Be Part of the ROBLOX Maker Faire Experience!
by Andrew Haak
One of the best things about being headquartered in San Mateo, California, is we’re a hop, skip and a jump from the grounds of an incredible, annual West Coast event: Maker Faire Bay Area. For the second year in a row, ROBLOX will be showcasing the digital side of “maker” culture at the event. It takes place on May 18th and 19th at the San Mateo County Events Center.
This year, our space will be four times the size of our presence in 2012, giving you more room to talk with ROBLOX staff, meet other ROBLOXians, playtest new product development, and enjoy playing and building. We’re also inviting ROBLOX builders to our booth to showcase and discuss creations that illustrate the limitless possibilities of ROBLOX. If you have built something great (a scripted or mechanical model, a beautiful world or an adventurous game), would be comfortable presenting and discussing it in front of other Maker Faire attendees, and are attending Maker Faire, please fill out this form to let us know by April 21st, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. PT. We’ll choose a selection of submissions and work with you to become your own exhibitor at the event!
Entrance to Maker Faire Bay Area 2013 starts at $15 for a single-day pass, and you can purchase tickets today. You’ll not only get to hang out with ROBLOX – we love to see our hometown crowd, especially since BLOXcon is happening in more far-flung places this year – but also see a huge variety of other amazing and entertaining exhibitors. It’s a bargain.
Think of our presence at the Maker Faire as a mini BLOXcon. We’ll be demoing some of the activities and entertainment users will be experiencing during our events this summer (you can get tickets for all three BLOXcons here). We’ll have more information about the ROBLOX booth at Maker Faire Bay Area 2013 in the near future. We hope to see you there.
