EVE Online Fanfest 2012: March 22-24

The Eighth Party at the Top of the World... now in a new location!

It is time to start marking your calendars for the 2012 Fanfest in Reykjavik, Iceland, held for the first time in the brand new Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre; an amazing new home for Fanfest that welcomes us with open arms.

I guess it is also time for me to reintroduce myself to all of you since my debut in Fanfest 2009 (actually I was the event manager for Fanfest '07 and Fanfest '08 as a contractor). I am CCP Tyr, your personal Fanfest guy. My goal is to bring you exponentially better Fanfests, and I think I have managed to do just that. But with the explosive growth of Fanfest the last couple of years, and especially the Party at the Top of the World, I have decided to refocus the event on you, the attendees. More EVE stuff, exclusive Fanfest attendee treatment at the party, improved Pub Crawls, DUST 514 goodies and more.

And please, by all means, if you think there is something I can do to improve your Fanfest experience, drop me a line and give me your valuable feedback –

Back to the important stuff, Fanfest 2012!

Fanfest brings together players in a massive celebration of EVE Online. Travelers from all around the world gather in one of the most beautiful and unique locations the planet has to offer. Allies and rivals alike set aside their in-game differences to share drinks with one another and forge new friendships. CCP developers mingle with the community, always up for  "talking shop" and getting to know the fans.

Iceland is one of  the world’s must-see vacation destinations, and if you haven’t been to one of our previous Fanfests, we encourage you to come.The many wonders of Iceland await your arrival. The Sisters of EVE Program will give your friend or partner a chance to visit Iceland along with you: Details regarding the program coming soon.

Get ready for another crazy weekend of:

Further details, including flights and accommodation and Fanfest 2012 Access Pass availability, will be announced later, as the event draws closer. Stay tuned for further updates.
