The sixth annual Tangle Grid Steam Expo is live now and will run until October 1.
The expo is fully accessible to hypergrid visitors at tanglegrid.net:8002:expo isle. (Learn how to hypergrid here.)
Visitors will be able to get freebie items, and also purchase content using the Gloebit currency. (Learn how to use Gloebits for hypergrid shopping here.)
This year, Tangle is adding a competition, where visitors can vote for their favorite displays, grid owner Leslie Kling told Hypergrid Business.
There’s also a large display outside the complex where visitors can take a ride on a shuttlecraft to the grid’s Borg spaceship, Startrek Ship.
How to set up your display
New exhibitors can just teleport in, grab an open spot, and create their displays, she added.
As with previous expos, presenters are discouraged from explicitly promoting competing grids. However, they can set up gates to the flagship stores wherever they might be on the hypergrid or hand out landmarks to visitors. In addition, they can sell content right at the Expo itself. The region supports the multi-grid Gloebit currency.
“The idea behind these expos is to help creators show off what they are doing around the OpenSim grids,” said Kling. “To get everyone involved at one location to show off their items to the rest of the metaverse. It doesn’t matter what grid you belong to as long as the items you are displaying stays within the theme of the expo that is going on at that time.”

Tangle Grid, founded in 2013, is a mid-sized social commercial grid that focuses on creativity and community. It offers free homes and parcels to both residents and hypergridders, as well as low land prices. Standard 15,000-prim regions start at $15 a month, and variable-sized regions are also available. The grid also offers a-la-carte region prices, with $1 per month per 1,000 prims so, that, say, a 5,000-prim region is $5 a month.
The company also runs a sister grid, WestWorld Grid, where residents can connect regions for free that they host on their own home computers or private servers.
