[Events] That's right folks!! FlightSimCon 2016 Preparing for Takeoff! Barely in March and already we have over twice the amount of vendors listed over last year. There are other big named developers attending as well but I am not at liberty to announce who they are just yet. I'll just say this, never before in the history of flight simulation have there been so many developers in one building. Europe might have the biggest conventions, but this is the one all the devs are attending and it's an event you will not want to miss!
If you are coming, please leave a comment in this post. It will be nice to see how many ADX readers will be in attendance and I need to know how many gifts I need to have for you.
The event takes place on June 11-12, 2016, once again at the New England Air Museum. The Museum is located on the grounds of Bradley International Airport, and approximately 20 minutes north of Hartford, Connecticut, U.S.A. Registration for the 2016 event is now available at www.flightsimcon.com. For just $60, attendees can get full, 2-day access to the conference, all events, and to the New England Air Museum’s impressive collection of display aircraft. Discounts are available for students, student pilots, and groups.
