THIS YOUR CHANCE TO GET BEHIND THE WALLS AND DISCOVER THE FUTURE OF WARGAMING

Every year we organize the Slitherine Group's Annual Press Conference HOME OF WARGAMERS and we invite our development partners to present the games to our media friends. Each edition adds something special: in 2012 we hosted the event in Stresa and for the first time we had live coverage that hundreds of players followed in the forums. Last year, we hosted it in Fredericksburg, Virginia alongside Historicon.

This year we have reserved some space for you!

For the first time, anyone from the community, fans and players will be able to get a sneek peak at what to expect from us in 2014 and beyond. But that's not all, you'll have the chance to meet the developers, talk to them and PLAY GAMES.

All this in one of the most historically interesting places of Northern Italy: The Castle of Pavone Canavese, a magnificent place with over thirteen centuries of history.

It's going to be three days of fun and games, with developers such as The Lordz Games Studio, VR Designs, Flashback Games, Polar Motion, Ageod and many others attending!

The event takes place from Wednesday May 14th to Friday May 16th and we have two packages available:


Margrave Conrad Package

Shared double room (with one other guest) for two nights (14th and 15th of May)
Transportation from airport to and from hotel
Three Lunches and two dinners including King's Arduin's Dinner and the Gala Dinner (+ drinks)
Access to all presentations and gaming rooms

€ 300,00 all included (approx £265/$409)


King Arduin Package

Single room for two nights (14th and 15th of May)
Transportation from airport to and from hotel
Three Lunches and two dinners including King's Arduin's dinner and the Gala Dinner (+ drinks)
Access to all presentations and gaming rooms

€ 400,00 all included (approx £353/$545)


As you can imagine, we only have limited availability, so if you want to be part of it, hurry up and book you space!

Other important information
The Castle of Pavone Canavese is about 30 minutes drive from Turin's International Airport and 45 minutes drive from Milan Malpensa International Airport. To check direction to the hotel and accessibility information, visit the official site of the Castle.


We will be keeping this thread updated with news about the event so check back for details.


Here are some spectacular images of the hotel & conference centre!

I wish that my wife and I could attend, but times haven't been good to us lately. Maybe next year, if there is a repeat of the event. I hope everyone has a great time. Chris (Modern Wars dev team member and lead map maker).

might try to come, but I don't really understand what the event is...is there an agenda or something?

Also, I would have my own transportation, is it possible to get a lower price without the airport transportation?

The price is just for accommodation and meals in the hotel you have to get there on your own as we have no idea where you're flying from and that could range from nothing to thousands of dollars! :)

More details on the event will be coming soon.

OK, but the indicated prices seem to include transport to/from airport, so I was wondering whether it would be cheaper without this?

I'd be interested in what games will be there? I'm not familiar with most of the listed developers.

Ah I see - no there is only one price I'm afraid. It would be too complex for everyone to try and design their own package and we'd need a fully fledged tour booking system to do that and track it afterwards! :)

Perhaps I'll turn up in my campervan/RV and hurl abuse over the wall if you won't let me in.

There's easily room for a few campervans to park there.

Hi 76mm,

We are releasing more information on the event later this week, so you will have to be a tiny bit more patient :)

Cheers,

Thanks, the event was interesting and the stream was very well done, and our stream-viewer group size was not too shabby :)

Good times are mostly reserved for guests rather than for ourselves

I hope I will be able to write some proper updates here tonight as well. We got quite some cool things going on here. Let me share here in advance that Close Combat Gateway to Caen is coming out next month and will also be released on Steam!
