What is a Hospitality Suite?
Think of the Hospitality Suites as the official room parties for the convention. Typically they will be themed, often along one or more genres of fandom.
Keycon’s Hospitality suites are more than just a couple of suites. It’s the entire 15th floor of the Radisson. The stories from conventions past have helped the floor transcend to legendary status. From hallway sing-a-longs to spooky suites; new friends found and old friends rediscovered.
All the Hospitality Suites for 2014 have been booked. If you have questions about Hospitality, please contact our coordinator Diana.

1502: 28 Games Later *Official Hospitality Suite*
“Stuck in an eight-bit bunker for three days. Food, drink, and twenty-eight video games in here with us. Playing them might be our only hope to maintain our sanity at this crazy convention…” After the biohazard outbreak, survivors sought places of refuge. This shelter functions as a VG training bunker and a sanctuary where survivors can seek asylum from the madness of the con.

1518: Uncle Vics RecRoom
It began when Victor was hit by a strange white light that left half his face sunburned. He began to act eccentrically, much more than usual. He kept watching Earth v. The Flying Saucers. He stopped working (which was not hard as he was retired). He began having strange dreams and visions which boiled over when his wife found him sculpting a model of the Radisson Downtown using mashed potatoes.
It was going to be a Close Encounter of the Radisson Kind!
