Meet the Massively team at DragonCon '09

Shawn Schuster

As we are just now recovering from BlizzCon and GamesCom last week, we realize we're not even close to being through the summer convention season yet. DragonCon in Atlanta, GA and PAX in Seattle, WA both start next week, and you can bet there are more than a few of us at Massively who will be attending these major conferences.

At DragonCon specifically, the Massively staff will be in full force as four of us plan to attend in one form or another. Some of us will be speaking at panels, some of us will be doing interviews and one of us is even on the MMO Track planning staff. And then there are the parties! Want to party with us? Follow along after the jump to learn where we'll be and how you can get your hands on some Massively swag.

If you've ever been to DragonCon before, you may be well aware of the epic parties thrown by Funcom each year. This year, we're proud to announce that we're teaming up with Funcom to throw one of the biggest parties ever!

On Friday, September 4th at 10pm EDT, you can join the Massively team at "FunCon", held in the Atrium level of Atlanta's Marriott hotel, rooms A601 and A602 (highlighted in gray on the right side of this map). There will be a live DJ, Funcom developers, special surprise guests and plenty of Funcom and Massively swag to go around. For more information on FunCon, check out the official announcement on their forums.

If that's not enough, you can also join us at the SOE party on Sunday night at 10pm EDT, although in a much less "official" capacity. We'll all be pretty slap-happy by Sunday night, so just come hang out with us! Of course you can always just say hi if you happen to catch us roaming between panels.

Next week we'll have more detailed information on where we will be at any given time, including who's attending, which panels we'll be hosting, booth demos and more. If you're planning on attending the event, let us know in the comments below. We hope to see you all there!
