The sixth annual Tangle Grid Halloween Expo is live now and will have its grand opening next Tuesday, Oct. 15. It will run until November 19.

The expo is fully accessible to hypergrid visitors at tanglegrid.net:8002:expo isle. (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 walk around and enjoy the haunted rides and other displays, she said.

Still room for more presenters

There is still room for more displays, both inside the main exhibition hall and outside, said Kling.

“Prims are not a worry,” she said. “Whatever it takes to build their displays.”

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.

“We also have a teleport room to other grids if anyone wants to add their grid,” said Kling. “I just need the hypergrid address and grid name. They can email that information.”

“The idea behind these expos is to help creators show off what they are doing around the OpenSim grids,” said Kling. “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.”

Tangle Grid, founded in 2013, is a mid-sized social commercial grid that focuses on creativity and community. It offers free homes and parcels to both residents and hypergridders, as well as low land prices. Standard 15,000-prim regions start at $15 a month, and variable-sized regions are also available. The grid also offers a-la-carte region prices, with $1 per month per 1,000 prims so, that, say, a 5,000-prim region is $5 a month.

The company also runs a sister grid, WestWorld Grid, where residents can connect regions for free that they host on their own home computers or private servers.
