Global Flight simulation event FlightSimExpo is now in its second year, after a very successful event in 2018 - now with more sponsors, more speakers and more coverage than ever before.
The 2019 event is taking place at Renaissance Orlando at Sea World, FL, between the 7-9th of June. Threshold will be in attendance, reporting on all the X-Plane news as it happens.
We previously reported on the opening of registrations for the event back in December of last year.
The FSExpo team have now released the speaker schedule for the event, which is just around two months away.
ORLANDO – April 9, 2019 – North America’s community-driven conference has just launched its 2019 schedule! FlightSimExpo 2019 will feature presentations and panels from YouTube content creators, flight simulation developers, airline personnel, helicopter sim enthusiasts, and more during two days of back-to-back seminars in two conference rooms.
Event seminars take place on Saturday, June 8 and Sunday, June 9. Following a welcome and introduction by conference organizers, YouTubers Jason Miller and Steve Thorne (“FlightChops”) will speak about the benefits of sim for real-world training. Then, Twitch streamer Chillywillies will moderate a panel designed to connect attendees to flight simulation developers, who will discuss their backgrounds, their perspectives on the flight simulation industry, and what is next for the community.
After this, the conference splits into "Right Seat" and "Left Seat" rooms - the "Right Seat" playing host to Prepar3D, Gleim Aviation, Parallel 42, Virtual Fly, Mettar Simulations, Noble Flight Simulation, and Mindstar Aviation, who all have the chance to share news during their 30 minutes on stage each. Sunday features much the same kind of content.
Notably for us X-Plane users, on Sunday, the Left Seat will play host to an X-Plane landing competition.
Since we last reported on FSExpo, the following new sponsors and exhibitors have been added to the lineup:
As for media partnership, Threshold has been recognised as an affiliated media partner, and will be present at the event covering all the X-Plane news - so stay tuned for more FSExpo news!
