Frequently Asked Questions - Attendees

Where will STARCON21 be held?

This year's convention will be held at the Westin San Diego Downtown in San Diego, California. Please click here for location.

Will there be a virtual attendance option?

After much consideration, with the safety protocols in place from the hotel, we decided to proceed with the in-person event.

Unfortunately, through our exploration, we confirmed that it is cost prohibitive for STAR to record and/or stream the live content for a virtual audience to participate at the same event.

What are the hotel's safety and sanitation policies?

Our program will follow all local health mandates in effect at the time of STARCON21, which could include social distancing and wearing masks.
