Staying at Los Angeles hotels means that you can be in close proximity to some of the most exciting events around. One upcoming event that is sure to be getting some attention is the CTN Animation Expo. This year, the event will be held in Burbank from November 17th through the 19th. Read on for more information about this exciting event.

The CTN Animation Expo is a unique event as it is the only expo in the entire country that is dedicated solely to animation talent in the U.S. The expo brings together what other conferences lack such as workshops, presentations, recruiting, networking opportunities and more. The expo is in fact created to connect animation artists to the industry as well as studio executives. This year, events that will take place at the expo include artist panels and interviews, demonstrations such as 2D as well as 3D demonstrations, special exhibits, privileged access to networking with top companies, discussions with leaders of the industry, one on one critiques and more.

At this event there will also be special Lottery events that will only be available to a select few. These are unique opportunities to engage with some of the best animators in the world. One such lottery event includes admission to a special event at the Walt Disney Studios Lot. You’ll join artists as well as creators from Walt Disney Animation Studios for a special sneak peek at upcoming series and movies from the studio. During the event you’ll hear from lead animators Amy Smeed and Hyrum Osmond who worked on “Moana” as well as a special presentation of the newest Disney Animation short, “Inner Workings”. Another lottery event is “Breakfast with the Pros”. At this exclusive event, you’ll be able to talk one on one with some of the most successful people in animation today.
