Looking for Group Expo Announced


Minneapolis, MN– December 7, 2009– Last Straw Productions announced today the founding of Looking for Group Expo (LFGX), a massively multiplayer online game fan event like no other. Last Straw also announced a call for speakers and sponsors. Exhibit space will be limited to ensure an incredible experience for gamers during the inaugural event. The event will be held June 25-27, 2010 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Only a small handful of MMOs have individual fan events and with those, we see players who are forced to choose their favorite games or events based on what’s coming up and who they would like to meet with the most. The goal of LFGX is to provide the ultimate experience for all MMOG and virtual world fans to check out what’s new in the world of MMOs as well as meet friends across all games and participate in exciting MMO related events. LFGX will have allure no single game or company event can provide: an event for everything MMO related. Developer sessions, special VIP attendee events, game competitions, private screenings, guild meetings and more will combine to draw an incredible numbers of players.

LFGX offers a cost-effective solution for game developers and publishers to showcase their existing and future MMOs without the added overhead of creating their own events. Games will get exposure to current fans as well as prospective future fans with this unified event. Companies will be able to increase brand awareness and connect with current and future players on a more personal level through participation in LFGX.

LFGX 1.0 is offering key founding sponsorship packages only available through January. Please contact Jonathon Stevens at jonathon.stevens@laststraw.info or visit LFGX’s website at www.lfgexpo.com for more information or follow LFGX on Twitter to keep updated on the latest happenings.
