Press Release: Call For Merchants For The Fifth Annual SL Christmas Expo
Calling All Second Life Merchants.. The Fifth Annual SL Christmas Expo Is Waiting For You!
The Largest Holiday Shopping Event in Virtual Worlds Supports the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Second Life
The Relay For Life of Second Life would like invite you to become part of the 5th Annual SL Christmas Expo, December 3 - 14, 2015.
The Expo is a holiday tradition, the largest Holiday Shopping Event in virtual worlds and supports the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life of Second Life.
The theme for this year is " A Frozen Christmas". Our four regions will be transformed into a Winter Wonderland with stores and entertainment venues carved from ice. Snow crunching underfoot, Christmas Carols filling the air and Expo-goers wandering through the shops of Second Life's finest merchants. Add Gachas, auctions, raffles, hunts, ice skating, snowman building and Christmas Tree Shopping to the mix and you have the recipe for the perfect Holiday Shopping Setting! Oh and let's not forget Santa Claus! All that’s needed is YOU!
Merchants can choose from 5 different Shoppe Packages from 125m square (with 50 prims) to 1600m sq. and 700 prims. You can also select indoor or outdoor locations. Some sizes and locations are limited so act quickly.
