Roughly a month from the event, J1-Con unfortunately had to make a last minute move from 820 Spring Garden Street to the 2300 Arena, popularly known as the ECW Arena at 2300 S. Swanson Street in South Philadelphia. J1 Studios goes into the details on their site. In short, it was a sudden, emergency move to save this year’s event after complications with the previous venue.
On the upside, everything is scheduled to carry on regardless of the change. Bought a badge or tickets already? You should be fine. Just spread the word and don’t go to the wrong location!
Guests attending J1-Con 2017 at the 2300 Arena can look forward to air conditioning, lots of free parking, a huge Jumbotron-like display for panels and anime viewing. Also, for the first time ever, J1-Con’s after party will be 18+ t o enter, 21+ to drink. Tickets will even be open to the public for $10 (just $5 if you’re attending the Con).
Tickets are still available on j1con.com but can also be purchased at the door. As we previously reported, this will be the final J1-Con to take place in Philly. Next year, Jason and team make the big move to Atlantic City and we couldn’t be happier for them.
