I am very excited for this year's annual conference. Not only has the GameRT been growing and doing a number of amazing things, but our presence and outreach at the conferences has been fantastic. Last year, ALAPlay had an impressive turnout with over 300 people coming down to explore gaming opportunities and play. We had Mayfair Games, Eagle Gryphon Games, SET Enterprises and Paizo on hand running demos of games and talking with librarians about gaming resources.
But that is only one night and many people can not make it to ALAPlay. We are missing a large number of conference goers and so ALAPlay is coming to the exhibit floor. We will have a gaming lounge on the exhibit floor that will play host to open gaming from the GameRT's Game Library, demos from publishers exhibiting at Annual (I have a few great names lined up but more on that later), and sharing/poster sessions.
I am chairing a committee to work on putting all of this together. If you have an interest in helping out, in re-imagining what the exhibition floor looks like... what it can be, then please join in.
I'm sure you already know I'm interested, but I'll just confirm it here! I'm excited for this space!
I would be interested in working with you on this too.
Fantastic. I will let Jenny know to add you to the space.
I'm excited to do anything to help!
I'd like to at least be in on the discussion, and actively help if I can. I shook my fist at the heavens when I realized prior commitments would keep me away from ALAPlay in Vegas. =)
Hi, count me in! I'd like to help with this too as well as ALAPlay this year.
I'd be happy to help with this and ALAPlay this year.
Outstanding! Thanks for all of the offering of help. I believe Jenny has added most, if not all of you to the Lounge Committee. I posted an initial thoughts posting there, so take a minute to take a look and share your thoughts!
