AdventureX Convention in London - December 15th & 16th

Post by Lazzah »

Hi all, especially those Drifters in the UK,

DuncanB has alerted me to the AdventureX convention which is taking place in London on the 15th & 16th of December. See this link for details:

http://www.screen7.co.uk/adventurex - Note it is FREE!!!!!

I will certainly be there, it would be great if other drifters were there, we could have our own mini-convention!

Certainly looks interesting. I'm not quite sure of my schedule in December, but there's a chance I might be able to make it.

Hi, I'm one of the organisers, I hope some of you can indeed make it and take part in the goings on. We have a couple of IF folks giving talks about their projects but it'd be nice to get some representation from the folks here, so if you have a project you'd like to plug or talk about please get in touch via the site. Also please help spread the word, it will be free to attend ( as in we won't have anyone on the doors) but in order to do that we still need the funding to go ahead, which we are trying to raise via Indiegogo: http://www.indiegogo.com/adventurex2012
I don't think there are many opportunities for this kind of thing, so as I say please help spread the word I want this to happen :)

Damn! My daughter has arranged a family gathering on the 15th that I cannot get out of, so I can only manage the 16th now! :cry:

(Later:) I will probably be able to manage a morning visit on the 15th and/or any time on Sunday 16th

Anyone going?

:anyone:

I was hoping to, but the timing wasn't practical for me to get to London.
