Melrose Center: On the Road

As 2016 comes to an end, we’re already looking forward to some awesome events in January 2017. If you don’t believe us, check out our events page!

One such event will bring our team on a (short) ride from our Downtown Orlando location to the Orlando Science Center. Otronicon will be held January 13 – 16, and our staff will be there to demo some technology that we’re working to make available to for our Melrose members (and some that’s already accessible)! You’ll be able to participate in this virtual ring-side game event in one of four ways (or do them all). We’re calling it The Melrose Immersive Experience. We hope you’ll come find our booth!
