Apex 2015 Tournament Relocates After Fire Marshal Closes Original Venue

Apex Parking Structure

Damage to the Clarion Hotel parking structure

This year’s Apex tournament was supposed to begin today at the Clarion Hotel Empire Meadowlands in Secaucus, New Jersey, kicking off what would have been the largest Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Melee tournaments to date. However, due to damage from recent storms, the fire marshal had the venue shut down and ordered everyone in attendance to evacuate.

While this would have put an end to the event, tournament organizers and Twitch were able to quickly relocate Apex 2015 to the Garden State Convention Center and even provide transportation from the Clarion hotel. As a result of the sudden venue change, everything scheduled for today has been put on hold while all the equipment is moved to the new location.

Competitors will have a chance to sign up on-site on Saturday. Beginning next week, tournament officials will take refund requests from people who paid to compete or watch on Friday.
