NYCC 2015 Highlights: Friday
It’s the second day of NYCC, and the convention is going to be as busy as ever! There are some big things coming to the convention. With so much on the schedule, it’s all about picking and choosing what will be the best for your schedule and having a contingency plan if it doesn’t work out. Many of the panels are longer, and will require some dedicated line standing in order to get in. And for those of you who wish to enter the Main Stage, remember that all panels in that room require wristbands.
Try not to get too stressed out and make sure to download the NYCC app from iTunes or the Google Play store to sort out your entire day with ease. Check out our list of events that we’re looking forward to the most here and see the full schedule for Friday here.
