The expo has a variety of merchant and non merchant sponsorships available, as well as a variety of advertising options.  Breedable creators also have the opportunity to have a complimentary shop and an additional display area at the Expo. 

This year our theme is Holiday Windows with an over all Retro feel to the streets (It's A Wonderful Life, Miracle On 34th Street). Merchants have the option to participate in our Holiday Windows Display by decorating their shop windows.  Visitors to the Expo will vote for their favorites.  

NEW for 2017 is our  Christmas Collaborator Collection. A special area has been designed for invitation only SL designers which will showcase  New and Exclusive Limited Edition creations only for sale only at the Expo.  

As always, we are excited to include the Winter Breedables Fair in the Expo and we are so pleased to have the Breedables merchants back for the holidays again. The highly anticipated One Of A Kind Breedables Auction is back this year as well.  Breedable Creators have given generously of their time and of their hearts to create these special OOAK  Breedables.  And of course, Breedable Auction Houses are welcome and encouraged to one or more of their Auctions at the Expo. 

We will once again be providing recorded promotional on air advertisements prior to and during the Expo. Premiere Event Sponsor Merchants will be mentioned in the recorded promotions as part of their Expo sponsorship again this year. These generic radio promotions are available for all Radio Stations, Clubs and DJ's across Second Life to use to help us promote the Expo.

Arinultra Cay, Second Life   T1Radio announced their plans for party on June 14, 2015 to celebrate their 10th anniversary.  

The party will take place from 3 to 7pm at Relay dAlliez and will feature T1Radio's current air-staff, alumni and special surprise guests.

T1, the long time Official Broadcaster of  Relay For Life of Second Life, is the sponsor of the Relay Rockers team, and the party will be held as a benefit for Relay.

In January 2005, Trader Whiplash, who began the station along with Nuala Maracas, was a host for the late Alliez Mysterio's La Vie En Rose.  When Alliez and Tony Beckett decided to begin broadcasting to the club as Radio dAlliez, Trader was given the opportunity to learn to DJ.  He crafted his sets around classic rock and roll, a change from the pop and electronic music popular in SL clubs at that time.  The station broadcasted to La Vie en Rose and the Rue dAlliez sim, one of the first private 'islands' created in world.  By June of 2005 Alliez and Tony had turned their attention to the establishment of dAlliez Estates and were about to close the station and the club when Trader reached an agreement to maintain both. He changed the name to T1Radio and along with his best friend Nuala Maracas, began to build a staff.  Early members of T1Radio included Anthony Wesburn, Java Mama,  Sassyblonde Hebert and Rex Tardis, and Radio Riel's Gabby Riel.  Diana 'Dee' Wolfe and Madelyn Majestic also joined the station and continue to broadcast weekly shows.
The station remained in Rue dAlliez where it operated its home base club LEGENDS Classic Rock until 2011 when it moved to its own sim.

T1Radio and Relay For Life have become almost synonymous. When Jade Lily organized the first Relay For Life in Second Life T1Radio was there to support the fundraising.  Trader, a leukemia survivor, Nuala and Alliez began a team based at La Vie en Rose.  The team became known as the Relay Rockers and has participated in every Relay held in world. In 2006 T1Radio was asked to fill in when the scheduled audio was unable to continue following a grid crash and Trader and T1 stepped in and rocked the track well into the night.  The following year Fayandria Foley asked T1 to return and thus began a 10 year relationship between the biggest event and the oldest station in Second Life.  In 2014 the American Cancer Society and Relay For Life recognized Trader, Nuala and T1Radio for its dedication and contributions to what has become one of the largest Relay For Life fundraisers in the world by inducting them in the RFL of SL Hall of Honor. 
Today T1Radio remains a fun station with friendly DJs, great mixes of music and 24/7 Classic Rock the Way YOU Like It.  Hosts and DJs can apply to T1 by contacting Trader, Nuala or LEGENDS Manager Xyza Armistice.

T1Radio, Trader and Nuala remain dedicated to providing entertaining music for everyone. They remain dedicated to supporting Relay For Life as well as the Dreams community and the AviChoice Awards.

Spotlight on Relay Rockers and T1Radio- Interview with Trader1 Whiplash and Nuala Maracas

Everyone in Second Life has a unique story. How they discovered the virtual world and what inspired them to do what they do various from person to person.  Some may see Second Life as just another online game and to others it is much more than that.

Trader1 Whiplash is a cancer survivor and an avatar whose name is familiar to many who are involved in Relay for Life in Second Life. He is also co owner of T1 Radio and a founding member of Relay Rockers. Together with his best friend Nuala Maracas, they have worked tirelessly in the Second Life community with T1 Radio and Relay for Life events. 

It is people like them that add humility, purpose and inspiration to this virtual world, but you don’t have to take SLE’s words for it.
