Exhibitors can already start setting up for February’s Sci-Fi Expo on Tangle Grid.

The month-long exposition, accessible to hypergrid visitors, officially opens on Tuesday, February 5 and runs through March 5. The hypergrid address is tanglegrid.net:8002. (Learn how to hypergrid here.)

Visitors will be able to get freebie items, and also purchase content using the Gloebit currency. (Learn how to use Gloebits for hypergrid shopping here.)

This year, Tangle is adding a competition, where visitors can vote for their favorite displays, grid owner Leslie Kling told Hypergrid Business.

There’s also a large display outside the complex where visitors can take a ride on a shuttle craft to the grid’s Borg spaceship, Startrek Ship.

Tangle Grid has been running hypergrid expos for six years, said Kling.

How to set up your display

New exhibitors can just teleport in, grab an open spot, and create their displays, she added.

As with previous expos, presenters are discouraged from explicitly promoting competing grids. However, they can set up gates to the flagship stores wherever they might be on the hypergrid or hand out landmarks to visitors. In addition, they can sell content right at the Expo itself. The region supports the multi-grid Gloebit currency.

“The idea behind these Expos is to help creators show off what they are doing around the OpenSim grids,” said Kling. “The idea behind it was to get everyone involved at one location to show off their items to the rest of the metaverse. It doesn’t matter what grid you belong to as long as the items you are displaying stays within the theme of the expo that is going on at that time.”

For more information about the expos, please email expo@tanglegrid.com. Tangle Grid also has a self-updating sign and teleporter available for any grid or region owner interested in helping to promote the expos.
