Additional Guidelines

Every year we get additional questions as to what is permissible and what isn’t. The following may be subject to updating throughout the conference as questions come up. These additional guidelines will be updated for subsequent years.

  • Skyboxes are permitted so long as they conform to the following limitations
    • The entire exhibit cannot be in a skybox. There must be substantive content at ground level which highlights your organization and purpose (e.g. the ground level exhibit cannot be 2 poster signs and a teleport)
    • They fit within the prim limit of the parcel
    • They do not overhang the 24m x 24m footprint
    • They start at 1000m in the air or higher
  • Skyboxes do not have a height restriction so they can be as tall as needed.
  • Terrain can be terraformed so long as it does not interfere with the surrounding region – however terraforming on the region is blocked by default, so arrangements will need to be made for a time to turn this on and back off again. Maximum window for terraforming is 4 hours.
  • VWBPE is a professional conference and we expect all exhibitors and builders to be mindful of their conduct while on the property
