ROBLOX is bringing BLOXcon to London on 27 July, 2013!
BLOXcon is the quintessential gathering of ROBLOX staff and fans, where building, playing, learning and making friends are the priorities of the day. As an attendee, you’ll get exclusive demos of new ROBLOX features, meet fellow ROBLOXians, see presentations by staff and veteran users, participate in interactive events and more!
What’s going on at BLOXcon?
Main Stage Presentation: 9:00 a.m., 11:15 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Every BLOXcon attendee is entitled to see the Main Stage Presentation. There are four shows – you chose one when purchasing a BLOXcon pass. If you’re in the 9:00 a.m. Main Stage Presentation, be to the Museum by 8:15 a.m. and look for the appropriate queue. You don’t want to miss anything!
CEO and Co-Founder David Baszucki and VP of Marketing and Brand Experience Brad Justus will lead a two-hour presentation covering a gamut of ROBLOX news and developments. We’ll showcase new ROBLOX features, give a bunch of awards, hold a Q&A session for all, and more!
R&D Lab: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. (open to all) , 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. (by reservation only)

Hackathon: 10:30 a.m., 1:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m.

There will also be opportunities to meet the ROBLOX staff (see who’s going here) and lots of ROBLOX schwag. We’re especially excited about the BLOXcon London body package, available exclusively at BLOXcon London when you purchase £25 worth of ROBLOX merchandise (shirts/hoodies/ROBLOX cards/fedoras/BLOXcon pins).

How do I get there?
The Royal Air Force Museum is located in North West London near the M1. Parking will be very limited! It is strongly encouraged that you take public transport. The RAF Museum website has more information on parking and public transport.
Do I have to bring a printed pass?
Printed passes are not necessary, but will help if there is any confusion at the badge pick-up table. Badges are organized and grouped by the last name of the person who placed the order. The registration staff will have a full list of attendees to help you find your badge.
Will there be food and drink for sale at the event?
Food and drink will not be provided at BLOXcon. There will be a BBQ set up on the Museum’s helipad, which is awesome. There is also a restaurant and café at the Museum, but seating is limited. You are encouraged to bring snacks that must be eaten in designated picnic areas.
Can I leave and re-enter the event?
Yes. As long as you have your badge you may leave and come back into the event space during open hours.
