Registration for Left Coast Crime includes a Welcome Reception, two special Breakfasts (seating limited), the Awards Banquet, and admission to all panels and interviews.

NOTE: The Convention Hotel is sold out on Wednesday and Thursday nights and the Hyatt Regency Bellevue is unable to add more Wednesday or Thursday rooms to our block. Rooms on those nights may open up as attendees cancel the convention and their hotel reservation. There are plenty of rooms available Friday through Sunday. Recommendations for nearby hotels can be found on our Hotel/Travel page.

Note to Potential Panelists
Panels are scheduled from noon Thursday through noon Sunday. Authors attending the full convention have a much greater chance of receiving a panel assignment. If you are unable to attend certain days, please let us know prior to the priority panel placement deadline of December 31, 2023. It is helpful for scheduling if you are as specific as possible as to your wants/needs for panels on the registration form. (Key words and phrases like “noir,” “food,” “love to talk about setting,” etc. are very helpful. “I can do anything” is not.) If you are unable or unwilling to accept your panel assignment, please know that replacement panel placement is on a first-come first-served basis, and is dependent upon other author cancellations for a panel that matches your experience.
