Guild take 3 -- Finally got it right! Convention Centre! 8 Years, 3 Months ago  
OK, this is more what I had in mind. It's an attempt at a basic convention centre layout, with an entrance foyer, a large conference room on the first floor, a large lobby, and a second floor with several small meeting rooms. Anyone who's ever gone to a conference at a big hotel is probably familiar with this sort of layout (in my experience, the lower floors of hotels are dedicated to these sorts of meeting rooms, with guest rooms on higher floors -- and the meeting rooms are usually accessible via escalators directly from the lobby)

I suppose I'm still missing a registration desk/concierge, but I could easily convert the small library into one and keep the basic layout the same. I also like the variety of the rooms -- the middle one is pretty dinky, with no window, while the one on the far left upstairs is nice enough to get a window overlooking the lobby.

And I also deliberately made it symmetrical and square -- nothing too elaborate here. Tried to go for a good "corporate" look, a cookie-cutter used in several different cities to save money on design. Buy one basic layout, build it everywhere you go.

Finally, before I get to the pics -- I experimented a little with lighting in some of these, by accident. I noticed that the placement of the light at one point made it look like nighttime outside, so I put together a few shots of someone trying to get into the conference after dark. She's having trouble getting past the guard, somewhat awkwardly holding her weapons. "I promise, I'm not going to start any trouble...."

Hope you enjoy!

Very nice indeed, L! You keep giving me ideas, which I'll happily steal. Keep it up!

Hmmm...

Y'know, L, for someone who SWEARS he's NEVER been to Shore Leave, that looks AN AWFUL LOT like Hunt Valley Inn on a Shore Leave (or Balticon, which is WORSE!) weekend!!
Right down to the hottie in leather and a BIG SWORD trying to sneak into the con on Friday Night without a badge (Batches? We ain't got no batches. We DON" gotta show you no stinkin' BATCHES!)!
I felt right at home.

FYI: I talked to the Game Room chair for Shore Leave 29, next year (2007); he approved the BIG GAME!!

See ya!
