTE: IF the weather is pleasant, we would suggest that after you pick up your pre-reg package at the Marriott, you park in the Newport on the Levee garage or along Riverboat Row. The max distance from AMC to Darkness Brewing is 9/10’s of a mile with Riverboat Row being closer to Darkness Brewing. The staff will be walking from Darkness Brewing to the AMC theater so you can walk along with us!)
The movie begins at 7pm (with seating starting at 6:40pm). This is a private screening JUST for those attending Pete’s Robot Convention! Please have your badge on you at all times as you will need it for entry to the movie. After the movie is over, you are free for the night! If you are staying at a nearby hotel we would be happy to see you and talk robots at Molly Malone’s, which is right across the street from the Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter (21 & older).
Please see the attached map and make note of the following addresses:
Cincinnati Marriottt at RiverCenter - 10 W Rivercenter Blvd, Covington, KY 41011

If for any reason you are not able to attend Friday night, Late Pre-Reg pick up will be starting at 8am. Attendees will get to enter the showroom at 8:30am, a half-hour before general admission. From there the day is yours! You can shop, socialize, have lunch at a variety of area restaurants for lunch and check out one of the panels we will be hosting. If you have kids 12 & under, we will have free face painting and caricature prints available. Also, this was a late addition, but we are also offering a Recycled Robots Workshop from 9am-11am. If you would like to purchase a seat, cost is $15. You can do that here: https://www.petesrobocon.com/pre-registration
