We are pleased to confirm that we will once again have a big presence at the mega Dragoncon event (www.dragoncon.org). This is North America’s largest sci fi/fantasy convention and the event grows bigger each year. It takes place in Atlanta, Georgia from August 31st thru September 3. Tickets are $70 for the 4 day event that spans 3 hotels and includes a fantastic parade, parties that last well into the wee hours and a truly memorable experience. This is a show where you can “be whatever you want”. Costumes of all kinds are well appreciated and it’s a great place to meet friends from AO or the ever growing Conan community. To date , over 80 authors, stars and bands have confirmed attendance and the list will continue to grow. (the guest list is on the website) http://technorati.com/tag/dragoncon has some pics so you’ll know what to expect (GSP has some from last year too I believe!)
Funcom is pleased to participate in several of the convention gaming panels and we’ll have booths with a fan area, lots of prizes, a fan party and more.
We have confirmed that several Funcom reps will be attending including PR, Marketing, Community and Support. Grid Stream Productions will be performing at the event , Scott Allie of DarkHorse comics will be doing signings and we sincerely hope to see many from ARK, Anarchy Online, Conan fans and everyone who can possibly make it.
More information on our booths and panels will be forthcoming, but we wanted to post this reminder as hotels can be difficult to arrange and are sold out very early.
In order to help us prepare for the fan gatherings, it is extremely helpful if you can let us know if you will be attending this event. If you can make it, please drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with Dragoncon in the subject line.
