SL19B Destination Guide & Over 225 Community Exhibits!
At the heart of SL19B are 225 exhibits that showcase a wide range of creativity across the many diverse communities in Second Life. Expect the unexpected as you explore and discover how each exhibit offers its own interpretation of this year’s steampunk theme.
To get started, check out the Community Experiences category in our dedicated SL19B Destination Guide. Not all of the exhibits are listed in the guide, so make sure to visit all nine of the exhibitor regions and walk around to enjoy all of them, and don't forget to pick up the gifts that some of them offer! The Exhibitor regions are: Enchant, Captivate, Astonish, Amaze, Imagination, Astound, Fantasy, Breathtaking, and Electrify.
In addition to the community builds, there are several birthday events happening. Our Destination Guide also features an SL19B Events category - make a point to join your fellow Residents in the festivities!
