Norfolk Slim City– MWGA will be hosting the first in-world Second Life media expo June 1 through July 8, bringing together Second Life’s major media all under one roof.
“MWGA created an annual media expo to celebrate business as a whole in Second Life,” MWGA owner Lyric Navarita said. “This is a way for businesses, as well as the publishing industry, to get together and mingle with guests on a more personable level. I hope this expo opens a new form of communication and sparks interest to be more involved in what our platform has to offer - an opportunity to learn more about the publishing industry through our workshops, engage with those within the industry via social and networking activities and celebrate the achievements of businesses in Second Life.”
Several workshops will be offered on site from professionals in the media industry on a range of topics from their experiences in their fields, production and publishing and distribution technologies. A final workshop will also include applying guided imaginary to the SL experience from Pura Vida Wellness Resort.
"The MWGA Expo is a unique event raising awareness of the talent and diversity of media available in SL and will hopefully encourage new people to participate in this constantly evolving industry," MWGA Media Expo participant MANIERA LLC's COO Aphrodite Brianna said.

Performances will also be held by radio’s KHNY Honey 103 (June 16) and BoSL Radio (June 17) as well as dance troop Dazzlers (July 8). A media panel will be held later in the month to discuss various industry topics, and an awards banquet will finish off the expo July 8 and recognize elites in their fields at The Rose Theatre. Banquet guest speakers include Avenue Staff Writer Spruce Canning and MANIERA LLC CEO Topaz Joubert.

Media representatives will be available from some of the most prominent media in their fields, including: Metaverse Broadcasting Company/The Metaverse Tribune, SL Enquirer/Press Pass Media, Best of Second Life Magazine/BOSL Radio, AvCON Magazine, Too Sexy Magazine, ICON Magazine, MANIERA LLC, Zindra Expo, InWorld Magazine,, Friday Night Talk Show, PlsRadio, KHNY Honey 103 and media distribution technology giant SasTech.
