The CTN animation eXpo takes place in the Animation Capital of the world Burbank, CA. Many studios are all within 8 miles of the conference.
The studios are gracious enough to open their doors to a "few of our guests". There is a limited number of seats available for the tours and the groupings are done through a lottery system.
The studio tours are announced in November and you are selected at random through a lottery system prior to the event. Those who get in will receive a notification the week prior to the show through their email account listed at eventregistration where they bought their ticket.
Whether you get on one of the CTN tours or not, you may still want to visit one on your own. The below list represents just a few studios in the area.
