Conventions at Marriott Burbank are Fan-Friendly

Fan events are a blast. You get to convene with hundreds (sometimes thousands) of other like-minded people who love the same movies, books, comics, or games that you do.

However, in order for all the fans to descend on one location, it has to be able to accommodate them with ease. This is why conventions at Marriott Burbank are a great idea. It has space and amenities to make any of your fan events, like comic cons or anime shows, premier destinations.

The Perfect Event Space for Comic Cons and More


At Marriott Burbank, our Convention Center Academy Ballroom can fit a huge amount of people with lots of flexible options for dividing the space, if needed. 2,240 guests can comfortably fit in this 15,000-square-foot space with soaring ceilings.

Burbank Convention CenterThe City Ballroom is another option for a large meeting area, as it can hold up to 300 guests. We also have plenty of meeting rooms that can accommodate smaller groups, offshoots from a larger event, or more intimate special events.

Catering Options and Tech

You can additionally have your fan event catered. There are a wide variety of options that will suit any convention or event type. Create a custom menu to fit a theme, give guests a choice of foods from specialty stations, serve a lavish buffet, or host a sit-down, plated lunch or dinner.

If you have tech needs, we can cater to those, too. Stage lighting, technical lighting, and teleconferencing are no problem.

Overall, Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel is a convenient spot for any fan gathering. We’re a prime convention center next to Burbank Bob Hope Airport, and guests can stay in the hotel to fully enjoy the occasion, especially weekend-long events. Plan with us for a fantastic fan fest!
