We look at the Hunt (organised by the Meeroos and BeYou), the Breedables Fair, the Art Gallery andone of the great courtyard spaces that were prominent this year – this time for FIN. And we also talk to the designer SkyRider Varriale, who exhibited at the Expo this year, sponsored a region, and donated two houses to the popular Home Decoration competition.

Prim Perfect and Designing Worlds have run talks at the Home and Garden Expo since (gulp) 2011 … and we’d like to invite YOU to be a part of this year’s series of talks with designers, landscapers and creatives within the Home and Garden market.

We’re planning to host events at 2pm (and, if needed, 5pm) every day. If you would really LOVE to give a presentation, but can’t make that time, contact us and we will see if we can fit you in.

We are happy to host talks, presentations, interviews, question and answer sessions and show and tell events. It’s an opportunity for designers to share ideas, for people to meet their favourite creators, for communities to come together and talk about their culture and ideas. We’re very open to hosting what YOU want to tell us about!

We are also planning to have some of our popular “Show and Tell” events and hopefully some panel discussions on Second Life.

If you would like to be a part of our programme at the Expo, please complete the form below with your topic and preferred dates and times. We will try to fit in as many people as we can!

Closing date: May 17th.

Then we talk to some of the people who make the tools that designers use in creating the wonderful things we love to buy and use: full perm mesh template creator Lyrical Bizarre, texture maker Gerard Tunwarm, popularly known as Uncle Gerry, soundscape creator Meriadne Merlin and scripter Torgon Woodget.

Finally we end, of course, with shots of the tradional daily lantern release.

And we take a quick peek at the Breedables region (Hope10), which helped to raise a wonderful total for Relay for Life. To date, the Home and Farden Expo has raised a staggering L$ 4,016,216, the equivalent of US$ 16,065.

Then we end the show with a last look at the beautiful lantern ceremony.
