EVE Online Fanfest Announced: Better Time, Better Fanfest

2010-04-15 - By Svarthol

The next EVE Online Fanfest will be held on March 24 through March 26, 2011 at the Laugardalshöll Convention Center in Reykjavik, Iceland.  Fanfest is a massive celebration of EVE Online between players and developers.

Why March, and why in 2011? During his keynote speech at Fanfest 2008, CCP Hellmar shared his desire to hold Fanfest earlier in the year since the end-of-year Fanfests have often presented logistical challenges for both the fans and CCP. After careful consideration and research, we determined that March would be the best option for everyone. Travel and hotel costs should be lower since it's outside the tourist season, and we will be able to give players more detail on our myriad projects, sharing more of our future plans (totalhelldeath!). Above all, this will let us focus on Incarna - EVE's largest expansion project to date. We're sure you'll be blown away by what you'll see.

More information about Fanfest 2011 will be available in the coming months. Meanwhile, head on over to the EVE Online Fanfest 2009 Web site and feast your eyes on last year's festivities.
