The Hyatt Regency and Sheraton Grand will be the site of all Bouchercon 2020 programming except for the Opening Ceremonies and Saturday Banquet/Anthony Award Ceremony which will be held at the Sacramento Memorial Auditorium. The Auditorium is a short walk from the hotels, and transportation will be available for those who desire it.
There is no “headquarter” hotel. Programming (panels) and events will be held in BOTH hotels. Registration and the Book Bazaar (where you get your free books) will be at the Sheraton. The Book Room (where you buy books and where authors will be signing after their panels) will be at the Hyatt.
