SL19B Update: Exhibitor and Volunteer Applications Now Open


Yesterday, Thursday March 31, Linden Lab announced it would began accepting applications from those wishing to be among the exhibitors and of the volunteer staff of the SL19B anniversary event for Second Life. For exhibitors, while going with the theme, Steampunk, is encouraged, it is not necessary to build strictly within it.

The theme for SL19B is Steampunk, but don’t let that make you feel limited! Just like last year, your exhibit does not need to stay in theme. Share your Second Life passions with us. Your interests. Your communities. Your world! Every year we celebrate because of you, the amazing and creative Residents who have chosen to call Second Life home. What has drawn you into this world, and what keeps you here? These annual festivities are an opportunity to show us what fuels your Second Life. Let's celebrate that together!

Those wanting to be exhibitors are asked to fill out a Google docs form (link). There are rules such as no "promoting buying and selling of goods and services" (stores and businesses can still have an exhibit, but have to follow rules), and exhibits need to be within the guidelines of a general-rated sim (for example no adult furniture). Scripted bots are not allowed at exhibits. While having a party at one's exhibit is fine, exhibits cannot "be used as a performance/music/DJ venue for the entirety of the event." Nor can exhibits be political in nature. And as there are a finite number of exhibit parcels, there is no guarantee of being accepted. People can request a larger-sized parcel, but must explain why the size is needed. Exhibitors can have two co-builders with access to the plot.

If you have the Second Life spirit and stamina to promote SL19B events and serve as a guide for huge crowds, we’d love for you to fill out the volunteer application by May 8th, 2022!

Those wanting to be volunteers have another Google docs form to fill out (link). They are expected to be courteous to others and be able to work in shifts of at least two hours. They must wear assigned t-shirts and need to have an overall appearance and profile that fit within the General-rated maturity level theme of the SL Birthday. Applicants are asked if they want to be greeters or stage crew, and if one of the latter which position. Those applying are also asked which type of mesh body they usually wear so a crew shirt that properly fits will be available.

Like with performer applications, those desiring to be exhibitors and volunteers for the SL19B have until May 8 to apply. As a reminder, the SL19B takes place from June 16 to July 5.
