      Once on the 8 freeway head west towards the beaches. The second to last exit is West Mission Bay Drive. Take that and turn right. Continue on West Mission Bay Drive by taking the right curl. Turn left at Quivira Road, and another immediate left. Turn right into the Marina Village Conference Center. Turn right in the parking lot and go to the far north end. Look for the building marked Coral Room.

      Note that if you are coming down from the north on Interstate 5, you will need to exit on Seaworld Drive, as you can't get onto 8 West from 5 South. For those who take that exit, here are the directions:

      Continue onto Sea World Dr
      Merge onto W Mission Bay Dr via the ramp to Ingraham St/Mission Beach
      Take the ramp onto W Mission Bay Dr
      Turn left at Quivira Access
      Turn left at Quivira Rd
      Destination will be on the right
    2. BJD Convention Etiquette​

      1. All participants must have a paid membership, regardless of age.

      2. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied, at all times, by a parent or guardian with a paid membership: please do not drop off to pick up later. The BJD convention is not a playground, and all participates are expected to behave or will be asked to leave.

      3. Treat other participants with respect. Refrain from foul language, offensive jokes, or ethnic slurs.

      4. Please do not handle another person's doll or property without permission from the owner.

      5. Please keep an eye on your dolls and other items brought with you. The convention is not responsible for loss, damage, or theft to items or person.

      6. Be aware that photos and videos of you, your doll(s), and/or your designs/creations may be taken and posted on public and private websites and boards (i.e.- Yahoo! boards, Den of Angels, or Zone of Zen), as well as information and photos printed in newsprint or magazines.

      7. The convention host reserves the right to refuse or revoke membership and ask that the person leave the premises, no refunds.
