ExileCon, the first official Path of Exile convention, is in a week! The GGG have updated the ExileCon web page with the schedule for the event. They will continue to tweak the schedule over the next week if various presentations or speakers change. This news post is primarily aimed at attendees. If you're interested in just information about the ExileCon Announcement Livestream, then they've been slowly updating their Livestream post the time.
For attendees with a VIP or Ultra VIP pass, the weekend kicks off with a VIP dinner on Friday evening at the Wildfire Churrascaria. It's a meat restaurant primarily but vegetarian options are also available. The 250 player VIPs will be joined by 50 GGG staff members, intermingled at the same tables. The restaurant is located at Shed 22, Auckland and the dinner will start at 6pm on Friday November 15.
In the Aotea Square, GGG are building a big registration tent where you can pick up your badge. In order to do so, you'll need to show the QR code that is visible on your PoE account page on the website. They'll also email you a copy of this code for convenience.
The registration tent is open during these hours:
Friday: 2pm - 8pm
Saturday: 7am - 5pm
Sunday: 9am - 5pm
You must show photo ID that matches the name on your ticket, and because GGG need to check your age (the event is a Restricted 16 event). You'll also need to carry your ID for the whole event because GGG will be spot checking that people's badges match their name when they enter the venue.
WHEN TO ARRIVE ON SATURDAY
The keynote presentation starts at 10am, but there's an hour of seating time and pre-show speculation (streamed both to the internet and the main theatre) beforehand. GGG recommend picking up your badge on Friday and then arriving around 9am to get seated and comfortable before the big show. Regular badges will indicate either "Stalls" (bottom floor) or "Circle" (middle floor) for seating, so that attendees know which floor has room for them on.
COSPLAY WEAPON POLICY
GGG will check All cosplay weapons that brought to the venue to make sure that they are not capable of harming anyone.
