Apple has started erecting WWDC artwork around the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose, California, ahead of Monday’s big developer event.

Banners featuring neon icons and other assets now hang from streetlights and transit stops downtown around the venue that will house this year’s Worldwide Developers Conference. Workers also started decorating the front of the convention center itself.

WWDC promises to be Apple’s biggest event of 2019 so far. It will bring our very first previews of iOS 13, watchOS 6 and macOS 10.15. We may even see surprise hardware announcements.

Apple’s keynote kicks off on Monday, June 3, at 10 a.m. Pacific — but WWDC doesn’t stop there. Throughout the week, thousands of developers will visit the convention center to take part in sessions Apple will host.

And to ensure everyone knows Apple is in town, locals will see WWDC banners and decorations all over the place.

WWDC is right around the corner

Photos of the artwork have started surfacing on social media days ahead of the event.

9to5Mac has also obtained images of workers decorating the side of the Convention Center. Look closely and you’ll see the words “Dub Dub” — a common nickname for WWDC.
