If you’ve been around ROBLOX for a while, you might know a thing or two about our annual fan convention. First, it was the ROBLOX Rally. Then it was the ROBLOX Game Conference. For 2013, we’ve decided to debut a new name: BLOXcon! This year, we’re focusing not just on games, but building – the core of ROBLOX – and we felt the old name didn’t do the new direction justice.
While we’re excited about the new name, we’re more excited about the scope of BLOXcon: we’ll be hosting it in three cities (Chicago, London and New York City), and offering exclusive entertainment at each event. We just launched a brand-new BLOXcon site with the latest details (and plenty more to come), so be sure to check out BLOXcon.roblox.com today. Ticket sales will be up and running in one week! To recap, here are the dates and locations of this summer’s BLOXcons:
- 7/13/2013: BLOXcon Chicago @ The Museum of Science and Industry
- 7/27/2013: BLOXcon London @ Royal Air Force Museum
- 8/10/2013: BLOXcon New York City @ Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum
We’re currently finalizing agendas of events and activities, which will be unique to each BLOXcon. Things we have in mind include hackathons, tech labs, Q&As with successful ROBLOX builders and game developers, film festivals, award shows, and much more. Stay in the loop by following @BLOXcon and @ROBLOX on Twitter, tracking #BLOXcon, watching BLOXcon.roblox.com and monitoring the ROBLOX blog.
