Greeting my brothers in arms, please forgive the lack of activeness on the forums, as i’ve said before, i’m lying in wait for release rather than the run up.
I come to you today to invite you all to BritizenCon. setup by both myself and another citizen from the UK south east month meetup.
I know we had quite a few Imperium members come to CitizenCon when it was in the UK 2 years ago (yes i signed the flag too ^_^), and we are running with with the devs support too, for the years when CitizenCon is not on UK shores.
I hope you will join us for the fun day I have no doubt it will be, and if you can't come please consider supporting us if you can as support from the devs is not financial, or you can share the event with others. Another reason other than sharing because you should all go, is to ask if any of the admin/org leaders would like to talk on a community panel about the trials and errors in running such a huge org. We think it would make for a good panel and interesting to the audience to see and hear how much work really goes into running, organising, training, etc. If you are interested and up for it please let me know asap!
I have included all the relevant information below. Until next time, Kenetor out
Date: Saturday 22nd April 2017
Location: Radisson Blu Hotel (Manchester Airport)
What is BritzenCon?
BritizenCon is a fan-organised UK convention for Star Citizen run by the fans for the fans. We return for our second year and the event will take place on Saturday, 22nd April 2017, 1pm – 7.30pm, once again at Radisson Blu Hotel Manchester Airport, UK (see the Website front page, ‘The Venue’ for more information).
How can I attend?
A total of 300 tickets are on sale now via IndieGoGo. We had a lot of requests from people not able to come that wished to donate and help with the con and we see IndieGoGo as a way of doing that as well as taking a lot of the financial risk off our shoulders. Booking convention spaces are not cheap!
What is the event schedule?
2 Developer Panels with members of the Foundry 42 team. Brian Chambers has already confirmed he'll be flying in from Germany for the second year running and we're hopeful he'll sit on the panel, too!
Community Panel with content creators, live streamers or possibly founders of Orgs.
UK 'Dogfight' Championships. Our first live 'e-sports' tournament to determine who truly is the Top Gun of Star Citizen
Cosplay showcase, raffles, and a fan film festival, all with goodies for participation
We will also have a few hardware firms demonstrating their wares, at least one Software firm such as HCS Voice Packs & other exhibitors such as Orgs
Chance to mingle face to face with Foundry 42 (Manchester) Developers. We had over 20 in attendance last time and are confident of at least that many this time around
If we reach our crowdfunding stretch goal of £7k we will have a high-quality livestream of the event
After-party at the pub!
We're currently considering getting hold of a fully functioning Icarus Avenger 180 set-up to show off, another chance for you to experience VR and our friends at GameCab will be back with their latest, bespoke SimPit creations.
