How can we create great publicity for Brands and Events? Home and Garden Expo Discussion at 2pmSLT

At 2pmSLT today, we’ll be hosting a discussion in the Theatre on Hope 3, discussing a vital topic: How can we build brands and events in Second Life?

This is an open discussion, where people can discuss problems and also solutions that they’ve come up with – and share ideas.

And in addition, there’s a special prize to be won! We’ll be offering the chance for one attendee at the discuss to be featured on an interview on the long-running and popular Second Life TV programme, Designing Worlds – where they can discuss their own store, brand or organisation. Who would want to miss that?

Calling All Designers! Join the Conversation at the Home and Garden Expo with Prim Perfect!

Prim Perfect and Designing Worlds have run talks at the Home and Garden Expo since (gulp) 2011 … and we’d like to invite YOU to be a part of this year’s series of talks with designers, landscapers and creatives within the Home and Garden market.

We’re planning to host events at 2pm (and, if needed, 5pm) every day. If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions and show and tell events. It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas. We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

We are also planning to have some of our popular “Show and Tell” events and hopefully some panel discussions on Second Life.

This year's Theatre is waiting ...

If you would like to be a part of our programme at the Expo, please complete the form below with your topic and preferred dates and times. We will try to fit in as many people as we can!

Closing date: Friday February 14th.

Sometimes people speak, but often the event takes place in comparative silence – a break from the busyness (and the business) of the Expo – a time to reflect, remember and mourn. Set your windlight to midnight and join us – or watch from afar.
