Changes to Hynes Convention Center Entry Procedures - Bag Searches

In light of the recent Patriots' Day tragedy that happened only yards from the Hynes Convention Center last month, the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority has decided to institute a policy of bag inspection at all entrances to the building.

If you are carrying a bag, please be prepared to submit it for a brief inspection by MCCA security personnel whenever you enter the Hynes this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Help us show the city that Anime Boston is Boston Strong by moving quickly and efficiently through the line so we can minimize the impact on our traffic flow.

We thank you for your cooperation and understanding. Please direct any questions about this or any other security policy to Shamus Mahan, our Head of Security. He can be reached here on our Contact Page.
