Plans for VWF zones

Existing zones 

  • The other OSCC Expo sites are already available:  
  • Expo Zone 4
  • Expo Zone 3
  • Expo Zone 5
  • Expo Zone 1
  • These sites will be populated by the upcoming OSCC 2017


  • The VWF Fairgrounds will extend to other places on the Hypergrid
  • Hypergates will take people to other venues of the VWF
  • Others sites will be selected by a VWF managing group (to be formed).
  • The managing group will be formed by interested parties.

Themed zones (proposed plan)

  • Themed zones would offer potential for promotion of the theme and of HG.
  • The zones would by set up and maintained by interested communities.
  • Language zones (See the upcoming Hypergrid International Expo.)
  • Other possible zones: educators, vehicles, entertainment, HG grids.
  • These would provide an attractive introduction to the HG for new people. 
  • The would also provide content for videos and blog articles,
  • thus supporting promotion of the HG to the general public.

Promoting the VWF Fairgrounds

  • This blog will carry articles and videos about the Fairgrounds.
  • With particular emphasis on communities represented there. 
  • I hope the communities will promote their places at the fair.
  • I hope we will all promote to communities beyond virtual worlds.
  • G+ communities are especially good  for targeting communities. 
  • You can target "RL" communities the share the interests of your community.
