2017 BIZ: IMA: Virtual Worlds Fair has an initial site: OSCC, Thirza's HG exhibit: : A project of the HG Chamber of Commerce

Virtual Worlds Fair has an initial site:
Thirza's HG exhibit at OSCC:

A project of the HG Chamber of Commerce
AvaCon hosts the OSCC and provides a persistent site for the annual builds there.  This matches the Virtual Worlds Fair concept of a persistent collection of exhibits.    Thirza Ember has a special site there that tells about the Hypergrid.  That makes an excellent gateway to introduce newcomers to the worlds of the Hypergrid.  .

Objective

  • Publicize and promote the virtual worlds of the Hypergrid.
  • Provide a place for new people to get acquainted with offerings of the Hypergrid. 
  • Provide a place for communities and merchants to show their offerings.
  • Encourage promotion of Hypergrid worlds to the outworld.

Concept

  • The proposed Virtual Worlds Fair is a distributed place.
  • A collection of venues connected by hypergates.
  • It would have events sometimes to promote specific venues 
  • But the main feature will be persistent venues ready for visits any time.
  • So when you meet new people, you can give them a LM to the Fair grounds.
