SL-BaSE – the Second Life Business and Social Expo

From Eschatos Graves…

As was noted this week in the Metaverse Messenger, we’ve started
up a new division, Metaverse Conference Management, to develop a new series of meetings. The first of these is SL-BaSE, the Second Life Business and Social Expo, which is (obviously) going to focus specifically on Second Life.

What: ….. SL-BaSE
When: …. June 4-7, 2009
Where: … Portland, OR
Web: ……

We’re splitting up the Business and Social parts into individual conferences, with the Business Conference running on Thursday and Friday, and the Social Conference running on Saturday and Sunday. Additionally, on all four days there is going to be an exhibition hall featuring vendors displaying their SL-oriented products and services, from in-world scripts and gadgets, to assorted real-world hardware.

There are four options for attending SL-BaSE, a Full-Conference pass, a Business Conference (w/expo) pass, a Social Conference (w/expo) pass, and an expo-only pass. Also, there are deep discounts for early registration, saving as much as 68% off the at-the-door rates.

We’re still very early in the planning process, but we have the basics.

The Business Conference has 5 tracks, with 4 sessions on each of the 2 days. The tracks are:

and “Sponsored”

The Social Conference has 5 tracks, with 4 sessions on Saturday, and 3 sessions on Sunday. The tracks are:

Business “inSL”
Art & Culture
and Machinima

We are currently taking “Track Proposals” for any of these sessions, and hope that many NPC folks will send in concepts for presentations, especially in the “Education”, “Non-Profit”, “Art & Culture”, and “Community” tracks!

More info (and a full schedule, such as it is at this point) is on the website.
