Welcome to Frontier Expo 2017! On Saturday, October 7, 2017, we will be hosting our biggest community event yet!
For those interested in joining us in London and wanting to find out more about Frontier Expo, we’ve put together this overview which shows you everything you can expect on the day. We will continue to update our schedule with more information, as well as posting more news articles regularly for you to get excited about what’s coming on October 7!
Our venue is Here East, in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in London. As you enter, you’ll be greeted and each person will have to register and show their tickets in order to gain entry. You can bring your ticket either in print or on a mobile device. Upon registration, you will receive a goodie bag, a wristband, and a lanyard with a visitor’s pass. We will have schedules available so you are able to make the most of your day there.
Doors will open at [10.00am]. Once you’re in, you are free to explore the halls, exhibition space, gaming areas, and panels at you wish!
This is where all the major announcements of the day will take place. We will host three consecutive major talks with key content reveals: one for Elite Dangerous, one for Planet Coaster, and one for Jurassic World Evolution. Throughout the day there will be multiple interesting talks from guest speakers about topics close to the hearts of our beloved communities.
Please note that seating is limited (front row section seating will be reserved for Founder's Ticket holders), and standing space will be available in accordance with fire regulations. Make sure you are there ahead of time if you want to secure your place at the talks.
On our second stage we are hosting several talks and panels with industry experts, content creators, community members, and more! Drop by and ask your questions and participate in interesting topics.
If you are feeling nostalgic, visit the Frontier Arcade! Here you’ll be able to see and play a host of our iconic Frontier games and immerse yourself in the history of the studio.
