Registrations for Last Straw Production's Looking For Group Expo or LFGX are now open! Early bird passes are available for the first 500 registrants. LFGX will run between June 25-27 in Minneapolis, Minnesota at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
LFGX will also include the MMO Developer Awards, which is the "world's first award show designed specifically for massively multiplayer online games."
The MMO Developer awards feature fan-nominated awards, and fans will vote on their chosen games at partnering media sites. MMORPG.com happens to be one such site!
A brief description of LFGX is available below:
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. Games will be able to create more brand awareness and connect with the current and future players on a level that all MMO fans will come to love as much as the games themselves.
