This week is the thirteenth Star Wars Celebration. This year it’s at Chicago’s McCormick Place conference center. There’s a couple fun opportunities for the handful of AIE members who will be in town to meet up:
- The Old Republic Community Cantina – Saturday, 7pm at the Marriot Marquis: Bioware is hosting one of their big game community meet-ups on Saturday night, which will be attended by devs, Bioware community leads and tons of SWTOR players from all over. These tend to be pretty fun opportunities to hear from Bioware and to meet players from around the world.
- AIE Meet-up – Friday, 7pm: AIE is hosting a much smaller meet-up at one of the hotels downtown. There will be food/drinks (probably Chicago pizza, beer, etc.) and a good amount of space for us in a suite. We’ve also invited a handful of other SWTOR community influencers and fan event volunteers. This one is not a big, public thing since it’s only a hotel suite, but if the crowd gets too big we’ll either go down and take over the hotel bar or there there’s a popular bar about 6 blocks north (Side Bar). See Discord for location details and click the upvote there if you think you’ll make it.
Hope to see a bunch of you in Chicago for SWC!
