Registration is now open for FlightSimExpo 2021, slated for June 4-6, 2021, in San Diego and online.
According to organizers, FlightSimExpo will feature presentations from airline pilots, dispatchers, accident investigators, air traffic controllers, flight simulation developers, content creators, and an F-35 test pilot.
Complete with two panel discussions, the three-day schedule of seminars will be available for attendees in person in San Diego and livestreamed for registered online attendees.
In person registration is $70, which includes access to all Saturday and Sunday seminars, as well as the exhibit hall on June 5 and 6. Captains’ Corner — an add-on educational seminar series held on Friday, June 4 — is available for $10 as an add-on for in-person attendees. In-person attendees also receive complete online event access, including seminar recordings post-event, organizers noted.
Knowing that some attendees may prefer to participate remotely, FlightSimExpo is offering an online-only registration this year. For $15, the online-only registration includes three-day seminar livestream access and the ability to view product videos, discounts, and exhibitor “video booths” in the virtual exhibit hall.
Given the uncertainty caused by ongoing global pandemic, FlightSimExpo will be polling registered attendees, developers, and the broader community in March regarding the final format of the event. Event sponsors and exhibitors will be announced following those discussions, they said.
By pre-registering now, attendees help provide organizers with valuable planning information, they add.
“When we can approach sponsors and exhibitors with attendee registration numbers, we can have a much more productive conversation and deliver a conference that is most aligned with the community’s wishes,” says conference co-founder Evan Reiter.
To offer full transparency to attendees, in the lead-up to the event, the FlightSimExpo website will be updated weekly with attendee registration numbers and a list of developers who plan to attend in-person.
The in-person component of FlightSimExpo 2021 will be held at the Town and Country Resort in San Diego. Booking through FlightSimExpo, attendees receive a discounted overnight rate and special perks. As in past years, the conference has arranged travel discounts with Delta, Enterprise, Southwest, and WestJet.
For more information on this year’s event, organizers welcome the community to join Moosestaffa’s Twitch stream Saturday, Feb. 13, at 12 p.m. Pacific Time. Reiter will discuss FlightSimExpo 2021, developer feelings about the conference, and how the online component will work.
“If you have questions or thoughts around how we can organize this year’s show, join us on stream this Saturday,” he said.
